Summary: Had this for 3 years now. Bought it for 670 at best buy new and do not recommend paying much more for it. Especially as this computer is now 3 years old. I'm surprised someone is peddling it for 850! Rip off!!!
Summary: Let me start off by saying that I like this machine very much and I am not as tech savvy as many of you probably are. But it came loaded with a lot of things that either slowed it down or messed with the internet connectivity.
Summary: I really like this computer. However, I've been having a lot of problems with it crashing randomly. I'm sure it's not the computers fault, but rather the person who refurbished it (I bought it refurbished from Tigerdirect through Amazon).
Summary: Bought a refurbished product at a real discount. The DVD drive was broken but the seller sent a replacement within a few days. The performance of the computer is excellent. The energy usage is far better than the other laptops I use. I intend to copy its settings to use in my other computers.
Summary: I bought this laptop at Best Buy for $599--mine has a 750 gig drive, though. I've had it for about two weeks now, and I'm pretty happy with it. What I needed: I needed a notebook that would be reliable through my senior year of college (including, importantly, writing a thesis) for my word...
Summary: I bought this laptop 9 months ago for school and I am pleased. The one knock I have is the extremely annoying ASUS firmware... Updates that never work, downloads that don't work,etc. as for performance and battery life I am very pleased. ASUS claims 10 hours of battery life.....
Summary: This is a very user friendly computer. I find it very convenient and easy to use; however, there is no word processing program so you have to purchase one if you wish to compose any letters. All in all it is a great computer.
