4.0 out of 5 stars Not a complete flat panel
The computer works fine and is really nice to have as an auxiliary computer that I use in the morning before going to my downstairs office. I used the upgrade time from Windows to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $14.95. That was a definite plus. The only issue that I have with the unit is that the front bezel on the monitor sticks out about 0.25 inches. It is a dust...

2.0 out of 5 stars had to change my rating
I first gave it 5 stars since it worked great for some months. But now, after 6 months the touchscreen suddenly stopped working. I contacted ASUS and they directed me to do a restore. Well, it didn't work. Not only the touchscreen still won't work, but now i lost all the programs I had installed so the solution is even worse.

The computer works fine and is really nice to have as an auxiliary computer that I use in the morning before going to my downstairs office. I used the upgrade time from Windows to upgrade to Windows 8 Pro for $14.95. That was a definite plus. The only issue that I have with the unit is that the front bezel on the monitor sticks out about 0.25 inches. It is a dust collector and also keeps you from swiping the screen from left to right and top to bottom, etc. without sticking your finger tip into the side of the bezel. It often takes several swipes before you connect properly to the screen. I have a 27 inch Acer touch screen monitor that is flush on the front and swiping is a breeze. Perhaps it is because this is the older style and therefore priced less, but they lost a star because of the design. I can hook the Acer up to a laptop and put the laptop behind or off to the side and then use the monitor better than the all-in-one. Of course the Acer monitor cost as much as the Asus all-in-one touch. This is an Asus touch, be very careful when you go to buy one of these that it is the actual touch ET2411IUTI model. The other models are ET2411XXXX models and do not have touch screens.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love it so far, May 9, 2013

This review is from: ASUS ET2411IUTI-B002C 23.6-Inch Desktop (Personal Computers)
A bit of background on myself:

I am a graphic designer who also has a hobby of music production. Therefore, the programs I use are heavy hitters including the Adobe Creative Suite and the CPU and Memory consuming Audio Software that many other music producers use such as Pro-Tools and ImageLine's FL Studio. I also happen to be pretty computer savvy, more so than the average bear, and know quite a bit about the ins and outs of both Hardware and Software aspects of computers.

First Impressions:
This is a pretty good looking computer and it is definitely well built. Pictures don't really exemplify ASUS's craftsmanship, especially if you take a good look at the backside of the device; it is a rock solid and highly functional. However, there are several hardware issues that I've had (all were aesthetics related). For starters, on the left side there is a hidden door that exposes various device inputs such as eSata and USB3. This is great but I find it a bit annoying that you have to keep the door open in order to have anything plugged in. Thus, you have a fragile piece of the hardware exposed and in the way to some extent. This isn't a huge issue just a minor annoyance. Secondly, the back side device input ports have an inner casing that seems to be a bit overlooked in comparison to the rest of the Computer's craftsmanship; after a few uses of one of the USB ports on the back side, the inner casing is beginning to slip out any time that I pull that specific USB cord out and can only be put back in WITH a USB device/cord (this is a bigger problem but still not a deal breaker as it works perfectly fine beyond that fact). Lastly, The black frame of the Computer is NOT FLUSH with the screen. Thus, there is a bit of an elevation/gap between the screen and the frame that measures out to be a little over 1/4 of an inch. This is mainly a problem because I installed Windows 8 in which has gestures that require side swiping; the elevated frame makes these gestures quite hard to accomplish although not impossible after a little practice.

First Run:
When I first ran the computer it was smooth, responsive, and everything I expected from it performance wise. It initially had Windows 7 installed which I promptly wiped clean in order to install Windows 8. Doing this was a nightmare at first but it wasn't Window's nor ASUS's fault. After troubleshooting for nearly 12 hours straight I found out that INTEL had a firmware update that so happened to corrupt the system. After reinstalling/refreshing dozens of times and installing a proper update to sidestep the problem (acquired from INTEL's website) I finally got the machine up and running and haven't had a problem since. Windows 8 runs GREAT on the machine except for the small, aforementioned, caveat of the frame elevation hindering the gestures.

Performance:
With that said, this PC is definitely enough for the great majority of users. I can have Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, 2 web browsers, and various other apps open at all times and it doesn't skip a beat. It's easy to use, doesn't overheat, shuts down, restarts, and powers up REALLY quickly (I'd dare say less than 20 seconds for each scenario). It has really solid wireless capabilities as well.

Peripherals:
The mouse and keyboard that come with the computer are pretty good. Nothing extraordinary, but definitely suits my needs even as a designer. They are both wireless devices. The only downside is that the mouse is a battery hog so expect to change the battery quite often. Also, they are both dust collectors so they needs a fair amount of attention to keep clean. The Computer also comes with an external battery that is highly portable and doesn't run hot. It's actually one of the better batteries I've seen.

Miscellaneous:
Although the computer is quite heavy, over 20lbs, it can still be moved around the house fairly easily as it's only wire is from the external battery.
Also, I'm not sure about the sound quality as I immediately set up my own speakers including a Microphone Pre-Amp all for my music production stuff so I can't really comment in that area of the computer. The Webcam is not too shabby as well.
One of my favorite things about the computer is the ventilation. It stays cool for long periods of time; as I'm writing this, I would have had my computer on for at least 3 days straight and the whole computer is cool to the touch (even the external battery is barely warm.) I can keep the computer on for over a week and not see a problem. However, I still shut it down at least once a week for at least 8 hours (right before I go to sleep) just to ensure that I'm not over working it.

Final Thoughts:
All in all I like the computer. It has its pros and cons but it's serving its purpose and it does it quite well. If you want to use windows 7 then its probably better suited for you. However, Windows 8 users can run into frustrations simply because of the gestures and the elevated frame. ASUS makes amazing products and I think I'll be sticking with them for a very long time (I have a secondary monitor that is connected to this Computer and it is also an ASUS product).

All in all, it might be pricey to some, but given its size and overall quality, its hard to justify getting any lower end devices that are NOT ASUS based on price alone. I've used Dell, Lenovo (which makes great PCS), HP, ACER and so on. So far ASUS and Lenovo are my favorites. For Desktop computers Its a toss up between the two but for Laptops, hands-down I have to go with ASUS. This is just my humble and honest opinion.

If you read all of that then I hope it helps. Even if you don't buy this specific computer, at the moment, I'd have to recommend sticking with ASUS and Lenovo products as mentioned above. If anything else comes up I'll update this review. Until them, happy shopping! :)
