This review is from: ASUS K55A-XH51 Notebook Intel Core i5 3210M (2.50GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6" Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Pros: It's a great bargain for the specs. I really like how light it feels. It also runs cool and quiet. I've not experienced much heat buildup nor encountered distracting fan noise.
Cons: Mine came with malware (search conduit) conveniently pre-installed. Being an IT pro this really didn't present much of a challenge - just more annoying than anything. I would never have expected such a thing from ASUS...makes you wonder about their internal controls.
Other Thoughts: All in all it's a great laptop that I would recommend, given the above caveats.
