2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the effort

Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, Nice price. Choice between windows 7 or 8.1.

Cons: Windows 7 comes preloaded with 3 partitions. One recovery partition, a system partition, and the OS partition. So far this is all normal. However, the recovery option for windows 7 cannot be put on usb drive and the system has no OEM recovery option for windows 7. If you want to use an SSD you must clone the hard drive but the 3 partitions copied in reverse order for me using samsung data migration software. Moreover, it wouldn't let me reinstall W7 from the SSD with the partitions in reverse order. The windows 8.1 disks are upgrade disks only and not oem. 7 must be preinstalled to use them. Again there isn't a USB option with either OS and if your original hard drive dies you are out of luck.

Other Thoughts: When switching back and forth from the original HDD that comes preloaded with win 7 from a second hard drive (SSD in my case) loaded with 8.1 you will need to go into Security and disable it via the bois and then enable CSM from the boot menu. If not you will boot straight into the bois repeatedly. I also struggled with and finally decided to give up on installing Linux mint as a duel boot or even a dedicated OS. I am returning this laptop:(

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

You should be able to create a recovery image using an external USB device in WINDOWS 7. I apologize if you are having difficulty doing this process. You need to Start, Getting Started, Backup your files then click "create system image" and follow the wizard. If you need further technical assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N150388045 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel

4 out of 5 eggsIm happy

Pros: UPGRADEABLE TO 8.1 PRO
SPEED
SCREEN SIZE
TOUCHPAD
WEIGHT

Cons: UPGRADING TAKES A WHILE AND IF YOU ARE NOT A TECH SAVVY, IT MIGHT BE A PROBLEM (I am and it took me a while, but I was expecting it).
NO KEYBOARD LIGHT
THE 4GB OF RAM IS BUILT INTO THE MOTHERBOARD (no biggie, still have one more slot of another memory stick of 4GB)
ONLY 2 USB PORTS

Other Thoughts: ASUS IS MY FAVORITE BRAND. EVERYTHING I BUY WORK AS EXPECTED. AS A COMPUTER TECHNICIAN, I THINK IS A GREAT PRICE. IF YOU ARE NOT A COMPUTER SAVVY, I RECCOMEND YOU TO BUY A COMPUTER WITH WINDOWS 8.1 ALREADY INSTALLED TO AVOID ISSUES. (after I did the upgrade, there where some driver issues which was easy to solve for me but might be an issue for you. Not all the drivers on the disk are compatible with win 8.1). Im happy with my purchase. I needed a laptop for school, work, etc. I wasn't expecting a Bluetooth in it (I didn't went through all the specs), WHICH IS GREAT FOR MY SOUND BAR SYSTEM. I FULLY RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT. The performance is great for any average user.
