Excerpt: We have supplied a number of these computers for use with our jet engine assembly software. They are small enough to be treated like laptops, a great asset for field maintenance work, yet have two serial ports to connect to peripheral equipment without the use of USB-to-Serial converters. And they run on W7.
Summary: First, let me say the Amazon retailer was more than great--they took off an additional $25 when they found out that this came without a keyboard and mouse. That being said- it is a refurb. From the other reviewers, I couldn't see a new purchase. The one I got was heavily ground-taped, even on the vent holes on the back so I guess that's why its hot on top. Maybe that's why the USB ports didn't work for one reviewer---incomplete ground.(?). I couldn't resist--I opened it.
Summary: I had high hopes for this as an inexpensive POS all-in-one. The touch screen shattered that possibility. The screen failed on 3 out of different machines within about a month. It started off OK, but after continued use, several areas of the screen lost sensitivity to the point where you had to tap very hard with a fingernail or other hard "stylus". I was very surprised, as ASUS is a go to brand for me (and my clients).
Summary: Awful in decently lit conditions, you can't see anything on the screen. And the USB ports are underpowered. I was using it for a POS in a retail setting, if the sun was out my employees couldn't see the screen. AND, the computer couldn't power my USB credit card swiper. I It was a waste for me, but I'm sure it would be good for some applications.
Summary: I use it as POS terminal. The sensitivity of touch screen is mediocre. parts of screen are more sensitive of the other parts and the points which are frequenty used lost sensitivity and you must press firmly to make it working. For me a bad exprience!
Summary: I purchased 3 of these a few days ago from Amazon SPAIN and NOT ONE came with an operating system - this is a complete and utter rip off. Amazon should be ashamed to sell this product and LIE to thier customers!!!!
