      I use this comp as a school comp and a gaming comp. It obviously is overkill for my schoolwork. I really enjoy this computer. It plays the games I play (ddo, tera, tor) at full graphic settings with/out lag. I like that you get a keyboard mouse if you order it from B&H. Windows 8 did take some getting used to but i like it now. I checked never freezes but I've only had it for a few weeks. My setup is an HD tv and a monitor. Watch netflix or video files on tv while playing mmo on moniter. Fun stuff.

      I don't know how much of my trouble is with the Actual PC or the horrendously clunky Windows 8 but this thing is a serious disappointment. Everything worked straight out of the box, and B&H service was great, but ever since - only a day or two later - I'm having no end of trouble. The hard drive is partitioned to c: and d:, c: being for windows and d: for data, but all data is by default stored on c: so quickly filled up. Then had the fun of manually moving it all to d:. Apps do not download and install, for example I've been trying to install Skype since day one and it just won't work. Asus support doesn't seem to be very effective, and Microsoft appear to want to be paid for help. On top of all this, despite having 8gb ram and a 3ghz processor the stupid thing is slower than my old laptop. I suspect Windows is responsible for most of this but either way it's terrible that it just doesn't work as it should. Unfortunately I'm in the Caribbean so couldn't even return it if I were allowed to.

          Up and running two weeks now, no issues at all. Easy set up, fast, seems rock solid. Only thing to get used to in Windows 8, other than that I'm happy.

                      I use the computer for word processing, E-Mails and brousing the internet. Not a game player or picture filer.

                      Things that are great: It is fast.

                      Things that are not so great: The one shipped to me became defective outside of the 30 day timeframe to return it to B & H. The computer would shut off and on every 3 to 5 minutes. It would remaine off only 2 to 3 seconds each time and then back on. Problem repeated itself over and over. A very annoying problem. I informed ASUS and received an RMA. Shipped it at my expense to ASUS for repair (?). If it can be repaired they will fix it, otherwise, they may (?) ship me a "refurbished" computer in it's place. Awaiting ASUS response. Bye the bye, ASUS does NOT make refunds....

                      If you purchase an ASUS computer, I wish you good luck.

                            I use this PC primarily for Photo Editing in Photoshop Elements. It's got plenty of RAM, a pretty fast processor and a gob of hard disk memory. I've been using it for about 3 weeks and everything is good. Very simple setup. If you're new to Windows 8 the ASUS e-manual gives you enough of a jump start to use it without too much bother.

                              I ordered this computer on a Thursday afternoon and it arrived on Friday afternoon. Awesome! There is definitely a learning curve with Windows 8, but I'm making progress. The computer is great, but due to HD speed limitations, you won't see blazing speed in many of your daily tasks. I'm very pleased with B&H and the computer.

                                Very fast with MS Office, inexpensive, plenty of ram and storage. If you already have a good monitor, etc. this is a great deal. Everything you need to get work done in style, at a great price. Great service and fast, fair, shipping to PR from BH Photo. Bought it for the wife, wish I had one.
