Pros: - great performance
- fast boot
- graphics card does well with most games
- not as much bloatware as previous laptops
- pretty slim profile and light

Cons: - windows 8
- windows 8.1
- ASUS doesn't provide Windows 7 drivers. When trying to install win7 with other drivers I ran into so many problems I gave up
- spacebar is really spotty. if you don't press firmly in middle of the bar you get mixed results, annoying when typing fast.
- had to download ASUS backup and restore software (not included on machine) in order to install a new hard drive thanks to OEM Windows 8 and the new UEFI bios.

Other Thoughts: Would I purchase again? I'm not sure. If Asus made Windows 7 drivers for this there would be no question.
