The installation went without a hitch, took about 5 mins. Turned it on, and installed Windows 8 Pro.
HOWEVER, the Asus driver CD does not properly support Win8. You will need to download some files manually when you upgrade.
I also had to calibrate my battery to make it read about 6 hours. It is advertised to run at 4.5 hours, but initially I was only getting 2.5. After running the battery to zero % and searching to 100% it said 6.5 hours :) Been running it for about 3 hours now...still says 3:15 hours left!!!
You only need to remove one screw to gain access to the HDD and RAM!!! WOW so easy!
I will be using this for VMware labs and VCP5 practice! So far......so good!
This laptop is a 3rd gen I7 with a quad core running on the ivy bridge. Make sure you use the 64bit edition of windows to utilize all ram.
The hardware for this laptop (in its price range) is fairly high end, and it does run fast and smoothly, once you remove all the initiating processes. The screen is nice, the webcam works well, it has the latest quad core mobile processor and the stock hard drive is a 7200 rpm model. My only other caveat is that the directional keys are slightly misplaced on this unit and a tap to the right shift key often ends up hitting the arrow keys instead.
Overall, a nice laptop that is marred by too many proprietary Asus bloatware programs and too much third party promotional software. As it stands now, four stars. However, if you have time and the inclination to remove most of the crap (Revo Uninstaller works well for most), and can get the unit down to a nice light state, it is about 4.7 stars out of five.
I have increased the memory to Max.16 Gb with a high speed 1 terrabyte hard drive. One additional nice feature, is it has a backlit keyboard. You can keep it lighted without turning off unlike other backlit keyboards. Battery can be replaced by removing only 1 screw. Nice but battery box lid opens slightly, frequently, not enough to cause the machine to have problem, but I'm always snapping it back firmly closed.
As an aside, I mention Amazon a lot (in a positive light) but I have no association with the company. I am just a very satified customer, for their great service & return policy.
