    Does somebody have it home?
    We have them in our country in eshops, but every eshop says, that it has 23Wh battery, which is too low. On asus webpage is 50Wh, which is optimal.
    I would like to know real battery capacity...

    Thank you,
    it's weird but battery life on WiFi was just something over 4 hours and playing movies was over six hours...

    Okay, I have got this notebook finally.
    Wanted i7 version, but it still isnt in stock, so I bought i5 version only.
    It has decent battery life. I can get over six hours on linux while browsing the web.
    But my battery has since first launch has 5,1% wear level.
    Another flaw is strong screen bleeding.
    One key is falling out of keyboard.
    The SSHD drive is really fast.
    Screen isnt calibrated, because the screen should be very good and I dont see any difference with my old TN notebook.
    It has really good screen backlight.

    How about its thickness? Does it have exactly the same model as UX32VD?

    I refered to some German sites and they all show 128G/256G SSD but not HDD option. I actually want a thinner one as UX32A

    The 840M should be a nice companion to the machine, good for some light gaming :)

    Its pretty thick - 18mmm, so I assume its the same as UX32VD. In our country we have UX32LN with SSHD and UX32LA with SSD. I think thinner laptops with these GPUs are impossible.
    I will tell, what is playable, but I have got some issues (formatted ESP partition :D ) and I have to solve this first. Btw I will use RMA for it, because it has too many flaws.

    Well, 18mm is kind of acceptable for me, but too many flaws...

    I'll wait for its debut after April 10 in EU to make sure if there is thinner model as advertisement shows.

    And, could you please tell about those flaws? I don't have chance to experience it in store since it will not be available in my country

    that sounds really bad. Can you find out what panel type/name/manufacturer was built in your unit? In the review i posted above they seemed to be very pleased with the screen:

    Very high brightness and contrast can comfortably operate outdoors, viewing angles are very high, and the color rendition is close to perfect - it's one of the best displays of modern compact Ultrabooks.

    are you going to take your chance with another unit or you're giving up on this model?

    What about the body? can you tell if it's plastic coated with some sort of metal or is it really "carved from a single block of aluminum" as Asus states on their webpage?

    thanks :)
