Pros: Good specs overall, i7 is about as speedy as I need. Decent display but I've seen better resolution and brightness on lower end laptops.
Handles video editing with no problems.
Cons: Just under one year of ownership, had an issue where the battery would drain from 100% to fully depleted in less than 5 minutes. Called ASUS and RMA'd the battery under warranty.
Now, just 8 months later, the new battery is having the same problem. Won't charge/hold a charge, and I get a red X over the battery indication that I should consider replacing the battery.
Laptop gets extremely hot, even on the battery saving setting with nothing running and the display dimmed down. Don't know that it's overheating, but it wouldn't surprise me.
Even on a brand new battery, the battery life was right at one hour on battery saving mode, which is almost useless for a laptop.
Other Thoughts: Would be a great machine if battery life was as advertised, or even "better".
Shouldn't have to RMA a battery in under a year, much less a second battery in under 8 months.
Very disappointed given the price tag.
