4 out of 5 eggsVery nice Laptop, but weird speaker placement

Pros: Great battery life (up to around 4hrs with light use). Good processor and Intel HD 4000 for enough graphics power for anyone that isn't a relatively higher end gamer. Asus SmartGesture is also nice.

Cons: Speakers are on the bottom for some reason (they don't seem like bad speakers, just poor placement) and the large fairly sensitive mouse takes some getting used to while typing (just need to keep your hands away from it so no major problem, but a bit annoying). I'm also not a fan of Windows 8 that came with it. I formatted it and dual booted it with Win7 and Linux Mint (had some issue cause I didn't realize I needed to change the partition table to deal with that, but otherwise went rather smoothly).

4 out of 5 eggsAsus A55A

Pros: A very good buy. Purchasing from Newegg is always great.

Cons: Windows 8 restore OS does not function. I could not reinstall OS to a SSD. I had to purchase Windows 8 to install on SSD.

Other Thoughts: I planned to install an Intel SSD in the notebook. I used the Asus Backtracker software to create an OS restore on a 16 GB USB flash drive. Problems started when the restore flash drive program ran 15 minutes. The program would lock up after the new partitions were created on the SSD. I tried the restore on a new conventional 500 GB drive, with the same problem. I created a new restore flash drive with Backtracker. Everything failed to create functioning Windows 8 partitions on any drive. I talked to Asus tech support many times. The problem was never solved. The problem seems to be on the OS restore programs on the drive Asus notebook because the restore (F9) does not function either.
I solved my problem myself by purchasing and installing Windows 8 OEM on the Intel SSD and using the drivers from the Asus web site. The support at Asus was always friendly and supportive, but offered no solution other then sending the A55A back to Asus.
