Summary: This is an okay computer for the price. My only complaints are that the screen resolution is too low; I can't even match Windows 8's recommended setting, and that it is unbelievably easy to get some tiny crumb or grain of something stuck inside the keyboard, such that it keeps a particular key from working. I have to pop off a key to pull something inconsequential out to get a key working again far too often.
Summary: This is an all-around solid PC that is tough as nails. I bought it for my wife for Christmas and she is very hard on computers. She's had it for about one year and we have never had a single problem with it. It starts up relatively quickly, had been dropped and banged around more than once and it always starts on the first try. We have not had to reboot it or contact customer service at all.
Summary: Got for son going to college. Liked that it had Windows 7 and good basic features for the money. Seemed ok at first. With in a month of using it started to attempt to log off on its own. Continually tries to log off but will not actually do it . Asus cust . service helped with walking us through some steps that got it going, for a couple days.
