Asus Service is Garbage

Ryan A., Newegg
25 February 2014
  • Pros: Laptop works well, once you remove the absurd amount of bloatware.
  • Cons: At the three month mark, got a blue screen of death message. Had been working fine prior. Just surfing internet when it happened. After getting cut off two separate times and having to plead my case to a supervisor, the only option is to send this in for a three week repair process. Which, for a ...

Awesome

Shari R., Newegg

  • Pros: I'm a systems engineer by trade so I am very picky when it comes to equipment. This laptop is incredibly well made and the specs are very nice. I did not want a laptop with a touch screen and it coming with WIndows 7 Pro was a nice touch. I already upgraded it to 8GB's. Note there is 4GB's built ...
  • Cons: No back light keyboard and the screws on the back panel strip really easily so be careful.

mickey m., Newegg
17 October 2013
  • Summary: I had to do a factory wipe due to a bad Windows update (probably my fault, lost power during the update)... and it was pretty easy, but it took a very long time. Since this information is hard to find, you can perform the following modifications to this by only opening the case (no advanced tools...
  • Pros: Good case, well built. Fast and good for the price without unnecessary features like touch screen. Upgradable RAM & Hard Drive. Relatively light-weight for the size. 3 Year Warranty
  • Cons: Screen is awful. I would have regretted this purchase on this point alone but we use this laptop with a monitor or with a projector - no big loss here. If you don't care about a decent resolution or good brightness, this isn't a factor for you! Lots of bloatware. As expected, these laptops come w...

B400A

Ryan F., Newegg
10 October 2013
  • Summary: Overall, great for mobile computing
  • Pros: This laptop is everything I needed apart from my gaming tower. It can handle most tasks with ease, even without the i5 and upgraded RAM.
  • Cons: No SSD (can be installed though). Intel bloatware, which is very common nowadays. Screen isn't the greatest
