Summary: I bought this computer new. It went back to the vendor twice for repairs for issues with both the hard drive and the mother board. The hard drive was replaced twice under warrenty and then once again after the 6 month warrenty was up. 3 months back the mother board burned out again.
Summary: I chose 5 stars because this is the best desktop computer I have used. Windows 8 is fine once you get used to it. Plenty of memory for pics, videos, games etc. You might want to pick up a graphics card if your downloading a game like Planetside 2. Great for everyday home use.
Summary: After my dinosaur of a desktop. Finally crashed and burned after many years of service, I broke open the Consumer Reports to do some research about today's options. Laptops do not cut it for me. My fingers are too big for those tiny keys. But I didn't want a clunky desk top either.
Summary: Love that asus put usb ports on the side for mouse receiver now back ports are free. Card reader also in perfect place so i don't have to turn pc around its right on the side. terra bit hard drive will never get filled. AWSOME COMPUTER
Summary: The computer is compact and uses minimum wiring which was such a mess. The screen is wide and bright and color perfect. The USB ports on the side a easy to access. I am not using the wireless mouse because I need a ball one, but it was easy enough to switch.
