Asus is an amazing brand for laptops and computer hardware in general and this laptop is no different. before this laptop i built my own personal desktop a couple years ago with some pretty top of the line parts and it ran great, but then i got this beast of a laptop and have essentially forgotten about my desktop. this laptop is as fast if not faster and more powerful than my desktop.
_-Functionality and hardware-_
This laptop will do practically anything anyone needs it to do. the hardware is very top of the line for laptops and i have yet to experience any slowdowns, lag, or freezing and i put this laptop through its paces with Maya, Photoshop, Illustrator, and Zbrush all running side by side. The hyper-threaded quad core i7 is able to run several large applications at once with out a single hiccup. The 8gb of ram compliments the i7 processor ad allows the computer to process larger amounts of data for things like rendering. The large monitor is always a plus, allowing greater resolutions and a larger viewing area. The sound that this laptop puts out is also great. I have use this laptop to display movies on my TV several times and everyone that watches movies off with me think the sound is from my surround sound system. Anyone that loves gaming or is getting into game design and wants portability should definitely look into this laptop ass it meets most if not all needs hardware wise.
This laptop is huge, but still sleek and stylish. The outer surface of the laptop has a rubberized feel to it and is a matte black color. the inside is very nice with the blue light shining from the bottom edge of the monitor and the lights from the keyboard. These lights are great for using the computer at night. No more need to have the lights on or strain to see the keys while typing at night. Also if you would like to save battery you may turn off the lights. The touch pad is nice looking because its very nicely integrated into the design, but i personally dont like the functionality of it. The seamless left and right mouse buttons are hard to tell which one is being clicked and sometimes i feel like the touch pad doesnt register the movements of my finger correctly. The touch pad is fine for browsing the computer and internet, but subpar for any gaming or design software. Aside from those negatives there is a button that can be used to toggle the touch pad on and off which is very convenient when using and external mouse. Battery life is a little on the low side due to the amount of high power hardware but it does last for about 3 hours in power saver mode.
This computer is simply amazing for most needs. It has essentially 8 cores and comes with pre-installed software that automatically overclocks the processor as needed. The graphics card can handle the newest and most intensive games out there so far which is great for those gamers who love beautiful games. Nice big screen that's great for gaming, movies, design, and everything else. The laptop is a little bulky and heavy but its definitely worth it to have such a beast of a computer be portable. Once again I highly recommend this laptop to anyone who enjoys PC gaming, is going into some sort of design career, or just wants an amazing laptop.
Summary: Just an overall amazng laptop
