Summary: I have owned this laptop for about a year and a half and shortly after the first year the bios crashed completely after changing the boot order. With a little research I have discovered this line of laptops has a history of the bios dying after a system update.
Screen Resolution is Horrible! Worse than my 5-year-old Gateway. Yuck!
10 February 2014
Summary: Terrible on the eyes! Why in the world a technology company would invest in a good-quality processor (i7) and a solid, attractive case-design and build, only to then "cheap out" on the screen resolution (768p) is beyond logic. This computer has the fuzziest presentation of text imaginable.
Summary: I visited multiple stores but could not find the item needed for my Purposes which was an asus laptop with windows 7. I searched, found and ordered the correct item i was looking for Which was an asus laptop with windows 7.
Summary: Very disappointed! windows 8 is useless and this system does NOT allow a downgrade. There are some work arounds, but personally, I would not go through the trouble for something that may or may not work.
Summary: I have had this computer since March and have had to call tech service six times for the same reason pointing device freezes up. Each time they try to fix the problem by resetting everything w2hi h means I have to reinstall all of my stuff. Pain in the rear.
Keyboard issues from start and downhill from there.....
4 May 2013
Summary: For 25 yrs. or so, my husband and I have only owned Dell and Toshibas for ourselves and Macs for our now-adult kids. We've had high satisfaction across the board yet saw this sleek-looking, light weight Asus in Best Buys (Windows 8) on sale for $529 and decided to try something new.
Summary: This seemed like it would be a great computer for the price. I ordered one, received it, but the screen never lit when it was turned on. I returned it for another and the next one worked fine except that the DVD/CD drive did not work. I returned that for a refund.
Product feels cheap and acts cheap and impossible to get tech support

Summary: Title says it all. I need a reliable machine and this is not it. Everything feels cheap about this laptop. Keys, hypersensitive cursor, feel of plastic - God knows what's inside. After one day (and the expense of downloading Office), the machine has totally frozen up. I can't even force shut-down.
Don't buy a laptop from Amazon---especially not an ASUS

Summary: I have had this machine a little more than 2 weeks. From the beginning, there have been start-up and shut down failures. Asus has guided me through multiple hard resets and BIOS resets and now says I probably have a virus.
