      Comments about ASUS X501A-DH31 15.6" Notebook Computer (Pink):

      Screen and keyboard have been good. I bought this to replace a dead ASUS W3V laptop that was more versatile (I could write AND play Half-Life 2 on it and watch movies). For this computer, my main criteria for buying it was that I needed something lightweight and portable that I could use for my writing.I was initially settling for this one, because it has Windows 8, which was annoying on a cousin's computer (different brand). Her Windows 8 locked her out inexplicably, which a lot of people experienced. So far I've avoided that, and I find that the desktop portion of the OS is a lot like Windows 7. The Start Screen contains any programs you install, and I just move them around on the screen where I please. I no longer object to Windows 8.On THIS ASUS I've been able to use Scrivener (no Windows 8 hiccups), my main concern. I can also play some casual adventure games on it (Longest Journey that I downloaded from GOG), and the graphics were just fine. Haven't tried any AAA games, due to the lack of discrete graphics card, but I would prefer that on a deskptop anyway. If your use patterns are similar to my current ones, you'll like this. If you need an optical drive you will have to buy a portable one, but other than that, no problems.

          Love this notebook, it's neat, light and the color looks very classy. I'm not a big lover of windows 8 but its something getting used too. I also like the fast startup with this computer. It's really quick. The computer doesn't have a cd drive and I haven't missed it once. If you desperately need a cd drive you can get a lightweight external cd drive.
