I was surprised that Asus wasn’t able to pack a higher quality display into the computer at this price point. The 14″ TN display is running at 1080p but loses image quality quickly if not viewed directly on center.
The biggest problem we had on this one was how often it crashed when we were stressing the hardware during our gaming tests and benchmarks. While these machines are not designed specifically for gaming we were surprised how unstable it was even with games that run fine on competing computers with the same hardware.
In a few days we’ll look at a similar computer from Acer that has a better build quality along with an IPS display that costs about $40 less.
