    "This attractive, light-weight computer has serious flaws, the most outstanding being that it is not portable! It reads "Plugged in, not charging," and even when constantly plugged in, the percentage diminishes slowly but surely. We have tried to remedy this problem repeatedly (apparently it happens with some frequency as there are many suggested remedies on line) but the battery cannot be removed by the owner, only a Toshiba professional (warranty issues), and even when the problem has been resolved, it returns the first time one tries to use the computer as portable. In addition, there are Window issues, little quirks that aren't important in and of themselves but only as an indication that something wrong is lurking below the keyboard. For example, I can't display a desktop photo, but when the computer is shutting down, it appears for an instant, and, sometimes the volume adjust icon works--and sometimes not! More importantly, I have lost work, and recovery techniques show aborted save attempts, even those done automatically every five minutes"

    "First off I want to say that this is a solid laptop. However, Asus and Microsoft have some issues to work out with Asus Fliplock. I recently purchased one of these laptops and when I turned it on and tried to use the flip capability it didn't work. So being a nerdy computer guy that I am I called the manufacturer and started the troubleshooting steps. First off they had me doing all the same things that I had ready tried, like downloading the drivers from their site, trying older drivers, and even resetting the laptop. When all that was done and it still wasn't working I got with Amazon and had them ship me another one.Well here we go again the second one (side note: they both were sealed and brand new) I turned it on like I did before and WOW, still not working. The only difference on this one is that I didn't connect it to the internet like I did the first one. Theory on this is that sometimes Microsoft drivers will overwrite the manufacturer drivers that work better. Once again I called Asus and repeated the same things I did before. This time the tech support guy was baffled as to why it wasn't working. He sent me on to the tier 2 support but said that could take 24 - 48hrs for them to get with me and when they do they can get with Microsoft to fix the driver issue, but they didn't know how long that was going to take.At this point, I am tired of dealing with a brand new laptop that is supposed to work right away. Now with all that said the laptop itself is very nice and I really find no fault in the manufacture. I have bought and will continue to buy Asus products. I think it is an issue with Microsoft changing something in an update that broke the link between the manufacturer driver and the hardware.That is the reason I gave this three stars, it would have been four but due to the fact that this laptop is a 2 in 1 and that function isn't working, I took one star off. If though you don't care about the 2 in1 and want a very thin light weight laptop that is very comparable to the Dell XPS 13, then I would get this one. I did end up going with a Dell Inspiron 7378 and I am very happy with that, it is a bit bigger but still just as nice. Sorry for the lengthy review I just felt like I could help out and keep someone else from going through what I did."
