      First of all, GREAT Computer & Service from B&H.

      - The computer is awesome, specs are unmatchable for the price. I ordered an Acer before this and canceled it before it shipped! :).

      The computer looks awesome, big 17", i5, 8GB, 750.
      The reason i wanted to review this was because it was free shipping and no tax. I wish everything was this easy. It shipped thursday arrived here friday. 2 Day shipping, felt like a one day.

      The only thing that i wasn't happy about was windows 8. However, it isn't that bad. I bought this laptop for family use (internet, skype, and movies). I think i can get used to windows 8, just takes time.

      Thank you B&H, i will purchase future electronics fom here.

      I primarily use the computer for browsing, email and occasional on-line viewing.
      Besides the insipid design of Windows 8 which is included, the computer has an ongoing tendency to freeze and, as disconcerting, a constant battle with pop-up menus. I'm assuming the pop-ups are meant to facilitate browsing but it is maddening and frustrating.
      I wou;ld be hard pressed to recommewnd this computer to anyone except, perhaps, those I don't like.

              This is perfect for everyday use, its lightweight, battery life is great. Plenty of horsepower for those harder tasks. You cannot beat the price, geat communications during the purchase process and speedy shipping.
              The only that was a little tough was finding a bag that fit, I found one at the jungle.

                So far I'm very happy with this purchase. The only problems I see on it is that the speaker is located on the bottom of the laptop, what makes the sound quality come out very poor; I also thought the programs would run faster... It is good enough but expected more of it; Battery time is not good.
                Another thing is that I personally hate Windows 8.

                What I really like is that it does not get hot and noise level is imperceptible; Fast boot and resume speeds; Relatively lightweight for it's size (17" screen); Nice clean design.

                              The computer is GREAT. Boots up fast and connects right away. I'm still getting use to Windows 8 but so far I like it. It's just different and for an "old Horse" like me it takes a little longer. But my kids are great in helping me. I love the big screen great for viewing movies. This computer should last me many years.

                              I am a part time photographer and run lightroom, photoshop and indesign quite often. The computer handles it well. I like the 17" screen even though I take it with me occasionally, anything else just seems too small for editing pictures.

                              One downfall that caught me off guard is no "light" to let you know if num lock or caps lock is on. Otherwise I love the mat black finish, my last laptop had a glossy finish, this is so much better!

                              Also, windows 8 has not been that bad for me, just took a couple days to get used to it. I wasn't sure about the switch (especially not having a touch screen), but it works well.

                                    This laptop was purchased for use by my daughter as she enters college. She has been satisfied with the equipment capability before starting college. My son-in-law that recommended this laptop, over a competitor that I was investigating, was impressed after he tested the laptop. We have yet to find any negatives for the laptop.

                                        This laptop is big and fast. I use it a lot online and with pix and It works great. I do have trouble negotiating through Windows 8 and may go back to 7.

                                            I bought this lap top to use it mainly with SolidWorks, I,m pleased with it and pleased with the price where I got instant savings.
                                            Windows 8 seemed hard at begging but in few days I was rolling...
                                            I recommend this laptop, by the way ASUS IS GREAT

                                              We bought the ASUS as a replacement for our desktop. We are not powerusers or gamers. The laptop will mostly be used for email,browsing, office, and 3D modeling with Sketchup. Laptop is as advertised, setup is quick and easy, battery life is good, large screen is helpful as a desktop replacement. Only gripe I have sofar is number of USB ports, it has 3, probably needs 2 more. Oh yeah,it comes with Window's 8 - which sucks, especially if youdon't have a touch screen. I always boot with the desktop comingup.

                                              I have no real complaints and have only owned the unit for about a month as a backup secondary pc and for work.
                                              Like everyone, W 8 is hard to grasp, I wish it had a bottom line home eddition office software, and using my mp3 player is a little quircky.
                                              However, start up, speed, recognizing my wireless/printer, fit / finish, and display, all make this laptop 5 star worthy. Hope all is the same a year from now.

                                                  I primarily use the computer for browsing, email and occasional on-line viewing.
                                                  Besides the insipid design of Windows 8 which is included, the computer has an ongoing tendency to freeze and, as disconcerting, a constant battle with pop-up menus. I'm assuming the pop-ups are meant to facilitate browsing but it is maddening and frustrating.
                                                  I wou;ld be hard pressed to recommewnd this computer to anyone except, perhaps, those I don't like.

                                                  Use this computer for just about everything but gaming. It is very fast and easy to use (there is a bit of a learning curve w/Windows 8). Only complaint would be about every 3 minutes it makes a brief noise like the DVD drive is turning on/off. It does not affect performance, just a little annoying.

                                                    Only thing I did not get that I thought I was, was a backlit keyboard, I read the description wrong but it was a bit confusing.
