Summary: As a Computer Science major I need a good laptop, but I didn't want to pay the price for a macbook. I got this sucker for 500 dollars and it has an i7 and 8gb ram. I obviously replaced the hard drive with a ssd and I recently upgraded that ssd to a samsung 850 pro.
Summary: Love this laptop, it's been great. There are only two complaints I have: The CD drive opens as soon as you barely touch it, and the mouse is extremely sensitive, despite me having put it on the lowest sensitivity settings.
Summary: Only 2 complaints... 1. I feel a little friction when sliding around the touchpad, it wish it was a little smoother 2. There's a little crack on the bottom, I think where the ram and harddrive is, But just a little cosmetic damage won't do much harm especially at the price ($485) Overall a great...
Summary: I am a student – studying mechanical engineering – who just finished my freshman year of college. Being a college student in the field of engineering, I was going to need a laptop that was dependable and user-friendly while still being reasonably priced.
Summary: ASUS is such a scam! I bought this model last year in October. Worked well for a while but then started turning itself off randomly (just a hard shut down). I sent it to the ASUS "techs" to see what they could fix. The first time, they replaced some sort of "power module" and then sent it back.
Not so nice after 1 year and 2 $120 batteries later

Summary: We liked this notebook until after about 5 months the battery died. Could only buy the battery at ASUS (Amazon does not carry it). It cost $120. Now 7 months later, the battery died again and I just spent another $120. This is getting real expensive really fast.
Summary: I've owned this laptop for less than a year and it was sent into the shop 4 times. By the 4th time, they sent me a new laptop, which had the same problems. My friend owned the exact same model and also had problems with this laptop.
Summary: After receiving it, had many issues. Internet Explorer Stopped working. The power button didn't work, and had to keep removing the battery, holding the power button down for 10 seconds reinstall battery, then it would work.
