Excerpt: At first thought, I believed that touch screen would be great, but I have found it to be more frustrating than anything else. Then there is Windows 8! Trying to figure out how to navigate has been, at best, problematic. It took me several tries and a lot of effort to actually turn off my great, new laptop. Although having tabs are very useful, it has been very difficult to actually get them to show up so that you can actually use them.
Summary: I wanted a new laptop after my old refurbished one decided to die a few years ago, and this was my gift to me! It's the best thing I think I've ever bought computer wise and when I purchased it it was on sale by a hundred bucks! The only thing I didn't expect was the material the cover was made from, but I can easily live with that!
Summary: I've had this computer for almost a month now! Love how fast it starts up. Not really a fan of the windows 8 GUI, but for those who love open source software, 'classic shell' will return you to what's most familiar.
Excerpt: Bought this computer for my home use. I will use it for various tasks, but I wanted a higher-end machine so I could edit digital home videos. With the i7 processor, 8gb RAM (not 6 like the add lists), and a 4mb L3 Cache, it chews through the video editing FAST! Which is exactly what I wanted! So far so good, but learning Win 8.1 has been a SLOW process and I don't like it. I bought a $5 app that allows Win 8.1 to run just like Win 7 and it was definitely worth it!
Summary: Asus is Definitely the best computer brand out there. This computer is no exception to the quality of their products. This is the perfect balance of Performance and Price. I would Highly recommend this Laptop to anyone.
