        Comments about ASUS S56CA-WH31 15.6" Ultrabook Computer:

        B&H has a very fast processing time.. I ordered this laptop 3am and they shipped it the very next morning. As for the laptop it self. its a very good value. with free shipping and no sales tax (I live in CA), you can't beat it! I think what most people are concerned about in a laptop is the BATTERY LIFE.. this baby gets about near 4 hours on a full charge watching netflix and web surfing... not bad for a laptop. I have ran the battery about 10 cycles and it all last around the same 4 hours.I highly recommend this laptop if you you're main use is light word processing, web, watching video. Mobility is good because its less than 5 lbs with 4 hours battery. Lastly, bought this laptop for my wife...she loves it... but only had it come in "pink"..she said~~~Cheers!

          Out of the box this computer will amaze you at how thin and light it is. Thanks to the new Windows 8 the setup is relativity painless. The computer opens programs fast switches windows with ease. I am very impressed at what you get for the money. My one and only complaint is I wish there was back-lighting on the keyboard, but that is minor.

            Comments about ASUS S56CA-WH31 15.6" Ultrabook Computer:

            Product is no doubt amazing. I am really satisfied after using it for more than a week now. Had few issues with the trackpad/mouse not responding only on admin user after windows 8 updated itself, but that was a software issue and nothing to do with the hardware. I fixed the issue by reinstalling(repairing) the already installed smart gesture trackpad driver from ASUS website.

            The only thing i did not like was B&H sent the unit from UPS ground which travelled all the way from Newyork to california on a truck and took 8 days to reach which was really frustating.

                I just purchased this laptop for my 16 year old daughter. She loves it. Its thin and light weight. She likes how big the screen is but still how light it is. The screen quality is superb. Windows 8 runs great and has enough power for everyday needs and than some. Great product. Highly recommend.
