Summary: The pre-installed software has malware or the computer arrived with a virus. I've not placed any of my videos, audiobooks or music onto this new system, and the hard drive is 90% full. I can't where file(s) is/are that would take up so much space. It is no faster then the HP system it was purchased to replace, an HP 32Bit system running WIndows 7 with only 4GB of installed RAM.
Summary: Fast, quiet and unobtrusive...that is what I was looking for in a new machine that sits on my desk in full view. I looked at many of the "gamer machines" because I wanted the speed and better display available with them but I was not crazy about the blue or red case lights that seem to be a requirement with all of them. This machine is unassuming but it has proven to be capable of every task.
Excerpt: I purchased the ASUS M51AC-US002S from B&H Photo and Video to be utilized as my primary computing resource. Its major purpose is to function at the heart of my voice-over recording studio. All of my existing equipment runs beautifully with both the ASUS M51AC-US002S and Windows 8.1 (installed from the Windows Store).
Pros: Beautifully Designed, Easy To Set Up, Equipment Compatibility, Never Freezes, Numerous Usb Ports, Powerful, Quiet, Speed, Storage, Versatile
Cons: Software Incompatibility, Subpar Keyboard Included, Subpar Mouse Included
