Dave, Pembrokeshire Business user

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
It's really light. A good screen size for my work. (A compromise between 10hr battery of a netbook and screen of a full size laptop)
Thank gawd I got one of the last Windows7 machines. Been working with 8 on non touch screen machines!!! Windows 8? DON'T DO IT!!!

Plenty stable enough for my work - Great price - Nice keyboard - So far has coped with brick dust, light rain, sub zero temperatures, Ethernet port being used over 10 times a day, generally being knocked about. Overall very happy with it...
Bad points:
If you need the Ethernet port, get ready for a fight if you want your cable back! The port has a spring loaded cover so it matches the profile of the case. Seriously, It's a two handed operation with the laptop on its side to get the cable out! I'm a network field engineer so plug onto this several times a day. I'm seriously going to get some araldite to stick it in the open position so it's like a normal port!!!

The mouse pad does some clever swiping and grabbing stuff. Drives me crazy. Haven't figured out how to turn it off yet! Wish it had separate mouse pad buttons.

Takes a little while to obtain an IP address compared to my other machines but we're talking seconds... (I'm being picky now!)

Rant over, there aren't really any other band points on this machine.

Manufacturer's Description

Exclusive ASUS engineering has created a unique internal layout that keeps heat away from palm rests and from users. Always below body temperature, palm rests feel cool to the touch, and are therefore more comfortable to use even during long sessions.

Only ASUS notebooks offer you true 2-second instant on resume from sleep or hibernate, cutting out long reboot times and putting you back to work or enjoyment right where you left off. Thanks to ASUS Super Hybrid Engine II technology, you also get up to 14 days of standby, with auto data backup should battery charge drop to 5% or less.

Exclusive ASUS sound enhancement turns the new X Series into highly capable multimedia notebooks, with the best sound in their class: more power, wider range, and improved clarity combine to offer a more satisfying multimedia experience.
