Pros: When working was extremely fast with the addition of a Samsung 500gb SSD.
Cons: CD-R never worked. Tried to return but Newegg would not accept because HDD was reformatted as storage.
Graphics card failed after 6 months and intermittently screen turns red.
Power button works only intermittently so even if the screen worked its hard to turn on.
The fan is located so if its on your lap its easy to block.
Overall Review: This was my first ASUS laptop but I have been a loyal motherboard fan for decades. Very disappointed. Would give zero stars if I could.
