Excerpt: Very affordable alternative to Mac if you are involved in video editing. Fast processor, comes with 4GB ram. I expanded to 8GB and run cyberlink power director 12. I installed Asus wireless adapter and Star Tech FireWire adapter card, so bottom line is I'm downloading digital video from pro camcorder and editing at about half the cost of Apple computer. Sweet.
Summary: This is an excellent computer for business and general purposes. It was delivered double-boxed, as it should be, and all installed hardware and operating software was as described. Easy set-up with minimal promotional/unnecessary extra programming (bloatware) to remove. I installed Norton 360, which I prefer. The Norton install program automatically deletes the McAfee which came pre-loaded. I also use Norton Utilities to maintain the software.
Excerpt: Firstly the 50.00 rebate was a nice addition. B&H always reminds their customers of a rebate. The ASUS machine is fast and with the wireless adapter it's a great package. I use it for photo's with photo adobe programs. I didn't like windows 8.0 at all, But, after up grading to the 8.1 it did the trick. B&H always provides great service.
Summary: This computer is very quiet and its fast! I was really surprised as I never used an Asus before and didn't know how reliable they were. The only problem with this which a small problem and nothing to be concerned about is the case. Its not all the way shut and wont shut, I have tried. Does not affect the running of it though. Its fast and seems to be quick playing games and surfing internet.
An expensive disappointment, ad said 1000gig hard drive

Summary: An expensive disappointment, ad said 1000gig hard drive, actually 500. Also stated clock speed at 3.3, actually 2.8. the 4600 graphics card wont run most of my games. It only has a 350 watt power supply, hard to upgrade to better graphics without a larger power supply without installing a more powerful unit. When I turned on the MacAfee, it opened my computer to so much malware that I had to call tech support. Cost $200 to repair the system.
