Summary: This works great! I only have a small complaint. Whenever I connect it to my tv via HDMI cable, it tends not to work unless I use Pulse audio control (granted I am currently using Ubuntu, so I am unsure if it works or not with windows).
Summary: I was looking an affordable durable laptop that I could play movies through the HDMI for camping. So far this laptop has performed very well. It feels surprisingly solid for a $500 laptop. Asus has put together a laptop that doesn't feel flimsy, but durable.
Summary: bought this for my daughter for college. at first it has been a great computer. However....less than a month after getting it, it has crashed hard and now won't boot up. I know this can happen to computers (I test computers for a living), but should not have this kind of problem so quickly.
Sticky spacebar, AWFUL operating system (which isn't Asus' fault!)

Summary: Only reason I give 3 stars is that the space bar is very finicky/sticky and I want to SCREAM at Miicrosoft for this disaster called Windows 8.1/ Try finding just a drive listing to transfer something from say a thumb drive to a folder on your C drive. AAARGH . The computer is fine...
