For around NZ$2400 I'm real happy with it, though having to come to terms with Win 8 and upgrading to 8.1.1 has been a learning curve.
I can't really comment on the battery life as I seldom use it on battery alone - basically its been a space-saver for me given that I'd prefer a full size desktop monitor for gaming. But I've become accustomed to this screen area which is a vast improvement on my previous 15.6" units.
The so-called noisy drive/s are hardly a bother. The sounds from the speakers are just fine if I watch and listen to a YouTube vid. But on the few occasions I watch and listen to something more important, only earphones will do the trick.
Overall, I reckon its a 9/10 compared to my previous two Asus units, which I would've graded an 8/10 and a 7/10.
I recommend it.
