This Asus laptop has to be one of the better valued computers on Amazon. I spent a lot of time looking at the different laptops at various price points and I think that this is one of the more cost-efficient laptops considering the internals that this computer comes with. That being said however, there are a couple flaws with this laptop that other reviewers have pointed out, such as a not-so-perfect keyboard and issues like the computer randomly shutting down.

But first, let's talk about why I think this is a good value. This is one of the few laptops at this price point to contain a 3rd generation i5 processor, which can be considered one of the faster laptop processors as of right now. It's speedy enough to run pretty much anything you throw at it. Graphics-wise, this laptop comes with the standard Intel HD 4000, which isn't a great graphics card, but it's not as bad as most people make it out to be either. Intel has had a history of terrible integrated graphics cards, but the Intel HD 4000 is decent enough to run all low end games, and even more graphically-intensive games at a low setting. All in all, this laptop has enough power to satisfy the average user. If you're a power user, you probably know what you need and wouldn't be reading this review.

It also comes with 4GB of ram. If that's not enough for you, it's easy to buy extra memory for an upgrade. For the tinkerers here, the computer comes with 2 slots, and only one is used, so if you want to upgrade it, all you need to buy is another 4GB stick. This upgrade is relatively simple-two screws under the laptop and you simply slide off the cover and insert your new stick of RAM.

Another great thing about this laptop is the battery life.

This is a good laptop for the price, and is all-rounded, good enough for everything. The graphics and sound is not excellent, but it is very reasonable for most users. It is light enough for the price/processor combination, and your can just upgrade the RAM yourself.

I had a faulty laptop at first. The first laptop that came crashes often. It hanged the first day it arrived when I was setting up the computer for the first time. I thought it may be Windows 8's problem and tried to resolve it by factory resetting it / partitioning the drives dual boot it. Nothing worked and the crashes made me suspect there was something wrong with the hardware. I contacted Amazon and they offered to exchange the laptop. The new one is perfectly fine.

1. The touch and feel of the laptop is really nice
2. The weight is quite light for an i5 processor laptop
3. Price was quite low when I bought it (490 after tax and a 10% discount coupon, I think the price went up recently)
4. Windows 8 that came with it is pretty clean. Easy to use after some time spent exploring
5. There is a 1 year accidental damage protecting which covers things like spills and drops, which is useful for many people.

1. Don't like the touchpad at all - the touchpad is really sensitive and moves when you are typing
2. The touchpad driver seems to have something wrong with it. It turns off by itself sometimes without warning. Your multitouch and scrolling will fail when that happens.
3. It is quite hard to change to a different OS because of the motherboard's secureboot configuration. If you are thinking of dualbooting or downgrading to windows 7, you will have to do some googling own your own
4. Didn't really like ASUS' bloatware

My review consists of reviewing the Asus Laptop + Windows 8.

This laptop plays a dual role in my household, it's used daily for normal tasks such as web use & office documents and will be used as a Windows OS + Windows Phone OS development laptop.

Plastic construction, nothing spectacular.
- Lid isn't easily opened with 1 hand however this may change in the future when the hinge loosens up a bit.
- Another reviewer complained about the mouse/trackpad, a few days of use is needed to break it in so your finger glides on the surface vs. jumps due to the lack of oils when new.
- As a MacBook gesture power user, I wanted to see similar functionality in Windows 8 laptops that don't have touch-screens. This device supports basic Windows 8 trackpad gestures. E.g. swipe in from right to left brings up charms, left to right switches between apps. It would be nice to have many more gesture to be really fast; not sure if this is an Asus trackpad limitation of if Windows 8 currently doesn't support more advanced multi-finger gestures.
- The screen is decent on this laptop but some text with the Windows 8 interface is not crisp (ClearType is on).
- Quick boot time especially if you have the Asus boot in performance mode.

Windows 8:
I personally am a fan of Windows 8's UI/UX but I was able to see first hand how challenging this new interface will be for non-techie users. Others in my household have quite a difficult time understanding the new user experience and utilizing it, and often choose one of our iPads vs. this Windows 8 laptop. Perhaps Microsoft will release some improvements soon, but for now I only recommend Windows 8 to techies.
