Great unit for the price, purchase a spare battery for travel.
4 May 2013
Summary: I must start by saying that this unit was purchased as a refurbished unit and at a make an offer price of $220. For that price it was great deal. The specs are pretty decent for a budget laptop. Build quality is good albeit the case itself feels cheesy. Battery life is terrible at about 2.5-3hrs. max this is where Asus saved the most $ in production, allowing this computer to to be had at a very affordable price.
