Summary: I purchased as a travel unit, but it is as large as my "regular" 15" laptop. Very slow from initial use. After only loading MS antivirus, Defender, and MS Office Suit, it began to lock up. After several days of light use, it began to blue screen. After the 4th or 5th blue screen, I sent it back. Amazing Amazon refunded the entire price! Fabulous service, but crappy product.
Summary: The laptop just wasn't what I expected. I opened 3 web browsers (gmail, pandora, and amazon) and the pandora music immediately started acting up. I was hoping for a laptop to use at school but I won't be able to multitask like I'm used to. The look of the laptop is really nice and sleek and it's super light weight, but the performance was not up to par so I returned it.
Summary: I bought this laptop back in June and it looked great. Out of the box it was a bit slow, thinking it was due to all the preloaded junk new computers come with, but after I uninstalled some, the computer still wasnt as fast as I thought it would be, considering the specs. Alright, that's ok. Four months later though, I feel like this computer's speed sucks major.
Great for the price! UPDATE: Not so great... don't buy.

Summary: I did a lot of research before buying this laptop. I almost bought a more expensive ASUS, but I'm really glad that I went for the cheaper version. This ASUS laptop readily meets my needs! Pros: ++ Impressive, sturdy, compact ASUS packaging. Very, very prompt arrival thanks to the Discover Card 2-Day shipping Amazon is offering right now. Awesome! ++ Very sleek and slim. This laptop is slick. ++ The PRICE! Man, the price!
Summary: I really wanted to like this product it has many good features, but sadly, the system has 3* VERY bad points and 3 not so bad points. Here's the bad; *1. The viewing angle of the screen is horrible.10 degrees from dead-on at most.YIKES! *2. The Wi-Fi has no problem finding signals, it just won't stay connected to any of them. *3. Hard Drive is very slow. o4. Decals on keys, not laser etched. o5. Bluetooth is very picky and tempermental o6.
