A good four years

Habibuddin A., Newegg
11 August 2015
  • Pros: This was my first laptop I bought a few years ago and it has served me well. I was pleased with the condition, the speed, the storage space and it has been all in all a good four years. I have decided to retire this laptop soon since I need something with more memory, speed and HDD space but it h...
  • Cons: The only things I had issues with was that while viewing a video and listening to it via headphone, I would sometimes have the a crackling noise come from the audio jack. This was rare. The other issue I had was the fact that the screen graphics tended to go fuzzy sometimes.

Best Deal Ever

Anonymous, Newegg
12 November 2011
  • Summary: This is by far the best deal I've ever gotten. Laptops that have these specs usually go for $600. Although people say that the screen flickers, this is no problem as when you update drivers, it will stop. Overall, awesome laptop and runs great, no problems so far.
  • Pros: 6gb RAM 500GB Hard Drive space 2.4 ghx processor (dual core)
  • Cons: None, well they could have included some sort of cloth to clean the screen from dust but that's no reason to deduct an egg. - Battery life is a bit on the short side. ~2 - 3 hours

Wonderful deal

Paul C., Newegg
20 October 2011
  • Pros: Arrived in two days. It is quite fast and runs great. Large keyboard and the keys have a nice feel to them.
  • Cons: I had the flickering line issue that this model seems to be plagued with. As I always do, I re-installed Windows 7 using a disk that can be downloaded from Microsoft. It installed fast and easy. It automatically activated. I then installed the drivers from the Asus global website. All problems so...

Best laptop I've ever used

John D., Newegg
1 October 2011
  • Summary: Like all laptos I've ever owned, Asus pre-installs a tremendous amount of garbage, and I also had those white lines showing up on the screen. No driver updates worked for me to get rid of the lines, so I decided to re-install Win7.
  • Pros: Where to begin.... To get 6GB of RAM and a 500GB Hard Disk at this price is amazing enough. The screen is very nice, too; the video adapter does a great job of redering all video. The camera is very good quality, and the mic picks up sound well. The dual-core Turion is essentially a Phenom II-der...
  • Cons: Initial experience with video corruption, hard disk partitioning, and no backup disk -- see below. Limited BIOS features - cannot change video RAM allocation.

Great Buy

Trevor M., Newegg
23 September 2011
  • Summary: I was considering this or a toshiba I went with this because of its sleekness and thin structure. This is a great machine for multitasking and video replay. I have streamed multiple youtube videos at 1080p no problem at all!
  • Pros: Very sleek looking. Very Fast bootup, multitasking is a walk in the park for this thing!
  • Cons: Finger Gestures (on mouse pad) are inaccurate and hard to use. Screen flickered until I updated drivers using asus driver updater (preinstalled) No more flickering now

GREAT COMPUTER!

Chad Z., Newegg
2 September 2011
  • Summary: Would highly recomend.
  • Pros: Lotsa bang for the buck, sturdy and looks good too. A lot of computer without a premium price tag.
  • Cons: Updating windows was a pain with the preloaded software interfering. But can be done with a little perserverance.

Awesome Laptop, Must have for low budget!

Anonymous, Newegg
26 August 2011
  • Summary: If gamming is your primary purpose I would recomend going with a laptop with better onboard video. Its just lacking a bit in that department. However for a versatile laptop this is the King of Kings. Great for work and some gamming. I would recomend it to all my friends and family.
  • Pros: I was at first hesitent about getting a recertified laptop but I trust newegg and love Asus. After getting the computer it started up and worked up nicely. It does everything that I need it to do and more. I am currently a volunteer youth leader for two different churches and I tend to move arrou...
  • Cons: I really only have two problems with the laptop but not nesscary bad things just something to consider when purchasing it. The battery life could be more. On MAX performance setting it only lasts 2 hours, luckly I am not away for that long from an outlet. I do believe it can go 3 or 4 if the sett...
