The keyboard is decent, the 10-key is a bit difficult with the keys not being the right size on the side. The button press is tactile and usable and the feel is fine enough for typing blind, which you shouldn't have to do since the keyboard is back-lit.
The touch pad is okay, it's actually a bit too sensitive, the lower corners can be used as buttons but I would greatly prefer physical buttons like on the current Lenovo brand laptops. The touch pad has a fingerprint reader in the top right corner which interferes with the operation of the touch pad but at least the fingerprint reader is fast!
The speakers are complete garbage, they have no semblance to actual sounds and it sounds like you are listening to a cellphone speaker through a wooden door. They are completely unusable for anything at all, do not buy this laptop if you enjoy playing anything on your speakers.
The webcam is usable, but it's nothing to write home about, capping out at 720p/30fps it will feel like a power-point presentation more than a video feed on any video chat. The sound is about the same as phone quality. If you do video chats frequently, find another laptop.
Back to windows and 'S Mode'. Windows is pre-installed, it had some of the latest updates already so it was recently installed. It doesn't have much bloatware, but having Skype installed is too much already. The "type" of Windows that is installed is called 'S Mode' which is basically a locked down completely restrictive version of Windows. You can't even download Chrome from the web you have to get it from the Microsoft store - Chrome being the first app I install on any Windows computer -. I removed 'S Mode' almost immediately.
The laptop has 4Gb of non-removable memory and 4Gb of replaceable memory which is nice even though it's only single channel.
The laptop is made from a plastic frame which I actually don't mind, it makes the laptop reasonably light, but it gives it a cheap experience. Opening the lid for example requires two hands or a technique, both of which is actually mildly inconvenient.
The good: Decent keyboard and touch pad, fast loading web pages
If you like a want a PC for viewing Netflix/media at home with no headphones, look somewhere else. If you want a PC for viewing Wikipedia/news then this will be decent but there are cheaper laptops that can do that better. If you have a fancy IPS monitor, you will hate this laptop. If you are even thinking about gaming, the answer is no.
Seeing as this laptop has such limited uses with the horrible screen and speakers, I cannot give this laptop a better review that 3 stars. It's only purpose is to view webpages and basic coffee-shop work.
You can ADD any 2.5 inches HDD or SSD into this little beast! U can also replace de 4 gig dedicated ram to a 8 gig ram if you want to ! The ssd is a Kingston and Ram is Samsung. Great great great product. Asus really pushed quality on this one.
-Great value on sale at about $600
-Fantastic IPS 1080p screen with wide viewing angles and little graininess
-Thin and light for the size, tiny footprint and bezels
-Great CPU and GPU performance for the price
-FAST WiFi and SSD drive, equal to much more expensive options
-Decent speakers with good sound and bass
-English Keyboard, not bilingual
-Keyboard is backlit nicely
-Touchpad uses precision drivers and is made of glass
-Chassis is surprisingly solid for the price
-HDMI 2.0 is included, pushed 4K 60Hz with 8 bit color perfectly
-No glossy surfaces to soil and get scratched up
-Comes with accidental damage warranty (1 year) out of the box
-Short battery life ~4.5 hours under normal use makes this not very portable, luckily power brick is small
-Sound is distorted at high volume and the chassis rattles
-Backlight bleed on the otherwise fantastic screen
-Fan has an annoying whine when under load
-Soldered on 4GB ram module, if you upgrade its a weird 12GB configuration
-2GB ram permanently allocated to the Vega GPU. Expect only 6GB usable ram out of the box
