Pretty fast, handles Source games at 1366x768 on medium/high with no framerate problems. Beautifully smooth.
Trackpad is big and spacious, is a joy to use in comparison to other laptops.
This thing is thinnnnn, not as thin as an ultrabook, but for a laptop with the components it has I don't think there are many that can match it. The ASUS U36SD is one of the few that can.
Stylish, great looking computer. The shell is a dark gray, it looks nothing like a Mac clone that some of the images make it out to be.
A little more expensive than it should be, at 800/950 for i3/i5 configurations. The graphics card also isn't a very good one, typically considered midrange at best. This is excused by the fact that its in a thin, stylish shell.
The gestures on the trackpad stop working sometimes. This seems to be a bug with the driver, its definitely not a hardware issue. Hopefully this issue stops happening or is resolved soon.
This is a small (14") laptop, so the keyboard is a little cramped. Most keys are perfectly fine, but the left shift key is half as big as I'm used to, and the up arrow key takes up that extra space. I find myself hitting up every once in a while. Something that will be adaptable, but it will take some time.
Lastly, the keyboard isn't backlit. Not a big deal, but hey, its worth mentioning. The backlit keyboard could have really put it over the top as a high class laptop.
All in all, I'm quickly falling in love with this laptop. I would definitely recommend it to anyone that has the money to pay a little more for style. Here is an album of photos I took as I unboxed it.
Then it all went downhill. The work computer's HDD failed. It had work data on it, so it sucked to have to send it in to them vs. having a local shop fix it. It was a approximately 40 days without a working computer, which included of multiple shipments to and from their service center in Texas. They were sick of me. It finally got fixed. On the plus side, they are quick to allow you to just send in the machine, but on the negative side their tech's must not take the time to really figure out what is wrong.
While I'm playing the waiting game on my work computer to get fixed, I start using my home computer at work. Right away I discover the ports on the right side do not work. We'd never needed them around the house, but at work I needed the HDMI and 2 USB ports. So I sent that in and they hadn't plugged the controller for those ports into the mother board. Simple enough, but still a problem to deal with. There is a screw/pin that the case attaches to on the center-bottom of the machine, they didn't attach it properly when they sent it back, so the case feels flimsy. I'm willing to live with it.
It is now about a year later and the original work computer, which is now at home, will blue screen after 10 minutes to 2 hours of normal internet use. I did a full OS recovery and the problem persisted. So I sent it in. They returned it after about a week, replacing the factory 750GB hard drive with a 500GB hard drive. Annoying, but I wasn't going to make a fuss if the computer worked. It didn't. Within 10 minutes of having the computer on (straight from the factory) it blue screened again.Read more ›
