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. The company was very helpful but with the combination of that mishap, the lack of quality of camera, the slight lack of sensitivity on the mousepad and other small things I just decided to go with a different computer.
Summary: We bought the ASUS V550CA for my daughter who was entering college. When we the PC started an auto-update from Windows 8 and then did a restart, the screen would not come back or the hard drive became inactive. We tried everything to boot into safe mode with no luck. I replaced with the same model, because at this price point it is hard to beat and Amazon too the 1st laptop back without issue.
