i purchased this model last week to replace my older sony vaio laptop. I like the speed of this laptop. Although the screen is 15.6 inches, it seems large and is great to use. The adaptive brightness feature which is set to 'on' by default is annoying and causes the screen todim and brighten incessantly. had best buy turn it off since I couldn't open the setting under power options. Once that was done. The screen stopped with the dimming issue and is perfect for my use. I also disabled the backlit keyboard that made the keys hard to read. Now that it's disabled, I like the keyboard and don't make so many errors.
I'm still trying to decide if I should exchange this for an airbook. The more I use it, the more I like it. However, windows 8.1 is annoying. I never use the charms or tiles. In fact, I installed some software that brought back the the windows start button that I liked in Windows 7. I think I like this fast and powerful laptop/tablet. I haven't used the tablet option yet. And the touchscreen comes in handy. All in all, it's a great tablet.

To turn on/off the adaptive brightness you simultaneously hit FN+A.

There is a manual on the hard drive that details this and should be listed under the Asus programs on your hard drive.
