Pros: It has a great feel in hand. Beautifully made. The keyboard is gentle and responsive. Very comfortable for just having in your lap. The speakers are really impressive. Never would have expected such full sound from such a tiny machine.
Cons: *Only two ports (beside the mic/headphones jack), they are both USB-C, and one is meant for charging.
*The track pad is not great. Seems to have trouble distinguishing button click from a multi-touch gesture, which makes navigating scroll bars tricky. It also seems to be a bit finicky - if your finger is too dry, or a bit sweaty, it starts having a but of trouble following your movements. Not a major problem, just an occasional minor annoyance.
Overall Review: It is really meant to be an on-the-go machine. Moderate performance specs, long battery life, and minimal attention for peripherals. If you just need something to toss in a bag, this is great. If you expect more functionality, you might feel a bit limited.
Thoughts after owning it for a few months:
*The sole audio jack accepts either a mic or headphones. It does not seem to work with a combination device, which is a puzzling choice considering there's just one port.
*Even though it charges through a USB port, it still accepts only the manufacturer power supply. It would have been amazing if you could use any USB charger. A great opportunity missed.
*Having just one USB-C port generally available peripherals is not a big deal. For home, I got a USB-C / USB-A hub. When away, I don't really use peripherals anyway.
*It did have a failure - it wouldn't charge anymore. Getting warranty support was a bit cumbersome, and I had to ship the unit to them. They did turn it around fairly quickly, though.
Pros: Small simple easy
Cons: Started making weird noise like 2 weeks after purchase and cant figure out how to fix it
Pros: ASUS nailed this laptop, my end users love them! Very small and light, battery lasts ok, and the screen is bigger then competing models.....they have a dock that is nice, too
Cons: Can be finicky connecting to our dell monitors coming out of sleep mode - have to unplug and replug the one wire to the dock about half the time
Overall Review: we have come back and bought more of these, really like this laptop...
Pros: Purchased this for my daughter heading to college, it checked all of her and my boxes:
Looks great, light and compact, lovely feel and very fast.
Cons: The laptop is unreliable. The laptop failed 3 times with the same issue. Would not charge (replaced power cord, found to be an issue with the charging port on the actual Laptop.) Had to be returned under warranty, 3 times. This takes a week to get there, 10 - 12 days being repaired, another week being returned. So essentially every time there has been an issue a month goes by. This is a catastrophe for a college student, their books are on the laptop, their attendance software for clicker software etc too. I have requested a replacement under warranty, but this is not the Asus way and is unlikely to happen. I am so disappointed this is the 5th Asus that I have purchased and the first to have such problems.
Overall Review: Because of the issues that we have had, I would not recommend this laptop.
Pros: super light, bought two for salesreps so far
Cons: I didn't get the dongle with extra ports......
Pros: Start in less than 10 sec
Sound is really hot
screen is wonderful !
Really small to move around with it but not to work. It just the good size
Really really thin !
Cons: It's in plastic not in metal
Overall Review: I have had more than 30 computer in my life, all kind of brand (HP, Acer, Apple, Dell, Samsung, Toshiba, etc...). This is my first ASUS, and believe me, this computer is the best ever !
Pros: Ultra-thin and light. Very clear picture quality.
Cons: Touch pad does not always respond. There are no usb ports on the computer itself, you have to plug in an external port, which has only one usb port and then it did not always allow you to disconnect, forcing me to remove the flash drive without disconnecting. Having to have external equipment is a pain. I also had difficulty connecting to some internet sites, like YouTube and Microsoft. There is not a camera on the computer.
Overall Review: I don't know if we got a lemon, it certainly seems so given the fact that other people gave wonderful reviews.
Overall Review: very very good！
