Summary: I've been running this machine for over a year without any major issues. The problems I encountered was the DVD draw stopped working after several months. I can eject the DVD draw using file manager eject option. I can't afford to be without the machine so I did not return the unit.
Summary: PROS: Nice design Good bang for the buck ASUS ranked high for reliability Very QUIET - almost silent CONS: Glossy, reflective screen Even with all of my (blackout) curtains closed during the day, I can still see myself reflected in the screen.
