Pros: Amazing laptop, super fast and doesn't over heat when play games like COD, LoL, or Skyrim
Cons: It came damaged, it would come up with blue screen when I turn it on sometimes, and when I called newegg they told me to send it in for a replacement and when I did it took them from thanksgiving to the week of christmas! So I called newegg everyday to ask what was going on, and most of them told me, "we are waiting on RMA response". Then I get an e-mail from the RMA department saying that they ran my laptop for 12 HOURS STRAIGHT and is not defective and to just contact ASUS if I am not satisfied with what they have done and that they will be shipping it back to me. Like really now? How is Newegg going to make me wait a whole month and say that my item is not defective and return it to me?? If my laptop wasn't defective, why would I waste my time and send it in? I needed that laptop to do school work and thanks to Newegg I failed 2 finals! Thanks Newegg! I spent $750 on a laptop that doesn't even turn on sometimes. Never again would I buy something from Newegg! What happened to customer is always right? SMH worst Christmas ever.

Good, with some bad things
Pros: + USB 3.0
Cons: - Speakers are on the bottom...
Other Thoughts: DON'T use the ASUS updater, just use windows update. It took me hours with the ASUS one, windows update was simple and quick.

Great laptop for the price!
Pros: Comes with Windows 7!! I've tried using Windows 8 in a virtual PC and my wife got a new Windows 8 PC for her work and we hate it, so getting Windows 7 with this laptop saved me the hassle of formatting and reloading it.
Cons: Unable to easily change default partition sizes. Drive appears to be configured in a 40/60% C:/D: configuration. I actually prefer a secondary partition for keeping my data separate from the OS, but the 40% C: drive was a bit large for my needs. Windows was unable to resize the partition and attempting to use a 3rd party partition manager crashed the whole system resulting in a factory restore. The restore options appear to let you choose between a full C: drive or a split C:/D: drive, but you're unable to choose the partition sizes in the restore.
Other Thoughts: MAKE THE RECOVERY DISCS IMMEDIATELY!! Thankfully I at least made the ISO files for the recovery discs before attempting to resize the partitions and was able to remove the hard drive and connect to another computer to get the ISO's burned to DVD's. Otherwise I'd have been totally hosed as there's no physical recovery media included.

Very Good For Price
Pros: Very Comfortable Feeling
Cons: No real separation on touch pad from buttons to pad, the pad picks up fingers on the buttons and thinks you are using both fingers.
Other Thoughts: This laptop is an excellent combination of graphics for light-medium use gamer, and also perfect for battery life. It's lightweight and quiet and very comfortable to have on my lap or on a college desk.
