Summary: this computer remains very cool even when i play game such as garrysmod on full settings. it runs windows 7 slow but most of that problem is that windows sucks. i run Linux and it is awesome. the display is very bright and colorful. the finger pad is a little sensitive at first but that is overcome in time.
Summary: I bought my asus back in 2009. Its been the best computer ever. Dont believe those horrible reviews from people. The battery lost me all day with the settings at maxiumum power. The asus has been fantastic. I am very sad because I caught my cat laying on the monitor. I turned it on and the pic is messed up. Shes a big cat. I found that asus has cheap replacement parts too.If i could reccomend this laptop to people I would. I would defend the asus name.
Summary: i love my computer,this is an amazing laptop. my son wipe the last one out. i had been telling my husband that i wanted a laptop. well the guy at bestbuy said this was one of the best. i've been to some of the other stores and nothing had the WOW factor for the price i needed.i'm still playing with it but everything is at my finger tips.well let me get back to playing with it.
Summary: I bought this laptop to install Ubuntu 10.10 and it worked like a champ! Everything installed fine and works perfectly out of the box--including things like 3D acceleration, laptop keyboard functions, and other things that can sometimes be a pain in Ubuntu. The only problem I have with it is that the webcam was installed upside-down; Asus "fixed" this by installing a special driver in Windows that flipped it back, but there's no apparent way to do this with Ubuntu.
Summary: Just received it. I consider the price in this review. I am a frugal shopper and a bit of a techy -- I'll be putting a Linux partition on it. $365 delivered, refurb -- no signs of why it was refurbished. I've never owned an ASUS so far I really really like it. Touch pad is a bit touchy -- :-) -- but slick in that it is integrated into the body. The two finger scrolling and three finger menu is nice but the pad will take some getting used to.
Summary: We bought two of these for our granddaughters for Christmas and it turned out to be just what they wanted and needed. They have been using them every day for schoolwork and for things in general. They are completely satisfied with with the way they are able to search the internet and the speed of downloading. According to computer people that we talked to before the purchase, this make of PC is one of the best on the market.
