Stay comfortable with IceCool technology
Exclusive ASUS engineering has created a unique internal layout that keeps heat away from palm rests and from users. Always below body temperature, palm rests feel cool to the touch, and are therefore more comfortable to use even during long sessions.

Asus 17' Laptop4/21/2014
The device arrived as promised and without any damage. The first thing I did was Install Windows 8.1 Pro and the standard version of 8.1 doesn't allow joining a domain. All the devices and components worked fine and the machine is very fast. It is a bit heavy but that's to be expected with a 17" laptop. The palm rest seems to have a bit too much give and sometimes acts like the touchpad is clicked. but it could be I am just a bit heavy handed. Our QA Supervisor is the user has no issues.
Very popular 17 screen laptop9/26/2013
It is very good model - based opn price, productivity feature. Comfortable big screen size
One of the top 17" NB9/13/2013
It is a very good laptop. Very big screen, wake up in 2 secs, excellent keyboard, touch-pad is better than touch screen (you won't leave finger prints on the screen, but you can do almost the same thing as touch screen). The only drawback is the OS -- Windows 8. Even it keeps the desktop, but in tile mode, it is slow in switching apps and hard to arrange several windows to view together.
First ASUS purchase, maybe be last.9/5/2013
Three players in this purchase (Rakuten, ASUS and Microsoft). Rakuten: GREAT customer service, response and returned resolution/credit! Initial ad a bit misleading/corrected now (was initially stated: Windows 8 Pro, nope Win8 only). Microsoft: Windows 8 really stinks! I hope they correct this piece of junk. Didn't they run some focus groups or talk to any human factors people?!?! ASUS: Hard drive was constantly spinning (100%), hard drive issue? Extremely slow performance, 30 seconds to launch apps?!?! Overall Sat? 2, because of Rakuten's great customer service/resolution...over-wise 1.
Very good item.8/26/2013
Very nice item.
Asus X75A Great Product5/8/2013
The laptop has a great picture and the keypad is big enough to type comfortably. It is very vast and had no problems detecting any of my equipment or syncing with my internet. Speakers are pretty weak but just use headphones to solve that. Great product and cant beat the price.
