Summary: In the past, I had really liked the product that Asus produces, however, I have been trying to purchase a desktop computer for some relatives of mine and have had the same issue with two different towers. The monitor does not read any signal coming from the tower. It does recognize that they are connected, but aside from that, there is no display.
Great machine for all the reasons in the other reviews

Summary: Great machine for all the reasons in the other reviews, but buyer be warned the manufacturer setup the hard drive to be partitioned (it was in mine, anyway). Windows was installed on a paltry 150GB partition, and the remaining 800GB is on a separate partition. I didn't realize this until after I was done spending a whole day updating to Windows 8.1 and moving over all my data. I was never given a choice during the setup process to allow for this or not.
Summary: Compare to its price, this is a great computer. You need to spend some hours to upgrade Windows 8 to 8.1 Graphic card is good enough to run Starcraft 2 with high quality (the second best) option. I wish to have a SSD, but this computer still finishes booting in 1 minute. You will get enough mileage from this until you upgrade SSD, powersupply, RAM and graphic card.
Summary: There are many versions of the M11AD out there, this one has a 4th generation i7 which runs great! 8GB of memory, the memory is a Single stick out of two so there is room to easily expand to 16GB. The video card is a budget card and takes up an expansion slot which is not shown in the pictures but I expected it to take up the top expansion slot so i was not surprised.
Summary: This is a very nice set-up if your looking for windows 7 pro and trying to avoid windows 8. windows 7 pro can be run in xp mode which for some is a great feature. It has 6 usb 2 ports and and 2 usb 3 ports. The processor runs at about 3.4 gig. which is just about standard now. Amazon is selling this computer for $40.00 less but it's difficult to return something if it isn't quite right.
