Great little computer...

Has latest advanced features of more expensive tablets and laptops
The tablet works fast and syncs with the keyboard very well
Great speed
Amazing color and graphics
It is very small so it can fit in any place. I have it sit right on my monitor stand and fit perfectly. I built my own custom PC for gaming or other heavy task. I didn't want to have huge tower sittin
10.1" is a it small for Windows 8

Cannot recommend Asus because of lousy support for their brand new product...

Purchased this small footprint computer 31 days ago and the computer itself works wonderfully. However, the wireless optical mouse that came with it is eating batteries at the rate of two every 36 hou
Great deal, great monitor
Price
Bang for your buck
Love the Shuttle boxes, use them for everything
Asus customer support is atrocious Asus will not stand behind a product that has been in use for less then 1 month and are refusing to replace the defective mouse that is worth less then 10
Ssd would make it better of course
The description says it uses 2 x 260Pin SO-DIMM DD 4 2133", but the actual motherboard uses full-size 288-pin DD 4 DRAMs. This cost me almost 150 in buying the wrong memory, that I have to try to get
And the pins that hold the heatsink down to the motherboard weren't installed, and one of them got bent, and didn't want to hold together properly, though I took it all apart and straightened it out.
Sigh
