Do not buy if running linux

  • Summary: I had an N56VJ which I replaced with this (AFAICT all N56V* are the same). I have the latest BIOS and newest Ubuntu. Worst problems, which I see on the net some windows users have too: After hibernate the fans will go crazy, like it's about to take off - in fact they are doing it right now. Wifi disconnects if running off battery - I *have* to have this thing plugged in to use it.

Excellent laptop with 1 caveat . .

  • Summary: I have owned this laptop for roughly a year having given it quite a bit of use on a few occasions. It handles everything I need it to do from Office, to internet surfing, to video chatting, to gaming. The display is quite nice being full HD and is very well lit. The keyboard is a keyboard. it is backlit; however, I have not used that function yet. My only 'beef' is with the touchpad on this thing.

Loving it with Ubuntu

Amazon Customer "Man with Van", Amazon

  • Summary: First time boot up with Windows 8 was pretty scary. I've been running Linux exclusively for so long now I don't even bother with dual boot. I got this machine from Microcenter as an openbox deal. I'm guessing it was returned because of the touchpad. It takes focused effort to use the keyboard without knocking the cursor around inadvertently. I keep the touchpad disabled with Function F9 and use a wireless usb mouse.

One star only

  • Summary: Blu-Ray movies will not play on my N56VZ laptop. The OS (W8) is still the original "factory setting" and the ASUSDVD (Cyberlink PowerDVD player) wouldn't work. Upgraded to Cyberlink PowerDVD 13 Ultimate, still won't play. Tech support recommends I reinstall Windows 8 from the recovery partition - when the ORIGINAL FACTORY SETTINGS didn't work in the first place.

Great value, premium feel.

Stefan, Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: After a month of using this laptop, I have a lot of great things to say about it. For starters, everything seems solidly built and stable. I have not had issues with crashes, overheating, or construction defects yet. The screen is gorgeous, with great viewing angles and a nice mate finish that is very clear even in in sunlight. The keyboard is decent, and the touch pad is good as well, once you get used to it.
