It is fast, sleek, and has a TON of room for expansion. The ATX case is oversized, slightly wider than what I am used to but that allows greater air circulation. It has vent holes on the non-mainboard side. 4 USB-3 ports and then 6 more USB-2 (total of TEN USB ports!!). Both the motherboard and the graphics card have VGA, DVI and HDMI ports. Running ultra-high res. dual monitors is a snap.
The thing is fast and comes pre-loaded with Windows 8 (which I hate) but no perceivable bloatware. I installed Classic Shell and run it to look like a Win 7 machine. My one complaint--and this is a HUGE one is the design of the DVD player. The button to open the Blu-Ray/DVD/CD writer/burner/reader/(etc) is just below the power button--and of course they look exactly the same. They are horizontal, light bars at the top right of the machine. Every time I try to pop open the DVD drive I reach for the power switch, and I have turned off my computer a few times no by mistake. It is a design flaw. The button to open the DVD player is below the bay, when intuitively it would seem it is above the bay. When you go to close the DVD drive you can't see the DVD bay button but you can see (and easily reach) the power button.
THAT is how you end up turning off the computer ("instant kill switch") instead of closing the DVD bay. I am removing an entire star for poor chassis design. Other than that this is everything you would expect. The specs are listed in the product description. KEEP THE BOX!! This thing is professionally packed with an inch of Styrofoam and air around it, which is good because the UPS gouged a huge hole in the extra-thick cardboard this thing shipped in. See the product pics I posted a few months ago.Read more ›
Admittedly, I am not a gamer so I have not attempted to run any modern games and tax the system as far as graphics performance. I'm fairly certain that this model would please virtually everyone. The system also comes with software for performance features such as over-clocking for those that need that extra level of processing power.
I also appreciated that the ASUS pre-installed software does not hinder the performance of the desktop nor does it negatively impact the user experience. Additionally, the pre-installed software that I did not desire to retain was easily uninstalled.
I've found the system to work remarkable well with all devices I've installed on it, including my wireless printer and Logitech wireless peripherals.
Anyone in the market for a performance Windows 8 desktop for around $1000 should seriously consider this well designed model from ASUS. I believe that your experience should be the same as mine and that you will not be disappointed.

The computer is great. It's super fast, the hard drive is huge, and the Ram is outstanding. But I'm taking away two stars because the keyboard is almost totally worthless. Read morePublished on July 31, 2013 by Marcos, the Wayfarer
