Summary: Very slow, not very responsive. I have bought 2 Asus laptops in the past and literally the older Windows 7 Asus is faster than this one. Save yourself a lot of stress and just get a different brand or spend an extra hundred bucks or so. It blue screened maybe once or twice, it's works about as quick as a slug, it's basically just my giant flash drive with a DVD player on it.

Summary: Asus Computer are Awesome at first I was kind of scared because my first Computer I bought was a Toshiba I had it for 4 years then it broke down on me and i was only use to all the top brand Computers like Dell are HP And Gateway.So when I went out to buy another Computer I came Across this Asus Computer and The Salesperson Told me about all the good things The Asus Computer Came with I was happy with this computer and bought it.
Summary: For one thing, the AMD Radeon HD 7340 video card uses system memory so the advertised 4 gigs of ram is half that. The BIOS is set so you can't boot from the CD if you wanted to escape the horrors of Windows 8 (I tried!!!) or run Linux. The hard drive is set so that roughly 3/5ths of it is unusable.
Summary: I bought this new at Fry Electronics about 2 months ago . Christmas Time 2013 NO REAL ISSUES NO REAL COMPLAINTS.GREAT PRODUCT SO FAR FOR ME. One exception it is a little slower and that's because its a duel processor and the new ones have the core i3, 5 ,7 processors which are super fast. but you'll be paying $1200 for a descent one of those. lucky me I pick up this model for only $250 Basically so far so good.
Summary: the good: Its light enough to carry around. I love the smart gestures especially since I don't use a mouse, so I can scroll and zoom in and out really easily. The touch pad is sensitive so all you need are light taps. The sound quality is pretty decent but there is a problem, written below. It has plenty of hard drive space and is fast enough for me. Screen size is great. It has a memory card reader.
Summary: Great laptop! I'm dual booting Windows with Linux and it's going well. BOOTLOADER INFO: There have been many complaints for this model that due to ASUS' Windows 8 Fast Boot integration, the boot loader is not accessible. This is not true. ASUS' website offers instructions on how to boot into the BIOS that do work.
