Summary: This is a great looking computer and it's very quiet. Unfortunately, it's also very slow. My five year-old, low-end, HP laptop is two to four times faster than this machine. I thought the speed might have been due to the included OS, so I replaced it with the latest version of Ubuntu. Both my old computer and this one are running the exact same version of the software and this machine is still s-l-o-w. I'm giving it one star because of Asus' abysmal support.
