Pretty nice machine

on 6/28/2013

This is a nice looking notebook, fairly light and with a good size keyboard. Asus didn't bloat it up too much which is nice. Windows 8 really is pretty annoying without a touchscreen and even more so if you are just using the touchpad rather than a mouse, but that's just Win8. For such a low power chip, I'm surprised at how often the fan comes on, I'd say that's my one quibble. Also haven't got into the BIOS, it seems pretty locked down. For the money, I think it's a nice little machine.
