WARNING IT WILL NOT WORK

 

I really wish I had not bought this. If possible always try to make your own desktop pc.

Yeah its a nice laptop. but it will die 3 months into use

WARNING! Absolutely DO NOT BUY this piece of equipment. It is 100% defective. Just 3 months into it's use, the screen flashed white, and when I turned it off it never recovered. Now I have a useless piece of junk, what was once worth 900 dollars is now...

what a joke

 

Costumer service was a joke. I spent countless hours talking to people that flat out lied to me every step of the way mostly because they have do idea what is going on in there own service department. I'm probably down about 200 in shipping and another...

none

Didn't work on arrival. After a few months the mother board died out of warranty. I tried to get it fixed through Asus but they sent it back to me cause a didn't make payment with in a couple of days. I tried to them that it takes 5 days for a new...

LOVE

 

Best electronic devise I've ever laid my hands on. I swore ALIENS accidentally sent me a top-of-the-line laptop, with secret technology. But realistically, you'll wanna play BF4 at 1280x720 and everything on ULTRA and it runs SUPER SMOOTH!

Price and Performance

If you're playing a game, the touch pad seems a little too far to the left, where your WASD hand is place, and sometimes you misfire. You gotta hold an FN key and press F9 to shut the touchpad off. Otherwise, NO COMPLAINTS

Hardly Worked

 

I have been able to fix all computer problems I've had in the past and have had no luck with this computer. My graphics card runs far slower than it should--it gets a 4.1 windows score and can barley play old games on low. I have reinstalled the OS...

Very powerful for it's price (if I didn't need to pay for a return), smaller than older ROG's, looked cool

Screen glitches, driver compatibility issues, semi-working video card, crashed whenever put to sleep, could not change screen brightness, somewhat unresponsive touch pad

Practically Flawless Out Of Box. 8.1 Major Pain.

 

At the time, I paid $900 for the laptop, so maybe you can find a better deal. But there is nothing wrong with this one. Just be ready for a journey updating to 8.1 and DO NOT try to update all of it at once. Once you get all the necessary windows...

Upgradable (RAM and extra HDD or SSD bay) ; Great screen. (1080p 17.3") ; Surprisingly responsive touch pad ; Back lights disperse evenly across the board ; Speakers are good ; Keyboard feels great ; The actual machine is amazing, this said, you always...

First off, I'm rating this 5/5 only because the actual laptop s great. The operating system on the other hand ; Went to update all the windows updates before installing the 8.1 update, like any sane person I selected to install all necessary updates at...

IF YOU BUY, GET AN EXTENDED WARRANTY

 

If you buy their products, make sure you can get an extended warranty. There are third party companies you can get them from like SquareTrade. Based on past experiences with their products (never had one of their laptops, but other devices), I trusted...

Fast performer, in every aspect this was the perfect laptop for me...until things started messing up 2 months later

Support dropping the ball. Wjhile still under Warranty, sent it back for what was obviously a physical short or loose connection internally that was causing the screen to blank out. Even provided a video of the problem in action (light pressure in...

Smooth

 

As this is an initial review, I am still learning of the capes and lims of this system. So far it is impressive and I will be retiring a desktop and use this in it's place.

Sturdy, excellent keyboard, responsive, powerful, expandable, upgradeable, good design and well made

Matt case paint/coating picks up dust and oil all too well. While playing using the keyboard, the Windows Metro screen comes up often - never had that happen using my HP notebook (same size and layout)

very pleased with my purchase

 

was looking for a desktop replacement for an old sony laptop ( got 12 years out of the thing so I really can't complain!!) purchased this laptop for around $1000. ( now they are 899 but that's the price you pay with any technology), really can't...

very fast, great for playing games, arrived in perfect condition, looks brand new

windows 8 sucks ( but windows 7 laptops with good graphics cards are hard to find ) wish the graphics card was a little higher spec, but for the price, really can't complain. will easily play any 3d game decently for years to come

Pretty and works!

 

This lap top has been doing exactly what I want. I wanted to be able to play most games when away from my home desktop, it does just that. Has been used with Diablo 3 max graphics, and I'm certain it can be used for other things. For some reason I wish...

Fast ; Cool design (Stays cool too!) ; Big Screen

It has Windows 8
