Product Description

Product Description

Designed for everyday multitasking and entertainment for smart and practical users, the Asus X series redefine your expectations of all-rounder notebooks. With a spun-circle finish and patterned palm rests, the X series adds a touch of sophistication and elegance to everyday computing. The slim profile is 5% thinner than the previous X series notebook, and still houses a large touchpad with intuitive multi-point Smart Gesture input, multiple USB 3.0 ports for fast data transfer and IceCool technology to keep your palm rests cool.

Value-packed with all the essentials, the X series reinvents your daily computing experience. Whether you are using it for work or for fun, this is an ideal machine for both productive computing and entertainment. It features Instant on - that resumes your computer from sleep mode in 2 seconds - and USB 3.0 for 10x faster data transfer speed.

On most notebooks, all sound frequencies originate from small onboard speakers, and the resulting audio comes from a single source and lacks distinctiveness. Like other notebooks in the Asus range, the X series comes equipped with SonicMaster technology and Asus AudioWizard to bring you high fidelity audio. Experience omnidirectional sound and hear each individual instrument's nuances with the X series.

First things first, it comes with Windows 8 that can be upgraded to Windows 8.1; you just have to be patient.
Boot it up, connect to the internet and do an update. On my machine it had 156 updates the first time around, 27 the second time around and 8 the third time. You have to install all of the updates BEFORE you can upgrade to Windows 8.1 for free. THIS ALL TAKES TIME, do be patient.
It comes with a whole load of preinstalled bloatware; it is up to you if you want to keep it but it does slow the computer down especially the MacAfee 30 day antivirus, I removed it but this has to be your choice, there are many free antivirus programs that can be downloaded.
If you prefer the old Desktop mode, as I do, Windows 8.1 allows you to boot straight into it. Once again the internet does tell you how to do this.

The screen does not fold all the way back, it cannot be used in tablet form but as I mainly use it in the Desktop mode and very rarely use the touch screen and the associated Apps this is not a problem for me. However, if any of you are looking for a touch screen computer and don't mid reaching over the keyboard this does it at a reasonable price.
For an Intel i7 with 8GB RAM it is a slow machine, I would have expected something faster but this might be down to the Hard Drive as opposed to the processor.
It connects easily to my home network (well Windows 8.1 would wouldn't it) and all-in-all it is an adequate laptop. The battery lasts just short of 3 hours but then with such a large laptop who would want to balance it on their lap for longer, if not on your lap then when on a desk you can plug in the mains.

I have been using this machine for a couple of weeks now and so far I'm very happy with it indeed, although there has been a few fairly tricky issues.After unboxing and firing up the machine I had real problems getting connected to my home network via Wi-Fi. It just wouldn't connect. Tried all the usual things. Disconnected all other devices, reset router etc. but just couldn't get on wireless. After a lot of googling and tinkering I managed to diagnose the issue.
It turned out that the default power settings on the wireless adapter were set to disable it when the computer is in power save mode. After changing the power settings (right-click on the battery icon on taskbar, go into power settings, get into advanced power settings,find wireless adaptor,set to maximum performance) it connected okay, but was still dodgy and kept dropping out.
I connected it up to my router via ethernet cable and downloaded a bunch of Windows Updates and after a day or so Asus sent an update out via the built in Asus Update software which sends updates to the machine over the web. It was an updated Wireless driver, so I installed that and it seemed to fix the problem for good. Hopefully.
After the initial problems, I found the laptop to be really nice to use. It's a pretty decent solid build that feels fairly sturdy,the textured finish on the chassis is nice (although a bit hard to buff the fingerprints off) . Display is nice, clear, sharp, bright and the touchscreen works perfectly. Good marks for sound quality as well, a nice full sound and goes really loud! Very good for music and video. The smart gesture touchpad is a little hard to get used to but once you get the hang of it, it's very useful.
I'd advise getting the Windows 8.1 update as soon as possible to improve the interface.

Purchased the model with the i7 processor thinking it would be relatively fast an efficient.

This awful laptop is anything but. Glacially slow and stuttery, and prone to freezing, even using everyday software like iTunes and Football Manager 2015 (on pretty modest graphics settings necessitated by the pitiful capabilities of the computer). The screen is prone to randomly reducing in brightness before correcting itself again when it feels like it, and unless you're sat in at least semi-darkness, the caps lock light etc. are effectively useless.

An astonishing poor product given its decent spec on the face of it, and absolutely infuriating to use.

Avoid at all costs.

Good points; Very quick and responsive, nice touch screen,feels very well made.
Not so good points ; As mentioned by others battery life under normal use is about four hours. touch pad takes a lot of getting used to as it is so sensitive. The internal microphone is a waste of time loads of background noise, this is the second of these laptops I have had and they are both the same, I bought a usb microphone of Amazon £3 this works like a dream. There is only one jack socket for audio in and out, it is suggested you buy an adaptor which will cost you about £17.
