Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
The box
Very sleek and does justice to the slim design of the laptop itself. When opening you just need to plug in the battery, the electricity connection, and you are done. Easy. Not too much packaging to dispose of later on. I give it 5 stars.

The laptop
Superb design when closed, and stunning when open. Very fine keyboard, easy to type, and most importantly, it also has a numeric pad on the right, like a 'real' keyboard. It is lightweight, and perfect to carry around if you plan to take it when traveling. The stickers can be detached easily, apart from the intel one, but that's usual. Its aluminium finish gives it a very cool feel. I give it 5 stars

Plug and play
I will try here to separate the Asus features (object of this review) from the Microsoft environment (not that easy!)...
When starting the pc, a few screens prompt you to set it up easily, and within minutes you can play. The touchpad is responsive and allows for shortcuts. Linking it on the home network is a breeze, and once connected it is SUPER fast. I tried a few HD videos and both image and sound are crystal clear and perfect. Waking it up takes a mere few seconds, much better than any other windows laptops i've seen. Really impressed, I give it 5 stars

The operating system
The laptop comes equipped with Windows 8... If you like Windows then you will be in heaven as this OS is very visual and seems intuitive. I am a Mac person at heart so will be biased on this one, hence I will note give a rating on this. My partner finds it a great improvement on the previous one though...

Overall
On its own this is a very fine laptop, quick, easy to use and stylish. If you want a high performance sleek machine running windows, then do not hesitate and get this one!
