Pros: Fast, easy to use, comes loaded with Windows 8
Cons: Trackpad is really sensitive, keyboard takes some getting used to
I purchased my ASUS at the end of February 2013 because my old laptop died last October and I desperately needed a new one. My budget, however, was small, and anyone who has ever bought a computer or at least shopped around for one knows that an affordable computer can be hard to come by. I picked mine up for a little over $200, brand new, at Best Buy and so far I have no complaints.
The one I have now, though, is actually the second one I've had. The one I bought originally suddenly stopped working about three days after I got it, so I took it back to Best Buy and they replaced it with a display model. This one has been working perfectly fine, so I'm figuring that that was just a hardware failure in that one computer. This one moves at lightning speed, runs on Windows 8 which I love because it's very streamlined and comprehensive while not being too overwhelmingly different from the Windows of yore, and unlike my old laptop, it can run for hours on end without overheating! It's definitely a computer to invest in, and at such a low price, to be able to get such quality is absolutely amazing.
The keyboard takes a little getting used to, at least if you're moving from a laptop that didn't have a numberpad on the keyboard. Because of the inclusion of the numberpad, the letter keys are shifted over a bit from what you may be used to, so be prepared to struggle with typing the right letters and getting your hands in the right position. Also, the trackpad can be a bit finnicky and very sensitive, but it works a lot like a touch screen phone or tablet in that you can use more than one finger to do things like scroll, zoom in and out, and go from the desktop to your Metro (Windows 8) apps.
