Summary: Now this is my first windows 8.1 computer, and my first Asus as well. Yes, it is made of aluminum-like plastic. But I can hardly consider that a complaint. For a computer its size, its pretty light, and feels sturdy enough. This laptop is fast, holds charge pretty well, and is visually appealing. Read the specs, it packs a wallop of features. I use it for business purposes, and recreation while traveling.
Summary: Excelente laptop, delgada, bastante rápida, buena tarjeta de video, lo necesario para aplicaciones que lo requieran y video juegos. Solo tuve problemas al actualizar a windows 8.1 ya que al parecer tenia algún tipo de incompatibilidad con las tarjetas de video (intel/nvidia). Excellent laptop, thin, pretty fast, good video card, necessary for applications that require it and video games.
Summary: been a great ultra portal with great gaming gpu and battery life. could care less about the touch screen but other then that a ssd is a highly recommend upgrade to round out this great laptop! I'm hoping they'll keep this recipe of great price, good battery life, fast & great gaming performance.
