ASUS S56CA-WH31 Ultrabook Intel Core i3 3217U (1.80 GHz) 500 GB HDD 24 GB SSD Intel HD Graphics 4000 Shared memory 15.6
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: -Light
-15.6" screen (while still being light)
-Sound is not bad for a laptop/ultrabook
-Boots quickly

Cons: -Windows 8 is just not intuitive at all to the long time Windows user. Much prefer 7.
-4gb memory. You will want to upgrade to 8gb immediately. As others have stated, it will run at 48-55% with nothing but your browser open. With the price of memory these days this is really not a big deal. The one memory slot is a bit of PITA to get to...

Other Thoughts: Honestly, this has more than lived up to my expectations for a ultrabook/laptop of its size/price ($499 at the time). It has worked without a hick-up since I got it. Once upgraded to 8gb of memory it is more than adequate...but not great. I would give it 3.5 eggs, but I felt generous and rounded up.

  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: None

Cons: Came as a bare card, no plastic cover or anything. First boot with drivers it gets the blue screen. No OC or anything. Utter Junk. Do not buy.
