Get something better for a cheaper price

Willard Samuels, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: This is NOT worth anything over $600, you can get something better for a cheaper price. The specs sound appealing but you can't do anything about the battery or the memory without having to disassemble the laptop just to get to something as simple as the battery. It has already broken down on me TWICE and I've only had it for 6 months.

Just horrible.

Mario R., Amazon

  • Summary: I would not recommend anyone to buy this laptop. The laptop freezes every time I want to watch a youtube video longer than ~20 minutes, it shuts down randomly (2-3 times a day) and you can't watch HD movies with both of the graphic boards... Horrible!!

The touchpad is awful!!

Ashley, Amazon
21 August 2014
  • Summary: I have an older ASUS laptop and this one is certainly an improvement in some ways. I have had the laptop for a little over a month now. I bought it online without testing it/seeing it first. First, it is much faster upon start up and waking back up from "sleep." It also has more storage, which is nice. The reason I am giving this computer only 2 stars is the touchpad is extremely sensitive and keeps randomly zooming in and out.

Nice, but TERRIBLY lacking in display

Daniel, Amazon
15 July 2014
  • Summary: So far, a very fast and nice laptop. I have one major, huge complaint though: the display is TERRIBLE. And I mean terrible. Its very dull and the colors are just straight up ugly. I'm seriously considering buying a monitor to use this laptop. Taking this laptop outside is literally the worst. The maximum brightness is ridiculously low. I guess I can't use this thing outdoors? My old 2010 Macbook Pro had 10x more crisper display than this.

Windows 8, no!

Amazon Customer, Amazon
5 February 2014
  • Summary: We bought this because my husband wanted a touch screen laptop. Unfortunately, Windows 8 is a horrible operating system and makes us want to cry. The hardware itself is fine - another quality ASUS product - but the horror that is Windows 8 makes this laptop a punishment to work with.

Frustration right out of the box

INTERCEPTOR, B&H Photo
19 November 2013
  • Excerpt: Bought this Asus laptop for my consulting business and it is the worst computer I have ever owned. period. Lucky I still have my old trusty 4yr old laptop as a backup. My new Asus has been stuck in a reboot loop for the third time after it started doing a Windows update and locked up. I am not sure if it's Asus I should be mad at or Microsoft. But I will say this combination of computer and Windows 8 is not ready for consumers.
  • Pros: 1tb Hdd, Battery Life
  • Cons: 1tb Hdd Is Slow, Nightmare Setup, Sketchy Performance
