Windows 8.1

The Return of the Start Button
After many requests from Windows users, the Start button makes its triumphant return in Windows 8.1. While it may not be exactly the same as its predecessor in Windows 7, the Start button has two core functions. A left click on the Start button will take you to the Windows 8.1 Start screen featuring live tiles. A right click on the Start button brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control, Network options and more.
Boot Directly to the Desktop
Windows 8.1 gives you the choice of booting to the Windows 8.1 Start screen with live tiles or booting to the familiar desktop screen of Windows 7. Users can also boot directly into an app or app view if they choose to.
To the Cloud
With Windows 8.1, when signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your personal Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history, and browser favorites. You can also connect to services such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and more.

You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it, so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it.

      Before I bought this laptop first I chalked out my needs. Why I need this and what would I do with this.I need something light, portable, fast device with which I can browse internet for 1. quick information2. emails3. view movies4. listen to music5. browse (and light edit) of photos using LightRoom6. probably let my kid play very basic gamesI do not need a game machine, a high end graphics editor machine. But I need good battery life.Budget less than 400 USDI had options: one machine like Asus Transformers like ASUS 64GB T100TA-C1-GR which can be used as tablet and/or a laptop -or-buy ereader + tablet + low budget notebookI picked the second option though ASUS T100TA-C1-GR has created lots of interest in current market.I went for second option. I bought - 1. Kindle: 49 USD2. Nexus 7 2012 (3G+LTE): 178 USD3. Asus K200MA notebook: 300 USD------------------------------------Total 527 USD ... yes more than ASUS T100TA-C1-GR. But I have the following advantages: 1. Nexus 7 Tablet: Its easy to carry only 7inch.I can now use dumb-phone which has battery life in days and not in hours like smart phone. I can read emails on go; and make phone calls from a reliable long batter phone. Also watch movies/listen to music when I am in transit or out in days travel.2. Kindle: Does not hurt my eyes like tablets do. And kindle is so light. Far far portable & easier than using a transformer as ebook reader. 3. K200MA notebook: back home from days work, easily carry this light weight notebook to couch and browse email or internet or watch movie. Its light, Its portable. Sometimes when I want to do light photo edit, I can do that too using Lightroom. Though I doubt how will it handle photoshop heavy edits. If required I can carry the notebook to fields when I go on photography tours.Catering to the individual needs with individual devices is far better than all in one device like ipad or transformer. It is more simple approach and multiple people can use it.That is why I am happy with my decision. Now I can read my email in Asus K200MA notebook, while my wife can read ebook in Kindle and my kid can play a game in Nexus 7. And if one goes down, we can still carry on our activity with another. And if I need to make a emergency phone call, I have reliable dumb phone to make call, rather than searching for a charger every time for a smart phone.Cons of Asus K200MA:1. The hard disk is little sluggish2. I do not like Windows 8.1; I like Windows 7 better3. Touchpad experience is not goodOvercome cons:1. Buy SDD .... lighting fast performance.2. Load Windows 7 or Linux Mint... super reliable3. Buy white color wireless mouse.What I like most in K200MA?White color looks so cool. I just love it.Experience with BH PhotoVideo shopping:1. Price not the best match with market. I had to contact them via email to get price match refund2. What was shown in their website is different from what they shipped - their website showed all white notebook, the one I got had black border around the LCD. I reported that and they updated their product picture in their website.Notes/Confusion:Model number is X200MA or K200MA.The package box reads X200MA while I bought K200MA. Turn the laptop, and not the backside ... Model is indeed K200MA, probably its built on top of architecture of X200MA model. But note - X200MA is older model (older processor+buletooth) and K200MA is newer version. It took a day before I cleared this confusion.Overall, I like to buy. Its only few days old now, battery lasts for 4 hours. Let me see whether it lasts for years. My Sony Vaio bought in 2008 still running strong except the battery. I hope this one will also live up to my expectations.Thanks,Aurobindo

      The only complaint I have with the laptop is a week after we received it, the charger stopped working. I called, and ASUS is very difficult to work with, and finally got something figured out. After filling out a two page report over the item and being on the phone for over an hour, it took them 48 hours to process the paperwork and then they finally send me a replacement. This is difficult since she is in grad school and has assignments do. The laptop itself is good and works fine, but it's frustrating overnighting an item for school and then being without it for over week when it's received.

          PROS:
          Not Powerful but can playback 4k H264 video no problem.

          VGA/HDMI outputs and a single USB 3.0 companying two USB 2.0 ports. Great for presentations or a second compact Laptop.

          CONS:
          Not as light weight as it could be and a lot smaller then I though from the pictures. It's just a touch larger than a netbook. I normally need a larger screen.(Oh and Windows Metro is garbage)

            Comments about K200MA-DS01T 11.6" Multi-Touch Notebook Computer (Matte Black):

            First one arrived with a line of damaged pixels on the screen. B&H did a quick exchange. Second one arrived with some fingerprints on the lid and screen but seemed new otherwise. There may be some issues with ASUS quality control here.

            In any case, kept the second one and now use it for a portable alternative to my larger laptop. Have been using it for web browsing and writing documents so far. Web browsing seems quick even with many tabs open. Installed LibreOffice on it and it opens quickly and works fine. Handles multiple programs running pretty well. Sometimes the media player will freeze for a second if opening another program. Haven't been able to get it to boot from a USB yet - still working on that. Lightweight (around 3 lbs) enough to carry around in a backpack all day without too much stress on the shoulders/back. Small enough to fit into a large purse, although the size is slightly awkward for fitting into a 11" notebook sleeve. The maximum screen tilt is just slightly wider than 90 degrees (the picture of the computer open depicts the maximum screen tilt). Would have been nice to have a wider tilt. The glossy screen has some glare but I have used it outdoors in the sun with no issues. Overall the body seems sturdy. Is indeed a fingerprint magnet but a quick wipe with a damp cloth removes most smudges. The trackpad seems to respond fine.

            Overall, if you are looking for a lightweight laptop for simple tasks, this would be a good fit.

              While neither the processor nor the hard drive is very fast, I find this model nearly ideal for word processing and light photo editing on the go. (I am a travel journalist who shoots most of his own stills and video.) With Windows 8.1, it handles Photoshop Elements, Google Chrome, and OpenOffice simultaneously without any noticeable lag. It's a good compromise of size/weight and functionality. USB 3.0 is a help for quick backups. Shortcomings? The screen is only 1366x768 (fine for video, not so great for photo editing), the screen is subject to glare and washout in bright light, and the build seems slightly flimsy. But does it do what I need it to when I need it and as long as I need it? Absolutely.

                        I know what you're thinking - How can this thing "rock" looking at the specs. I'm rating this as to what I wanted it for. Something I can move from bedroom to couch, go on line, play games (I'm not a big gamer and the games I play don't need a lot of gpu power), and watch videos. I've had this for over a week and it performs everything very well. The small size is great for computing while relaxing in bed. The keyboard functions very well and the touch screen is a really nice feature too. Powers up/down quickly. I also run a much older version of Photoshop on it (V 7.0 I think) and I have no problems doing what I need to do. All-in-all, you can't beat the bang for buck with this one. I've always liked Asus components, but never owned an Asus made computer. They have a winner with this model. Way to go Asus (and as always, B&H)!

                          I could not believe how well built this computer is for the price. The body is very slender and light, the specs are all very good, and the touch screen works perfectly. This is the first laptop I've bought that has a touch screen and was weary whether it was a feature I would even want... it's actually very useful! The computer is seems very fast for all normal everyday use. I bought it more for travel since I have a much larger almost $ laptop for home use, but I was shocked by how much this little laptop can do! I highly recommend this laptop. I would buy it again for sure!

                              After I learned how to use the ridiculous Windows 8.1, I found this machine to be highly superior. Everything worked well from the onset. Minor situations:
                              1) keys are not back-lit
                              2) often when hitting a key you could hit the wrong letter/number (nothing to do with finger size)

                              This is a fine buy for the price and offers incredible latitude of use.

                              The touch screen is useless other than when closing the computer down.

                              Highly recommended.

                              The only complaint I have with the laptop is a week after we received it, the charger stopped working. I called, and ASUS is very difficult to work with, and finally got something figured out. After filling out a two page report over the item and being on the phone for over an hour, it took them 48 hours to process the paperwork and then they finally send me a replacement. This is difficult since she is in grad school and has assignments do. The laptop itself is good and works fine, but it's frustrating overnighting an item for school and then being without it for over week when it's received.

                                My use of this project is for email, searching on the web, occasional streaming video, Quicken, and during travel. At home, I use this laptop with a separate keyboard, mouse, and full HD display. It works fine, once you figure out how to operate Windows 8.1 in non-touch screen mode. Only the various peculiarities of Windows 8.1 prevent me from giving this product 5 stars!

                                This is a solid little laptop at a great price. I don't know that there's a better bargain for a touch screen this size. I've had it for a week or so and no major complaints. Other reviews warned -- and I agree -- that the case picks up fingerprints far too easily and the cursor can be jumpy, but these are minor points in my view. It's fast and light and so far performs as well as I'd hoped.

                                Before I bought this laptop first I chalked out my needs. Why I need this and what would I do with this.I need something light, portable, fast device with which I can browse internet for 1. quick information2. emails3. view movies4. listen to music5. browse (and light edit) of photos using LightRoom6. probably let my kid play very basic gamesI do not need a game machine, a high end graphics editor machine. But I need good battery life.Budget less than 400 USDI had options: one machine like Asus Transformers like ASUS 64GB T100TA-C1-GR which can be used as tablet and/or a laptop -or-buy ereader + tablet + low budget notebookI picked the second option though ASUS T100TA-C1-GR has created lots of interest in current market.I went for second option. I bought - 1. Kindle: 49 USD2. Nexus 7 2012 (3G+LTE): 178 USD3. Asus K200MA notebook: 300 USD------------------------------------Total 527 USD ... yes more than ASUS T100TA-C1-GR. But I have the following advantages: 1. Nexus 7 Tablet: Its easy to carry only 7inch.I can now use dumb-phone which has battery life in days and not in hours like smart phone. I can read emails on go; and make phone calls from a reliable long batter phone. Also watch movies/listen to music when I am in transit or out in days travel.2. Kindle: Does not hurt my eyes like tablets do. And kindle is so light. Far far portable & easier than using a transformer as ebook reader. 3. K200MA notebook: back home from days work, easily carry this light weight notebook to couch and browse email or internet or watch movie. Its light, Its portable. Sometimes when I want to do light photo edit, I can do that too using Lightroom. Though I doubt how will it handle photoshop heavy edits. If required I can carry the notebook to fields when I go on photography tours.Catering to the individual needs with individual devices is far better than all in one device like ipad or transformer. It is more simple approach and multiple people can use it.That is why I am happy with my decision. Now I can read my email in Asus K200MA notebook, while my wife can read ebook in Kindle and my kid can play a game in Nexus 7. And if one goes down, we can still carry on our activity with another. And if I need to make a emergency phone call, I have reliable dumb phone to make call, rather than searching for a charger every time for a smart phone.Cons of Asus K200MA:1. The hard disk is little sluggish2. I do not like Windows 8.1; I like Windows 7 better3. Touchpad experience is not goodOvercome cons:1. Buy SDD .... lighting fast performance.2. Load Windows 7 or Linux Mint... super reliable3. Buy white color wireless mouse.What I like most in K200MA?White color looks so cool. I just love it.Experience with BH PhotoVideo shopping:1. Price not the best match with market. I had to contact them via email to get price match refund2. What was shown in their website is different from what they shipped - their website showed all white notebook, the one I got had black border around the LCD. I reported that and they updated their product picture in their website.Notes/Confusion:Model number is X200MA or K200MA.The package box reads X200MA while I bought K200MA. Turn the laptop, and not the backside ... Model is indeed K200MA, probably its built on top of architecture of X200MA model. But note - X200MA is older model (older processor+buletooth) and K200MA is newer version. It took a day before I cleared this confusion.Overall, I like to buy. Its only few days old now, battery lasts for 4 hours. Let me see whether it lasts for years. My Sony Vaio bought in 2008 still running strong except the battery. I hope this one will also live up to my expectations.Thanks,Aurobindo

                                    I bought this for travel having tried an iPad and an Acer 10" tablet. The Acer was awful but that's another story. The iPad was too different than my PC. The little Asus notebook works well for travel, handling e-mail, web browsing, and storage of new photos without a fuss. It takes up only a little more room than a tablet and of course the keyboard is more natural than trying to type on glass.

                                          Bought this for my daughter for school use. It is not too heavy nor large to tote around. The touch screen is a great feature. We bought the white model which stays cleaner than black computers (believe it or not) as fingerprints aren't as visible. The speakers also have the ability to play quite loudly, especially for a small computer. Great value for the price!!
