    Bad user reviews on Newegg
    Sufficient processing power for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), advanced photo and video editing, 3D graphics, virtualization software(parallels), file and harddrive encryption
    Memory sufficient for multi-tasking, internet, music, movies, productivity(Word, Spreadsheets, etc), basic photo and video editing
    Memory may not be sufficient for simultaneous editing of large number of photos and videos, virtualization software(parallels), engineering and simulation software, etc
    Uses conventional harddrive. Higher power consumption, lower shock resistance and longer startup time compared to solid state drive(SSD).
    5 hrs battery life is better than average
    Basic GPU allows playing less demanding games (WoW, Sims3, etc) at low detail settings and resolution
    GPU is not suitable for demanding games (Assassin's creed, Black Ops 2,) even at lowest settings
    15.6" screen provides good tradeoff between desktop replacement and portability
    Weight of 5.1 lbs is typical for this screen size
    Economy display with resolution of 1366 x 768; screen space sufficient for most purposes but less than ideal for graphics design, gaming, programming etc
    Built in CD/DVD drive; allows watching movies and software installation from CD/DVD
    Integrated webcam for video chatting
    Processing power might not be sufficient for ultra high requirements such as running simulations

    2014-JAN-06:Unfortunately, I can't - yet.I am a huge fan of Asus products. I am looking at my Asus monitor right now while I write this review, using my Asus motherboard (probably my 10th Asus mobo by... Love this laptop, loads up fast, touch screen, even though I heard a lot of negative reviews about windows 8, I love it so far, easy access to my emails, games, internet etc. all with a touch of a fi... I've had this for a few months now and not a single problem. I upgraded the RAM from 4 to 8 gb. This system runs great, very fast. The only thing I didn't like was how the 500 gb hard drive was part... ASUS has the single worst customer service and warranty program I have ever had to deal with. If you do buy their product, you'd better pray that you don't have any problems with it, because you won't... OK computer for school work. Would be nicer if it had bluetooth so that we didn't have to use up usb port on an adapter.... Great laptop. Lot's of problems setting up because of windows 8. Microsoft knows about the problem and has a fix but you have to have someone take you to it. I would never recommend windows 8 to anyon... excellent team , bun delivery time but the product came incomplete , lacking the charger so I had to buy one separately.... I like my computer. I am not so sure about windows 8, but the computer works just fine....
