Uncomfortable configuration

But when folded open into a tablet, the edges flare out and uncomfortably dig into your palms.

Rear speakers

The down-firing speakers are surprisingly loud. Propping the laptop in tent mode allows the speakers and screen to shine.

MacBook-like keys

With its black keys and all-metal design, the Asus has some superficial similarities to the Apple MacBook Pro.
