Summary: Love this computer. It does everything I need and want. However, you can't kill some of the windows 8 game apps it comes with, but most of the other bloatware is easy to kill. The trackpad is very sensitive, so you have to learn to type with your fingers off the keyboard (better ergonomic posture, or so I'm told). It's tough, fast and easy to clean. The case gets smears and fingerprints on it easily, so be warned of that.
Summary: Great gaming laptop. To big and heavy for real-life compatibility, but that's expected. All parts are top-notch. Very fast and runs all my games at max settings with ease. Very nice back-draft venting - your lap never gets hot. Screen is big, bright and sharp. Boots quickly with the hybrid HHD. I'm very happy with it - great job ASUS!

Summary: First of all and most important. Asus must correct this issue urgently if wants more stars. The high temperatures are annoying! Idle temperature easily reachs 80 degrees celsius with fan off!!! When it starts, and I got tell you, it starts when it wants, the idle tempreature goes to 53 degrees celsius. Playing at high and above, tempreature reaches 90 degrees. All the time! The fan is silent but Asus should have created a software to control the fan speed.
Summary: My son is so happy with this computer purchase; he always wanted a gaming laptop, and now his wish came true. It has so many features on it, words just can't describe it, but nonetheless, it's a great value for the money.

Summary: This computer is riddled with problems. First the keyboard is non functional. Specifically, it randomly jumps back several words and begins typing in the middle of the wrong word. Secondly, the right click does not work. Third the sound card is defective. Two different microphones that work perfectly on my other computers can barely be heard on this computer on playback of a recording even with mic volume maxed out on the sounds. Asus is a substandard company.
Asus probably has been the best cooling system for any laptop maker

Summary: A beast of a laptop! The Nvidia 870m has handled everything I threw at it so far at max without breaking a sweat! Asus probably has been the best cooling system for any laptop maker. It does not get hot or noisy at all under full load. Just lukewarm on the right palm rest at it's worst. There are drawbacks though.
