Summary: Very good PC, have a good core I5 for a cheap Price, 4gb of ram is good, but you can increase to 8 gb if you want. The keyboard is confortable, touch pad response in perfect way, the screen have a good size and excelent definition quality, the battery life is more longer tan other laptops, the weight is light. The only problem is that not have a card warranty, so if oyu have to active this, you can't do it. If you want to buy a cheap and good laptop, buy this!
Summary: Had some initial problems due to outdated wireless drivers that didn't work with Windows 8. It made the wireless lose connection all the time. I had to manually update the driver from the ASUS website. Once I did that it has yet to drop the wireless. Also I updated to windows 8.1 and set it to boot to desktop instead of the Metro interface (those annoying tiles). Now it works pretty much just like Windows 7. As for the hardward this laptop is great.
Summary: The Asus is a great computer. This computer is super fast and has a nice big screen for veiwing anything the user would need. For the price you cannot do any better than this laptop. The running windows is the only negative with this laptop. Even though the screen is "touch screen" the Window application is diffulcult to navigate and understand.
Overall happy with my purchase once a few things got ironed out

Summary: My laptop came via ValueShop and had 8.1 pre-installed so I had the choice of the sticking with the Windows 7 interface if I wanted to without ever having to use the Home Screen.
