The title says it all. You get good hardware for the money, but the nightmare was a holy nightmare. After unistalling all the "multi-gesture" features and software, it's at least usable. I can't recall if I ended up using a synaptic driver or default windows drivers after it was all said and done. It was for a customer, and I told her to return it to me if it was unusable. So far she has not. Maybe everybody is not as picky as me?

I use this laptop every day. it starts up really fast and it don't get hot like my last notebook . Asus makes a top quality product. it's easy to type on has a nice stay cool wrist rest the 17'' screen is easy to view great web cam quality for talking with friends and family on skype. still need to try it for gaming but im sure it will be just as good as my desk top.

over all a great buy no regrets but you may want to buy an extra battery as with any laptop or you will need to be near an outlet

I bought this for my kids, they love it so far. Seems to run smooth. Had to go thru a few updates and seems to get warm playing some games, but overall a nice computer.

It's a nice laptop at a good price, but Windows 8 is everything it shouldn't be. An entirely unintuitive operating system. I installed a start button, on a 7 emulator, which helps but doesn't fix it.
I would happily give the laptop itself 5 stars.

Awesome I would reccomend this. Very easy to use and I love the app style where everything is right there in front of you where it's quicker to get to the things you need to.

I have a 4 1/2 year old Dell laptop and I thought it was time to replace it with a newer laptop. I have had no problems whatsoever with my Dell in all that time. I fully expected and wanted to buy a new Dell with a 17 inch screen but the prices seemed a bit high. By the way I'm a "Make or buy American" guy and I have been in Austin, Texas where the Dell headquarters is/was(?). I made the minor mistake of asking one of our computer whizzes at work what he thought about Dells and he gave me that vague look and speech "Dells are OK" but then he said "I've heard a lot of good stuff about ASUS". So I looked up ASUS up on the internet and all I saw was an address in California...my search stopped there and I thought I was getting an American brokered (at least) computer. ASUS was cheaper because it's all foreign.
Epilogue:
-The DVD player skips and burps, even on brand new disks.
-Going to the Start screen interrupts or stops other functions.
-I'm not sure if the Instant On feature is giving me the good and refreshing benefits of a cold start.
-It just doesn't seem that much faster than my 4 1/2 year old Dell laptop.

I'm just kinda' surprised.
