Pros: When it worked, it worked well enough for my purposes.
Cons: Frequent application crashes (browser, skype, file explorer, all at the same time). Either a bad driver or shoverware, but could never identify the cause after uninstalling and disabling junk. And now two and a half years after owning it, it died. Abruptly shut off, won't start again, a spark vis...
Pros: This is my first notebook and compared to the laptop I lug around for work (a dell) it's feather weight! I've had it for a few months now, bought it for school, and its very easy to get used to. No number pad on the side but that doesn't bother me - accounting types might not like that. Goes to s...
Cons: I guess the sound could be a "little" bit richer but with headphones on watching movies its very good. Probably just something I haven't learned to adjust yet.
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.
The issue of the keyboard and text that jumps around is so annoying that it's not worth its price!
14 August 2013
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!
Summary: I feel really bad giving this a 3 star rating. The touchpad issue is a big-deal for my family and now I'm forced to find out if I can resolve it by disabling it and installing a 3rdParty software, or worse yet... have to purchase another one that is more user friendly.
Pros: The laptop is compact, but powerful. Excellent battery life..and with the usage of a Solid State Hard-Drive (SSD) - it boots within 13 seconds where it is ready to launch the internet.
Cons: The only major flaw (in my opinion only) is the TouchPad. Horrible design & implementation. The right & left mouse clicks are part of the entire touchpad and you must keep your fingers/palms high off the keyboard - in order to avoid accidentally touching it -which can screw up you typing an email...
Summary: I wanted laptop with Win 7 and separate video card. Hard to find. My daughter has similar model for three years, home schooling kids and loves it. I needed it immediately for my business, other unit crashed. Backup from crashed unit went smoothly.
Pros: Fast, slim, quiet, easy to use (except for touchpad). Not much bloat ware compared to others I've owned. Worked right out of box. Doesn't run hot, much cooler than other laptops I used.
Cons: Touch pad quirky. Almost useless. I almost returned the unit because I had to use the touch pad to get setup and it was very frustrating. I know about the fix from reading Asus response in reviews but haven't had time to install it.
Pros: Slim design, lightweight, excellent features, plenty of ports, optical disc burner, seemed to be fast.
Cons: Track pad too sensitive, when typing the track pad is a real problem, pointer is always moving, only way around this seems to be disabling it. The lid too flexible (bendy). The aluminium is only a thin sheet for appearance, not for case stability. My main problem with this was out of the box, dur...
