Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good performance for the price, although I did double the RAM and swap the hard disk out for a bigger one straight away to suit my own requirements.
Bad points:
Windows 8. Oh dear. Hopeless for low-speed internet connections and power users: possibly a bit insulting even. Finally managed to make it work like a desktop OS. Not sure if it might have been better to wipe it and install 7 instead.

Ed, Sheffield General home user

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Asus have delivered an "Ivy Bridge " processor at a competitive price point along with a very decent build quality ! Good overall performance and a dedicated Nvidia graphics card help this unit deliver a reasonable frame rate for those who want to play a few of the less demanding games out there ! Overall a very capable laptop that has also won PC Advisor high ratings in its' annual awards !
Bad points:
A 7200 rpm hard disk would have helped things along a bit .......but it is still a very good buy and will not disappoint !
