Summary: Amazing Laptop. Excellent for gaming and anything else you need to do. Pros: i7-4700HQ CPU, very capable of most tasks All USB 3.0 ports Blu-Ray player backlit keyboard Cons: the 256GB SSD is split into two 128GB platters, had to swap for a single 1TB platter in order to store all my game files.
Summary: Where do I start? I love ASUS, and after Dell had left me with a terrible taste in my mouth, I figured it would be safe to get another gaming laptop, like I had with a previous one. Super excited and finally at a point where I can splurge on myself (now that I had a job), I happily purchased this laptop in hopes to play all my Sims 3/4, Spore, and what other games I have.
Powerful machine, but don't expect to listen to music

Summary: The ASUS computer is fantastic. I considered replacing the Dell Desktop that I owned since 2007 (in technology terms, it was ancient). Finally, the motherboard found peace and passed away. Decision made. I researched and read reviews about different gaming compatible laptops. For the hardware contained inside this unit, the price was decent. Overall experience with this unit has been positive. Only downside is the operating system. Windows 8.1.
Summary: With my old laptop, my morning started by pressing the power button, then off to get a glass of water, then back to log in, then take to dog out, then back to the laptop and MAYBE it would be ready. God forbid it should be asleep when a client called with an urgent request. This beast is fast, fast, fast at everything she does. These specs should take me for some years to come. The bad news is I dropped her once. The good news is she is so rugged nothing broke.
