5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, Stable, Reliable Workhorse

Pros: Reliable and stable, this computer can handle just about anything. I use Photoshop and I can do whatever I like now, along with many other memory hog programs also running, and never run out of RAM. This computer is a beast and is pretty fast, especially with a SSD for the C drive.

Cons: the area inside where all the bays are for hard drives is a bit tight. It only holds 2 internal HDs. It seems that the case itself is the limiting factor in expanding and upgrading.
One other nitpicky thing is the power button. It is positioned exactly where you think you'd put a button to open the dvd drive. But no, instead you turn off the computer or put it to sleep. It's very easy to bump by mistake as it sticks out. Also, there is a blinding white LED that blinks when the computer is in standby, from around the power button.
But I used a little ingenuity to handle them and the problem is solved. That's really the only bad thing about this computer, besides the cramped quarters

Other Thoughts: This computer is excellent, the best I've ever had. Like all the other Asus products I've owned, it's well made.
I've had no problems with it, even though I have put it through its paces for several months.
I highly recommend it if it ever becomes available again.

3 out of 5 eggsExpected Better

Pros: *Shipping was fast and packaged well.

*The machine is blazing fast!

*Setup was easy. Plug and play mostly with a few prompts at first boot.

*Very quiet machine!

Cons: *First thing i noticed was a chip in the front of the machine on the optical drive flap, similar to if a rock were to hit the front of your car. Yes the machine is refurbished, but i would still expect something like that to be repaired/replaced.

*There is no driver or restore cd/dvd, no windows cd/dvd, no product key in the documentation, nor a product key sticker on, or in the machine. Seeing the disc's in the product pictures is a bit deceptive. I am a bit upset that this is missing, and would love to have this in case of data corruption/hard drive failures/etc, and is something that normally comes pretty standard when buying machines.

*Related to the misleading pictures, there is also no antenna, nor a place to attach one if it was included. I had no assumption of having a wifi card, as it was not in the description, but again, the pictures of what comes with this are misleading

Other Thoughts: The mouse that comes with this is pretty standard optical, it is new, but nothing makes it stand out above any other common optical mouse

The keyboard is very compact, and is the one in the pictures. I prefer a fully spaced keyboard over the ones where everything is jammed together.

The HDD is most certainly the biggest bottleneck in this machine, but it still runs like a champ.

Video card is 1 GB on the card and 3 GB shared for a total of 4 GB video memory. This isnt terrible, but it is something i would have liked to know beforehand. Its not a huge deal, but i may have opted to buy a different card if i knew.

Power Supply is 300 watts, video card is recommended for 400 watts minimum. I have yet to push this machine in a gaming environment, so i cant say at this point if it holds up to the pressures or not, but it may be wise to invest in something a little more powerful if you go with this product.

4 out of 5 eggsPower Supply Update

Pros: Comes with everything shown, great value. Cheaper then a custom build.

Cons: Front panel causes the power switch to be pressed. Unclipping the panel and fiddling with it a bit fixed the issue.

Other Thoughts: I reviewed this computer earlier thinking it was the power supply, but the issues persisted even with a 500w supply. Eventually I figured it out though.

2 out of 5 eggsnot what's in the picture

Pros: Good base components, CPU, RAM

Cons: Not what is in the picture, they sent a French Keyboard and there is no WiFi adapter or place to even plug one in for that matter. Also came with no documentation or install disk making it more difficult to move the OS to SSD.
The Toshiba HDD that comes with it has plenty of space but is a huge bottleneck for the rest of the system.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully Asus will take care of me on these issues, I haven't opened a ticket yet.
