Summary: boots in 5 seconds after uninstalling all the worthless crap so much memory only complaint is the graphics and color not very well done but this is a bargain. mouse pad will stop working if you do not lock the PC before closing the lid. You'll have to reboot to regain functionality.
Summary: I received the computer and started updating it. It is a nice looking computer. Very sleek, runs smooth (as it should since it is brand new), and everything looked good. But when I started typing on it, the space bar was almost unresponsive ( had to hit hard and in the exact middle).
Summary: Purchased from Adorama in December 2013. Machine frequently shuts down abruptly. Wireless adapter cannot find router to which I have connected: Directv, Roku, iPhone (2), iPad, Sony Vaio, and Wii. Sent it in for service. Asus wiped the drive and reinstalled OS. I repopulated software and files.
Summary: Wow, I love this laptop, I even purchased a refurbished one for less which they claimed the box was damaged when arrived, but it is brand new and it works great, touch screen is perfect, bought the 3 yr warranty just in case, worth it...
Summary: This notebook seemed promising. Unfortunately, the very first time I took it out of the box and turned it on the disk drive would pop out by itself, almost everytime I barely moved the computer.
Summary: We bought a refurbished product for our daughter graduating HS. I was concerned about refurbished but was reassured by the Amazon store name. It went through a lengthy update after adding some software,scary. It has been awesome and quite a good deal. I would buy it again even not refurbished.

Summary: I'm not a techie, but I did my homework before buying this laptop. I was trying to get the best bang for my buck (my budget was around $800) and something that would be reliable and last for at least 3-4 years before I had to upgrade.
Summary: Pros: processor, disk space, touchscreen (sometimes) Cons: space bar is faulty, noticeably less responsive than all other keys. Very annoying. Sonic master is garbage. The two main speakers are on THE BOTTOM of the machine, for whatever reason.
