    Bad user reviews on Amazon
    Low-cost processor suitable for basic tasks such as internet, music, movies.
    Processor not suitable for multitasking, and computation intensive tasks such as advanced photo and video editing, etc.
    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).
    Battery life is unknown.
    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 4.1 lbs is lighter than average 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
    No built-in CD/DVD drive; Reduces weight but watching movies or installing software from CD/DVD will require separate purchase of optical drive
    Integrated webcam for video chatting

    I bought this laptop from one sale a day. It looks well built, screen size is enormous. Screen is bright. Charge holds for more than 3 hours while working.But the keyboard has issues. The space bar do... It was a great buy, don't regret it at all. It came in a very well packaged box. I guess that was my biggest concern but it came in, in perfect condition.... I've had my new laptop for 3 weeks. This is my first Asus. Light weight, user friendly, works well for me, so far so good.... It was a good purchase for the specifications of the product, The product was light and easy to transport and or operate... Computer works great. Finger pad is a little finicky. But all around a great product and I would recommend it...
