Not worth the effort

Ryan V., Newegg
25 March 2015
  • Summary: When switching back and forth from the original HDD that comes preloaded with win 7 from a second hard drive (SSD in my case) loaded with 8.1 you will need to go into Security and disable it via the bois and then enable CSM from the boot menu. If not you will boot straight into the bois repeatedly.
  • Pros: Aesthetically pleasing, Nice price. Choice between windows 7 or 8.1.
  • Cons: Windows 7 comes preloaded with 3 partitions. One recovery partition, a system partition, and the OS partition. So far this is all normal.

Im happy

24 February 2015
  • Summary: ASUS IS MY FAVORITE BRAND. EVERYTHING I BUY WORK AS EXPECTED. AS A COMPUTER TECHNICIAN, I THINK IS A GREAT PRICE. IF YOU ARE NOT A COMPUTER SAVVY, I RECCOMEND YOU TO BUY A COMPUTER WITH WINDOWS 8.1 ALREADY INSTALLED TO AVOID ISSUES.
  • Pros: UPGRADEABLE TO 8.1 PRO SPEED SCREEN SIZE TOUCHPAD WEIGHT
  • Cons: UPGRADING TAKES A WHILE AND IF YOU ARE NOT A TECH SAVVY, IT MIGHT BE A PROBLEM (I am and it took me a while, but I was expecting it). NO KEYBOARD LIGHT THE 4GB OF RAM IS BUILT INTO THE MOTHERBOARD (no biggie, still have one more slot of another memory stick of 4GB) ONLY 2 USB PORTS

No Buyer's Remorse

Screener, Amazon

  • Summary: Only 2 USB ports, and both on the same side. Difficult to get computer to charge 100%--a big irk, if full battery capacity is needed. Otherwise it's a solid performer--has everything I need for small business computing.

  • Summary: I really like this laptop. It is simple and looks good. Keyboard feels nice. EDIT: I initially had major issues with wireless stability, and driver updates did not fix the problem.
  • Pros: Sleek, lightweight, smooth design.
  • Cons: Wireless card is awful (note: upgrade to most recent driver). Power adapter cord is a bit short.

Quiet and keeps cool

Ed Lai, Amazon
8 March 2015
  • Summary: Had it for two weeks now. Everything is working great. Very quiet and keeps cool. The only annoying thing is the laptop is not preloaded with software(s) for the webcam and I have to search for and load the software myself.

Macbeth, Amazon

  • Summary: Awesome! I have had many laptops for personal (at home) and twice as many for work ( I can't do my job without one ). The feel is crisp on the keyboard. The track is responsive and doesn't fade. No blue or black screen of death. Not one complaint for this jewel of a computer. Great battery life.
