I researched and researched looking for the best machine I could get for my money and I could not be happier after purchasing the ASUS S56CA-DH51. Most of the negative reviews I'd read about *any* laptop was that Windows 8 was horrible. Well, that has nothing to do with the performance of the laptop.
Beyond being extra thin and light, ASUS S56 ultrabooks pack a full feature set in just 21mm. The cool grey hairline design expresses a personal professional approach. One-piece molded top casing reinforces notebook strength and rigidity, and the entire style embodies subtlety that meets all your performance portability needs.
ASUS SonicMaster Lite gives the ASUS S Series the ability to deliver more powerful sounds and richer bass to provide the best audio experience in the mainstream notebook class.
