Pros: Fast, great graphics, runs cool, and built like a tank. Sound is decent especially after using an Acer for a few years. Full size backlit keyboard with number pad. Easy upgrade to windows 8.1.
Cons: Windows 8. Touchpad that easily activates the Windows 8-8.1 charm bar. Left edge/corner of computer digs into my hand when using the touchpad. Windows key needs disabling to efficiently use the keyboard. Large charger and relatively short power cord.
Other Thoughts: To disable touchpad/charms bar problem: click lower right corners "up" arrow to get to Asus smart gesture. double-click. unselect charm bar ...and don't forget to "apply" changes! (credit to others). This fix (and disabling the Windows key through a free program called Key Tweak) made the unit operable.
