Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I have no problem downloading internet pages as I did with my 10year old Dell. Windows 8.1 is ok, I'm getting used to it and keep finding lots of good things.
Bad points:
No written manual. Quick set up shows you how to turn the computer on but there is no instructions on How to turn it OFF.

Ian, Belfast General user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Extremely fast startup. By the time I turn on the wireless mouse, the monitor and then sit down in my chair it's ready. It's actually faster than my Android tablet at startup. And that's without an SSD (just the standard Toshiba HDD).
Very quiet. Little more than a hum.
Strong Wifi, can pick up a good signal when my old PC struggled due to being so far from the router.
Bad points:
A bit hard to find the buttons. The On switch is not obvious until you find it and I could not see how to open the DVD door. It turns out you just press the panel at the right hand side but there is absolutely no button or marker.
And Windows 8 is weird (not ASUS's fault). Despite considerable experience with UI's I still get lost the odd time.

Jean, Cardigan My husband uses it

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Does what it says on the packet
Bad points:
None really. I'm nearly 90 and the only problem is having to learn a new set up Windows 8 which I have found very difficult but that's not the PCs fault.

Manufacturer's Description

Enjoy fast, hassle free home computing with the Asus ESSENTIO M11AA Desktop PC.

Work with Windows
Windows 8 has been specifically designed to be powerful yet intuitive to use.

All your programs and apps are easily accessed via Live Tiles located on the vivid new Start screen and can be customised exactly as you see fit.

Live Tiles aren’t just program icons, they display important information and alerts from your favourite software directly on the home screen, meaning you don’t have to open the program to check Facebook alerts, emails, news reports and many others.

Searching your computer has never been easier. Simply begin typing the name of the file, songs, email sender, program or anything else you need and Windows will find it before you can finish the title – perfect for finding work documents or misplaced downloads.

There are improvements coming to Windows 8 with the launch of the free 8.1 update. These include the reintroduction of the Start button, new Live Tile sizes and adjustable four-way multi-tasking windows along with developments to the lock screen, search and more.

Intel processing
You can expect responsive computing whatever you do thanks to the Intel® Core™ i5-3330S processor. From everyday browsing to coping with intense workloads, you can rely on the i5-3330S thanks to its impressive 3.2 GHz clock speed.

Multitasking is aided by 4 GB of RAM and helps the processor to provide quick computing throughout your daily activities.

Spacious storage
File storage is provided by a spacious 500 GB hard drive. With enough room for your files, media and software, you needn’t worry about running out of space anytime soon.

Backing up to external storage is simple too thanks to the USB 3.0 ports. With far faster transfer speed than previous generations, USB 3.0 makes light work of copying important files to external hard drives.

Make the most of your media
The ESSENTIO features Asus SonicMaster audio technology, which provides improved sound clarity across right the board. From films to games and music, you can expect impressive audio quality and options.

Your media will look its best too courtesy of full high definition support; simply connect an HDMI cable between the desktop and the monitor or TV of your choice to enjoy 1080p computing.

Confident computing
Asus Cool’n’Quiet technology ensures lower internal running temperatures, letting the PC’s components run more efficiently and with less strain. This helps to improve the longevity of the processor and other components as well as reducing the cooling fan noise for a quieter computing experience.

Wireless connectivity
Getting online is simple thanks to the integrated WiFi adapter while you can stay comfy while working with the supplied wireless mouse and keyboard.

Quick and well appointed, the Asus ESSENTIO M11AA Desktop is the perfect PC for any home.
