Awesome machine!
26 Jan 2015 By Sanal Kumar On flipkart.com

This being my second computer, the main expectations were browsing the web & editing documents and it doesn't get any better than this. I have multiple browser tabs open along with word & excel documents, and I do not notice any lag whatsoever!nIt has 20.8GB user space on the flash drive, and I added a 64GB MicroSD Class-10 card to top it up. nThere are also some bundled cloud offers: Microsoft OneDrive with 1TB storage for a year (along with Office 365), and Asus Webstorage with 500GB for 2 years. Since OneDrive is also available on mobiles & Mac, I am now using it extensively to share data across platforms.nThe 1-year bundled subscription to Office 365 is neat. The machine is also very lightweight. The battery also seems to last forever (after a 3-4 hr usage, 60% battery still remains). nAt this price point, I should not nitpick, but I will point them out anyway. The screen is a bit dull with not-so-great viewing angles, but it still very good for this price. Also, there is an issue with the trackpad. Asus SmartGesture, which enables multi-finger gestures, does not work sometimes when the machine wakes up from sleep (other functions are fine). A reboot fixes the problem. I tried updating the drivers, but this has not helped. Anyway, I use a mouse and hence this has not bothered me much.nOverall, this is the machine to get if you're looking at a casual usage. It is also highly portable (including a lightweight charger, which is proprietary by the way). If these are your expectations, look no further. nnUPDATE: n- Tried out the inbuilt camera and found that the pictures are quite bad! The image size is VGA (640x480), and there's too much noise in the pic. So don't expect much on the camera front. Can be used for occasional video calls and that's about it. Still five stars though. n- The bootup time (till login screen) is around 6-8 seconds. It used to be less than 5 seconds before, but 8 seconds is still quite good.n- The laptop gets covered in fingerprints fairly quickly.n- The dark blue color is actually very dark. It is almost black.n- Forgot to mention before, but the 1-year office subscription comes as a product activation code which is packaged along with the laptop. You need to activate Office 365 using this code.n- The 20.8GB user space I mentioned earlier is used by Windows installation as well. So the actual free space is lower. I didn't check free space when I received the laptop; I'm guessing that it might have been around 10 - 15GB range.n- There is no Ethernet port or CD drive.n- The HDMI interface is micro-HDMI.n- It comes with McAfee LiveSafe 15-day trial. nnUPDATE AFTER A MONTH OF USE:nThe laptop is still going strong. Found a workaround for the trackpad issue I'd mentioned earlier: Go to task manager and terminate the "AsusTPCenter.exe" process. It gets re-spawned automatically, and SmartGesture starts working again.nThe multi-touch gestures are pretty decent, but it's nowhere close to that on a Macbook. But the trackpad is quite big, and I'm happy about that.nI use Chrome mostly and even after opening 25+ tabs, there is no noticeable delay in the browser. However at this point, any new application would take a couple of more seconds to launch (but once it is launched, everything is snappy again). Other than a few times when Chrome crashed, I have not encountered any problems with performance till now.nI find myself using the laptop more during travel and while attending conferences. Since the laptop & charger are lightweight, it is perfect for this. However, for more involved work, I still prefer to use my desktop at home due to its better display and computing power. nAt a budget of

Great netbook. Careful what you're buying it for.

Be sure to buy it only if you are going to do lightweight work on this. Some more details and tips for effective use:nnStorage:nOut of 32GB, only ~19 GB is available because of the recovery partition. There is no official method to remove the recovery partition as of today but it is still possible. About 12 GB is free space initially but can be augmented with a microSD. Just format the card with NTFS and mount it in a folder in the C drive. Install software into that folder from then on.nnAlso the card reader is capped at ~25MB/s but you should STILL buy a fast class10/uhs1 card. Because cards list their sequential read speed. Random read/write speed is more important if you're using it as main storage. Most good cards have random read speeds in single digits and you can buy any card with random read speed till 25MB/s and it won't be a waste. I bought the samsung evo because it had the best random rw speeds for that price (double of sandisk cards in that range)nnSpeed:nUninstall McAfee the first thing you get this and you won't have the speed problems others are complaining about. Use windows defender that is preinstalled but disabled out of the box. Disable html5 on youtube with available chrome/firefox extentions (tried both) because flash is faster and uses less memory.nnGaming (lol):nNot really meant for gaming but it can run DOTA, CS and AOE2. The framerate will be low but install DirectX end user runtime (trust me, even though ver. 11 is preinstalled) and old games will run a lot better.nnLinux:nYou can't install linux easily on this machine right now due to issues with the bootloader. Google this for better information. Nevertheless, I am using CygWin for basic linux tasks.nnFingerprints on the body:nPeople are complaining that the body is a fingerprint magnet. I can assure you that this is NOT a problem with the Gold version. Blue version might be.nnThese were my only concerns while buying because other specifications are good enough.
