I've worked in the IT industry since 1983 and have used or owned many laptops over the years. For personal use, I've always shopped for a "general purpose" machine that will stand-up favorably in any situation. This year, I had to budget something for under $700. That, and the specs of this model led me to my first purchase of an Asus and I'm very satisfied. There's only two things keepimg it from being a 5-star machine... 1) Weak speakers which have to be compensated by using headphones. 2) An irratic touchpad that can "hopefully" be resolved by a future software update. For now though it's compensated by using a mouse.
I had some problem with the staying connected to the internet after buying this but I needed to update the software and since then it's been fine.
