Summary: We bought this computer about a year ago, and just recently the motherboard failed. Our local computer repair told us that asus does not make replacement motherboards available for this computer and when we called asus, they told us we were just over a year and so the warranty wasn't valid.
Summary: When I bought this computer, it was the best and fastest that I could afford. And it hasn't disappointed me yet. I usually have three things running at once and it handles them with no problems.
Summary: We've thoroughly enjoyed this computer thus far. It was better after some tweaking of Windows 8 and uninstalling a couple of the Asus-included programs that we found more of a nuisance than a use, but the computer itself and its specs have been great for what we spent on it.
Summary: This computer is a workhorse. It's got just enough video horsepower for people who want to edit photos or videos, without all the overkill that high end PCs often throw in to make it appeal to gamers.
