Great for the money! 01/05/2013
This is an astounding product created by ASUS. The SSD boots up the OS very quickly and you're accessing programs and files in no time at all.
The laptop remains cool and quiet while websurfing and watching videos. The sound quality for such a small laptop is also great.
The backlighting on the keyboard is done well as well as the screen. Viewing angles are great because there is no gloss.
With the i3 processor this isn't a laptop for playing graphic intense games (I have yet to try League of Legends) or heavy processing but if you need a laptop that's ultra-portable and is still powerful enough to do everyday tasks without fail, then this should be your choice!
The trackpad has gestures for zooming in and zooming out, it can take you forward and backwards while you're surfing the web and I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly it scrolled up and down pages. It is very smooth and comparable to the macbook air (albeit not AS smooth, but very close).
The keys on the keyboard are a bit stiff and smaller than I expected. I'm typing this review on the laptop right now and I find myself having to fix small typos because I'm not use to the keys yet. Time will probably fix this issue.
While typing I have been hitting the trackpad occasionally and it does sort of get annoying.
For the price that I bought this (~$549) I would recommend this product to anyone looking for an ultra-portable laptop that can handle everyday tasks.
