Summary: It is a great laptop but, I had to send it back because the external speaker did not work. The plug for the external speaker was messed up and the mini plug would not click in to make the speaker work also more ram would've made it a better package.
Summary: First time boot up with Windows 8 was pretty scary. I've been running Linux exclusively for so long now I don't even bother with dual boot. I got this machine from Microcenter as an openbox deal. I'm guessing it was returned because of the touchpad.
Great computer, fast computer with a few things I didn't like
15 May 2013
Summary: This is a super fast computer for the price. The CPU is really fast. The memory was a bit small for a computer as capable as this one - but for not too much I just bought a memory upgrade to 8GB and it was a simple install.
Summary: Love this laptop. My only complaint is the "mouse" area. It is actually a little too wide in my opinion. My wrists or sleeves often click or move the curser unintentionally. Other than that this laptop is amazing. I play all the Sims 3 and expansion pack games with no problems.
Summary: First, I am a little biased because I love Asus laptops. I had to replace my last Asus because my work software required a faster processor. This is my second day and I have only noticed one problem and have two additional negative opinions. The Problem The speakers are poppy.
Summary: At least until ASUS/INTEL get their acts together. I used this thing for a couple of months with Win 7 and it's the first time I have been overly pleased with a laptop. There always seems to be something that isn't quite right with a new laptop... this one was the exception and I was very pleased.
Summary: Have had this laptop for a few months now and I am really impressed. Has a Good sturdy build and beautiful sleek design. The graphics card is powerful enough to play most games on high settings such as modern warefare 3 and assasins creed 3 but only on laptop screen.
Summary: Background: I purchased this computer six months ago at the beginning of the fall semester of college. I noticed there was several lengthy reviews from people, and decided to wait six months to give a in-depth review on this product for those that are considering buying it.
Summary: The screen is pretty good, but not as good as Samsung's or Apple's. The backlit keyboard is very useful. The worst thing about this computer is sometimes it becomes very sluggish for no apparent reason.
