This little ultrabook has been a pleasant surprise from the first day I purchased it. I immediately upgraded the RAM to 8gb and have enjoyed it's size and performance. It's sleek, small, light, and easy to pack around. Its keyboard looks very much like a mac clone with a bit more space between keys. Like others my hard drive made some minor clicking noises at the beginning but I've had it now for over 8 months, clicks are no longer noticable and it hasn't given me any major issues. I consistently get 5-6 hours of battery life from it when I'm not power using, and 4-5 hours when I've got multiple resources/programs running. The only drawback I've encountered is the 'green' Atheros 2.4 GHz wireless network card commonly being installed in this seasons ultrabooks and notebooks. It has poor range, poor reception and buggy drivers. Constant 'limited network' issues and a redundant reboot problem when the drivers were updated to the most current. This is a fault with the Qualcomm Atheros card as some forum searching revealed many other kinds of laptops using this card are having similar issues. Wireless would always crap out after sleep even with power management disabled. Works okay for short-range wireless (close to modem) but spotty reception 15-20 feet from modem. Purchased the ASUS UBS-N53 wireless dongle and paired it with the ASUS N56U router and speed and reception are now impressive. Overall a great little laptop, with a better on-board wireless I would have given it 5 stars. (Also screws on back case needed to be tightened occasionally as one simply fell out one day. Re-tightened again after adding ram and all good.)
