Pros: Cheap, slim, fast, and the touchscreen just make me love windows 8.1. I got this during the Black Friday door buster event and the price is just under 500. It is half the price of MacBook Air and MacBook Pro, but it run like a champ. I find it to be sluggish at first but after changing the power setting to high it is very snappy now. I run autodesk revit and autocad 3d on it without upgrade ram, and it still run pretty smooth. As for updating to windows 8.1, it's like a walk in the park. The laptop itself feel really light and the aluminum feel is just like MacBook. Good job asus
Cons: Battery only last about 4.5 hours. Ram is a little limited but upgradable to 8gb. The space bar need a harder press than what I'm used to on my Hp envy. The back cover attract fingerprint like nothing you'll ever see before.
Overall Review: I definitely recommend this. I really enjoy it. I've build my own desktop just about a year ago with i7 2600k and this little guys run pretty smooth compare to my desktop. It might not have the computing power as my gaming desktop but it certainly has the power to do the every day computing with ease. I mean, it run autodesk revit and and autocad 3d without any noticeable lag with only 4gb ram. This little guys will blow the MacBook Air away any day.
