I will definitely buy my next ultrabook from Amazon but it will not be an asus product.
1. I had to send the first one back within 2 weeks because the screen went black. The problem is the screen is wobbly/loose where it attaches to the keyboard. The second one came with the same issue, so I have been babying it so it won't die on me, too. It kind of makes the whole portability thing moot if it wobbles all over kingdom come when moving it from one spot to another.
2. The keyboard takes tremendous effort to register a keystroke. It happens all over the keyboard, but is the worst with the right hand, particularly the first two fingers. This cuts into productivity because it requires one correction after another, is a worse PAIN when typing passwords, and this gets old really REALLY fast.
3. Touchpad -- yeah. Good thing I prefer a mouse. Updating the driver didn't help, though some have had luck with it.
4. Wifi, you hope. It drops off my home network often, and I have to reset the modem before the Zenbook will recognize it again. None of the other laptops in the house have this issue except... oh, wait... another Asus laptop flaked out this same way. Asus? Knock knock! Are you home? People don't like this, and updating the driver more than once DID NOT HELP.
As I write this, Zenbook Numero Dos has been Fedexed back for repairs. This is a total pain in the patoot, since all data has to be transferred, programs uninstalled, blah blah blah. Seriously, nobody has this much time to spend on wonky computer issues. I told Asus not to send it back to me if they couldn't eliminate all these problems. I'll keep you posted.
I should have paid the extra $400 for a MacBook Air (or gone with another Windows laptop). There are two major issues that make this computer a straight up pain.
1. The touchpad is really weird and sensitive. It often jumps over the page; I can't count the number of times I tried to cut and paste and ended up cutting the wrong thing.
2. The wireless connection is awful. It disconnects really frequently (in the past hour, it has disconnected me nine times, while no one else in my vicinity has had that problem) and it runs slowly. I have since searched for that issue and it seems like it is widespread - people blame it either on the quality of the wireless card or the solid aluminum body. For me, a good internet connection is crucial to basic functionality, so this does not deliver.
Bottom Line: If I could go back in time, I would not buy this laptop.
