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....I was afraid of Windows 8, but with the Asus tips and tricks for Windows 8, I am much more comfortable using it, especially with touchscreen.
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. It is fast and has everything my daughter wanted. we are so happy. Now... If we can be this happy with the college she chooses.
ASUS Vivobook V550CA-DB71T 15.6-Inch Touchscreen Laptop (Black)

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. We bought my daughter an ASUS Transformer tablet last year and we've been really happy with it, so I was leaning toward ASUS. I've had my ASUS Vivobook V550CA-DB71T for about a month now. So far, so good.
Summary: This is one of the coolest laptops I've ever owned. The touch screen capability is very convenient. It's very easy to use just like an apple product. It's thin and light weight. This is my first time owning the product and I'm very satisfied!
After a difficult start, but EXCELLENT customer SERVICE by AMAZON & ASUS a great laptop.

Summary: Shipped without a battery, obviously not tested. I was disappointed. But AMAZON CS were magnificent throughout. it's a shame the Warehouse let them down. ASUS CS were as GOOD which is a shock as AMAZON set the benchmark for CS in my eyes. ASUS Organised it's return and repair which by the sound of it was a simple Motherboard general reset, and returned the UNIT in 3 days. Magnificent.
Summary: I have had my new ASUS V550C for about 8 weeks now and could not be happier. The notebook is thin and not as bulky. The keyboard is easy to use as is on screen touch keys. Swiping from one screen to another using the touch screen is more useful than I thought it would be. Screen resolution is crisp and clear. The down / upload speeds are much fast with no lagging / freezing. The Windows 8 Start / Desk top screens were odd at first, but now I love having them separate.
