    Hi Mike,

    I am looking for an ultrabook with optical drive and 15.6/15 inch screen size and a battery back-up of atleast 6-7 hours. I had zeroed my options in on Acer Aspire Timeline AS5810TZ, but all the ports being at the back of the laptop made it highly unsuitable. I recently came across ASUS S56CA series, it’s got 15.6 screen size, a DVD optical drive with I3/I5 option but i have no idea about its battery life.

    Would you know about its battery life?
    And could you suggest any other options?

    Thanks.
    Amit.

    I would not recommend Asus zenbook to my dog. Yes, the zenbook is pretty/stylish. Unfortunately that’s it! It’s not worth $1500. I brought mine a little over a year ago after doing extend research before spending that $1500. And guess what most of those fascinating reviews were lies. That’s zenbook has got to be my worst experience with a laptop ever. I’ve send my zenbook in for repair over fives for manufacture default. And now my laptop won’t even bother turning on. Don’t buy. Don’t buy. It’s best you burn that $1000-$1500 then to waste on that zenbook. At least you’ll save yourself the aggravation and headache.

    Marie,
    That’s a shame. I’ve had mine now for a little over a year and have had ZERO issues or complaints. I’m still not thrilled with the way the keys work (you have to push them harder than I’d like), but I would definitely purchase mine again, if I had to make the choice. It’s light (I travel a lot) and has GREAT battery life. (I don’t work for ASUS, but sorry you’ve had a bad experience).
