its new- so all works fine. I like the quick switch on function

keyboard layout (larger keyboard takes some getting used to). The 2 USB ports are too close to each other so bit tight when I have two things connected to at same time.

Asus X550CC-XO108H

 

It is slim

It is not very fast and the windows 8 system is terrible. It was never fast and for all this processing power you would think you could open an application in under 10 seconds.
