        Comments about ASUS X75A-DS31 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

        Home use for this machine, mainly web surfing and e-mail. Fast computing power with the installed processor. Operates Windows 8 very well. Not much to complain about except the keyboard is rather scrunched together. Takes some getting used to. In addition, the touchpad "buttons" are too hard to depress. Makes dragging objects tricky. Overall, I'd give it an 8 out of 10 if scoring on that scale. You probably won't find a better laptop for this price.

          Here is what I like about the computer

          Nice sleek design
          Keyboard is OK
          Mouse, I'm using an external Mouse
          17" Screen is great , since I'm using it only in Office
