Summary: Absolutely wonderful! In case you don't know, Asus manufactured computers for many top computer companies who in turn put their names on them. This computer, I am on it now, has been great for everything I do on line or off line.

Summary: honestly if your a gamer do NOT get this computer. The graphics card is so bad I would throw it out the window if I could. the core processer is amazing its great for internet browsing and great for Photoshop and editing. BAD GAMING COMPUTER!
Summary: Lenovo is a brand I haven't had problems with and yes I have owned it quite a while, in fact over 3 years! No problems at all!
Pros: It was great while it worked! We bought 9/2014 and 5/2015 it breaks. The video card fan went bad. This was a refurb from new egg and the fan on the video card is bad. there is only a 90 day warranty. Had to fix it since it was out of warranty. Got it somewhat quiet but won't ever buy Asus again.
Cons: Read under pros. Video card fan broke before the one year mark. I have never had a video card fan break that quick. less than one year. Won't buy asus again
Summary: Get a fast SSD, the 1TB drive they give you is ok, but you'll increase your windows score by atleast a full point with HD alone.
Pros: Tremendous value for the money. Top notch build on the components. I did put in a better video card and SSD. very quiet and fast. Comes with Windows 8.1
Cons: I don't know if it was the hardware changes or something else but windows wouldn't activate. I had to call their activation line and do the numbers voodoo to get it to activate. Evidently this is an issue because when you register your ASUS with ASUS (use the number from your manual not the one o...
Pros: See my earlier review as far as the PC is concerned.
Cons: I contacted Asus as per the instructions given on the "sorry you're having problem's" response. I received one email back, and that was it. I believe Asus has NO intention of correcting this problem that their own update site generated. Very discouraged.
Summary: By the year end of owning this machine, the video card had died. The monitor would suddenly go into sleep mode when even in the BIOS and boot process. ASUS customer support gladly took it back in and replaced the card free of charge, though it cost us $20 to mail it in.
Pros: Sleek looking case. Great performance, other than the video card.
Summary: There are other manufacturers out there. Unless you're sure you won't need service-- you'd be better off selecting one of them
Pros: nice machine- good combo of parts at a good price. decent components
Cons: Asus service is terrible, Initially bundled software stopped working after the 8.1 upgrade. Asus support's advise was to go back to win 8.0. More recently (after almost a year of ownership) the main partition hd corrupted for some reason, I went to restore the WIn 8.0 from the restore partition a...
