26 February 2014
  • Pros: It was refurbished, which is a great cost reducer. The PC is speedy, light, and if you play with your power options right, you can last for I think the longest I got was 6 hours.
  • Cons: I few cons:

Run Away

N/A, Newegg
12 December 2013
  • Summary: Never owned anything but a Toshiba laptop until these units. Always had great service with the Toshiba but thought I'd try this laptop based on features.
  • Pros: backlit keyboard, quiet
  • Cons: poor resolution, been through three of these laptops in the past 4 weeks, all have the same issue. hit the power button and nothing happens. spoke with Asus customer support, they tell me units are out of warranty. Last Asus product I'll purchase EVER!

No more ASUS for me

N/A, Newegg
8 November 2013
  • Pros: It worked fairly well for nine months.
  • Cons: At only nine months old, and without ever having a lapse in anti-virus, the computer had slowed down to the point where loading Windows took a minimum of 8 minutes and using the computer was impossible. When I tried to run the recovery partition that came with the computer, it did not work. I will now have to replace the hard drive or the entire computer. What a waste of money.

Hella bang for the buck

Kellyn, Newegg

  • Summary: Buy a wireless mouse and disable the trackpad immediately. You'll love it.
  • Pros: Extremely well priced. Awesome backlit keyboard.
  • Cons: Trackpad is HORRIBLE. I always find myself rewriting the first line of an email by accident, or completely switching windows by merely breathing on the trackpad. Adjusting the sensitivity does little to help.

COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY

Brett Carnahan, Amazon

  • 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. Worked the same for a few months longer but then again started doing the "shutdown" thing again. I sent it back a second time. That time, the tech replaced the motherboard..

Do not recommend

  • 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. My issues with this laptop: a) poor track pad; it either doesn't respond or starts becoming hypersensitive b) Bose headphones have poor quality---I got a new pair and they still don't work in this laptop c) computer will randomly shut off...

Best Specs for the Price

Aether, Newegg
6 August 2013
  • Summary: Would highly recommend this laptop.
  • Pros: Laptop runs cool, fast, and looks nice. I looked for nearly a month before settling on a laptop, and this was the one. Pretty lightweight (replacing my old gaming laptop) and runs multiple programs with ease. Great specs for the price, couldn't even tell it was a refurb.
  • Cons: The touchpad. It is horrible. Other than that, nothing big enough to complain about.

Absolutely wonderful

success, Newegg
4 August 2013
  • Summary: If you are looking for a regular laptop, just one for being around the house, maybe play some games on it, maybe for e-mail and internet, maybe just to run some programs, whatever it is, if it's for every day use, PICK THIS ONE. You will get the most power for your dollar. For an every day laptop that can run and do just about everything, this is the best choice.
  • Pros: This was the best thing I have ever purchased. This computer is powerful, wonderful, and very pleasing aesthetically. This was a great buy, I couldn't imagine getting any more bang for your buck otherwise.
  • Cons: None.

Great Value

  • Summary: I had problems with the touch pad jumping me around while I typed. But then I disabled "tap to click" and a few other features and now I don't have any problems.
  • Pros: -Great build quality (looks and feels very solid)
  • Cons: -Speakers are very tinny and do not get very loud. Will be OK for netflix, but probably won't use this to listen to music
