Summary: Good processing power, great battery life, and really good laptop speakers - I actually use this as a music player in my living room most evenings. Screen resolution is excellent, the LED backlit display is clear and snappy. I would love it if this was a quad core, but I was actually surprised at the processing speed that this delivers as well. All in all, Asus has done a great job with this one.
Summary: I bought this laptop used from a seller on Amazon about four months ago, and it has well exceeded my expectations. In fact, this laptop has replaced my aging desktop altogether, even before I added another RAM stick for a total of 8 GB. Pros: The Intel i5-3230M processor (2.60 GHz) is extremely quick, compared to my desktop's Core 2 Quad (2.67 GHz) and my older laptop's Core 2 Duo (2.33 GHz).
Summary: This laptop is great for it's i7 processor in such a low price. After I get, I upgraded it's memory to 16G and replace the HDD with SDD. it runs fast. The merit of Asus's laptop: Asus is good at thermal design, the laptop is cool and low noisy. I compaird with somes level laptop with quad-core i7 from DELL SONY Acer, ASUS is better than them.
Summary: I was told that Asus, although an underdog to the typical, HP, Dell and Apple, was a good buy and worthy computer brand. It has been right. I love my Asus, and I love the way it works. The windows 8 is different as far as navigation, but I like it. The computer works wonderfully. More than enough power to hold my programs. I use power point, word, excel, photoshop, and AutoCAD and this computer doesn't miss a beat!
Summary: As the owner of an old ASUS UL80jt laptop, I wanted to go with another ASUS. I had my eye on a computer similar to this one for a while, but when my old laptop died about 6 months ago, I couldn't wait any longer for the price to drop so I purchased this one. I was excited to receive it, and my excitement didn't diminish when the laptop arrived and I booted it up. My first impression was that it was incredibly fast compared to my old one.
