Summary: Conclusion: I sooo wish I had purchased another, less buggy laptop. Pros: Small, more easily carried than most. Fast CPU. It was cheap, $500, which included sufficient RAM, touchscreen, Windows 8. (It all sounded so wonderful.) It does still work at its buggy best after 5 months and I use it for things like this review. Cons: Hangs/freezes on every program I use, MS Word, IE, Excel, and others, which requires some work arounds and/or restart. Lost work.

Summary: I've been using Macbook Pro for 6 years and decided in order to work whilst travelling I needed something small, so why not consider Windows 8. Originally I checked out the specs and was amazed by it. Once the product arrived, the first few days was pretty exciting due to exploring the features, etc. After a week, I lost the love for it. Crashes daily. Many tools not needed. Will not buy again.
Summary: when I received the laptop , the security label had been tampered with , ie restuck. Word came installed on the Asus as I can see it in Programs, but there was no Product Key in the box ,also the company did not send me a receipt for the amount. I contacted DGadget who I purchased the laptop from & eventually got a reply saying that they had attached a receipt which they had , but the tampering of the security seal was "probably" part of a stock check.
Summary: Screen touch facility not good around edges. Could do with more RAM but cant upgrade as modules are hardwired into the laptop. Guess you get what u pay for but this is first laptop I have ever bought where the RAM cud not be upgraded.
Summary: dieses Netbookmit Touchscreen ist ausser schlecht gerade einmal schoen! Die Prozessorleistung scheint ganz gutzu sein,allerdings ueberhitzt das Netbook nach kurzer Zeit (meine max. Messung war 98Grad) Kann nur abraten dieses Netbookzu kaufen, ausser man braucht es nur um cool beim Starbucks zu sitzen und auf Facebook zu sein, da wuerde ich aber ein MacBook empfehlen, weil es wenigstens besser aussieht...
