An all round amazing laptop probably have had it for just over a month now, I was being very picky when it came to purchasing my second laptop, I'd had a Dell laptop for just over 6 years so it was pretty hard to compete, I bought a Lenovo Flex 2 which was more expensive then the Asus and I returned it within the same week, the screen and sound quality were poor, I'm noone technical but I know what I need and want from a laptop, decent storage space, good quality speakers and screen and an overall fast easy to use laptop, this delivered. The sound is better than my dell laptop my brother thought I was playing music from my stereo speakers but no it was this laptop! you can hear the bass and there's no tinny sound at all, the screen quality is great really bright screen and I luckily got a good deal I got the Core i7 for £420 because the laptop had a minor scratch, I would definitely recommend if your going to buy any laptop get at least Core i5 or above, no faults at all really I'll just write a few pros and cons
Pros - Great battery life around 5 hrs, Amazing sound, Great bright screen, Doesn't overheat (only makes slight sound when disk is being used), Fast and easy to use, built in Disk/CD drive and a pretty light weight laptop too.
Cons - No led backlight keyboard, Windows 8 (need I say more, but windows 10 out soon so can upgrade for free!), Getting used to touchpad is a bit annoying because it doesn't have separate keys for left and right click but most laptops are like that nowdays (also the zoom in and out feature on touchpad is a little annoying too but you'll get used to it)
Great laptop, will update if I have any issues but highly doubt it, really really pleased I'm always hesitant to spend this much on a laptop but it's well worth it, if anyone has any questions i'll happily answer!
