Wife loves it

 

Small size ; Great bang for buck

Touchpad goes wonky sometimes ; Hybrid drive does not make it feel like it has an SSD

nice start, now falling apart

 

Light, small, relatively fast

The screws holding it together on the underside are all coming loose and falling out after 6 months of ownership. Trying to put them back in shows they are stripped or defective. Will have to RMA

Our biggest mistake of 2013

 

Slick looking—but that only served to mislead us

Had we known the worthlessness of both ASUS screens and ASUS customer service, we would have never considered this purchase. Unfortunately, this ultrabook had everything we were looking for, and once we figured out how to customize Windows 8, it was a...

Good HW, possible gotchas

 

This is a good, inexpensive computer that could have been 4.5 eggs. Unfortunately, it came with a wifi card that had to be restarted daily, and obsolete anti-theft software. The anti-theft software is linked to he BIOS, and has the ability to lock the...

ASUS S400CA-RSI5T18

 

very light, thin and sleek touchscreen for a cheap price. speakers are very nice for an ultrabook

Wonderful computer

 

It would be nice if these would ship with Windows 8.1 instead of requiring you to go through the extensive update process after you receive it.

Being an Ultrabook, it's thin and light but still has a comfortably large screen. Being an Asus, it looks fantastic and feels very solid. I can grab one corner of the base and lift it off the table without the chassis or screen flexing one bit. The...

None to speak of

Portable :) - Low config :(

 

Light weight ; Touch Pad

No Backlit keyboard ; Bronze brushed lid attracts smudge marks easily ; Screen attracts smudge marks easily ; About 3:30 hours of battery life - Which is low for ultrabooks
