Pros: -fast-sleek-great keyboard-no bloatware, just McAfee and Office (easy to remove)-excellent value
Cons: - ASUS could have loaded the User Guide ahead of time.
Overall Review: I've been an ASUS user for 12 years. Their products are will made and last. This laptop replaced an N53SV core i7 that I got in December 2010. It was still going strong. I hated to give it up; but it was getting impossible to buy replacement parts.Love the feel of the new keyboard and the matte silver finish is easy on the eyes. Took a while to figure out the Action Center was where I needed to go to get everything setup. I did not like being forced to go through Cortana to do the initial set up. I'm an old IT pro and used to doing stuff my way.A week into using this and I'm now comfortable with where ASUS moved some of the keys. I do miss not being able to jump to the top of the screen by just hitting the "home" key; hate that I have to press the fn at the same time.
