The comments should help anyone considering this

Good resolution!
Quite well revued here: (though it's a preproduction sample with a little dim screen)

It's a pity these small ultra books don't come with built in styluses

can't really see a need for such a high resolution on a 13 screen; does'nt this create alot of scaling issues?

I personally wouldn't touch Asus with a barge pole after my experiences. When it goes wrong (even if it's in warranty) your in the hands of a company called LetMeRepair...they should be called LetMeBotchItAsManyTimesAsItTakesUntilTheWarantyRunsOut.

Windows 10 (and even 8/8.1) are pretty good with this. Everything just looks beautifully sharp, but I agree FHD is probably just fine. In fact with the Dell XPS 13, I took the FHD display when offered (not the QHD) because I wanted the better battery life and considered FHD good enough, not to mention a lot cheaper.

This is exactly the experience I had! But in fairness, LetMeRepair is only doing as Asus says, it is Asus who are being the difficult ones here though I did feel some pretty serious delays that didn't need to happen, just stuff that you don't get with Apple or Sony...

thanks so much for posting... have purchased
was holding out for 256 model but at this price can't complain. Also SSD is apparently upgradeable.
you can't beat this price on a metal body, i5 with quad hd

Have to agree. Qhd is nonsense on a screen this size. Shame about the ssd needing an immediate upgrade. Otherwise a nice machine.

I had an Asus Transformer TF701 with keyboard...£250...lovely device until it failed within the first year...they tried to fix it 3 times before refusing to try again as it was then out of warranty...yeah I know I have consumer rights but they don't care. then there was my Asus nexus 7 which they made unusable with a firmware update. Never again.

Nice looking device , and lighter than a MacBook Air (just)!

The screen is unnecessarily high resolution though. It'll have a serious impact on the battery. FHD or even QHD would be more than suffice for most I think!

I bought this on Black Friday. It was nice but when I changed mine into tablet mode a popup would say that the keyboard had been disabled, then enabled again, then disabled again and so on every second. Basically, the keyboard and mousepad weren’t disabled in tablet mode which was annoying. I had already decided to send it back so didn’t explore the matter further.

I have to go with the negatives here; Asus are very poor in the after sales and update departments. Once they ship a product, apart from emergency patches and the like you will find it very hard to keep your system up-to-date stability and security wise.

Why has it gotten so much heat? When reading the comments on Amazon, it seems to be quite a rubbish product.. got less than 4 stars from 5.

I'm after smething similar but i3 will do and came across a Medion Akoya S3409 i3 for under £400 and wondered what people's opinions are and is there anything better for the money?

I have no idea X)
As per usual on HUKD it makes no sense.

I setup a camel price alert ages ago as I wanted it at this price after missing the black friday deal. It's back to that price and thought I'd post it.

i need a work laptop...

this or a refurbished lenovo thinkpad

Assuming it's this, amazon.co.uk/Med…5D7 then that's a decent little laptop!

If I'd know about this when I was last looking for a new machine, I'd have gone with this over my Lenovo!

You're paying a premium here for the admittedly nice build quality/metal chassis and very overkill display resolution. The 6200u is the standard budget i5 they stick in laptops to get the 'i5' label, and the 128gb ssd should really be 240gb at this price.

Thanks, that's the one only reservations are I have no idea what Medion are like and from reviews I've read it's seems to be a 13.3" screen in a 14.1" chassis so ends up with thick bezzle. But it does look best spec for money and I really have no use for anything more than a i3 in a little laptop

Which thinkpad? If you can go for 1920x1080, Build quality and support wise I'd take a T450s/T460s or later model X1 carbon over this anyday. Had a broken key on my thinkpad and Onsite engineer in three days.

Brilliant, well spotted - presumably you would have been all over it if it did/pulling the trigger etc.

Not at all. Just a curious thing considering the other specs.

It's all the same silicon broadly speaking between i3/5/7 with clock speed bumps which don't translate to massive performance increases in the real world, I would say having an i5 6th gen of any sort is find. The U series processors are expensive, 128GB SSD is kind of ok at this price, you see worse from other manufacturers.

AVOID
Bought this a few months back. Kept crashing on basic internet use. Gave back and got a lenovo with similar spec and price from John Lewis.

the s3409 reviews pretty well but watch out on that variation - its only got 4gb ram and cant be upgraded
Edited by: "brilly" 6th Apr

Avoid.
Absolutely appalling customer care and unreliable brand for laptops/tablets.
they will not repair your failed device for you.

Tempted on this b ut the reports of bad customer service have put me off, think I'll wait for another offer.

I looked at this and then thought for an extra £70 it's got to be worth going for the i5 8GB version for the ram alone. I ordered the i5 last night for £456 Inc. Next day delivery after lots and lots of research I do believe this to be the best value 13" ultra book available.

You got a link? Have an aged zenbook which has been brilliant and tempted by this flip book to replace but will have a look at the medium for 450

After going from 1080 to QHD+ on a 13.5", yes I don't need to but the colours and overall screen pictures were stunning.

Not for others but some will love it. I would say I didn't need it too and now I wouldn't go back after using it.

3200x1800 is just 1600x900 doubled. That's not difficult to scale.
