Advantages: - Good sound from the built-in speakers. - Convenient "island" keyboard. - Windows 7 (64bit) - I do not like Windows 8. - Normal viewing angles. - Light and thin enough. - Price - purchased in December 2013 for 16 thousand rubles.

Disadvantages: - Only 2 USB ports (plug in the mouse and the USB flash drive, that's all, get out the rest). - These 2 USB ports are located so close to each other (although perhaps this is a standard distance) that sticking a mouse into one port and a USB modem (say, megaphone) at the same time into another port - they interfere with each other, thus skewing and mouse connector, and modem connector - do you need to fence a USB extension cable? for example for a modem, so as not to abut each other. - Both USB on the left side - the wired mouse is inconvenient to connect. - Power ON / OFF button right above the "Escape" key (when you press Escape, you can easily get to OFF, although the power button is recessed and has a tight turn). - Pre-installed cloud utilities from ASUS. - Pre-installed McAfee antivirus, for which you have to completely remove sweat (it is not enough just to uninstall - you need to download a special utility from the MacAfe site to completely remove the antivirus). - Unpublic arrangement of the buttons with arrows (arrow "to the right" on the num-pad). - Both touchpad buttons are incredibly loud. - Indistinct visualization of changes in volume, brightness on the screen (as a segment of a circle with a risk, it is not completely clear) - The installation of “native” drivers on the GeForce GT 720M video card doesn’t have any effect on the index of laptop performance evaluation - what’s wrong with them, what is solid 6.5 without them.
Comment: The laptop is not bought for myself, but as a gift to my sister. He stayed with me for 4 days. I installed everything necessary and sufficient on it, flooded it with music, films. In any powerful toys did not play. I think my sister for Odnoklassniki, Office, YouTube and other web surfing is more than enough. The price is 16 thousand rubles. for such a configuration, I consider it quite reasonable for the New Year’s eve.
