Well, my first laptop, technically. Still, it's new.

Suggestions of what I should do/get with it? I'm thinking a bluetooth mouse and headset would be a good start.

Interesting. I'm still new to touchscreen, let me know how you like it.

 

I've been debating buying/building a new PC this month because it's my 3-paycheck month and I have overtime pay.

 

What made you up and buy a laptop? Do you own a tablet?

Touch screen is nifty, but not terribly useful in a standard laptop design. The only reason I went with it was for the higher resolution. 

 

I bought a Nexus 7 when they first came out, but I haven't had a tablet since then. I bought a laptop because I'm moving to full time consulting work so I need a computer to haul around with me.

Paint it bubblegum pink using automotive paint, give it a nice showroom finish.

They generally make pretty quality stuff. I'm very happy with this one.

Yes.

My Asus monitors, laptop, router, and PC motherboard have all exceeded my expectations.

I recommend Asus.

I didn't even think about it, but my motherboard is an Asus too. 2500k is still running strong in it.

My monitors are LG that I got on a deal, but most of the work monitors I've put in place are Asus. Haven't had one die yet.
