My Review ( P.O.V ) : I've seen some people sneer snobbishly at low priced goods, and have even seen one personally bash Asus products left, right and center. But let me say it here, loud and clear - I've been a proud Asus user since last couple of years and my laptop ( bought couple of years back ) is still working great. So, why buy another laptop ~ must be your next question. Well, I had many flipkart gift-vouchers lying around, so after buying tones of useless things, I decided to buy something useful for a change. And for a regular computer user, that I am, nothing is more useful than an extra laptop now, is it? I fell in love with it instantly and chose the 'gold' colour, intentionally. I already had a black one, so why not be flashy this time, eh? Like my other Asus lappy that had intel Atom in it, this one has one too ( with 4 cores ). And one can be assured of quality of the product, if there's Intel inside. It comes with a 1 year warranty and is pre-loaded with lots of stuff like Win.8, Microsoft Office365 1 year subscription, with the whole package of Full Versions of Microsoft Word, Excel, Outlook, Powerpoint, Access, Publisher and OneNote, Along with 1 TB of Microsoft OneDrive ( needs to be Activated within 6 Month of Purchase ).
I've already worked on it few times and I'm so impressed. Its sleek, slim and light weight, I can carry it everywhere. One may require to buy external storage ( micro sd card ) though. It is soundless; so no noise to distract you as you work and doesn't heat up much as well, a plus point. It charges quite fast ( 3 hrs ) and gives almost 9-10 hrs battery back up. A huge plus point. Its great for light uses like - browsing, watching movies, doing work on Word/Excel etc or simple games. But very heavy users may not find it that impressive. However, having said that, for its price its a great stylish machine no doubt. Will update further as I use it more. Meanwhile, check out its other awesome colours, who knows I may buy another as and when I get more vouchers :P
Positives : For its price its an awesome product. Highly recommended.
Negatives : None so far, though wish it had greater memory/storage capacity.
Who will enjoy this? - Everyone, especially those on the move.
