"Simply the coolest looking laptop available today."4.5 starson by Trey444
Pros: Beautiful finish, solid well built feel. High resolution screen.
Cons: Power adapter pin seems undersized. Asus website for support should be better.
Summary: When you hold this in your hand, you realize the MacAir now looks frumpy by comparison. It's absolutely beautiful, and feels very well constructed. The trackpad response was jumpy initially, but works well after a BIOS update. Asus should be congratulated on getting out updates so quickly on a new model, but their website is quirky.
Biggest downside is a keyboard which is OK, but not sterling. Overall, though, this is a really nice, fast laptop with a brilliant screen, and it's nice not to have to go to the Apple side to get decent hardware. I was getting really tired of Macbooks and it's good news to have an alternative that actually bests them in most every way.
