Summary: Still using this laptop now as I type this 4 years later. Getting ready to get a new laptop in August so my daughter has laid claim to this computer.Works like a champ with Windows 8.1 though for the webcam I still have to use a Windows vista driver in order for the webcam image not to be upside...
Summary: The asus k601 works great and the processing of programs is pretty good. The downside of it was that it only has 4 usb slots, there are no ieee(firewire), pci slots, etc that alot of other laptops come with. I wanted to use it in video editing but cannot due to the lack of inputs/outputs.
Summary: I had this computer for about 20 minutes before it gave me it's first "blue screen of death". First, it was a memory management problem, then it was a hardware problem, then it was a software problem...by day 3 of ownership, the computer would just no longer start up!
Summary: I bought this laptop for 379 brand new 2 years ago at christmas and it was the first laptop i owned. I loved it but now that im into games, I am trading this toyota for a corvette :)haha. For the price as in 379 you just cant beat it.
Summary: The first one I got had major issues and I sent it back and got a new one....this one after 6 months had motherboard issues.....sent it back and now its working like a champ.....I am a massive gamer and although its not neccesarily a gaming pc,,,it has done its job and then some for me...
Summary: I love this computer. Yes you have to get rid of a few things when you first get the computer, but it's definitely worth it. Take a couple hours to get it just the way you like it and after that just turn on and go!
Caveat Emptor! Nice PC but didn't work long. UPDATE
5 May 2011
Summary: UPDATE 8/2/2011. Went ahead and got return authorization from ASUS service center. A week and a half after sending it out it arrived back on my front porch repaired at no charge. No loss of data or OS settings. They changed out the motherboard and battery. Outstanding service.
Summary: Laptop was charged after delivery then booted up. Immediately there was a clicking noise from inside the laptop. Finished the initial boot and setup then downloaded updates. When the laptop rebooted the hard drive crashed. All this in less than 4 hours of ownership.

Summary: It's been 2 months since I purchased the Asus K60I as a refurbished unit without a scratch. It's been a challenge getting used to Windows 7. But everything seems to run smooth. So far it's been good. I got it for a steal ($375). I love the size of the hard drive and it has lots of memory (4GB).
