I was looking at this in store today comparing it to the lenovo 720. It is super thin and lighter, but the main drawback I had with it was the screen hinges are extremely flimsy. While holding the keyboard portion in one hand, any movement would cause the screen to bend back, this seems like it would be an issue if you were using it on a lap or lying down in bed. The screen also seemed nicer on the lenovo to me.

I think im going to stick with the lenovo as it is $300 less, albeit it has an i5 vs i7, 256gb vs 512gb ssd, and 8gb vs 16gb memory. Surprisingly, I felt the lenovo was slightly more responsive though, although I was only doing light browsing/youtube. I felt the sound on the asus was noticeably better and louder, although the lenovo seemed it would be adequate. I think the final issue for me was the trackpad...the lenovo just felt better, and seemed better quality.

Hope this helps other on the fence with this laptop.

Thanks for the comments. I also looked at this unit at BB today. The hinge on the one I looked at wasn't bad at all. It is a nice unit. Only drawback I'd say is the key travel on the keyboard. And I noticed some lag on the pointer using the touchpad. I wouldn't expect any lag for a unit with these specs, so I'm sure it's just that unit.
I wasn't able to find any reviews on this unit on the web. Trying to decide between this and the hp spectre x360.
