I think that will run it fine. Asus is a really trustworthy brand. And I love their laptops. Specs look solid, should definetly play far cry 3

Overall, it's very good. The one weakness is a small hard drive. Are you saying, below, that it's solid state? If so, it'll be fast and far less likely to fail. But hard drives now (even in laptops) are more in the range of 500-750 GB. However, I'm not really sure you need all that space, unless you'll be downloading and saving lots of videos. The process is very good. That's a lot of memory. The graphics should be fine. A lot of people don't like Windows 8, but it is what it is--not much you can do about it.

Hope that helps.

It should do okay. my one drawback would be that it

has windows 8. Also I would like to see 750 or a 1 TB

hard drive. But for what you're using it for It will probably

be just fine. Maybe you will have good luck with windows 8.

This spec should be blisteringly quick. 10GB RAM is a hell of a lot, and the i7 is an awesome processor, coupled with a great video card. The SSD hard drive will help it to boot up in seconds. The downside is that 250GB is a bit limiting, but that's the trade off. If you want more hard drive capacity you'll need a mechanical hard drive which would be slower.

Personally I wouldn't trust Windows 8 yet. It hasn't been in the field long enough to have the bugs squashed and the holes patched. See if there's an option from the vendor to "downgrade" to Win7.

B.T.W. The ZenBook has no optical (DVD/CD) drive. If you are installing your game from a disk you will also need an external DVD drive attached to a USB port.
