This review is from: Asus Zenbook UX31 13.3" Ultrabook with Intel Corei5-2467M 1.60Ghz, 4GB DDR3 Memory, 128GB SSD, Bluetooth 4.0, Bang & Olufsen Premium Sound, Mini HDMI Out, Windows 7 Home Premium 64 Bit
Pros: 1600x900 resolution
Cons: Need to get right drivers
Cold be hardware problem
Other Thoughts: The first one I got, I got several blue screen of death just doing web browsing and other trivial tasks. Thanks to Newegg, the unit was exchanged quickly.
The second one does not have hardware problem but the drivers for touchpad, usb3, and wireless are poor. Got the first two drivers from Asus web site and the wireless one through the manufacture web site.
After all these trouble, I end up with a very nice ultraportable laptop with 1600x900 screen.
Pros: The laptop has a second hard drive bay with SATA III connector. However, to install a SSD, I had to remove the SSD from the enclosure and remove plastic grid from the drive cover.
With two drives, it is easy to install Windows 7 and 8 independently just by controlling boot sequence.
Cons: Why make it difficult to install a second drive.
Other Thoughts: I am giving it 5 stars to offset the arbitraty 1 star from the previous reviewer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Low cost
Cons: Does not have the required characteristics to be used for ReadyBoost on my HP G62 (Win7 x64) laptop. My old 8GB Patriot Class 6 card worked just fine for that purpose.
Other Thoughts: I also tried to format the SDHC card as NTFS with the same failure. Well, I just have to use it for something else.READ FULL REVIEW
