Pros: This laptop has a great APU and GPU combo, they run graphic-intense applications very well and I've been quite pleased with its performance despite my many unfortunate events with it.
Cons: This laptop has had problem after problem, first off because this is an OEM product, good luck getting any help from Windows if your OS goes corrupt. At that point you have to send it to Asus to reinstall it, you cannot buy any recovery media for it. I had this happen not once, but twice and the first time both my HDD AND Windows were corrupt, the second time I said screw it and bought a WD Black 2 SSHD and a retail copy of Windows 8.1, couldn't have been any happier after that. Then in the past week, out of the blue my videos start generating artifacts and massive blocking. I attempted to resolve this issue all on my own for several days prior to contacting Asus support. After doing so, they gave me the usual answers, so I just went ahead and tried them anyways. My original hunch was either the APU or GPU graphics went bad, and of course after a few days of narrowing it down I eventually came to the conclusion I had all along. Now I have to send it in for an RMA again, which has started to deteriorate my loyalty to the Asus brand seeing as I own a couple of components of theirs in my desktop(motherboard and GPU). I gave it 3 stars since it really is a powerful mobile machine for the price, the problem is that I've had so many problems with it that I cannot in good conscience recommend this laptop to anyone who is considering it.
Other Thoughts: Laptops are not perfect, I realize this. However, there amount of problems I've had with it really makes me wish I hadn't bought it. I wish I could build my own like a desktop, my desktop runs great and hasn't had any problems like this at all, so it makes me a little more wary of pre-built systems.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This SSD is great for those who want to use it as a boot device, store some games on the drive and maybe even personal files if preferable. I have one of these and a WD Black 3 TB HDD, transfer speeds are lightning fast and games are fantastic, with this setup I'm perfectly content.
Cons: None that I can think of, it's spacious enough and the price is adequate for what it does.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It's big, it glows, it's shiny and best of all it vents air awesomely for a fan set up v.s. coolant system, etc. so it doesn't really get hot or super dusty. I had it for 8 months and opened it up to clean out any dust clusters and such, there weren't any to be found just a thin sheet layer of dust on the components and that's it!
Cons: It is MASSIVE, carrying it with all the components inside is like lifting a boulder, plus it takes up a lot of space and the front has a door for the drives and such so it's kind of an inconvenient design flaw, but it's a giant glowing awesome tower so I'm happy with it for the most part.READ FULL REVIEW
