Summary: I love Asus. I have Asus Eee Shell (a small laptop) and an Asus Transformer tablet. I love this particular Asus. However, I can't emphasize enough how bad Windows 8 it. I should have gotten it with Win 7.
Summary: So far I have used this laptop for school work, watching movies, and managing my iphone and ipod content. It starts up fast and works so smoothly. It took me a couple of days to get used to Windows 8 but now I am in love with it. Asus was the perfect choice for me. I recommend this laptop.
