Summary: The touch screen is amazingly good. It's the best of both worlds, you can use touch screen to do video chat with family and photo viewing. And can also use it as hard code programming laptop with its amazing specs. Super happy that i bought this one.

Summary: So far so good. I love system 8- and the touch screen on this computer just makes it so easy. I use this for my online school work. It is light weight, the keyboard is really well set up-- keys have a good feel. I haven't had a chance to use all of the features just yet, but it has already made my life quite a bit easier. It boots up quickly and plays dvds and cds really well. I also use music writing software (Musescore), and that works really well on this too.
Summary: I was searching for a new laptop for a few weeks for school(home use too). I was a little weary of purchasing a computer online without actually seeing it in person yet, but after seeing the hardware(internal and external)I gave it a shot, could have returned it if something was wrong. Folks, I gotta tell ya, for the price of only $625ish this machine has no equal. Asus already has a reputation for being a solid laptop..
Summary: Really impressed with amazons service. Happy that they delivered it before the time. Its been just two day since ive used the laptop and im sold on it. Good boot-up speed and good build quality. lets see its performance over the next few months...
Summary: I will keep this short and sweet. I looked for over a month for a laptop with all the qualities I wanted and this one fits them all.I wanted a touch screen so I could learn and use all the windows 8 functions. I am not techy but am willing to learn. Since it is hard to get used to windows 8 I immediately went to you tube and watched several videos going through the various functions of windows 8 and the touch screen.
Summary: Daughter using it for college and took to Windows 8 fairly easily. Computer is light weight, holds a charge about average, comes with a DVD drive(fairly uncommon for a slimmer unit), and has a bright and responsive touch screen. Only issues thus far are related to Window 8 and not an ASUS issue.
