Good: light, small, sturdy, ...
Bad: just one think, but crucial, under full load 100%, two threads, it overheats and craches! So it is not an ultrabook but ultrabullshit!
Comment: What is the need of having i7 2600 in a note, if you can not use it? Dear Asus designers, have on mind, that some peaple really need the full throatle. In the next line please solve the cooling issues. Under linux even two thread computing using 100% cause the Asus UX21 to restart in a matter of seconds, at most 1 minute. The temperature very quickly grows to critical one (lm-sensors). From all the positive reviews, one can only conclude that 99% of people do not really need this notebook. Please buy something cheaper with for example i3. It is enough to read e-mails and watch youtube videos :) And a lot cheaper than an underclocked i7...Cheers
Comment: Looks well built and its performance, portability makes it a must own..
