Summary: Bought as a replacement to one that had been stolen. Although a refurbished laptop, couldn't have been more delighted with it. Arrived when stated & packed well. Looked like new . Easy to use & my son loves it. Windows 8 not a problem for him as he uses it at school. Using a wireless mouse with it, it is so smooth. Battery life seems good & graphics so much better than his 'stolen' Samsung. Would certainly recommend supplier & Asus laptop.
Summary: Great laptop. Nice quick processor and graphics card means it can core with my 3d cad work. Good sound too. Hate windows 8 - a touch screen tablet operating system on this? Crazy. Hardly the computer's fault tho and I've managed to bolt on a win 7os.
Summary: A seriously decent laptop. We usually pay around £300-350 for laptops, but due to the great reviews decided to spend a little more. The difference is vast, the laptop is super quiet, fast and feels quite solid. Would definitely recommend.
Summary: Great value for money: I opted for amazon.co.uk because in my country the same model costs a lot more. The laptop is quite right for everyday use (I do multimedia, productivity and a bit of Java programming in Eclipse). For gaming, I have another rig. After ditching Windows 8 for Fedora 18, every task is accomplished in a breeze and all hardware is supported out of the box (except the Nvidia card which is supported by bumblebee).
Summary: I read the reviews before purchasing this laptop. I was a bit dubious as they were all 5 stars. The laptop arrived today. It looks fantastic. The keyboard has excellent keys which sort of bounce up after pressing which is good. The lettering is large on them which i particularly like. This laptop is quick and responsive. Really crisp and clear sound.
