Summary: I procured this laptop for a computer course I was doing. But I must say, it has been more than a school laptop. The screen size makes it easy to watch movies. Bluray movies play without any lag. All Microsoft Office programs operate without having to wait for loading.
Best 17" laptop for around $500. Great Screen and keyboard!

Summary: Very quick to boot up and shut down or go into Hibernate/Sleep mode. Wakes up from Sleep mode VERY fast. Windows 8 has taken a little getting used to. This is the second ASUS laptop that I have owned.
Summary: Asus really dialed this one in. Its quiet, stable and has a great screen. The keyboard and touch mouse is really nice. It also has a built in web cam with a light or flash. It saw my router and printer without any updating. Plug an Play. I would highly recommend if you're home is all wireless.
Summary: I love my new lap top. It has so many apps on it and I love how easy it is to find everything. I wasn't sure if I was going to like it in the beginning but after the first week I was sure this was right for me.
