Summary: I will NEVER recommend an Asus product to anyone...EVER! I went through three consecutive Asus-manufactured laptops. Refurbished is supposed to be next to brand new (sans new packaging, by law). What I received were three straight up lemons...in a friggin' row!
Summary: I strong recommend don't buy this laptop. The design is very very bad, the temperature increase very fast after few hours using. After I bought it two months, it become thermal shutdown again and again!!!!! It makes me lost lots of important files.
Summary: First of all you get 90 day warranty from manufacture. You can try to register it on their website but it wont allow you because it is a refurbished model. I had no knowledge of that so i called and wrote emails and about week later i get the response.
Summary: This was, quite simply, a lemon. Upon booting the machine up for the first time, I received a BSOD. After restarting a few times I managed to actually get past the log in screen. But it was all downhill from there.
Summary: As some put it getting this is "Refurbished Roulette " for the most part people seem to be getting good systems or they do not know what they are doing, I got one that looks like new and works GREAT. I have had this for two weeks now and as far as gaming goes it is a Beast.
Summary: I just got the machince, it hasn't even been an hour. mine has not a single scratch on it. it's very clean!! the only thing is the dvd drive is cheaply fixed but beyond that, i love it! heats up like a mother load but what would you expect from a beast like this? I got the black one!
Summary: Well i open the box and followed the setup procedures. After i got done with that it needed to restart and when it did it started to BSOD, (Blue screen) For every little thing. I contacted the manufacturer and they said update the bios etc and i did and well the problem did not go away.
