Could you post your Crapschmidt posts over in the World of Woot thread?

That's the only thread being checked for questions.

Plus, if there is a booboo in a clue, the first two people that report it in THAT thread, get a special Private Message from Sam. But only if you post in THAT thread.

So let's use the product threads for talking about the product and posting cute cat/dog pictures.

Or these

Here is a product related post.

A laptop running Windows 8 with a 1366x768 resolution. Hmmmm...

I like Asus better than some laptop brands, but I don't like Windows 8, nor do I like low resolution monitors.

Bear in mind that this laptop is now essentially two generations old (still using Sandy Bridge). That resolution was pretty standard, especially in the sub-12" sizes. You have to consider the cost of the high density panels as well as the added power consumption required by both the display and the GPU. Batteries in these ultrabook shells are small and Sandy Bridge still wasn't ready for long battery life. For $300, even if you don't use the touchscreen, 1366x768 is fine.

I highly recommend this to anyone that needs to frequently carry around their laptop. I was bought this one for work and I have it with me constantly. The screen is crisp and very responsive to touch. The battery lasts me all day assuming I'm in and out of meetings shooting emails and whatnot (approx. 6 hrs on time). Plenty of hard drive space is nice and no shortage of USB connections. Only downside I can mention if I had to is if you try anything super processor intensive it'll get angry and run choppy, but that's standard for any ultrabook. It's a steal at this price too.

When I am shopping, I don't give products extra leeway, just because back when they were developed, their specs were reasonable for the time. When I order something, it means I plan on using it in the near future. I do most of my work with dual 1080P monitors, and things feel so cramped when I have to use just my laptop's own screen.

I certainly have done tasks that work just fine in 1366x768, so 1366x768 is not worthless. However, it is not for me.

Picked up one of these recently (same generation as this one) and I've got to say, I love this laptop (after putting Windows 7 on it, but thats due to my beef with windows 8). I've been an Apple laptop guy forever (and still am) and one of the reasons has been because of how Apple implements it's touchpads because I hadn't come across a PC manufacturer that had come close. So with that said, here are my thoughts:

Pros:
- Realistically 4+hrs of battery life using it for web browsing. Used it the other day for heavy work (VPN, Remote desktop mostly) and got just about 4hrs of use.
- Trackpad (when using Asus' software) is nearly as good as Apple's and that's saying a lot. I can use the trackpad to do almost all the same things I do on my Macbook Air.
- Screen is very good; resolution for an 11.6" screen is about perfect.
- Sound is very good for the size of laptop it is. This things belts out better volume and clarity than my 13" MBA.
- Speed: it's a 2nd Gen Core i3; it's not going to win any speed competitions. That said, it more than enough for basic usage and is even very good for a decent light to moderate business usage.
- Build quality: This is a solidly build machine that's also relatively light. Screen has the right amount of tension for use as a touch screen but not too much.


Cons:
- Graphics: fine for basic stuff but most games will be on low settings.
- Glossy Screen: Screen quality is fine, but it LOVES finger prints.
- Sound drivers for windows 7 a little wonky, while listening to music and videos is fine, Windows alert tones don't sound off correctly in that sometimes they are at the volume they should be and some times they are quiet.

Overall, a great deal for $300, highly recommend.

Honestly, you get what you paid for with this. 2nd gen i3 processor and HD 3000 graphics are now 2 generations old, so this is definitely yesterday's laptop. For the price, though, it's really a pretty average deal. You might find better, you might find worse. If you need a small, portable laptop for lightweight tasks, this one should be fine.

Certainly true, if I were doing anything where screen real estate is a must than this would not be for me. However, for anyone who needs to check/write emails, review powerpoints and spreadsheets, or watch a movie at the airport this is the laptop for you. I had a 15" laptop before it for work and my shoulders were getting ripped from lugging the thing around. Different strokes for different folks.

I bought two of these last time they were on Woot! at the $299 price. They're fantastic inexpensive Windows 8 laptops. But one caveat!! They do NOT have Bluetooth radios! So if you need Bluetooth, you'll either need a dongle or to do without.

I used an Apple II in 1977 which had HI RES mode at 280x192 and no lower case. You can not intimidate me with your all caps use of the word "HIGH".

For a 2013 vintage laptop, 1366x768 is on the low end of commonly available resolutions.

Also, while most 720p TVs have 1366x768, the 720p standard is only 1280x720.

If you don't like laptops with annoyingly low screen resolutions, Woot really isn't the place for you.

Manufacturers love making laptops with these crappy screens, and customers love not buying them, so they filter down to Woot all of the time.

I bought one of these the last time Woot was selling them.

It may not have the latest processor, and Windows 8 sure takes getting used to (but that's true of just about any PC you buy today), but it's super portable and where else are you going to find a touchscreen laptop for this price?

So far, so good.

It's not easy to fit 1080 pixels in an 11.6 inch screen. Especially cheaply. As a reference the Acer S7 has 1080p at $1200.

After 6 months, Best Buy finally caved and gave me a store credit for this laptop that was in service longer than it was in my possession. It went in 5 times, and always for the same reason, sudden shutdown. No BSOD, no shutdown event... it behaved as if the power supply and battery were pulled, sometimes taking 2 weeks to happen, sometimes taking a day to happen. Two motherboard replacements, fan replacement, battery replacement, and disk replacement (NeXT tech on that one) didn't change a thing.

That said, it was a very nice laptop for my wife when it was working, and she ended up really liking the touch screen.

I think I'm interested, depending on how much money I lose if I need to return it.

=> Just read the return policy, this is too risky for me, especially for a refurb. I hope it works out for you guys.
