Reviews for the Asus S56CA-DH51
Source: Techreview Source
The Asus S56CA-DH51 is another new 15-inch Windows 8 Ultrabook that has an attractive aluminum design and a speedy Intel Core i5 CPU to back up its looks. Thanks to a 24GB SSD HD, it boots up quickly but the keyboard and battery life need some work.

The ASUS S56CA-DH51 delivers strong performance, a speedy boot time and good sound inside a slim and solid design. We just wish this system lasted longer on a charge and that the keyboard had a little more spring in its step. If you want to dip your toes into the Windows 8 pool --and you don't need touch -- then the S56CA-DH51 should serve you well for years to come.
