Pros: It was fast 3 years ago and it still is. You really need to tone down the graphics settings in newer games in order to get playable framerates. i7 gives great multi tasking as does my upgrade to 16gb of ram. After building a desktop and getting used to SSD performance, this felt impossibly slow. ...
Cons: Battery life is un-exceptional. I have 2 hour 40 minute classes a few nights per week and this thing barely makes it through, even on balanced/battery saver. By today's standards it's very bulky and heavy which is why i'm looking to upgrade
Summary: I actually removed the two terabyte drives and installed an SSD and another smaller drive. This machine flies with the SSD. Also, I'm running Windows 10 preview on this now. Runs great. No complaints now that the stupid metro interface isn't there by default and the start menu is a start menu again.
Pros: This was the best deal I could find for a powerful mobile workstation with this size of screen and full keyboard including 10-key. I think I actually got this via Newegg Flash and saved an extra $60 or something on it-- gotta love that. ASUS has always made good products, and I've always been ple...
Cons: Didn't actually come pre-installed with Windows 8. Came with a weird note saying I had to download it or something, if I recall. This isn't a big con for me, though, because I have archived copies of all the versions of Windows. For someone with less tech experience, though, this would be a con. ...
Summary: Exactly what I wanted for speed, and gaming. GREAT PRICE. only negative, if you play demanding games, can feel the heat built up quickly, don't know how much it would take to do damage. Have been conservative with my gaming time.
Summary: the laptop is ridiculous. 8 gigs of ram makes the thing run so smooth not to mention the 2 gigs on the nvidia graphics card. game are incredibly smooth and the resolution on the screen is crisp. the mini sub kicks like a champ, it compares to listening to music on a small boom-box.
Summary: I've had this computer for a few days now, and so far everything is perfect. The construction is second to none, and absolutely nothing feels cheap. It's blazing fast, the specifications are amazing. In addition, the seller replaced one of the HDDs with a 500GB SSD for me.
Summary: I usually wouldn't write a review, but in this case I feel it's a necessity. I literally can't find anything wrong with this laptop. It's more powerful than most desktop computers. It sounds great, performers just as good, and the only let down (I guess) would be that it comes with Windows 8.
Summary: i researched several brands and the 15in Asus too, and after a failed attempt to get a 15in went with the 17in this laptop fit all of my needs, large enough to do any task but portable if needed.
Summary: Well, first of all I would like to say that English is not my first language, so excuse me if I have some grammatical mistakes. I hope you understand me! The main reason why I bought this PC is for gaming. I just wanted to play every game, at least in low graphics, but I wanted to play them all.
Summary: My friend at work recommended ASUS since he loves his ASUS laptop. He is a gamer so it is great for the graphics. I wanted a great quality laptop that would provide fast speed and have all the great high tech features. It is wonderful and worth every penny.
