It's OK, but You get what you pay for

K. Frei "the_talon007", Amazon
14 February 2014
  • Summary: I bought the K53E at a local retailer two years ago for about $500 and it has been a great laptop until this week. We don't do much gaming and all of the word processing and the like was done using Google apps. This was used mostly to access the internet, occasionally stream Netflix and store Photos. It was a good thing we had the last backed up to a cloud device because after just two years (almost to the day) the hard drive quit.

It's been such a great little laptop for the price!

Danny Rowe "Danny", Amazon

  • Summary: I didn't expect this little laptop to run Office 2010 Pro very fast, but it performed very well. I didn't expect to set speed records running ArcGIS (heavy duty mapping program) but have successfully ran my mapping business for two years with few hitches, solely off of this laptop. For the price, this little brown laptop has made me an ASUS customer for the foreseeable future.

I would avoid it

Gavin Acevedo, Amazon
13 August 2013
  • Summary: I have worked with computers long enough to understand that a 1.6GHz processor is not all that great, but I figured since it was a gift I couldn't complain, though it was awfully slow even when it was simply trying to pull up Google. I hadn't had it for much longer than 5 months before the computer's screen warped and then it shattered. I was completely frustrated with this horrid excuse for technology.

Great laptop

Janice Gray "Hip Grandma", Amazon
22 July 2013
  • Summary: I researched a lot of different laptops and wanted Windows 7 instead of Windows 8. This one has everything that I wanted and more. The onscreen directions for setting it up were very clear. It's perfect for the home use that I intend to use it for.

Lasted Less Than a Year

N. Oconnor, Amazon
17 June 2013
  • Summary: I knew that this was not going to be the best or fastest laptop but I did expect it to last more than a year. It was very slow from the start and progressively got worse. One day is just stopped working. Asus was of no help. I would do more research and invest a little more money for a better laptop that will last longer.

  • Summary: I bought this for my daughter for Christmas. Quick enough, inexpensive and seems to be of good quality. So far, we are all happy with this purchase and since she is 14, that is a tall order.

A well priced laptop

Mrs. C. Gallagher, Amazon
20 June 2013
  • Summary: This laptop has a nice bright wide screen, and the keyboard is a good size too. I specifically did not want Windows 8 , so chose this laptop based on this fact and its price. It is not the lightest laptop in the world, but is portable. I have no complaints with its speed, but then I only use it for mail and web browsing.
