Great all-arounder

J. Wojewidka "Jaydub", Amazon
13 October 2014
  • Summary: Have had mine for one year. Excellent machine, all around. Really nice size, slim, light, great screen. It's not as rigid as I'd like, but in this price category, it is more than acceptable. The finish looks great, but shows fingerprints and could be prone to scratching (but mine has none so far). The keyboard can touch the screen when closed and traveling - a general notebook issue - so I made a protector for it and it solved the problem.

Laptop build quality is good, finish is very nice and it works

Kriba "KRITHIGA", Amazon
12 October 2014
  • Summary: Laptop build quality is good, finish is very nice and it works. The Wifi card is terrible and after several months of struggling with it (like many others have posted) I ended up replacing it with Intel Network 7260.HMWG.R card for $30 and its fine now. Also the 4GB RAM is ok but I suggest adding another 4GB for another $40. Effectively add $80 to this price in order to make it work well.

Paying for a headache

Amazon Customer, Amazon
28 August 2014
  • Summary: I've have had a terrible experience with this computer. Two days after I received it I started having problems with the screen, now after sending for repairs for the THIRD time my issue is still unresolved. Their costumer service has been more than unhelpful in helping solve this problem. I've also had troubles with the multiple finger gestures with trackpad.

I really like this computer - it is fast

Tim Davidson, Amazon
18 August 2014
  • Summary: I really like(d) this computer - it is fast, touch screen is responsive, and its lightweight. The only downsides are 1) the screen which can be difficult to see well in well lit rooms/sunlight and 2) the touch pad. It is far too easy to accidentally touch the Touch pad in a way that causes seemingly random changes to occur (grab and move things accidentally from desktop/folders, highlight or change text, cause a random function in windows to start, etc).

Could have been great

jaustria_h, CNET
10 August 2014
  • Summary: The Vivobook could have been amazing. The price is just right at under $600. It comes with a good, responsive touchscreen. The hybrid SSD+HDD makes boot times consistently under 15-20 seconds. So what's the problem?
  • Pros: Excellent price; touchscreen; good keyboard, amazing boot times
  • Cons: Randomly shuts down; touchpad build quality; driver issues; customer support

Can't beat the value

Mark A., Amazon
9 August 2014
  • Summary: Within 1 week of getting the laptop I got the click of death (hard-drive failure). Didn't drop it, mishandle it or anything out of the norm. I immediately contacted ASUS support through chat, and in about 10 minutes she determined for me to send the laptop in for repair under warranty. I sent the laptop in and got it returned from them with a replaced hard-drive all in a week and a half.

Functional, but not good enough.

Luke Heidbrink, Amazon
26 July 2014
  • Summary: I bought this last Black Friday, fairly last minute. After almost a year I've been underwhelmed. I might possibly be spoiled by my excellent desktop, but I also think this laptop doesn't deliver for the price. Negatives: - Screen glare and viewing angle are just awful. The screen has low brightness and is difficult to see under many conditions. You will probably be annoyed by this almost every time you use the laptop. - Relatively poor performance for the size and price.

A good computer priced right.

John A. Johnson "Avid Reader", Amazon
11 July 2014
  • Summary: So far I've been very happy with this computer. I upgraded the RAM to 8GB, which was very easy to do after watching video on Youtube. Also downloaded and installed Windows 8.1 which is a slight improvement over Windos 8.I use this computer to stream Netflix via the HDMI port to a big screen TV and the picture looks great with no buffering.

Great buy

muddin0753, Ebay
5 July 2014
  • Summary: This is an excellent notebook for the specs in this price. Personally, I just removed the HDD and replaced it with an SSD. After installing a fresh windows 8.1, this seems like a super fast computer. I am very happy with this purchase and my customization. Great buy!
