5.0 out of 5 stars Stylish, slim, ASUS Gaming PC for around $1000, July 24, 2017

This computer is hot stuff. (No it doesn't run too hot)
I had my last computer for 5 years, I built it myself. I didn't want to do that again.
I was considering going with a Dell Alienware for about $1200-$1400 and I just couldn't justify that additional cost. And I'm glad I didn't.

I spotted the ASUS Gr8II series and felt like I had to have one. My custom PC I built with an ASUS MB, so I am pretty fond of the ASUS brand. I looked at Dell as I said earlier, I also considered Lenovo, and MSI brands.
This PC, I have the ASUS GR8 II-T069Z (as some of the reviews are shared among products).
I didn't want a computer with 2 different drives (more to go wrong). I wanted one large SSD. I felt 128GB or 256GB would just be too small after a few years. The 512GB will be plenty big for me, plus I have 1TB of cloud storage through another service.

It does not come with any keyboard or mouse. All of the specification sheets I saw said "optional"... Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars What's Not to Love?, September 17, 2017

Rawhide (Ligonier, PA United States) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I've read every review I could find on this product before purchase, and I could only find these concerns:
1. The fans (actually the air flow) were noisy when running very high end games
2. The video card has 3 GB memory, and is not 6 GB which is available on that specific card
3. While the some upgrading (more RAM) is possible, the video card cannot be upgraded because it is customized for this device
4. Therefore, if you plan to run the next generation of games (especially VR), or a 4k monitor, it may have some limitations
That said, I bought this computer for my current needs, not what I might want to do in the distant future. It is perfect for today's games and office needs. It is virtually silent. It is extraordinarily fast, especially for downloads. It is surprisingly small, and will fit anywhere. ASUS products, in my experience, are very high quality, and this computer is no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars ABSOLUTE BEST MINI PC on the MARKET, at least on AMAZON, June 11, 2017
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am a computer expert, and love great powerful parts in the computer. This computer, specifically the one with the SSD drive and the i7-7700 processor is the best of the PC lineup. The reason you want this machine is that in modern times we have many graphic intensive programs, and even videos. Everything runs perfectly smooth on this PC. This is because the graphics card is one of the top of the line, has enough Ram and speed to satisfy most programs. Next is the handy SSD drive, SSD is about 10-20x faster than regular hard drive in read speeds, so your programs run faster. What this computer does is that it removes any bottlenecks a computer to have, and gives you a well-rounded PC experience, which other manufacturers don't do. I also love the form factor that it takes a lot less space, I was able to fit it in the smallest of spaces. I used to buy laptops with external monitor output because of the limited space as a regular desktop was just way too large. However, laptops don't... Read more
