Great laptop at a great price!,
This review is from: ASUS S400CA-DH51 14-Inch TouchScreen Laptop (Personal Computers)
I am going to keep this short and sweet because most others have covered it, but I am recently converted from a Macbook, so that is my point of reference!
This laptop doesn't look one bit like a cheap laptop. It has a solid feel and the materials used are also very good looking. The touchscreen works great, and I have used an iPad numerous times and this is seems just as sensitive/responsive. One big problem I keep having is the touch-pad allows you to zoom in or out on webpages with two fingers, but it is a very similar movement to scrolling through a page. It has become very frustrating when I am trying to scroll down or up a page and it just re-sizes and I have to somehow get it back to the original zoom (you would think that because accidentally re sizing it happens easily, getting it to back would be equally simple--but I haven't found that to be the case.) Also, I have found it difficult to always click the correct side of the mouse-pad (right vs left click) but I suspect that is due to having a Macbook with no right click key for years. Outside of the track pad I have had no real issues. The first time I turned the computer on after it was sleeping the internet was VERY slow, however by disconnecting and reconnecting to the network it has since run flawlessly.
Windows 8 is the only real issue I have had, but that is an OS problem and not the physical laptop. However, I think that with time I will grow to be proficient and enjoy it, but as of now it is a big pain in the behind!
Overall as a Apple Macbook Convert I have found this to be aesthetically pleasing, good quality, and a solid laptop that has a great touchscreen at a great value and I would recommend it!

You can turn off pinch to zoom by clicking on Asus Smart Gesture (taskbar) and uncheck zoom.

Thanks for your help, but I dont believe its possible in Windows 8! I have gone through the control panel and the mouse settings and there is no option for the pinch to zoom feature. I have also browsed the internet and have yet to find a solution!
