Summary: Excellent laptop.It's very thin that carry along very convenient. The outward appearance is perfect.And it's so fast that just take shorter than 15 seconds to start it.But i don't know why the systems were not set in the Solid State Disk.
Summary: I have no idea what other people are talking about when it comes to this laptop. I put Windows 7 on it when it arrived. I have no fan noise issue whatsoever. I can't even hear it running. My battery lasts between 4-6 hours depending on what I'm doing. I will say that when this laptop first arrived, the OS was installed to the 750GB drive instead of the SSD.
Summary: Despite all the negative reviews, I took a chance and bought this laptop, and overall, it is a great laptop for the price. Pros: It is very quick. The i5-3317u, despite being a low voltage variant of the i5, is surprisingly quick for a 17 watt processor, it is capable of downclocking itself to a minimum of 0.7ghz to preserve battery life, and turbo boost can push it to 2.7ghz when needed for that extra bit of oomph.
Summary: For the price, this laptop is pretty good. I found no glaring defects in the design or workmanship, in fact overall it felt pretty solid, with minimal flex. I get the feeling it will last for several years of regular use. The one nit-pick I have is the touch pad has no separate physical buttons, but that's becoming (unfortunately) a more common design choice.
Summary: This is a great laptop overall. It's fast and stays cool all the time (I actually start feeling cold when it's sitting on my lap). The build quality is great. Now it's obviously not the best quality like macbooks, but for the price it is great. I actually dropped it several times on a tiled floor from my desk and the worst that happened was that the battery popped out a little. Some of the reviews on here mentioned that the fan is always on.
Summary: Delivery was fast, but MY SCREEN WON'T SHOW ANYTHING. I booted up the computer and the fan was on and so were the lights on the keyboard. The computer was running perfectly fine and then all of the sudden the screen went black AND I'VE BEEN TRYING SINCE TO TURN IT ON BUT NOTHING WORKS. I was really looking forward to being able to use this computer but unfortunately ASUS let me down and now I will have to see about returning it.
Summary: I expected more from this computer. It isn't as quick as I needed and it bogs down when more that just a few screens are open. I use this for work and have an Asus as my personal computer as well but don't know that I will get another. The other issue is the monitor plug in. It hasn't worked from day 1. At first I got a screen that went from normal to blue and now nothing. To duplicate screens it senses that the monitor is there but can't project a picture.
