A sleek design, good speakers and zippy Core i5 performance make the ASUS S56CA a solid 15-inch Windows 8 Ultrabook.

Slim design with DVD drive; Strong overall performance; Loud and clean audio; Speedy boot time; Runs cool

Keyboard somewhat mushy; Below-average battery life

Click to EnlargeThe ASUS S56CA-DH51 delivers strong performance, a speedy boot time and good sound inside a slim and solid design. We just wish this system lasted longer on a charge and that the keyboard had a little more spring in its step. If you...

Thanks to NewEgg's service, I will return this for a replacement. Will update once the replacement is received

Looks like a very nice laptop

Touchpad is not seated correctly. I can get my fingernail underneath the right side ; Screen is defective. When I touch any part of the laptop (vibrate it) a spot in the upper left part of the screen look like a rock has been dropped into a pond. Very...

Decent mid range laptop


This machine is best for those with tons of media. Big HDD, a DVD tray, decent battery life (4.5 hours of YouTube), and surprisingly good sound out of such a slim laptop.

Great hardware for the price, and the SSD cache is a noticeable speed boost (though not as quick as a true SSD drive). The aluminium case feels sturdy which should be expected from Asus. And there's a DVD drive! Why are these dying out

Windows 8 is best experienced with a touch screen, which this doessn't have. The touch pad gestures help, but I quickly installed 3rd party software to replace the Metro UI with a classic start menu. If you plan on keeping Windows 8, maybe you should...

False information from Asus?


Nothing angers me more than purchasing something based on pre-sales information then finding out that I was given incorrect information after the purchase. I hope someone from Asus will read this and provide the correct information regarding the BIOS...

Not sure yet, was planning to buy but I am getting conflicting information about the BIOS in this model

After reading the previous review comment from Asus support that said the BIOS could not be accessed without Windows 8 I decided to call Asus to confirm this. The support rep I spoke with assured me that the BIOS on this model could be accessed on boot...

I am so happy I purchased this laptop!


I am very happy with my purchase. Especially now that I have Windows 7 as my OS now, rather than W8. Make sure you turn on all of your cores! Once you do that, you REALLY see how fast your processor is. If by some chance you don't know how to do that,...

Great Value


I bought this computer to replace my 6-year old Toshiba laptop that died a couple of weeks ago. My primary reasons for choosing this model were the non-glare 1080p screen and the backlit keyboard - both are amazing! Powerful, fast, lots of connectivity...

So far, So good


Aside from getting used to Windows 8, this unit is performing very well. I was blown away at the great internal speaker quality. I disconnected my external speakers in favor of the ones built in to this laptop. The unit itself seems to be sturdy, and I...

I waited for the great New Egg sales and upgraded to 16gb of ram, swapped hard drive for a 480gb SSD and it now boots up in 4 seconds. I bought a builders version of windows 8 pro and that ended bloatware and now I own the disc and key code. I use...

i7 quad core , high def screen , back lit keyboard, solid build and runs all my HD video, Photoshop and audio editing programs with ease and no heat build up. I bought it with plans to upgrade ram, hard drive and someday a blue ray disc drive

touchscreen would be nice to take full advantage of windows 8 and the hard drive was slow after being spoiled with SSD on my home computers
