Touchpad - Update the driver (downloading it from the Asus website). Before doing anything, do updates on the computer first. Some may say that this is absurd and that it should work out of the box. But, I think it's correct to say that you need to update the driver! Same goes for keeping your virus definitions updated for your anti-virus program! After the update, almost flawless trackpad. It's just as good as any Windows trackpad. Obviously not as good as a Macbook with it comes to smoothness (but Mac trackpad doesn't work well in Windows either since it doesn't have the drivers).
Sound - Very very good sound for the form factor. For something so thin, I don't think you can find anything that matches the quality of these speakers!
Screen - I personally did not have any viewing angle problems. The screen is very bright and high resolution, but I did have a dead pixel on the top left edge of the screen. This can be verify by the video I made for it! Also, there's a small quirk... The screen hinge is a little loose and when typing on your lap at a wider angle, you might experience the screen to fall backward. I also made a video of this.
Now, the worst of all! Keyboard!Read more ›
I will definitely buy my next ultrabook from Amazon but it will not be an asus product.
The performance is great. Loads very fast, works very fast. Never seen a laptop work so good and so fast. Did not have problems with the track pad, it worked out of the box.
Unfortunately I had to return it for 3 reasons(even though I didn't want to do it):
1. And the main reason was due to an error while updating the BIOS from 207 to 209. As an advice to others: DO NOT UPDATE THE BIOS firmware directly from the SSD(specifically from NTFS formatted device). Copy the firmware to a FAT memory stick and then update it. Or use Win Flash.
2. I had a lot of noise from the speakers. Seemed like the speakers were not attached properly to the device.
3. I got electric shocks every time I touched the laptop while it was plugged in. It was not a big shock, but very unpleasant.
I will have a Zenbook for sure, but maybe the second or third generation, when asus refines the product.
Other than these problems, the laptop is a blast. It was a pleasure working on and getting work done.
