I shopped for months for a great laptop value. Knowing that new models are coming out soon, I decided to take advantage of an older premium laptop than waiting on a more expensive new kid on the block. My last laptop was an Asus and my wife and I both have Transformer tablets so there was no other brand for me to shop for. Could not be happier with this decision

Cons: Supplied 1TB 5400rpm HDD
Lack of Touch Screen
DVD rather than BluRay player
Dealing with administrative rights in Windows 8

Other Thoughts: Only turned on the unit and registered it with the supplied hard drive. I bought a Samsung 840 EVO 500GB SSD along with the laptop (also from Newegg) and immediately swapped it out. Samsung's supplied Data Migration software cloned the drive just fine, but did not clone the Asus Recovery portion of the HDD. Windows Disk Mamagement and Macrium Reflect allowed me to clone that portion so the SSD is now perfect. Did my Windows 8 updates, then updated to Windows 8.1 and now this sucker flies! From powering up to the main screen for logging in is less than 10 secs! With Windows 8 and my use of a tablet and smartphone, I had a little buyer's remorse before receiving it that I may have erred by not getting a touch screen and I almost called and cancelled my order, but I'm glad I didn't. The ease of the 10 point touchpad made me forget about the lack of a touch screen, especially since Windows 8.1 makes it easy to get to a familiar desktop screen.
