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: 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: 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.
Summary: I just got this right out of the box to see nothing but a blank screen at the boot-up. I never even got a chance to see the visual prowess that this machine has. Hard to review much of anything when I'm working blindly. Returning this $900 paperweight immediately.
Summary: I was so excited when I received the laptop after two days. However, awful things happened: 1, the win7 system didn't work, it couldn't start 2, the voice of fan was loud. come on, it was a laptop not a car. 3, the CD-ROM wasn't fixed very well.
