This was purchased as a lightweight PC to be used on the move. Purchased because it would only be used for word-processing (no heavy graphics) and the touted 'up to 8 hours' battery life, thanks to the 'super hybrid engine' (SHE).
It is a nice compact device. Finish and quality are decent for the price, touch screen works fine.
Big however: the battery life never betters 3 hours.
I note that since I purchased this based on the publicity claims for battery life, and following some published reviews by the tech press that criticise the battery life, any claims or mention of battery life have been dropped by the Asus website....
In all fairness, the battery life is average for PC's of similar specifications. But a shame that Asus are (or were) so misleading.
