Summary: The first time, the battery did not work. Sent back to Amazon and received replacement. After 3 months, lines came up on the screen and it was completely jumbled. Dealing with ASUS support is terrible. Now they have lost my info and they cant tell me the status of my repair. Terrible support. Amazon was great to deal with but after their return timeframe was over, i had to deal with ASUS.
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. My dislike of windows 8 is another story though.
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 of internet blogs explains it). ASUS website have all the native drivers for this laptop? compatible with win 7 so there is no problem on this side.
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.
Summary: I live in Guatemala, there is no guaranty coverage in Latin America for this product, so I am pretty much screw. So I have to send this computer back to United States. I strongly suggest buying another computer. I have a Dell Laptop that is 7 year old and still works, I think now I am going to buy a Mac Pro, because Windows 8 is the worst operating system, and is not even useful on Asus computer, because it doesn’t have a touch screen, don’t know why Asus sells this...
Summary: THIS REVIEW IS NOT BASED ON THE OS. I HAVE THE WINDOWS 8 VERSION. I have owned this laptop for a few days now. I bought it for college, wanting a laptop that would fulfill any desire I had while at college (gaming, writing papers, etc.) Screen size: I like the size of the screen. I specifically wanted a 15.6'' laptop. Specs: This laptop has very nice specs for the price. A nice quad core Ivy Bridge processor and a basic NVIDIA GeForce GPU.
