Summary: This is a good laptop for the money. Stylish design and good hardware. I advise only to increase the RAM. I increased to 8GB and now I have 12GB! Although it is written that can be extended to 4GB that is not true and well established one 8GB card. Just increase the overall system performance. And I advise you to upgrade to Windows 8.1 this is more better os and back the Start button!
Summary: I sent this computer back three times for repair. The problem was not fixed the first two times and now this third time they have had the computer for over a week and no one, and I mean no one including supervisors has an update for me. Their service is horrible. I really suggest avoiding Asus and buying another brand.
Pros: size, hard drives, screen
Cons: touchpad sucks! It is extremely loud and is impossible to use around other people with out driving them nuts. It makes a loud clicking sound when pressed on.
Asus laptop is responsive, but wireless on this is lacking.

I updated the drivers when it was still on windows 8, and I would get limited connectivity, or when I would get connected it would last for about a minute and then just stop working all together. So I plugged the laptop into the ethernet cable and did all of the windows updates, and other ...
