          I bought this computer for my son for college. He is getting used to the windows 8.1. He loves the touch screen capability with this. He also uses it for playing games and says that it works great for this also. Hopefully, he will concentrate on homework more than playing games.

            Comments about ASUS VivoBook V551LA-DS71T 15.6" Multi-Touch Notebook Computer (Silver):

            Faced with 3 aging computers equipped with Windows XP, I wanted to replace them not with 3 separate computers but with a single unit capable of performing all the tasks of each. That meant running both business apps as well as photo imaging apps. Here is where B&H's "compare" feature online became indispensable. In my price range, I got 8GB RAM, an Intel 1.8 GHz i7 processor and a 750GB HD. With the addition of a separate Asus HDMI monitor to expand various windows all at once, I am able to do everything I did before, free up some electric outlets and perform everything I need to do but faster. The only downside is that Windows 8 does not run older versions of some very common software which means you will have to spend some money for upgraded versions.

              This is notebook is my primary workstation. I use it mostly for regular document processing, web browsing, streaming videos. However, I have also installed an Ubuntu 64-bit VM and plan to possibly install Adobe Creative Suite. This notebook looks slick and works without a hitch. Battery life has been good (~5 hours?). I am very happy with this system so far. The only possible downside, which I was aware of before my purchase, is its weight.

                  The best way to evaluate a company is by their service. B&H proved to be very dependable and provided me with awesome service. As a first time customer, I'm very satisfied with their service. I received my computer, as promised. Further, when I needed technical help determining if the product contained the memory promised, I was also very satisfied. Their customer service department was very attentive. Also, the tech support representative was very helpful too. A company is as good as their service. B&H is a great company!!
                  PS: As a manager of a customer service department, I understand how challenging it is provide high quality service. B&H's managers should also get credit for their team's great work. Kudos to the team!!

                        First off, B&H was great. The B&H website was great for helping me narrow down the million laptop choices. I used the compare function and filters to help me choose. And I really like the Asus VivoBook just two things that i wish i knew beforehand. 1. The graphics adapter does not let you resize or change the screen resolution so the fonts and everything are a little large for my tastes. 2. You must buy a separate DVD software package. I learned afterwards that Windows8 removed the Media Player functionality so you either buy your own software or have to download some freeware. Nothing major and may not have affected my decision just some items i wish i knew about.
