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. Check for some downloadable utilities to help get your "Start" button back and you'll warm up to Windows 8 much more easily.
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.
