Summary: As I sit here trying to figure out why my hard drive crashed (again) and how I am going to get my software and files off of it, I thought I would take the time to warn others to avoid this laptop at all costs. I have had mine for two years and it has been a problem since day one. Now I can only load windows in the safe mode and that is even a crap shoot. Of course my back up discs are at home and I am on the road. I am about to throw it in the pool.
Excerpt: I got this ASUS as a replacement to a lemon Dell that I had been using for about a year. It has been a year and a half and I'm still liking this computer better. It's reliable and fast for most uses. The only thing I've had happen to it is that the screen got a crack in it when my kid used it, I still don't know how he did it.
Summary: The experience has been mixed, issues wiith freezing and other minor stuff. Does not compare to an Apple but I didn't expect it to. Ingeneral a good buy and performs well, I'm just not overly excited. I'd look at the new Ultra and will may try it. Price was good and arrived on time.
Asus K0IJ Laptop makes up for every other laptop I've endured.

Excerpt: If you are like me, you always want the convenience of a laptop but continue using a clunky desktop because of cost and quality. Every laptop that I've been forced to endure by my company in the past had made me unwilling to even consider a laptop for home. I realized I really wanted the portability and convenience of a laptop.
