        Comments about ASUS Zenbook UX51VZ-DH71 15.6" Notebook & 8GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet Bundle:

        I finally replaced my desktop tower with a laptop, and it was difficult to find something powerful enough to match my fairly recent desktop. I'm a software developer, so low performance costs time. This fits the bill, and is both lightweight and stylish for working outside the home.

        Despite using ultraquiet fans in my desktop, this laptop is much more quiet. The external drive I use for bulky files is louder, and may get replaced by a laptop drive soon.

        I also am making good use of the Nexus 7 (2012 model) to replace my 10" Xoom tablet, since this is faster and lighter. I didn't really need the extra screen space, so the 7" tablet fits my new streamlined needs.

        I use the laptop closed under my monitor when I'm at home, to save desk space. I use a wireless keyboard and mouse, and the whole setup works nicely.

        My only issue so far is that the wireless keyboard can't wake up the laptop. I spent a few hours verifying that everything was correct, updated drivers and bios, verified bios settings, etc. No luck, so I have to open the lit a bit (barely enough room under the monitor) if I put it to sleep. I haven't done that much yet, but I would probably do so if it was possible to wake the laptop up with the keyboard.

          Comments about ASUS Zenbook UX51VZ-DH71 15.6" Notebook & 8GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet Bundle:

          I've used ASUS motherboards for over 10 years, and this is my second ASUS laptop (the other one, purchased about two years ago, is still going strong). It is solid, rugged, lightweight, has a beautiful screen and very usable keyboard. It's got a gesture touchpad, but I almost always use a USB mouse anyway.

          All 3 USB ports are USB 3.0, which is nice (my last ASUS only had 1), and I don't miss the CD drive at all. Battery life is tremendous, Windows 8 is taking a bit to get used to, but overall this is an awesome machine.

          I use this is my primary work laptop and I do CAD schematic and circuit board design, as well as software compiling. No problems yet. The SSD is lightning fast and the computer boots in the blink of an eye.

          I've heard some complaints about a loud fan. Yes, in a silent environment, you can hear the fan. But it's not like a vortex or vacuum cleaner, and doesn't bug me one bit, especially since there is almost always some ambient noise around me.

          100% recommended.

            I purchased this bundle a couple weeks ago, and so far have been pleased. I've admittedly not used the tablet too much since I mainly just wanted the laptop. So as for the laptop, my only complaints are that the fan is constantly running, which I had read about before buying, but it still gets distracting at times. And second, the speakers are on the bottom edges of the laptop, which doesn't make sense to me, and tends to muddle the sound a bit. That being said, performance-wise I have no complaints and have been relatively satisfied.

            Bought this laptop for law school. Great so far. Lightweight and super fast with a gorgeous (and huge!) display. Fan noise tends to be non stop but is fairly quiet and any other ambient noise will mask it. So far I've had internet explorer and some apps freeze up a couple of times but I'm not sure if that has more to do with windows or the computer. Battery life is what I would expect (3.5-5 hours) and can be extended by darkening screen. Excellent sound for a laptop. So far very satisfied with this machine and would highly recommend it.

            Can't figure out the tablet, but I love the Zenbook! It is fast, it has a beautiful screen (and can drive two outboard monitors (with an appropriate adapter) at HD resolution. The only negatives are the bloatware Mcafee which continually puts up a pop up is almost impossible to get rid of, and a jerky track pad that is much improved by the fact that you can tap it rather than click it--but it is still not totally reliable (but a mouse is). Battery life is just OK, but at 2560 x 1440 pixels, what can you expect? The keyboard keys are well-spaced, and if they were had curved keys, it would be just about perfect. I also recommend Windows 8 Pro over regular Windows 8.

                This laptop is amazing. It is unbelievably fast and the battery life is much better than advertised. The only thing is the fans. They never turn off and usually are tolerable but sometimes can be irksome. But this thing is a beast. I was able to run through source sdk 2007 with the highest setting on everything in 1080p with 4x antialiasing and she averaged 56 fps. You won't be disappointed.

                The tablet also is incredible. I have been playing super smash bros nonstop since I turned the thing on.
                This is a great purchase and I would recomend it to anyone

                This is one of the best laptops from Asus. If you want to buy a light-weight computer with a 15 inch screen and 1080 resolution display, then this is your laptop.

                My use is mostly word processing and web browsing, so the storage space and ram is enough to get my work done. The design of the keyboard and the sharp 1080 resolution display are what brought me to this particular choice. Although there have been complaints about the laptop's sharp front edge where one's wrists naturally lay as you type on the keyboard, I have not had this problem because I keep my hands and arms hovering over the keyboard. They don't lay over the front metal egde. The speakers do not disappoint. They are adequate on their own, but do use the included subwoofer to fully make use of the quality speakers built into this great, portable computer.

                A very notable issue is that this is a noisy laptop. Its fans hum continously---occasionally sounding like a jet engine revving up then slowing down. As long as you do not mind the noise, this laptop will certainly please.

                    Comments about ASUS Zenbook UX51VZ-DH71 15.6" Notebook & 8GB Google Nexus 7" Tablet Bundle:

                    I purchased this laptop for my work; developing software and using Photoshop and Illustrator for side work. I have been searching for a 13" or 14" ultrabook for several months with no luck on obtaining the right feature set. I wanted at least an Intel i7, 8GB of RAM, 256GB SSD, high-res display and Win 7 Pro. It was difficult to find the right combination without having to modify the unit or re install a new OS.

                    I finally gave up and decided that the 15" market offered more options. This Asus model seems big and a little heavy but it's well worth the trade off for performance. It is thin and dense, but light relative to most other 15" models currently on the market. I did have to get Win 8 with an upgrade to Pro. I have no clue how MS developed such a discombobulated user interface. However, all my development software works without any problems.

                    This machine is very fast in terms of hard drive performance (RAID 0) with two SSD's. Programs load instantly, the OS boots in seconds. I big improvement from my aging Toshiba. The display is perfect and bright. Any additional pixels would make the text too small to read in native form. The housing finish is excellent. The keyboard is perfect for me.

                    I like Asus, however their model numbers and configurations are poorly marketed and difficult to search and find.

                    My experience with B&H has been excellent. They seems to be very competitive with pricing as well.

                    I hope this helps.
