ability to get to what you want quickly, takes learning , but no complaints, the more I learn how to use it the happier I get.

Asus N550LF-CM115H

 

Lovely laptop, I also have a £1000 MSI Dragon and this is *almost* the same for £300 less!! Nice design, easy to use, fast startup.

Had two faulty units sent originally but (after about 2 weeks) eventually the store sent me a working one. One small issue is the separate little mini subwoofer speaker is a hassle to carry around with the laptop so it's left at home.

Very fast laptop, looks good as well. Great spec for the money , you really do get what you pay for.

Windows 8 took some getting use to. Got here in the end though. I saw some negative comments about battery life. I got 5 hrs I think this is reasonable IMO

Very fast computer which is great for editing video and audio files which include Blue Ray and 4K

Not much really but perhaps the use of a solid state hard drive would have been more useful
