Summary: I purchased this laptop primarily because the price was just as good as other laptops with the same specs, but it had the Accidental Damage Warranty provided by ASUS. THAT WAS A MISTAKE. DO NOT DEPEND ON THIS WARRANTY. Horrible customer service experience continues... About 6 months after buying my laptop and registering for the ADW, I dropped my laptop and cracked the screen. Bummer, but I remembered I had the ADW.
Summary: At first I was pretty happy with this laptop. Though I was never able to get 12 hours of battery time I did get around 8 or 9. It is nice having the quick boot and the laptop always stayed quiet and cool. However, after 2 months I went to boot it one day and the screen refused to come on. After two days I called the ASUS customer service and they had me send in the laptop. They ended up sending me a new one. After 2 weeks, the screen blacked out on that one as well!
