Solid Workhorse

Grumpyoldretiredguy, B&H Photo
1 week ago
  • Excerpt: Faced with 3 aging computers equipped with Windows XP, I wanted to replace them not with 3 separate computers but with a single unit capable of performing all the tasks of each. That meant running both business apps as well as photo imaging apps. Here is where B&H's "compare" feature online became indispensable. In my price range, I got 8GB RAM, an Intel 1.8 GHz i7 processor and a 750GB HD.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Powerful

Missing Screw on the back and fingerprint smudges all over it... Seems like refurbished or used.

Shih Ming Peter Liu, Amazon
4 weeks ago
  • Summary: I just got the package today and it's missing a screw on the back and there are smudges on it. I have pictures that I can send. Was this a used or a refurbished computer? This is supposed to be new. Can someone from Asus let me know how I can get the screws and let me know if this product was used?

Good Deal, Would Purchase Again

M, B&H Photo
22 June 2014
  • Excerpt: This is notebook is my primary workstation. I use it mostly for regular document processing, web browsing, streaming videos. However, I have also installed an Ubuntu 64-bit VM and plan to possibly install Adobe Creative Suite. This notebook looks slick and works without a hitch. Battery life has been good (~5 hours?). I am very happy with this system so far. The only possible downside, which I was aware of before my purchase, is its weight.
  • Pros: Easy To Set Up, Easy To Use, Fast, Powerful
  • Cons: Heavy

Honestly I Don't Know

Emma Peale, Amazon
21 June 2014
  • Summary: I'm giving the laptop, notebook, whatever the hell it is, three stars because Win 8 (point 1, but who cares about point 1?) is so awful I'm avoiding using this beautiful little device like the plague. It's sleek, lovely looking, and with Windows 8 variatons, just about unusable. Look, I'm still getting used to Windows 7! I don't know everything I can or should do with that OS after the switch from XP a few years ago! And now this?

Windows is horrible

Josie, Amazon
18 June 2014
  • Summary: Pros: I like the hardware on this computer it looks awesome. Cons: I have had it less than 24 hours and the computer is unusable because of windows 8 even after the 8.1 update. Constant freezing with no apps running.

Good value laptop

John Vic Grice, Amazon
17 June 2014
  • Summary: I ordered this laptop 6 months ago, and it is still working fine. This laptop has a lot of features including windows 8 with touch screen(which is growing on me), an optical drive, a decent amount of RAM, and good hard drive space. I did notice there were only three usb ports not 4, but not a make or break deal. The keyboard is not the greatest and the screen doesn't get as bright as you may want, but these issues are all manageable.
