Pros: Just to be clear this review is not of the item itself. I was really looking forward to get this laptop. It came extremely poor packaged. Single brown box with laptop in a plastic bag and 2 flimsy foam holders. The PS brick was thrown in the box on the side. The bow came in with a hole on the side. when I opened it I found that the hole was on the side where the PS adapter was tossed in. There were few dents on that side (screen hinge). Started a claim with Newegg. Wi...
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.
