Summary: Owned for 3 years, broke many times. Durable, yet to many hardware malfunctions. I've ended up learning how to repair the dc jack because about every 3-8 months of use the dc jack will burn off the solder. If you pay for it be willing to shovel out more than enough for a new motherboard.

8 July 2013
Summary: I've used this laptop since late 2011 and I can't say too much about it being bad about it except for it's battery life. The battery life on it's lowest power savings mode can last from less than 2 hours to less than a half hour on full high powered mode.
Summary: Normally I love ASUS, in fact, my last 4 computer purchases were ASUS, however their support with this product was horrible! Not only did the computer die soon after purchase, but ASUS customer service kept giving me a runaround, and sending me to talk to someone else.

Summary: As far as computing power goes, this is a great product. But I've had serious problems that started less than 7 months into owning it. Problems are 100% in one category. Power. As in the actual power going into the computer. One day, I woke up and turned on my computer. Only it didn't turn on.
Summary: Purchased this laptop for my son and he has had nothing but problems. The computer had to be sent back to the manufacter during the summer. It was not repairable so they sent a new computer after a few months. Now he has it at college, and it doesn't work again. He now has no computer for school.
Summary: 7 months ago I bought this computer, the screen has stopped working and the warranty for ASUS tells me that the overall warranty does not cover countries of Latin America, in conclusion, I lost $ 1000 buying this product .. I would not recommend this brand.
Summary: When I ordered this laptop it was the best Asus I could afford with the features I wanted (Backlit Keyboard). When I received it I was not happy with the size or weight.(Computer or power supply) Well then the disappointments continued, every single promblem that this model has I had..
