Asus is crap. Run for the hills.
I still like Dell although some don't, because for anywhere from 1-3yrs. you can buy the warranty that the tech comes to your home to replace parts.
On this machine, I've gotten a new computer one time (they didn't have a mother board for the one I was using) and that happened within a year of owning it - not a big deal, my plug in was loose on the mother board, and boom, I got a brand new machine. AND the warranty restarted since it was new!
I've had the keyboard replaced, the entire area that holds the keyboard replaced, and my son's computer had tea spilled on it and they rebuilt his entire laptop, no questions asked. I'm getting ready to call about my screen which seems to have dirt in behind the screen or else a few dead pixels. They'll send out a new screen I'm sure.
I love love love their warranty and the fact you can get online, message them and they'll send a tech out the very next day.
