Summary: We were looking for a computer for my son who loves Minecraft. My older HP wasn't cutting it because it "lagged" too much. He saved money and paid for this himself, so was looking for something somewhat reasonable. We didn't want to spend $1000+ on a true gaming computer, but wanted something good for Minecraft and schoolwork. He is very happy! No more lag. We are not fans of Windows 8 AT ALL, but I can't ding ASUS for that.
Summary: At the young age of near 60, my wife decided she wanted to further her education,so who am I to discourage her, so I started reading reviews about laptops and then went to my go to store (EBAY) to find what I wanted at the best price. When I found this unit I thought that I had found the goose that laid the golden egg, and have not been disappointed. If I ever need another computer I would look in the same place for the same brand.
Summary: Took awhile to get everything up & running but now we love it. So much better then our other one. Much,much faster. Had to purchase a 32gb flash for the back up which needed at least 16gb. Installing all our data was the most time consuming but once programs installed, very nice! I like Intel better then AMD processors so we are quite happy with this purchase!
