You can't beat the price for what you are getting. Windows 8 is hard to navigate, on any computer that isn't touch screen, so go ahead and spend $700 on a more expensive machine, if it has 8 it's going to navigate just like this cheaper model. If you want a relatively fast computer for running Office, it's great. Surfing the web, no problem, watching videos - done, playing many games on medium to low setting, can't complain. I've never been a fan of AMD and have only owned 3 of the 15+ laptops I've had in my life, but the quazi-quad core A8-4500M is impressive, for the money. 6MB RAM is more than enough to run 64 bit plus a couple of other open programs. I've tested this thing out for 2 weeks now and I can't find a flaw, for the money. You can spend another $150 - $200 on an i5, but for the general user, what's the point. Unless parts start falling off of it, I can't forsee any issues. It doesn't have blue tooth and the speakers are, "meh", but if you are looking at this price point, those things shouldn't be high on your wish list anyway. Dollar for dollar, I actually rate this better than my 3rd gen i7. Will it do ALL the same things? No, but I never had that expectation - it also cost me $575 less.

I have been around computers since 1978 and i would have to say this computer is very well made, performance has exceeded my expectations, especially after reading some of the negative reviews. As far as as Windows 8 OS, I like it. There is a learning curve, but that would have to be expected with any new computer and/or OS. My wife who is still using Vista on her desktop has made the adjustment to Win 8 very quickly and loves Win 8. I'm lucky i can get on the laptop to do anything anymore....lol I would recommend this computer to my friends and associates

I find this product to be very astonishing. I needed a new laptop and I heard great things about Asus. After searching and searching for Asus laptop I stumbled into this one. I was surprise for the price. It is a great laptop. Its not too loud, nice design and great screen resolution. I don't know why in other reviews that windows 8 is tough to get used to, but I found it to be quite easy to navigate. The only thing I did not like was it was so many apps in the start screen for windows 8 that are pretty much useless for a laptop. So I just ignore it and go start to desktop. Besides the work I do in this laptop I do manage to play a few games in this laptop. So its pretty good if your a causal gamer like myself. Overall, I recommend this laptop to anyone who needs a new laptop for working/causal gaming.

I have had this laptop for a couple weeks and is a lot faster than my last one. I did get used to Windows8 and it is not as bad as they said it would be. All comments said a touch screen would be nice, I am not too sure. It's what your used to. There is a desktop icon that lets you use laptop the old way. The part that is troublesome is the mouse pad, when I touch it things happen that I don't want to. This is maybe a little bit of getting used to pad and functions. So far, a nice lightweight laptop.

Purchased this laptop for our son who is a senior in college. He was impressed with the computer itself and the software that was included in the package. He was impressed with the screen size and clarity. Couldn't believe I (Mom) picked this out for him!
