The Good side
1. Good CPU speed, I'm a student using the laptop mainly for homework/study/web/movies/youtube. It's not a lighting speed one but I'm totally happy with it's performance --- no lag! I think the 4GB ram definitely help.
2. Super thin and sleek outlook and excellent built quality. Asus built the laptop with brushed aluminum on the top and high-end plastic on the bottom, which make it feels like you are holding a $1xxx latop :D,
3. Surprise how light the latop is, I can spin it with my finger! no kidding~ Also the power adapter is the smallest I've ever seen, the adapter is about the length of a lighter and 3 times of it's size and super light as well.
4. Crispy screen playing 1080p video smoothly, No problem using HDMI output on 56inches TV.
5. I think a lot of people would concern about the battery life, well, I can honestly tell you it's really not that bad, for normal web browsing it can last 4.5hrs using the battery saving mode, and don't be scared by hearing battery saving equal to low performance, in fact I just feel the same as the high performance mode except using dimmer screen brightness. The battery is in fact a high end POLYMER battery instead of standard one on other laptops, it's more reliable and has longer life.
6. Asus Express Gate installed. EG let you get on internet do most stuff without booting the windows, it's Linux based os customized for Asus laptop. As advertised get connected online and start browsing the web in 8 Sec (tested, takes 6sec! ^^)
6. Elegant package make you feeling like unboxing a macbook air ^^
The Bad side
1. Weak microphone, I use the video chat on Skype and live messenger a lot, the microphone just doesn't useful as the one who you chat with couldn't hear any but noise from you. Disappointed. Problem Solved by bought a usb audio interface for $9.99, it work perfectly now.
2. It would be a little tough to get used to the touch pad, but in few days, you'll be OK and enjoy, still cant compare to Mac's touch pad.
Overall, it's a great value to purchase this notebook, I'm happy using it everyday in school and home. everything just great. Highly recommended for student or people who love to use their laptop the way I do, Web browsing/homework/movies/Youtube/video chat/
* SU7300 core 2 duo CPU 1.3GHz
* 4GB ram
* 320 GB HDD
* 1.3 MP Webcam (instead 0.3MP in description)
* 3 cell Polymer Lithium ion
* NO bluetooth
Battery life is so-so, but it's a three cell battery so I guess I can't expect much, it's not horrible, but don't stray too far from an outlet. Right now, not doing anything on the laptop and on some serious battery saving options, I have a little over 5 hours of juice. If you're surfing the web, or doing anything else you can expect about 4 to 4.5 hours on a full charge.
The keyboard is great! I love typing on it, there's no flex and it feels like quality. I have medium sized hands and it's perfect for me.
It should be noted that the top of the laptop is definitely brushed aluminum and the bottom is definitely plastic. I had read some reviews (maybe they had pre-production models?) where they said the top and bottom were metal. This is not the case. The laptop weighs in at just over 3 pounds 5 ounces in case anyone was wondering.
The laptop looks great and I've already gotten a few compliments on it. It boots up pretty quickly and programs load pretty fast. It doesn't come loaded with a bunch of crap software either. I thought I was going to have to format and start clean, but it only came with some software from asus which is convenient for the laptop and I don't feel the need to delete. It came with a free trail of some sort of virus detector (not Mcaffee, thank god) which was easy enough to remove.
Finger prints will be visible on the lid if you're eating french fries and have really greasy fingers. Otherwise the lid tends to stay pretty clean!
That's all I can think of to write at the moment. I might come back in a month with an update. I might also send this back to Asus to fix the mouse pad buttons because it's going to drive my OCD crazy. Except for the annoying lack of quality in the mouse pad buttons, I'm very happy with the laptop over-all and would recommend it to other people.
There is some weird circle on the LCD screen that is annoying. The bottom half of the product is plastic which makes it feel cheap. The trackpad is terrible to the point that I connect a mouse whenever possible and the right side of the keyboard is clanky and cheap feeling.
The good: This is a 3lb laptop with 4GB of RAM, 320GM hard drive, core 2 duo (albeit with crappy performing ULV processors) but overall there is a decent amount under the hood for how small thislaptop is. Definitely not a netbook at the price and the specs.
