    Sweet spot Little confusion going on with the VW model. Apparently they’re still using images from the older JW model along with the specifications.UX501VW is the latest UX501 line and it’s great.

The keyboard seems the same, but I’m not getting any mis key strikes on this one.Touchpad: I’m very used to the Asus touchpad and have never had any issues moving around.

On moderate load, you’ll get maybe 5 hours of battery life in both Windows and Ubuntu, I get maybe 2 or 3 when pushing the CPU. Remember this is meant to be a professional workstation. If you’re working with things like SolidWorks/CAD, music/video production, software development, scientific computing, gaming or just like to have thousands of browser tabs open — well then this is the computer for you! If you need something with more stamina, can make it through an 8 hour flight, and are just doing PowerPoint, web browsing, watching videos, etc, I’d recommend going with…
