Asus VivoBook S56CA-DH31-CA

 

Although the Asus VivoBook S56CA-DH31-CA boasts an integrated DVD burner, reasonable price tag, and generous two-year warranty, its subpar keyboard and average performance hold it back from ultrabook greatness.

Integrated DVD burner. Two-year warranty. Reasonably priced

Only one USB 3.0 port. Subpar keyboard doesn't include backlighting. Some bloatware

The Asus VivoBook S56CA-DH31-CA ($599.99 CAD list) is a Windows 8-equipped ultrabook that stands apart from the increasingly saturated field by virtue of its integrated DVD burner, reasonable price tag, and generous two-year warranty. Unfortunately,...

Upgraded and happy

 

I bought this as a refurb and immediately upped the RAM to 8gb, then swapped the hdd out for a 512gb SSD. The machine rocks right now. I wish I could upgrade to 16gb of RAM, but this motherboard may be able to read it but not use it. At this point, I...

Great footprint ; sexy metallic finish inside and out ; Easy to take apart to upgrade ; Thin and feels solid ; Most Ultrabooks at this size and weight dont have an optical drive. This does

Wouldnt mind thinner ; No touchscreen though to be truthful, I find them to be unnecessary and prefer without them ; Wish it could accommodate over 8gb of RAM

I will never buy an ASUS again

 

I contacted ASUS on multiple occasions to let them know I am unhappy and would like a new machine. I have been told they will contact me, that they have sent my file to higher ups, and yet I've heard nothing. This is ridiculous; no one should buy from...

nice when it works

My computer gave me the "blue screen" in month 9. Had to get the SATA board and SSD replaced. It took 4 weeks. Then, in month 11, my battery completely stopped charging. I had to get it replaced and again, it took 4 weeks. Now my AC adapter is acting up

Rolled the dice and lost

 

I wanted this computer for over a year. Unfortunately I waited too long and I couldn't find anyone selling them brand new. They had refurbed ones and I decided to roll the dice and purchase one. Welp I lost on the roll. They say they pass a quality...

Fail!

 

The first time it stopped working due to a system board failure. Then, a few months later, it was the SATA drive and a cable that failed. We have to pay to ship it back ($40 - $50 each time), and it's annoying to have to reload all of our software and...

Good when it works

We have had to send it back twice for repairs

Worked Great until Hard Drive Failed

 

Lightweight, long lasting battery

My hard drive failed last night! Purchased this in December as a Christmas gift and it has been in use for less than 6 months. Last night got the black screen telling me I need to reboot or install device. Not sure what the next steps are but I love...

Wifi

 

Thin and lightweight

After purchasing this for a customer, I realized the wifi and the internet are very flaky. I replaced the router since it was due time - but the laptop still has issues with the wifi as well as hard wired. It most times shows limited connection. Even...

Smart Gesture Shuts Off

 

OK computer

Smart Gesture is terrible. When computer goes to sleep, smart gesture shuts off and the touchpad becomes so sensitive it moves the cursor around, highlights and erases random bits of text and even activates page back and enter buttons from inadvertent...

Great Computer

 

The touchpad is almost impossible for me, but an inexpensive wireless mouse works great. I purchase another 4GB of RAM as it only cost $39

Great Laptop

 

I bought another laptop with Windows 8, from another dealer. I took it back, would not run any special programs I have. This laptop with Windows 7 works great and is fast!
