Laptop is great, battery life/charger istelf not so great
19 December 2013
Summary: The laptop runs fine, a little laggy with some stuff but its bearable. The real problem is the battery life, about an hour at most. Plus after 5 months the charger just died on me, so I contacted asus support to get a replacement, which is a nightmare so I just ended up ordering a new charger on amazon, it will be here in a couple days and I'll follow up. Not happy with the battery/charger.
Great for the price, especially if buying refurbished. Asus does it again.

Summary: 12/8/13 Alright. The reviews here on Amazon were the main reason I went with this choice over other options, so I wanted to add a little more that I didn't see covered (mainly buffer/download times and League specs). Believe, me, you will love this computer. Keep in mind, whenever you're looking at internet-based usage of a computer your internet and router can have a great influence (if you have crappy internet you won't be able to run certain things well, doesn't...
Summary: I really liked the laptop but screen kept shutting off when the laptop was lifted, it didn't seem to handle movement very well. When the screen shut off, I couldn't turn it back on unless I rebooted by pressing on the power button for few seconds.Sound was great until I heard a rattling noise from the speaker like it was blown. Lots of hardware issues, had to return. settled with a different laptop. Asus customer service was great!
Summary: I just wanted to say I am loving everything about this laptop so far. I spent about 4-5 hours comparing all the laptops in my price range and this is what I finally settled for. My deciding factor for this laptop was the matte screen. My final two options were this, a matte screen, and one with a glossy screen. I finally settled with the matte screen and I'm very happy I did.
Summary: This is not my first ASUS and I am very disappointed with the laptop. The touch pad is to large so as you are trying to type your cursor is constantly being moved somewhere so you have to delete, move the cursor back, and start over... Very disappointed and frustrated as I spend a lot of time typing. Touch pad needs to be smaller to eliminate this problem.
Summary: got this laptop copple weeks ago no problems at all. it really starts up in 2 secs from sleep. its so fast on internet and games i play gta iv on this all the time and it runs it like its a addicitinggames game soo goood would buy it over and over and over again. sound is best i have ever heard from a laptop. the laptop itself has bass than you get a nice subwoffer with it.
SOLID laptop with great hardware for relatively cheap price!

Summary: I've had this laptop for a few months and have basically fallen in love with it. When I first ordered, there weren't many reviews or any information available, so I ordered on a whim. This is a great laptop with some rather impressive hardware and features. It comes with Windows 8 and does not have a touchscreen. Windows 8: I really don't like this operating system, I'm not a fan. I'm not here to review the operating system, just the laptop.
Summary: I'm a college student and a gamer. While researching for a new laptop there were several features I really wanted, and this has every single one of them. ASUS created a beast of a laptop, it truly is an all-star cpu. Pros (Quite a few to list here) -Great sleek and styled design. I'd consider it thin for a 15.6 inch laptop. -The keyboard is backlight. Don't know how I ever lived without this feature in the past.
