    Worked beautifully, right ou of the box. I use it mainly for photo editing and the 8 gig coupled with the I7 chip really helps the Adobe software. My files are big (36 meg, D800), so the power is appreciated. I enjoy the quick start technology, up and running in a second or so. Great value for the price, I have now a new screen from ASUS (24 in), fully functional for improved photo editing, a great combination.. A great new toy, before Christmas...

    Purchased ASUS on reputation, using ASUS motherboards for desktop custom builds for years...great product. Laptop not so great. Touchpad failed out of the box, battery DOA a month later, constant blue screens of death. Accidents happen, so was not a problem....until I found out that ASUS won't back their product and demanded that I put up cash for a warranty repair! Been wrangling with them for two months with no luck to get unit repaired. Just want to get rid of this paperweight and get a real laptop. BUYER BEWARE!

      Very powerful machine used for programming and virtual environments. With a little configuration this machine can become a great alternative to a desktop. The only real issue i've had with this machine is the lack of flexibility within the BIOS and all the bloatware that ASUS installs that slows the machine down.

        As usual ASUS is synonymous of quality. A laptop with a Quad Core i7 and 8 GB of RAM, for less than $ , Windows 7 Professional, you just need to unpack and use it! Great for graphic design and travel.

        i use it for gaming and school, but its a good laptop for the price, the touch pads mouse click is like on the same level other than like buttons poping up on most laptop mouse pads, the screen is great as well. i would recomend this to my friends. the keyboard is a bit squashed and close together so you might hit another button instead of the right one, but its still good. the battery life for maximum use is around 2-3 hours.
