1 out of 5 eggsNot what it says it is

Pros: Nice design. Touch screen is a plus. Backlit key board a plus as well. Says it comes with Windows 8 but it came with windows 8.1 which is a plus.

Cons: Ok so here it goes. I was going to order this computer for my own personal use. A little background of myself first though. I am the IT guy at a construction company I help set up computers on a daily basis. This computer says it comes with a Nvidia graphics card... No it doesn't it only came with an Integrated HD family graphics card. This site says it comes with an i7 processor no it doesn't it comes with an i5 processor @1.6ghz an 2.3ghz max with turbo. It says it comes with an optical drive... Nope again doesn't come with an optical drive. Says it comes with 8GB of ram... Nope again only came with 6gb of ram

Other Thoughts: Sooo... Yea I'll be sending it back or asking for 200-300 dollars off or something like that because I can buy a brand new one with these specs for cheaper. I don't know if I was the unlucky one who had the guy show up drunk to work at the warehouse. Or if newegg is publishing their products wrong or if its Asus publishing their products wrong, but yep I'm getting on right now to talk to someone about it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat PC

Pros: -Great Price per specs.
-Beautiful screen
-Adequate HD space
-Runs fast
It's hard to find a laptop with a dedicated video card at this price, and this one has a good laptop one. Not great, but good. It runs very cool and quiet.

Cons: -Lots of updates up front.
-Poor speakers.
It ships with Windows 8 on it, and you have to run a bunch of updates BEFORE you can upgrade to windows 8.1. The speakers are on the bottom of the laptop, and don't sound great. They have decent volume, but if you are using it on your lap, they are muffled.

Other Thoughts: I would buy another one of these if I needed it. NewEggs shipping was quick. In fact I got the product BEFORE NewEgg ever marked it as being shipped!

1 out of 5 eggsCan't review it until it will start

Pros: Good price? (See below)

Cons: Won't turn on

Other Thoughts: I can't write a review yet as it's DOA.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product. I apologize if the system will not power on upon arrival. Please verify if the AC adapter was properly connected from the laptop to a working surge protector or AC outlet and the power button is being pressed all the way down to trigger a power on signal. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140917206 on the subject line.

Regards,

Rodel

5 out of 5 eggsExtremely sweet

Pros: One satisfied customer here. High quality laptop, solid components, best screen I've ever seen and it's a touchsceen to boot! Can't beat the price. Cosmetically, just 2 small, light scratches (really just scuff marks from sliding into a case), and 2 small dents that can only be seen if the light is just right.

Cons: Took me all day to update WIN 8 with 119 updates and then upgrade to WIN 8.1. Did not ship with the auxiliary woofer. Wish it had a faster HDD or a SDD. Will likely upgrade to a SDD very soon.

Other Thoughts: The best computer for the price. The next step up was over $500 more, and no touchscreen. Saved a bundle by selecting the refurbished model.

1 out of 5 eggsAudio is Terrible

Pros: Beautiful display, fast machine.

Cons: The audio is really scratchy and I can barely hear anything I am trying to listen to. I tried wearing headphones but even those were scratchy. I am very disappointing and I am sending it back to ASUS ASAP.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize if you are experiencing issue with the audio upon arrival and the laptop needs to be returned. The scracthy sound can be related to improper setup with the microphone and speaker settings. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140848346 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

4 out of 5 eggsKnow What You Are Buying

Pros: The 1080p screen is wonderful. It is viewable from angles, so you don't have to be exactly in front of it. Out of the box, the font size is set to make it look like a lower resolution screen. If you want full 1080p screen real estate, you'll need to make things like fonts and icons smaller.

Mine had a hidden mSATA slot on the motherboard if you remove the bottom housing of the notebook. You could add an SSD and have both a boot SSD and the 1tb hd for mass storage.

Once the housing is removed, the dvd can easily be traded out for a bdr.

Can upgrade to 16gb of RAM. (Haven't done it, yet.)

It has TWO video ports (hdmi and displayport) and I was able to attach two monitors and, if the notebook's screen is included in the count, was able to create a three monitor set-up.

Cons: The battery is NOT removable. It is replaceable if you remove the bottom of the computer and are careful about removing the battery. I have seen only OEM replacement batteries on the market.

The combo headphone/speaker port was really flaky. If I fiddled with it a bit, I could sometimes get it to work. Rather than mess with it further, I bought a $5 usb sound adapter with separate speaker and headphone jacks and that works fine.

The realtek sound driver and the track pad drivers are REALLY dumbed down. Many of the options you expect to have with these two devices are missing. Especially with the trackpad, hopefully you are happy with the very basic mouse functions.

The built-in speakers are atrocious. The highs are sound crisp, but the lower mid-range and all bass sounds like it has been cut-off electronically. Asus marketed a small proprietary sub-woofer for around fifty for use with this machine. There's a special (proprietary?) plug for it and, presumably when equipped with the add-on woofer, the sound was decent. If you want to listen to any music, it's too annoying to do so without add-on speakers. The speakers say they are designed by Bang & Olufsen, but don't let that fool you!

Other Thoughts: This computer was specially manufactured for a national electronics chain and I believe was aimed to look GREAT in a showroom (the screen, the dual core (not quad) i-7 cpu, the geforce graphics for an awesome demo display, brushed black aluminum) and touch screen. The target consumer was probably expected to be unsophisticated -- unlike your average newegg buyer.

With that nice 1080p screen and the nvidia graphics and that surprise mSATA port at the price I paid, it's hard not to be happy and ignore all the little problems.

My unit had no visible blemishes, but the AC adapter of all things had seen some pretty hard use.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

It's good to know that you are satisified with the laptop besides your concern on some features of the unit. ASUS does provide warranty coverage for the unit and if the audio jack or port is giving you problem, please let me know. If you need to send it in for service, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140831489 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

4 out of 5 eggsGood, but be careful

Pros: Laptop performs well in most aspects. There are issues with windows 8 but they can be resolved with a bit of tinkering.

Cons: The laptop shipped with a completely broken headphone audio port ( https://i.imgur.com/kkqjqd4.jpg ). The port is completely loose and has no metal piece to actually touch the headphone jack.

I contacted ASUS support and was told that physical damage voids the warranty. Huh? This is more than a Grade B - Minor Cosmetic Imperfection.

All I really wanted was for them to send a USB Sound adapter or USB headphones and it would've saved us both time and money.

I am a huge ASUS fan, in fact this is the third laptop I've purchased from them so that was a little bit disappointing to hear.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

It's great to know that you are a big ASUS fan. I apologize if you have received the unit with a broken headphone jack or port, this is an isolated case. All ASUS products undergo intensive qualitycontrol testing and inspections. ASUS provides warranty for the laptop in order to fix or repair any isolated factory escape defect. If you need help sending it in for service, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140807443 on the subject line.

1 out of 5 eggsdo not buy

Pros: no pros

Cons: this was a horrible computer. I don't know what is going on with Newegg but the computer came in just a brown box. No book, no nothing. I had to end up sending computer back. Don't buy refurb

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize if you were dissatisfied with the laptop. If a User's Manual is needed, this can be donwloaded at the ASUS support site. If you need helpful tips on how to operate or use WINDOWS 8.1, please go visit the Microsoft website.

5 out of 5 eggsDef worth the money

Pros: I got this for school use, some gaming, netflix, and general internet surfing.

-Description says and some folks noticed a few dings and scratches, and some other people haven't. I looked everywhere for an imperfection - i couldn't find one. Looks brand new.

-backlit keyboard, great keyboard overall style (comfy),

-Games run smooth (that i played - Borderlands 2, Skyrim, bunch of indie games, L4D2). I usually don't get into the heavy AAA titles or popular (moba, WoW) games. Def a step up from my old laptop. I'm sure you can run the gfx heavy games like AC:BF, BF4, etc. but on medium or low settings. All in all it works for me.

-has touchscreen. prob not going to use it much for hey it's a bonus

-CD/DVD drive - prob won't use it but yay i guess?

Cons: -Not a fan of windows 8 but can't blame the laptop on that everything has windows 8 now.

-HDD is slow yea we know it is but if you really want a SDD should be easy to switch out

-Really don't like the touchpad. Maybe it's just me. That's what the mouse is for i guess.
