Asus M70AD-US003S

 

The Asus M70AD-US003S is a multimedia tower that includes an admirable amount of forward-looking technology, while retaining the features that keep veteran PC users returning to traditional form factors.

Near-field communication (NFC) and Qi wireless charging. Excellent multimedia performance. Speedy solid-state hybrid drive (SSHD). USB 3.0 ports on the front panel. Supports older digital media like CompactFlash. Built-in uninterruptible power supply...

Some future upgrade issues

The Asus M70AD-US003S ($1,199, as tested) is a midrange tower that offers the best of two worlds. It has forward-looking capabilities, such as near-field communication (NFC) and Qi wireless charging, and retains legacy features, like a P/S2 port and a...

Good computer

 

Worth the price I bought it for, just wish the keyboard was more gamer friendly, since this is a "gamer" computer.

Computer is great. Fast boot up time, handles the games I play, and runs all my school applications as well

The stock keyboard is garbage for gaming. I will be running in a game and my input will just stop and I have to re-press the key quickly or wait for it to respond again

great value

 

I couldn't be happier. Prompt delivery. Exactly as advertised. As I didn't build it, I get a warranty. ;-)

Built in UPS, hybrid SSD/HDD, great hardware for the price

to the user who says overpriced

 

To everyone that wanted to reply to the "overpriced" comment, you are welcome. Ok, I feel better now. Back to work for me.

I never comment on items I dont own, but to the review that says the PC is overpriced is ridiculous. You left LABROR. Add those key components together and the PC is VERY reasonable. You realize companies dont assemble and support PC's for free right

newegg doesnt stop reviews from people who either dont own the product (including me) or know nothing about how basic economics works
