Not recommended

Russell S., Newegg
6 January 2016
  • Summary: I bought this notebook based on its features and generally positive reviews. After using it for about two month I now regret this purchase. The keyboard is flimsy, the middle section literally moves up & down as you type, and I just can't get comfortable typing on this machine.
  • Pros: Bright screen Good battery life Compact charger
  • Cons: Flimsy keyboard Poorly manufactured trackpad No cap lock light

Awful keyboard, even worse service

Alecia, Amazon

  • Summary: I purchased this laptop in August of 2013. For the first year, it worked well enough, but as soon as it hit the 1 year mark three of the screws on the back came off and the keyboard gradually stopped working due to some problem with the hinge.

Worst Purchase EVER

Amazon Customer, Amazon
1 May 2015
  • Summary: I have had this computer for slightly over a year. In that time I have had to send it in to Asus twice for problems with the keyboard because random keys would stop working. It took them almost two weeks to process and send back my computer both times.

Very disappointed

rendy0212, Amazon
5 March 2015
  • Summary: I have had nothing but problems with this laptop. Touch pad is cheap and finicky. The multi-touch gestures work sporadically and driver needs reset for them to work again. Battery life is decent. Start up times with the solid-state HD I guess are faster but not significantly.

but it seems like something that shouldn't happen

  • Summary: HDD started failing after only a year. I just purchased a replacement HDD, imaged the old drive and installed. It worked without a hitch. Also, the screws that secure the bottom plastic plate have just been loosening and falling out.

Best laptop purchase I've made so far.

Ian, Amazon
17 January 2015
  • Summary: Amazed at the speed of this laptop. The write speeds are incredible if you put the OS on the SSD. My quad core 4.5 GHz processor on my gaming desktop can't copy files faster than this laptop. Its got a built in touch screen made of very tough glass that is glare resistant.
