Summary: This laptop is purely a piece of s***. My brother had brought it for himself, but never used it so he decided to give it to me. I never heard of Asus before he gave me this laptop and I'm always skeptical of electronics which I've never heard the name of before. I saw disaster happening and that's exactly what this laptop is, a disaster. It's a piece of shit and always crashes. I use it mainly for web browsing and that's all.
Summary: I bought my Asus K52F on clearance at Best Buy for around $500. The only difference between my K52F and the one advertised on this page is a slower Intel processor (P6100 that runs at 2.00GHz). So I won't be factoring it in this review. Even so, I don't have any complaints about the computer's speed as it's very fast even for a multiple browser and tabbing fiend like me. I don't recall my system ever lagging unless I was playing a CPU intensive game.
Summary: We bought this computer 17 months ago. It is now completely useless unless we spend $180 on fixing the lcd cable. We use this computer about 2 hours a week for streaming. Talking with Asus they have refused to help us in anyway. I will never buy an asus computer again.
Summary: I purchased this laptop in April 2011. In December 2011 it crashed and luckily I had purchased a one year Geek Squad repair contract so it was fixed. It had to be restored back to original condition so I lost everything that had been stored on it. Nothing major as I do back up important things but still a hassle. Now two days ago it totally died (October 2012) and will not turn on. I now am purchasing another laptop in less than two years.
Summary: now this was a bargin 330 for this asus laptop i wish it had better ram but all said and done i love this laptop it my first laptop and after yrs of wanting one i bought it with my own cash so it feels great the asus laptop was in great condition and still is but since i biught if refubished it didnt come with back up disks other then that i am happy with my buy no craks no dents no dirt it was clean when i got it
Summary: I purchased the computer in January of this year. The connection for the charger on the computer got lose by July and was unable to charge the battery. We asked repair. We needed to send the product to Asus, wait for the product to come back for 2 weeks. When we received the computer back, we noticed that the original problem was repaired, but half of the keys on the keyboard do not work.
Summary: I should have taken this piece of bad hardware back when I had the chance. I've had to restore it 4 times with the restoration disks I burned the first time I fired it up. The hard drive keeps on freezing, the user profiles won't load, and now the network adapter isn't working! Don't look to much at the specs because they are not all that they are cut out to be.
Summary: My k52 has cracked/broken hinge and screen frame, and the cheap thin cover over the heat sink fins. It had lines apear and disappear magically, then two weeks later it wont even start or charge. I have sent it back to ASUS. Let's see what I get back. Other than those issues, the cpu, ram ect made it o.k fast. I bought it on QVC and wouldn't do it again. Still waiting for it to come back.........

Summary: hello I bought this computer, beacause I had good references with respect to asus , I had been a dell client for several years, but I decide to change , because the dell customer service and guarante now is terrible bad. The asus is a good machine and the price is convinient , but some details ARE REALLY DISCUSTING , SUCH AS THE SOUND , IS TO LOW AND YOU CANT NOT HEAR IT OR UNDERSTAND IF SOMEBODY IS SPEAKING , BESIDES THAT THE QUALITY OF THE SOUND IS POOR , IT IS VERY...
