      Comments about Asus ZENBOOK UX31 Series Silver Ultrabook Computer:

      This Zenbook is not for everybody.
      But, if you need a silent ultrabook (no static and/or electric noises through the DAC, no rotating hard disk, absolutely silent when the fan is off adn decent when the fan is not, which fortunately does not happen very often) and you can neglect the not-very-easy keyboard, there is no better machine in the market.
      I use it for critical music listening with my portable DAC and headphones and for that use it is the best by far.
      Also, it comes with an excellent set of accessories, warranties and 24/7 support from ASUS.
      So, not for everybody but perfect for people who know what they need.

      Comments about Asus ZENBOOK UX31 Series Silver Ultrabook Computer:

      The laptop is beautifully made with quality material. Start up time is extremely fast with the SSD. Comes clean out of the box with very few (if any) bloatware. I use it for school and it does its job without a hitch. The only issues I have with this ultrabook is the keyboard sensitvity. Like others have said, it doesn't respond well to taps on the corner of the keys. This can easily be resolved with continued use and eventually forming a habit of pressing the keys harder. Also the trackpad can seem a bit too sensitive or perform touch commands I wasn't trying to do (even with the update). But even with these two issues, Im still happy with the purchase. Battery life is short, just like other ultrabooks. The charger for this is very portable (no brick) like the laptop. Not bulky or heavy at all like all the other one's I've seen. I would definitely recommend this to someone, just as long as they're ok with and aware of the mentioned drawbacks.

          Comments about Asus ZENBOOK UX31 Series Silver Ultrabook Computer:

          I just got this beautiful stunning laptop 2 days ago. I was really happy about the thinness of the device. First thing I noticed was the trackpad was a little iffy, but good thing I have a wireless mouse.
          After 6 hours of usage, the laptop crashed and wouldn't boot up. Had to Call Asus Tech Support, couldnt solve the issue right away and had to ship it back. Hopefully they can resolve all issues on this laptop. I would love to use this laptop everyday for work and at school but if I keep on getting issues then im going to have to go with the MB Air, and this is coming from a beloved window user.

          Comments about Asus ZENBOOK UX31 Series Silver Ultrabook Computer:

          I was anxiously awaiting the release of this product, and desperately searched for anyone who could sell it to me. ABT Electronics had one in stock, so I paid a rather high fee to get it delivered to me the next day. I was extremely impressed with the product for the first few days I owned it. On day five, the laptop wouldn't boot into Windows. I did a factory restore, and it still wouldn't work.

          Asus tech support was terrible. They couldn't offer me any troubleshooting suggestions and instead just told me to send it back. The tech support manual says to ships it back in the original packaging, but the RMA process from Asus says to not send anything in that you want to get back. Their tech support was incredibly unhelpful to me, and it was frustrating to have to bubble wrap this beautiful laptop and ship it back "naked" in a box. I'm worried about surface damage to it, but Asus doesn't send you anything to ship it back in.

          I'm currently waiting to get the product back from Asus, and while I'm reasonably sure the laptop itself is what I'm looking for from a hardware perspective, the atrocious tech support from Asus makes me regret buying it in the first place.

            This is a great laptop, I only use it for my personal use as in listening music, watching movies, browsing internet. Only had it for 3 weeks, but so far in love with this machine. Gotta love its looks and lightness, battery holds in average 5-6 hours. The only thing I find a bit irresponsive is scrolling down the page using two fingers on the mouse pad, maybe I'm just not used to it, but sometimes it could be a bit stubborn or if your fingers are not dead steady it will start zooming in and out when you don't want it. Afterall I'm very satisfied with the Zenbook and would recomend it to everyone.
