Summary: This was the first laptop I purchased, and I will never buy an Asus again. This laptop (and Asus customer service) has caused me so much aggravation. About 6 months after I bought it, it wouldn't charge correctly. I had to strategically place the cord so it would charge (which caused the wire to break from being bent so much). So I call Asus and tell them the problem and tell me to send in the charger for a replacement.
Summary: Good general use laptop. I use it for personal and job applications. Very good construction and materials. Excellent motherboard, CPU and very big HDD 640Gb (mine). Very low temperature rising, even with multiple programs running. Almost perfect ASUS internet support. It is a pity that does not have Bluetooth ability, neither a USP3.
Summary: I bought this laptop last year and since that time I used it on external TV, it's really got good picture with HDMI and hold good amount of charge, We use it everyday. i bought used like new for cheap price and it was new for me, really clean with stickers and the everything.
Summary: Bought this as a birthday present for my daughter. She did not want anything with windows 8. I shopped everywhere for the best deal and found this Asus in the used section. It was an open box, not used, so I ordered it, they shipped that same day. No shipping charges, no tax, received it in 3 days. Opened it up, turned it on, transfered files, ... she loves it, and I'm a hero!
