Keep the keyboard perfectly dry 12/15/2013
It was fast, and had an easy hard drive change
Ram not upgradable, came with windows 8, spilled a little water on the keyboard and it fried.
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.
