Pros: Light, Really attractive looking design, 64 bit processor, enough hard drive space, HDMI, UNIX
As a CS major I really needed an affordable computer that ran a UNIX based operating system (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS in this case) because Windows did not have the tools I needed.
Cons: BIOS error, speed is ok, touchpad/keys are also ok.
The first thing that happened when I booted up was a frozen purple screen. I wasn't sure if it was a software problem or a hardware problem and I didn't want to void my warranty by messing around in case it needed replacing, so I called tech support which resolved it right away. Kind of disappointing that it didn't work right out of the box.
Other Thoughts: If you run into the same problem I did where it would not boot up Ubuntu, nor the ubuntu recovery, nor anything off of a USB stick, it might be a BIOS error. ASUS tech support helped a lot. They instructed me to go into bios and reset the defaults (I don't remember the exact process) which immediately fixed the problem.READ FULL REVIEW
