"As always, Asus delivered!"4.5 starson by sp90378
Pros: Light, very thin, SSD, i7 CPU, 4gn DDR3, Bluetooth,
Cons: The lid is slightly hard to open up because of the small lip. Also, would of been nice for the keys to be backlight, but im not going to complain about that :)
Summary: Firstly, I dont know what the other reviewer is talking about, but I have always had nothing but goodness with Asus support, when it comes to warranty. Also, they allow you to send it to third parties if you choose, which can yield in faster repairs. Once I even had a third party mail me a replacement heatsink and fan for my laptop, so I could replace it myself, and they did send it and I sent the old one back.
Overall their warranty is good, and they are flexible encase you would rather have an ASUS certified shop repair it, to where you can talk with the tech.
Ok so as far as this laptop goes, its an amazing thing! I love how thin and light it is, but yet how extremely fast it is, especially the 2 second boot from sleep time. We eneded up with the UX31E-DH72 model, which is the 13" i7 model because it has better battery life, and honestly, because its so light and thin, going from their 11" to 13" model is not a big deal at all, and I am glad we did. I was also pleased that it had a nice case for it, and an ethernet adapter as well as a vga adapter.
The wifi on my unit has very good range and speed, having excellent signal, where as 3 different laptops at the same range only show poor to good signal.
The 256gb SSD is amazing as well. Once I loaded files to it from my USB 3.0 thumb drive (moved 1gb of files in about 10 seconds), they installed extremely fast. What would take my ASUS G73JH 1 minute to install, this ultra book took only 10-20 seconds to do.
I have had no issues with the keyboard as others have complained about, and I also love the touchpad. The touchpad has giving me no issues before or after I did drivers updates, which included a touchpad update.
Overall, this product is amazing, and I will continue to buy more ASUS laptops in the future (this is my 3rd asus laptop in 6 years, and I sold one of them to make room for my G73JH).
