Pros: This is a fast little computer. I bought it as a work/school laptop for myself and it is PERFECT for that. I did install Rift on it, just to see how it would do. I was able to play on ultra without lag. It got a little hot after playing the game for a while, but that's to be expected and it was not NEARLY as hot as most laptops do. I love my Asus and have been bragging about it since it came in the mail. Fully recommend it as a school or work computer but probably not for lots of gaming.
Cons: Though it played the game great, while patching RIFT, it did NOT want to do anything else. The keyboard can feel slightly cheap but I think that's due to the fact that it's made of a light weight plastic. Keyboard works fine though.
Other Thoughts: It looks great! The matte black is a good choice.

ASUS X501A - Wrong Keyboard Out of Box
Pros: This laptop is an amazing deal for a budget laptop. All the power you need to do your basic web browsing, multimedia viewing and run your normal applications like office. I'm more than happy with the decision I made to purchase this laptop, came clean and well packaged.
Cons: The keyboard came out wrong right out of the box. I'm going to contact customer service right now and will probably write another review updating on how they dealt with this problem.
Other Thoughts: The computer is amazing and I feel bad leaving such a bad rating for something that could have been one time simple mistake by someone, but its a huge deal to have all your keyboard buttons out of place.
