Pros: Large Screen, bright display, powerful, backlit keyboard, a factory warranty that covers accidental damage, rubberized coating
Cons: Poor audio reproduction for bass audio, some bloatware (not too much compared to other laptops), prone to visible fingerprints
Other Thoughts: Another reviewer (either on this one or one of the other builds) mentioned that you couldn't use the left click and push a button at the same time. This is a Windows 8 setting that can be adjusted by opening up the charm bar -> Change PC Settings (on the bottom) -> PC and Devices -> Mouse and Touchpad, then change the "Touchpad" setting to "No delay (always on)."
Others recommend doing a clean install of Windows and you can do this if you want, but it's not necessary. There's very little bloatware on the laptop. Actually, other than a trial of Office and a subscription to McAfee (at least I think there might be a trial, I don't know, I removed it right away), the rest of the included software is either Asus software or other drivers.
I recommend running the display calibration software in Windows. The display that mine came with was very bright with too much blue in the display that made the picture look washed out.
I'm not sure if NewEgg allows updating of reviews, but if they do, I'll be sure to come back and update should anything come up.
Pros: Small, included power supply, minimal design.
Cons: Tight space, front covers are a little flimsy.
Other Thoughts: You would expect a small case to have tight spaces, so it's not really a con. The case did its job and is working quite well. I used it in a build for my parents and they like the size of it. I finally got them away from using laptops as desktop computers. The stock cooler for an Intel APU might not fit, I didn't really try though. I used the Noctua NH-L9I and it fit with a little bit of clearance.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: ZALMAN MFC1 Plus-B Black 6 Channel Multi Fan Controller
Pros: Does a great job of controlling the fans, very clean and simple appearance and installation was easy.
Cons: The knobs are a little loose and wobble some. They do feel as though they might eventually fall off or break.
Other Thoughts: Overall it's not a bad product. Probably more reliable than the touch screen fan controller I had and used, which is now just a backup. Does it job controlling my many fans.READ FULL REVIEW
