Good product, odd limitations

garlovel, Amazon
18 March 2013
  • Summary: Works great with an external Apple keyboard and a mouse. The built-in touchpad is sensitive to proximity as well as touch, and it does not shut off during typing. As a result, the cursor is continually repositioned during typing. I use Kubuntu on this computer, but the Win7 Home Premium which came on the computer suffers from the same flaw. I have also discovered a strange behavior when setting the computer up to dual-head with an external 1080p monitor.

Good laptop

jessica, Amazon

  • Summary: This laptop is perfect for school related things. That is what i needed it for and along with my specific internet connection, the internet is quick and the laptop delivers. What i dont recommend it for is viewing youtube videos or downloading lots of things. Any HD video takes a while to load, and forget watching anything in 1080px....it will always lag. Downloading isnt as quick as i would like.

Pleased but have some complaints

Timothy W Polich, Amazon

  • Summary: I love the laptop it preforms extremely well for what I paid. The brushed aluminum finish looks amazing and keeps clean very easily. My biggest complaint is that the mouse buttons are way to loud. It seems like a small thing but they really are a good two times louder then any other laptop I have heard. I cringe when I have to hit the button in a quite room.

Slow, but good size / price

aB, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this because of the pricepoint and the size. It replaced my wife's netbook. I wanted a macbook air but settled because I was low on $ at the time. PROS: -Decent size/weight, though definitely no macbook air -APU = good lightweight graphics -sleek brushed metal look -solid battery life around 7+ hrs -cheap, relatively CONS: -not fast. even replacing a netbook, not fast.

Good in it's self

Mercedes C. Humphreys, Amazon

  • Summary: ASUS customer support is horrendous, have a problem? "re install windows". Their drivers often check for operating system version and OEM status, quite a few would not install when I upgraded to Windows Ultimate. More importantly, I updated the BIOS and BROKE SUPPORT FOR SLEEP. Now the computer stays awake and spins the fans loudly every time I try to sleep it, no matter what OS I use. Windows 8 works quite well.

Good value for the money

Steve-O, Amazon
17 September 2012
  • Summary: I needed a new laptop for a few basic things: internet browsing, email, video calls, and movie/live sports streaming. I was looking for something under $500, relatively light and small, decent battery life, and an hdmi out to use with a home cinema/projector. Most things that fit the description were $800-1500 'ultrabooks.' I kept coming across this Asus on Amazon. I wasn't crazy about the processor speed but otherwise it seemed to fit the bill.

Good basic laptop

R. Suvansri, Amazon
6 September 2012
  • Summary: We needed a basic laptop to replace our old Dell which continuously overheats and shuts down on its own but didn't want to break the bank. Found this deal and have heard about quality of Asus products. Basic needs were for surfing and word processing for my wife's work. Pros: - Quiet - Light and fits well on lap - Stays fairly cool during heavy usage (100% better than our old Dell) - watched an entire movie on Netflix over wifi and it was just warm - Sharp looking - like...

Giant step up from eeepc, pretty nice laptop!

Steve in Japan "Islander", Amazon
27 July 2012
  • Summary: I've been waiting to replace my trusty eeepc 1005HA for a while now, and while looking for another ASUS netbook with a 12 inch screen, all of a sudden Amazon offers this a 13-inch model for very little more than I paid for the 10-inch netbook almost 4 years ago. To be honest, I was expecting to be disappointed because the 1005HA has been so dependable and functional. But the U32U-ES21 is such an enormous improvement that it is really in a class by itself.

ASUS AMD 13.5 " laptop

Amazon Customer, Amazon
14 July 2012
  • Summary: Serves its purpose of Surfing the web and handling email. Good bargain but with a great deal of ad-ware and malware to eliminated. needed to download Ccleaner to eliminate the unneeded programs. Fast enough for its limited functions at a very good price. Avoid using ASUS help. It's clerks try to sell expensive unneeded programs.
