  • 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. Computer (machine) frequently shuts down abruptly and can't find wireless router or stay connected when it does recognize it. Oh, and the adapter is 2.4 Ghz only; no 5 Ghz band.

Non tested faulty seconds.

  • Summary: Received by 'refurbed' Asus laptop Friday and upon using it for the first time found it constantly shuts down as if it is over heating. The case is not hot at all, but if I let the computer fully cool down it will work for around 5 mins. I would guess that there is an issue with the heatsink connection to the chip. I am furious that dabs send out this refurbed stock without even testing it this far.

Good potential, bad hardware and customer service

  • Summary: I had high hopes for this computer, assuming I ever got past learning to use Windows 8. As other people have said, having a touch screen makes 8 easier to use. The catch was, mine came a few days ago with a defective touch screen that acted like someone was tickling it along the right edge as soon as I powered it up.

  • Summary: Not happy as product photos shows a disc player. This is false advertising. Reading the product specifics does state this but my daughter picked this.
