Summary: The hardware and performance of the laptop are honestly top notch, especially considering the price. Windows 8 takes some getting used to as it is quite different than Windows 7 and its predecessors. The update to Windows 8.1 really helps for usability for most users.
Summary: Bought this to replace my old Toshiba laptop, poor thing was riddled with malware, viruses and who knows what else and finally just gave up! So I started my search, looking for something that I could not only run my business from, do my school work on, but also game in my free time.
Summary: I had an Asus laptop before and loved it - this one is no different. It does exactly what I want it to do. It's fast, the screen is clear and the keyboard is comfortable. I can't comment on the audio since I don't use it for that.
