Summary: It's the best bang for your buck in terms of specs and quality. You can't get any other $1200 laptop with this kind of performance and looks! Just be very careful with the rubberized finish: it is sensitive to stains, abrasion and sharp objects. It got so smudgy that I decided to use a bit of premium auto interior plastic and rubber protectant/conditioner, thinking it would both protect the rubberized finish and make it look clean. Bad move. It abraded the finish!
Summary: This computer work great. Runs all my programs without a glitch. I use it for work and gaming. The only thing I don't like it the monitor, not that clear but good enough most people wount notice it. It's heavy, as expected and the charger is heavy too.
Summary: Looks great. Runs great. Does everything I need it to with more power to spare. It has yet to lag on any game I have played- high end or low end. It's as good as gaming laptops that cost $1,000 or more than this one. The only downfall I can see is that this laptop weighs quite a bit for a laptop. I don't move it very much, so it's not an issue to me. I kind of like it...seems more durable.
Summary: The laptop is pretty good quality, but Asus support stinks. They mis advertised some features. When I called them, they refused to acknowledge the error. After being given the run around over the course of about two weeks, they finally admitted they were wrong, but instead of working with me to let me upgrade, they told me they had the right to suddenly change specs without letting anyone know and it was just too bad. I'll never buy another Asus product again.
Summary: This laptop is a beast!!! I purchased the Samsung 128gb SSD and installed it as my boot drive and this thing boots up within 4 seconds. I have the 1tb drive that comes with it as my storage drive. It does not get hot. I left it on overnight and it was still somewhat cool the next morning. It is also very quiet. I am very pleased with my purchase. I am a graphic designer and it handles photoshop and illustrator with no problems. You will not go wrong with this laptop.
Great gaming laptop, only good things to say about it after over a year of use.

Summary: Bought this laptop about a year ago and still love it. My desktop PC actually has slightly better specs and I rarely even use my desktop anymore. I just love this laptop so much. It is fast, has very good graphics for the games that I play, touchpad is awesome, all around great product. If I had to find one bad thing about this laptop, it would be hard, but I would say probably the fact that it is rather bulky. So it's more of a non-travel type laptop.
Lovely Laptop with a Garbage Operating System - Battery Bad
25 August 2014
Summary: I will spare you the tech. I have had this laptop a while. It is high end for a cheaper price than the flashy brands. It is huge. Works great runs 2 screens of Lineage 2 without a hitch. However! In playing Lineage I wanted graphics to run better so I took the BATTERY out to conserve it and plugged straight into the wall. At least once every few days I played the game on battery, ran it down, charged it up and took it off.
Summary: A beast!!! I love this machine, I decide to replace my old laptop Dell XPS L502x and I found this machine a good option for the price, and I really love it. Has a great display, a cool finish and a great gpu and cpu. I really recommend this machine... I have only 1 issue with then and it was the wireless broadcom driver that come with the machine, but you can fix it with the new version found in the asus Web page, so it really doesn't matter.
