Asus S46CA-XH51


Small business owners looking for an affordably priced ultrabook with some design oomph will find more than a few things to like about the Asus S46CA-XH51 ($779 list). It's a handsomely designed Windows 7-equipped ultrabook that comes equipped with a...

Built-in DVD burner. Durable aluminum chassis is easy on the eyes. Comfortable keyboard and touchpad. Reasonably priced

Only one USB 3.0 port. Keyboard isn't backlit. Bloatware. Middling battery life

So far so good...


Be careful applying windows updates. At one point it locked up and wouldn't start properly because there were so many pending updates (over 100 at first)... so I had to restore windows from the backup partition, and apply the updates a few at a time....

Decent boot time (about 30 secs.) ; Very thin (under 1 inch) ; Built in optical drive ; Good performance from the i5

Glossy screen ; Flimsy keyboard ; Excessive bloatware ; Poor battery life
