What a Nightmare!

CaliPalosVerdes, Amazon
18 November 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this laptop in May of 2013. The track pad didn't work properly from the outset, but I solved that problem by using a wireless mouse. The next issue was the erratic wifi connection. I contacted tech support, and that problem was only partially solved. In November, 2013, when I attempted to start the computer, it completely crashed! The operating system wouldn't load. When I contacted tech support, they had me try two different methods of fixing the computer.

What a nightmare

Dan Spalding, Amazon
8 June 2013
  • Summary: I got this Asus U47VC in the mail yesterday and tried to install Ubuntu on it. I made my last Asus a dual boot machine, no problem. This time, the computer failed to install Linux, and Windows stopped working, too - even after using the Windows recovery disk. This laptop is unreliable. I'm hoping I can fix it with a few more hours of work. Save yourself the headache and get something else. Anything else...

Perfect In-between

G. Franklin, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: The Asus U47VC is perfectly positioned between the ultrabooks, which are wonderfully light but uncomfortable for real work, and the heavier-weight laptops that have all the features but are too heavy to lug around all day. I am very happy with mine. The only problem was that I found upgrading to Windows 8 involved uninstalling and re-installing numerous drivers.

The issue of the keyboard and text that jumps around is so annoying that it's not worth its price!

Jill, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: I read the reviews before buying this and kind of blew off the part about the sensitivity of the keyboard and mouse and how text would suddenly be in different spots than I intended because the cursor seems to mysteriously reposition itself. I wish I hadn't! It's such a nuisance! I'm a fast typist who can look elsewhere while typing, but not with this!

Powerful Lightweight Laptop

srtalukdar, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: I have used a number of laptops of this model. First, got one for myself and then found it so good that I recommended it to my friends and they also got the same model. Pros: Weight: At 4.2 lbs this computer is not the lightest but it is quite portable. With this configuration, if you are expecting some real performance then please don't go for the ultra-portables. They are just joke! This computer is no joke. It's meant for serious computation.

Great laptop..

Peter, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: Researched many laptops. ASUS U47VC is the best around. I always have had great luck with my ASUS custom builds and this laptop is better than the 16" one I previously bought and took back. You cannot upgrade memory on many others. With this you can go up to 16GB. Best laptop I have had. Im not nit picky about the sound since I have a sound bar that sits on top and sounds great. Like I said before.

Excellent design. Lightweight. Feature rich!

Kice, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: This is my 2nd Asus laptop in the U series line. I previously had a 2011 model #U46SV and sold it recently to my cousin for a cool $700. This review will be comparing both 2011 and 2012 models. As always with any laptop or ultrabook, I do a clean install on Win7 Pro x64 OS and installed a fresh Vertex 4 SSD 256gb I got on black friday sale! My impressions with this year's model U47VC has met higher expectations than I thought.

Very nice, sleek little notebook

Brushstroke "Brushy", Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: I recently purchased this as an upgrade to a notebook I received for Christmas in 2010, and it's a very nice upgrade indeed. I've had some time to play with it and set it to my liking, and here are my thoughts: Pros: * Very light and thin, but it still has the RAM and storage space of a traditional full-size laptop * 8GB of RAM, expandable to 16 even though ASUS says the max is 8! * A dedicated graphics card.

Awesome computer!

Rockclimer876, Amazon
21 August 2012
  • Summary: I've only had this computer for a week, but it is everything I wanted. It's very clean looking with great graphics card so I can finally play games on my computer. It's lightweight so I can carry it around everywhere but is still powerful enough to run what I need. Pros: --Lightweight, compared to my old dell. --Size (14.1'' diagonal). Perfect to carry around school but big enough to still immerse yourself in games. --Everything else not mentioned in cons.
