            Comments about ASUS R510DP-FH11 15.6" Notebook Computer (Dark Gray):

            When it first became available I bought a Google Nexus 7 manufactured by Asus and was impressed by its design and performance. When it became time now to replace my 7 year notebook computer Asus came to mind and I bought the model R510D. Another incentive was Windows 8.1 which I like very much.
            If you are asking yourself do apps have any business being on a PC just download "World Astro Clock". You may come to the conclusion that while the usefulness of apps on a PC is often different from a tablet, a screen just cannot be too big when it comes to visual impact.
            By now I had the computer for a couple of weeks and I am not disappointed. Compared to my old computer it is very fast. The design is functional and of meticulous execution. A finely textured, solid aluminum skin is bonded to the working surface, which is pleasing to the touch and to look at.
            I use my computer for all kinds of productivity tasks, surfing the internet and for imaging. ImageJ and Photoshop Elements 11 are my favorite programs. To open an image in PSE 11 when it is already running in the background takes just one second. To open it initially takes 8 seconds but when closed and reopened this is reduced to 4 seconds. This is all the speed I will ever need. Especially for imaging I like the higher-than-usual screen resolution of 1920 x 1080. The screen has a matte finish which minimizes specular reflections. But obviously this type is not suitable as a touch screen. The LED illumination is brighter than anything I have owned in the past and the whites appear notably neutral.
            The conversion from Windows 8 to 8.1 and prior update took 8 hours, including a false start in the updating process. As has been suggested elsewhere in these reviews, you will not do it in less than 7 hours. I filled the time reading David Pogue's "Windows 8.1" a nice mixture of well organized, solid information and fluid style. At 928 pages you won't be able to read it from cover to cover in that span of time but you get a solid head start and a well indexed reference manual that has not let me down yet.
            Any gripes? none as far the technolgy of the computer is concerned. However, to register the computer on the Asus website you have to answer many questions that may be of value to the marketing division but have little to do with the warrantee. If anybody takes an interest in my advanced age I shall be flattered to no end but please ask me straightforwardly instead of implying that this is a condition to validate the warrantee. Even so, I wish Asus well; they sell a fine product at a modest price.

                  So far the laptop works great. The only down side for me is windows 8 and it does not have a detachable battery pack. The battery is internal. If you need a new battery you will either have to take the unit apart or send back to ASUS to replace. You can upgrade to windows 8.1 which is a free upgrade that sort of makes it usable like win 7.

                  Very good display resolution and crispness
                  It came with Windows 8. It was a bit confusing how to upgrade to 8.1 (needed first to download over 70 upgrades and then use the Windows Store). Worked fine afterwards. Can't wait for Windows 9...

                        Comments about ASUS R510DP-FH11 15.6" Notebook Computer (Dark Gray):

                        This ASUS replaced an HP laptop with a bad video card. My laptop is my primary computer, not just for traveling. I needed a fully equipped machine with DVD/CD drive, Bluetooth a quad core processor and at least 6 GB of ram. I had not shopped laptops in some time and did not realize how difficult it was to find machines with DVD/CD burners or Bluetooth. At least at a reasonable price. I asked the IT tech at work to look over the specs on the ASUS and also what he knew about the brand. He said it looked like a well equipped machine for the price. He also said he knew several people with ASUS laptops and they were good machines. This laptop gave me everything I was looking for and 8 GB ram! I don't buy a new computer every year so I wanted a laptop that would keep pace for a long time. I have only had the laptop for a couple of weeks but so far I am very pleased. I am adjusting to windows 8 but learning as I explore. The ASUS warranty which includes 1 year damage coverage is great. That tells me they stand behind their product. Also, 1 year of cloud storage free is something I did not see offered with other machines. I did some research on ASUS and apparently they have been making pc components for other top brands for years! It makes sense that they would make a solid machine at a good price point. I am not a gamer but I use my laptop for work and I do a lot of picture, video and music projects. Very happy with my pc and purchase experience.
