Summary: The laptop arrived today. I purchased the laptop used and got a great deal w/free shipping. Right off the bat I removed the 2 gig memory module and installed a 4 gig Samsung module to give me 8 gigs total. There is one empty memory slot as the other 4 gig is hardwired onto the mobo.
Summary: Ordered not long ago and very disappointed...the laptop didn't even start the very first time. I had to send it to Asus for repair. Now it's working just fine, however it wasn't worth it the whole hussle and the praice I paid for it.
Summary: I was able to do a System restore and the laptop started working again. I'm not happy about the ordeal but I'm glad I didn't have to use a recovery disk. So disregarding the strange failure of the boot drive, I'd say this laptop is fantastic.
