Pros: Boots quick, light, can put what you want on (though may not run), great battery charge
Cons: Windows 8, touchscreen iffy at best, not nearly enough power
Other Thoughts: It took 5 tries to get windows 8 upgraded (kept saying it there was a mistake and froze. Required a complete reinstall), most games I want to run are hindered to a small square on the screen because of two choices in screen resolution. Don't let the full windows 8 fool you, in app mode it works great, desktop mode lags, crashes, and is an all round crummy experience. Still one of the better tabs I have owned.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It was fast, and had an easy hard drive change
Cons: Ram not upgradable, came with windows 8, spilled a little water on the keyboard and it fried.
Other Thoughts: I picked mine up here refurbished in the spring for using while on the road, a couple days after the warranty expired, sitting at a coffee shop and someone bumps the table. A little bit of water splashes down onto the keyboard so I shut down the computer as quickly as I could. Let the computer dry out in warm room face down for 24 hours and go to start it up. I have the flashing green light but that's it. Wait another 24 hours and then nothing. I will admit that dumping a bottle of water is excessive but not the mouthful that fell on this thing. My Dell survived half a coffee and still works fine, you'd think Asus would be better than Dell in every way. I still swear by Asus with their desktop hardware, just a little unsure about the durability of their laptops.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This RAM combo has kept up with everything I've ever asked it to do. It's fast, it's reliable. I went through 4 different failed motherboards this year in my desktop and these stick have been one sold device that has been to suffer with poor quality in other areas.
Cons: I bought the 16GB sets separately, and I know at the beginning when I was only running the 16GB there were times when the ram was having trouble keeping up.
Other Thoughts: I couldn't be happier, I may switch brands of RAM frequently with my builds, but in my desktop G-Skill has earned my trust, respect, and brand loyalty. That's something not easily earned in the PC business.READ FULL REVIEW
