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. The first is a F3JP that I bought in 2006 and all I've had to replace was the Battery and CPU cooling fan, and it still works perfect.. I am VERY impressed with the build quality and durability of ASUS brand Laptops. I love that this 17" has the tactile number pad on it.
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. The key board is different than I have had before, this one has soft keys that are a nicer feel when pushing them. Not sure how to describe it but I love the keyboard. I would recommend this laptop to any of my friends or family.
