Good Buy

 

The computer is very functional. It was the best thing I could find in the price range that had the side number pad and that was what was most important to me. It is bigger and heavier than I would have liked.

Great laptop if you don't mind the size

 

This Asus laptop is really nice for the pricetag it currently has. My only con to it is that it's a little too big for me and I went ahead and purchased a smaller one. If your used to using a laptop that's 15.6' then this laptop would be perfect for you
