Hi,

Ordered one so I can tell you once I've had it a few days but can't seem to find any reviews for this exact model.

Amazon returns are usually easy so might be worth ordering one then sending it back if you're not happy. Not sure if the deal is just for today

Please let us know what you think of it when you get it.

One thing that concerns me is reports that the hinge isn't super sturdy and conflicting information on whether or not the keyboard is backlit.

Cheers.

Mine has arrived today. The hinge is in 2 parts not 1 single one like I had seemed on some of the reviews. Feels quite sturdy to me but obviously not had it long.
It also has a full size enter key which I wasn't expecting from the reviews I had seen.
Wifi is definitely AC as connected at 886.7 Mbps to my 5ghz network
Keyboard is backlit and has a couple of brightness settings.
Resolution is 3200 x 1800, some issues with scaling on sites from what I have seen so far but also experienced this in other windows machines with high res.
Only used for an hour so no idea on battery life.
Also comes with a nice sleeve and usb to ethernet adapter in the box.
Fan can be heard with no background noise but can't hear it with the TV on.

Thx for the update. Good that it's backlit, unfortunatly the price has shot back up but maybe they will do something for cyber monday...

Thanks for getting back.

Where are the fan grills located?
How much storage space is available after the stock software and os?

What colour does it come in from Amazon ?

Back to full price

Original Poster

84.7 of 118 free after bloatware, windows and I installed a few apps myself, 7zip, opera etc.
I would describe the colour as gunmetal.
As little deal mentioned above, unfortunately it looks like it has gone back up to full price now.

Bought the x360ca at Curry's for hundred more... Very zippy but crappy screen

Hey guys,

This is for all the people who were lucky enough to grab this for £600, or anybody else that owns the ux360ua.

I really like the laptop and want to buy it, I've been looking around for deals for over a month now and there's been nothing, so it seems I'll have to cough up £785 to get it from Amazon, as thays the cheapest.

Based on your usage of it so far, do you think it's worth that much? And have you found any issues with it so far? Loud fan? Poor battery life? Anything like that?

Please get back to me as soon as you can!
