This thing uses a fastboot method that works very well. Once you get everything patched up, add Stardock's Start8 ($10) to compensate for Windows 8 issues, and replace the crappy wifi adapter with something like the Intel Centrino 6235 (available on Amazon for $22), you've gone from a nice laptop to a great laptop. I also added 4 Gb of RAM to mine but it really won't be necessary for a lot of people.

This laptop boots very quickly. The screen is very clear. The I5 processor should be plenty for almost anyone. If this has a weak spot, it's the Intel HD 4000 integrated graphics. There is an AMD A10 version of this laptop that would be better for gaming. While the I5 is a better processor, the A10 has better graphics.

Back to the wifi adapter - I couldn't get any better than 72 mbps with the stock wifi adapter. So, for $22 I ordered the Intel 6235 wifi adapter. This upped my connections to 300 mbps and added Bluetooth 4.0 as well. To replace the adapter took about 5 minutes. Asus has made it very simple to access the hard drive, memory, and the wifi adapter - two screws and a slight pull forward is all it takes. Everything is accessible by removing the one panel. One last tip - if you do this, download the drivers from Intel before you swap out the adapters.

Overall, I'm very pleased with my Asus K55A laptop.

I really like this computer. It didn't have lots of useless marketing stuff pre-loaded. Set up was almost effortless. Mouse pad takes a little getting used to but it works well. I'm new to Windows 8 but with a little effort became fluent with it. I would highly recommend this laptop.

Verified Purchase
I bought this laptop used from a seller on Amazon about four months ago, and it has well exceeded my expectations. In fact, this laptop has replaced my aging desktop altogether, even before I added another RAM stick for a total of 8 GB.

Pros:
The Intel i5-3230M processor (2.60 GHz) is extremely quick, compared to my desktop's Core 2 Quad (2.67 GHz) and my older laptop's Core 2 Duo (2.33 GHz). Boot-up time from power-off is in a matter of a couple minutes at most even now, and I've never experienced hang-up problems as I may have on my older computers. The processor is also fast and powerful enough to handle multiple programs running at once - even running two games may not hinder performance much. Altogether, the processor is probably my favorite part of the laptop.

Also, you may add two 4 GB RAM sticks maximum, more than most people would need ever. 8 GB RAM has significantly increased the speed of programs running, as compared to the previous 4 I had, though 4 GB is still plenty and quick.

The laptop is well designed overall; I like its aesthetics and that it includes a number pad and the six keys (Home, End, Delete, Insert, Page Up, Page Down), although Insert is the Fn key for Delete. Nonetheless, the keyboard feels good and is full featured.

Cons:
This laptop variant does not come with a dedicated GPU, so you'll be stuck with the Intel HD 4000, the on-board GPU for the processor. Although it can handle many games, it probably will do poorly on extremely detailed games. I successfully played Bioshock Infinite with minor problems, but I had to tone down the graphics quality enough to get a steady frame rate.
