Pros: Great price. Plenty of ram and holds its own against much pricier cards. Has run everything I've thrown at it so far AND stays cool while doing so. Arkham Origins(or any Unreal engine), BF4-Ultra...all the good stuff.
Cons: None to speak of.
Size may be an issue for some, this is a FULL size card and uses every inch of space in my mid-tower.
Other Thoughts: This was on sale below 4 bills at time of purchase, which for the performance offered and amount of RAM is an excellent buy. Upgrade was from the GTX460 series and the performance boost is night and day.
Do keep the size in mind when purchasing.
Overall, great buy, you will not be disappointed.
Pros: So far (2+ months at time of review) this has been a great purchase. You really cant go wrong; build, touchscreen, great specs. Intel HD4000, SSD combo HD is a great compromise in space/performance. A quality product from ASUS which does not disappoint.
Cons: The power save software (Powergear I believe?) is a double layer to the built in windows power save function. It will often supersede windows settings, forcing the CPU levels down even while plugged in. (adjustments to this seem to have no effect, minimalist is really the only setting it likes.) Un-install that software and you are golden.
The touch-pad takes a bit of getting used too. You will find yourself swapping screens a lot during normal motions. Again, this is a touchscreen so your not on that touch-pad often, but slightly annoying when you are. Those times you are on it are usually due to small icons (fat fingers) or finiky browser plugins. Not a direct product fault at all.
Other Thoughts: Bought this for the wife this past xmas and so far she's loved it! The 14" touchscreen is a nice sweet spot in size/performance. You're getting a full windows8 system, plenty of horse power & graphics. (general, 99percentile use folks, not crysis3) Touchscreen? I will say, I am now a believer; A seasoned user can become very quick with this thing. True you wont beat a mouse for precision, but most tasks don't require it!
Overall....great product, great buy. Open the lid>GO. That simple.
