Awesome! I fell in love with the S550CA-DS1T model because of the specs for a reasonable price. However, when I saw this laptop and found myself with a bigger budget than I had planned originally, I jumped on it. Intel Core i7 is an amazing CPU and I am so happy that this laptop is equipped with such a big memory and RAM. It is entirely necessary for my photography hobby. Creative Cloud works wonderfully on this laptop. I am a college student and needed to find a laptop that would be from a reliable brand and included the very specs offered by this laptop. I feel that I sacrificed the SSD that was found in the S550CA-DS1T, but in turn received an extra 2 GB of RAM and a newer processor. I had my doubts, but even without the SSD, the boot time is speedy and there is no lag between functions and transitions to other programs using the Windows 8 shortcuts.It is very fast and extremely fun to use. Windows 8 is exasperating at times because I am still used to Windows 7 and XP, but I am happy…

A decent laptop for the price It was shipped yesterday, but I tried to use it as much as it was possible.Thus, subjectively:pros-almost sleek design, it’s a pleasure to touch the it’s metal lid and keyboard cover-specs which should satisfy any ordinary user’s demands for the following decade-surprisingly good touchpad. works well even with the 3finger gestures. it’s not perfect, but decent.-keyboard is comfortable enough for me, taking into account that I’m used to type much (docs)-touch screen works as good as it might-the presence of a disk drive is a huge plus considering the thinness of the laptopcons-display resolution. I’m not one of these demandful hipsters, but the screen resolution is a shame.-the bottom part material creates a negative impression, considering the rest of the case.I’ll update if some issues will survey.Subjectively I like it and would recommend this laptop for buying.

Great laptop, much searching. I had wanted an Asus since my last purchase of a Sony 4 years ago. I just couldn’t make the jump, mostly because I didn’t know much about them. I do have a Google Nexus 7 that is made by Asus, and looking at many machines side by side I was sold. The build is rock solid, as with most of their products. It had just the right specs, and the one thing that sold me was the color and clarity of the touch screen. HP is just too dim and lifeless. I’ve heard way too many Dell and Toshiba nightmare stories, so I took the plunge. I didn’t get it here as I found it online for a little cheaper at another place. So far the wireless is great and it runs all of the software I need for my DJ business and my podcast. iTunes loaded fine and I am transferring all of my music and podcasts to the giant hard drive. I even like Windows 8 (Gasp!!!). It’s actually very cool and intuitive. Took a minute to find the Control Panel but I found it. I love the touch screen aspect, yet a familiar windows screen is…
