Summary: I bought my Asus K52F on clearance at Best Buy for around $500. The only difference between my K52F and the one advertised on this page is a slower Intel processor (P6100 that runs at 2.00GHz). So I won't be factoring it in this review. Even so, I don't have any complaints about the computer's speed as it's very fast even for a multiple browser and tabbing fiend like me. I don't recall my system ever lagging unless I was playing a CPU intensive game.
Summary: now this was a bargin 330 for this asus laptop i wish it had better ram but all said and done i love this laptop it my first laptop and after yrs of wanting one i bought it with my own cash so it feels great the asus laptop was in great condition and still is but since i biught if refubished it didnt come with back up disks other then that i am happy with my buy no craks no dents no dirt it was clean when i got it
Summary: The laptop itself is very well built and is sturdy. It looks stylish and cool but the key board feels very flimsy. Everything works fine and the only con for this laptop other than the keyboard is the battery life. At max charge it lasts about 3 hours at regular use. I don't mind it too much because I' usually stuck to it near a power outlet. Total steal for the price!
Summary: El equipo luce bien, es rapido con una buena capacidad de almacenaje, teclado completo tipo barra de chocolate, cuenta con un teclado numerico, lo cual es excelente si tienes que cargar muchos numeros en tu trabajo, lo unico de que quejarse es que la bateria solo tiene una duracion de +/- dos horas, por lo tanto manten cerca tu adaptador de corriente, pero por los 348$ = costo + el envio y el tax. es una buena compra...
Lovely Price, Beautiful Machine, Extremely Short Battery Life

Summary: I had already decided on a new Asus laptop that cost more than this refurbished one, had a less powerful processor, and less hard drive memory. I stumbled upon this one for just over $300, and I knew I'd better jump on it. The RAM is expandable/upgradeable to 8GB. It came with 3 GB (2 slots, 2GB in one and 1GB in the other). I replaced the 1GB card with a 4GB card for a total of 6GB fairly easily.
Summary: I bought this computer as a floor model from Best Buy almost 6 months ago for $459 and I have to say I've got no major complaints. I primarily bought this for web browsing, Microsoft Office, editing photos in Picasa and my iTunes library. I have had 30 windows open, run iTunes in the background and was typing a document and it could handle it all without lag. I have even run Adobe Photoshop CS3 and it does alright as long as the projects aren't too complicated.
Summary: I hesitate to give a rating of this unit as I've only owned one other laptop, an H/P Presario which lasted 3 years. I've owned my ASUS since October 2010 and it has performed without a hitch, though at the time I bought it I went through 3 other units that were defective right out of the box.
Summary: I got this laptop at a pawnshop. I am SOOO glad I did. I was a little worried about getting a laptop that runs it's video processer through it's CPU, but after loading a few of my games, I found that this laptop is really pretty good! As others have mentioned, the sound is really low based on where Asus put the built in speakers. But I have found that the sound quality improves GREATLY when you plug in headphones or some other speaker device.
Summary: I have had this computer just one day, and the performance is perfect for the money you pay, good so far. NO COMPLAINTS but, there are some weaknesses that i would like to point, first the keyboard is not the best, the arrow keys are small and hide, and it feels a little cheap, I do prefer a central keyboard without numerical keys. Asus should work on the keyboard...

Summary: Great little computer. Fast, not loaded with too much junk. Happy with everything except the speakers on the computer are beneath it and the volume is low. With that combination, you just can't hear movies or music very well if there is any competing noise at all. I solved the problem by getting little speakers (from Amazon) called Chill Pills, and they inexpensively turned my little ASUS laptop computer into a sound powerhouse. Problem Solved.
