This Freelance Designer Loves It!
on February 18, 2015
Now I've been using this laptop for full time work for over a year. Still running strong- handled the Windows 10 upgrade and 3 other software upgrades with no problems. I travel with it on occasion and it's pretty heavy for carrying after a while, but I don't do that often. I notice that it's been discontinued. Just out of date?
I've been using this laptop just about 6 weeks short of a year. More extensively (8 hours a day, 5 days a week) for the past 3 months. I use Classic Shell, which makes Win 8 a breeze. I also use a secondary monitor from Asus and I've also supplemented my setup with a subscription to Microsoft Office. Mostly I use Office, CorelDraw and Adobe CS on it and I couldn't be happier. None of those bothersome crashes that are supposed to happen so often with graphic software on PCs. I'm one of those freak graphic designers who works on a PC rather than Apple.
The computer is fast, the graphics are sufficient to my needs, and it's light and easily portable. I'd like to get a travel monitor now that I'm used to the two monitor set up so I can work away from home without sacrificing any efficiency. Which is what I was window (ha! Window!) shopping for when I decided to write this review.
I have a mouse, keyboard, Wacom tablet, speakers, and the extra monitors all hooked up externally to this little laptop and it's a tank, I'm telling you. I also bought the 3 year accidental insurance policy for this item because you never know, but I'm very happy with the purchase and I'd recommend it.
