Easy setup but you need to do a few things to optimize it
15 February 2013
Summary: Ready to go out of the box with the exception of long shutdown or no shutdown on the computer I received. Therefore, I had to optimize it a bit meaning that I had to go to msconfig and troubleshoot (just unchecking some boxes) the programs and services which automatically start on the computer. If you have this issue with shutdown, then I would recommend you do an internet search on this issue and you will find a number of explanations on how to do it.
Summary: I was searching the sale papers for an affordable notebook computer. When I saw one of interest I checked online for a better price. Amazon was the place. I found the computer that my family wanted at a great price! This laptop was the perfect choice for us. The Asus Mocha serves all of our needs.
Summary: I was expecting a lot less for the money. It is fast enough to be sure. The USB 3.0 and the front facing card slot make this a versitle machine. I did order an additional 4Gb of RAM for the extra headroom. I'm using it primarily for field use for my photos, although I have edited video as well. (Photoshop and Premiere) It did take a few days to get comfortable with the multi-touch pad sensitivity and functions. That is so far the only thing that has been of concern.
Summary: I bought this laptop to replace my 4 year old Dell that was falling apart. I have had it for a month now and am loving it. My only issues are with the keyboard. It is tricky to get used to the shift key, so I fail to capitalize words at times and need to do some extra proof reading. I know this is something I just need to get used to, so it is not a large concern at all. The battery life is great!
Summary: I am very pleased with my purchase. This pc is great! Easy to use. I looked at other pc's and kept going back to this one. I read the reviews about each one I looked at. I decided to go with this one. I don't regret it. The price was great and so is the pc. I am so glad I bought this one. It is fun to use and I love using it. I would recommend this to anyone.
Summary: This is a great laptop for its price. Pros: Excellent specs (RAM, Hard Drive, Video Card), it comes with one 3.0 USB, decent material quality, light, price, amazing heat control (never gets hot), not prone to get fingerprints, perfect screen size, decent resolution, solid keyboard. Cons: battery life it is not the best, speakers are NOT loud at all. Sometimes problems reading the disc unit... could be a software issue, touchpad not the best.
Summary: The laptop is OK given its price point. My biggest problem is the DVD R/W door won't close. This happens 4 days after it arrived. Very very disappointed!!! And I was planning to take this laptop for my traveling that will commence 1 day after the problem first occurred.
