great value for money if you are OK with not having some fancy feaures...

Summary: It has been a year since I purchased this laptop and since than it has been heavily used as our main computer at home. Since it has been discontinued for sometime, there is no point writing a review for this product however I would like to share my experiences (both the joy and the frustration) with...
Summary: Regret purchasing this. Touchpad is a mess, certain programs (like gestures) quit working intermittently. The resolution on the screen is terrible and makes things difficult to read despite the size.
Summary: The wife overall is happy with this computer though she has had a few glitches with it. Overall not bad for the price. If you want great sound pick a different laptop because this does not have it.
Summary: I bought this PC in June, HDD broke on august, since it was an open warehouse deal there wasn't a warranty, so I replaced it, 2 months later, during a boot up, bios (now called UEFI), got stuck in HDD boot.
Summary: Windows eight is definitely for touch screen. Time will tell if if this thing matches up with my past Dell purchases. Keyboard and touch pad have sensitivity issues that are a pain. I get around most of it with a wireless mouse. I'm afraid there won't be a next time for ASUS.
Summary: This is definitely a great laptop for gaming. I play Skyrim and Sims 3 and I can put them at pretty high quality levels (only with the charger plugged in though!) This laptop also has a lot of storage. I would give this a 5 star, but what's stopping me is the fact that mine has windows 8 on it.
Summary: My computer randomly shuts down without warning or reason, I contacted asus support and they made me reset it to the original setting (loosing all my installed software, some of which I had to pay for new licences) but it did not solve the problem.
Summary: Got this laptop for my teenage son to cover all his education/gaming needs (plays mostly strategy games), downgraded to Windows 7 without any problems. During the downgrading process there is only one thing raised questions - how to convert HDD from GBR HDD partitioning system to MVR (there are lots...
Summary: Great laptop so far. Installed Linux easy enough, although it through me for a few loops. Keyboard layout is clean, minimal, but fully functional with the number pad on the right. Love how it feels as I type.
