      Comments about Asus N550 Dark Gray Laptop Computer:

      I have no complaints about this computer. It may not be the lightest computer on the market, but for the larger screen size it isn't all that hard to tote it around. Certainly not back breaking in the least. I replaced the hard drive with a solid state drive so I can't comment on how fast it would be with the normal drive, but with the solid state this thing flies and is silent. It has a very clear and sharp screen that can be seen from many angles quite clearly. The keyboard is easy to use and has a nice hand rest area in front. The number pad is a little on the small side, but is still quite functional and I use that a lot for work related use. The touch screen capability is perfect and I use it probably more often than the touchpad. The battery life is also very good as well. I have used the computer on just battery power for several hours and still have life left. Just make sure to use power saving settings whenever you can to prolong the battery life even more. I haven't had to use customer service at all so can't comment on how well they support the device. All in all this is a great computer.

        Comments about Asus N550 Dark Gray Laptop Computer:

        I purchased this Asus as an all-purpose home PC, with enough speed and memory for photo and video editing. I love the touchscreen from a convenience standpoint. Screen resolution and graphics are tops for the price point - I would say a 4 out of 5 overall. The screen is not true HD, but I've watched a few movies (both streaming and from DVD) and I don't notice any lack of quality.

        The computer was pretty easy to upgrade. I replaced the HDD with a 250GB Samsung SSD, and it boots everything ridiculously quick - Windows boots in about 10 seconds, shuts down is about 5 seconds, Adobe light room boots in about 3 seconds, all of my games boot quickly as well. I also added 8GB of RAM. Most laptops come with two 4GB sticks to save money, but this laptop comes with one 8GB stick standard.

        The touch pad clicking isn't great, and took a little bit to get used to. There is a lot of multi-finger functionality that makes it easy to scroll and switch programs and screens.

        Keyboard is fine, but wish they had bumps on the WASD keys for gaming. Full number pad is great.

        Sounds quality is nice. It comes with an external sub-woofer which definitely improves sound quality, but is also slightly inconvenient. The headphone jack has been sensitive with my headphones, but this might be a problem with headphones and not the jack - don't know.

        Processor speed is fantastic. Graphics card is also very fast for graphics rendering and decent for gaming. There are better gaming options, but not for the price. If you are a casual gamer - this is fine.

        Overall, I am extremely happy with my choice. The drawbacks are minimal, and I would buy this again.

        Comments about Asus N550 Dark Gray Laptop Computer:

        This laptop is extraordinary for the price. I use it as my main computer as a soon-to-be college student. It handles cutting-edge games on medium at native resolution and older games on high/ultra at native resolution. The touchscreen is fantastic - Windows 8 just doesn't make sense without it. Haven't had the chance to thoroughly test battery life, but it will definitely last for at least 3-4 hours without gaming, which is pretty good given the hardware that this laptop is running.

        I would highly recommend putting an SSD in this laptop because the hard drive it comes with is pretty slow. I swapped out the hard drive for the Samsung 840 Evo 120GB SSD since the connection in that bay is a SATA III connection, and swapped out the DVD Drive for the original hard drive. Don't put the SSD in the DVD drive bay - it is only a SATA II connection, which would eliminate any speed boosts from the SSD. The performance boost is well worth the effort, and it's an easy upgrade to do if you do the research.

        I highly recommend this laptop - it's most likely the best purchase available at this price if you are looking for a multimedia laptop that can handle the latest games.
