Pros: i7-4770! 16GB of RAM! Came with a free pair of headphones! What's not to like?!
Cons: - Optical drive was DOA. Hence, 1 star docked.
- Way too much bloatware. Started up much slower than my nearly 7-year-old Acer Travelmate that it replaced, though the SSD in the Acer might make a slight difference. :) Crapware removed, faster now.
- Hard drive is a Toshiba DT01ACA100; doesn't have the best reviews on Newegg. I'll see how it holds up. But you can't expect WD Black drives in a pre-built machine.
Other Thoughts: It would seem like the optical drive wasn't QC'd at the factory or by the ASUS guys that assembled the machine. Didn't show up in Device Manager or BIOS. Newegg was nice to work with on the RMA, but I was without my new computer for two weeks or so. Otherwise, everything's great. Liking Windows 7!
