I've had this notebook for 5 months now and I don't regret the purchase. Good battery life, nice keyboard and a good amount of RAM makes it a great deal. I've trusted asus for many years going back where it only made PC's motherboards.

As a previous reviewer said, speakers are OK for this kind of computer. Don't expect hugh quality audio! but I guess it's something common in almost all laptops.
USB 3.0 it's a plus, along with an HDMI port.

double check the price though, amazon has this unit a bit overpriced.

I purchased this laptop at BestBuy about 4 months ago. I was replacing a 5 year old Sony Vaio that had it's wireless switch crap out. I still use the Vaio in a docking station hard wired to the network and it works great. The ASUS was $599.00 so it was cheaper than Amazon has it but I would have paid higher for it. The battery life alone sets it apart from any laptop I have ever owned. I get 8 hours plus when unplugged and that is running videos, surfing, picture uploading and wireless on. It took me awhile to get used to the keyboard set up, the keys actually pop up individually from the laptop but since I have been using it, it is actually really easy to use. Huge HD and it came with 6 GIGs of Ram, I was thinking of taking it to 8 GIGs to max it out but I really don't think it needs the extra two. Screen is very clear and it all works great. I would recommend this laptop to anyone who was looking. The price point and quality are both excellent.

Update: 2/1/2013 - Just sent this laptop off to Asus to have it repaired. I believe that the hard drive failed, it would not let me restore or factory reset. Went into a death loop spiral with chkdsk in DOS mode. So frustrating considering it never left my ottoman, ever. 8 months, not a good sign...

Update: 3/4/2013 - Received the laptop back about 2 weeks ago. Mother board was bad and HD had a bad section, or so they said. Laptop has been running fine since I got it back, except that I have experienced the very long black screen start a couple times again. This was the reason I was trying to restore it before when it finally died on me. I am just backing everything up daily and hopefully it will last. I really like the computer and it does everything I need it to do. I will keep my fingers crossed.

You've read the specs so you know what's in the machine and it's got a lot to offer. For me the outstanding feature is the long battery life. I needed a decent machine with a long life and this one has it. I would give it a better rating except for the speakers. They are merely okay, nothing spectacular, just okay. It would have been nice to have a backlit keyboard too, but that would shorten the battery life. The graphics, intel 3000, are built into the cpu and does what I want but, it isn't a heavy gaming gpu. I've had mine for about a month now and I would certainly buy it again; sorry I didn't get it here as I found it cheaper elsewhere. So, if you need a longer battery life, mine gets around 8 hours of actual use, definitely take a serious look at the Asus U series.

P.S. I've read where some people are having trouble with the trac pad. I haven't had that problem, but it is something to look into before you buy. Knowing what I know I would still buy this one again.

This computer is really fast and the keyboard feels nice. This was my first laptop so I was surprised by a few things. The speakers on this one are mousy quiet. ASUS does that on this model to save battery power. The keyboard is not backlit either for the same reason. So far that has not been a problem. I had to change the setting for TouchPad Sensativity. I set if from very slight touch to maximum touch (which I recommend) because the touchpad was clicking on links all day long without me even trying. Ahhh, just the slightest touch activated that thing which was no touch at all. So I changed that, and I love this computer.

In 2012 I researched all over and found this laptop had the most bang for your buck, but after owning it for a year and a half I regretted my decision. First off lets list the pros and cons that I found with this product.

Pros:
* Cosmetically appealing laptop with aluminum top (helps prevents scratches) with a Large Screen
& a nice metallic finish around the key board and rubber base sole around the touch pad helps to prevent wear, and feels
comfortable laying your palms on.
* Great bang for your buck with i5 processor, 750gb of memory and 6GB of ram!
* Decent webcam.
* Nice Turbo Boost feature that can increase your speed to 3GHz. ( Great addition for anyone gaming )

Cons:
* Sound volume is really low at max volume, Asus did address this problem with a update that added a Volume Boost but it's
still relatively low, I would suggest buying speakers or headphones.
* The Touch Pad is horrible it is unresponsive at times and the buttons are poor quality.
* Cheap components : After a year my wireless card failed and was replaced while still in warranty. Around a year and a half
the wireless card failed again and soon was followed with a failing motherboard while out of warranty.

I researched the error message and found this motherboard error message was frequent among other user. I contacted Asus and as expected was not serviced because I was out of warranty. The problem I have with Asus is Obviously the U56E model is having problems even the extent of a "defective product" but fail to take responsibility and was quoted by Asus customer service that "failing mother boards are common and come with wear and tear." I guess I expected more customer service after purchasing $700.00 computer. I have not purchased another Asus and would not recommend one from my experience.
