The laptop is very light. Battery life is great. I got anywhere from 7-8 hours in quiet office mode with approximately 40% brightness doing basic things such as web browsing, Microsoft office, pdf, etc. simultaneously. The display is great and very bright hence why I lowered it to 40%. Like most other laptops out there, the speakers are not the greatest but it is good enough in my opinion. It is relatively loud in sound but the quality of the sound is not the greatest. Start up time is good to decent thought it would be faster with a SSD. The hard drive is split into two drives (C & D). The power saving physical button on the top left gives easy access to different power saving modes which is great.
Amazon has some of the incorrect spec. The sticker states it's a GeForce 610 1g and not 2g. It's a 2.8ghz 2640M i7 dual core and not 2820QM or 2620M. Laptop gets a little warm on the bottom even in quiet office mode so it's not the best to use it on your lap for an extended period of time. When pushing the laptop to high performance, the area above the keyboard where the battery is gets warm. The palm rest pad for the right hand side gets a little warm in quiet office mode and noticeably warm in high performance. Another downside is that sometimes it's easy to activate the shortcut options when using the touchpad (i.e. scrolling function).
Overall this is a very good laptop. It looks nice. I've had it for a week so far and have no problems with it. It is very light to carry around especially since I commute to college with lots of other heavy things such as lunch, books, etc. Highly recommend this for those who do not want to pay for a macbook air or ultrabook and sacrifice performance in doing so while maintaining the thin and light weight requirement. If a back-lit keyboard is one of your priorities then this is not the laptop is not for you. No laptops are made perfect. The cons that I mentioned above, however, are not really a concern for me which is why I gave this a five star rating.
In the future I'd probably upgrade this to 8gb of ram and with a SSD but even now I am very pleased with this laptop so far.
After doing extensive research, I narrowed my choices down to the HP Folio 13 and the Asus U36SG-51. While I liked the build on the HP slightly more, ultimately the Asus won me over due to its brighter display, faster graphics and much quieter keyboard and fan. While it could be improved upon (for example, use a SSD, throw in a backlit keyboard, and shave off a half pound in weight or so), I'm very happy with this laptop given its price, specs, overall build quality and performance. Highly recommend it.
The Intel i7 processor is really great. I can run Word, Powerpoint, Excel, Adobe Acrobat, Chrome, etc. all at once, and there's no problem or delays or freezing. Even Internet Explorer runs relatively fast! My father works with computers for a living and he absolutely loves this laptop. When I showed it to him, he told me he's getting one for himself. He says it can be even faster with a SSD if I want it to be. So maybe I'll look into that in the future, when I have some extra cash. 750 GB memory is also great. Don't think I'll ever have to worry about running out.
I chose this over the newer ASUS laptops because I didn't want Windows 8. My roommate actually got that one, and both laptops are very similar. Only differences that I know are that this one has a better graphics card, and my roommate's has a backlit keyboard. Most people want that, but I don't care much for it. Besides, the one on my roommate's laptop looks a little tacky anyway.
Other than that, this is a beauty. Use for anything other than gaming is fast and silent and what you would hope for. No memory lags or crashes so far after 1 month. I replaced with hard drive with a SSD, which was tricky since you have to dismantle the entire computer (since it's an ultrabook it's all made so compactly...), but the hard drive worked just fine once I reinstalled Windows. Minimal bloatware. No problems with WiFi or the ports.
If not for the heat when the Nvidia card is in use I would give this a 5. But why give a machine a dedicated card and then not build a machine that can handle exertion?
Still very protable, and althought battery does not last for the 10 hour claimed (I was already expecting that), it still holds good 6-7 hours, with reasonable use.
Highly reccomend, ideal for people who prioritize performance and functionality over sophistication/design/fancy finish.
I believe this machine can get extremelly fast when upgraded with ssd and 8 gb ram ( going to do that in a near future, when ssds get cheaper.
I ve exeprienced no problems so far. very pleased.
