Very disappointed

  • 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. When waking up from sleep mode the computer will sometimes lock up and reboot which negates the solid-state positives. Touch screen is nice but I dont find I use it much with Windows 8.

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. I've never seen this happen before on a laptop, but now we have only about 2/3 of the screws in the bottom of this thing. It doesn't seem to affect the way the bottom cover is secured, but it seems like something that shouldn't happen.

Best laptop purchase I've made so far.

  • 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. Processor could be better, but I rarely ever get hanging.freezing issues with it. Handles simple games like a dream (League of Legends, Minecraft, ect...) Has a fast built in wifi adapter.

Good laptop, 3 hrs battery, lot of software update req. on start up

  • Summary: good product. battery life is 3 hours of Netflix, i3 is a bit slow If you ask me. 4gig RAM seems enough to perform day to day task. Boots fast. Touchscreen gives trouble from time to time. But nothing a restart won't fix. Sound is good. No heating issues after almost 2 months of use. McAfee is unnecessary, be sure to remove it and use Windows defender. Build of the product is solid and looks are top notch. a bit pricey.

  • Summary: ASUS did a great job with these lappies. I bought 5 for the office and everyone is happy - they're light and got enough power for what we use them for.
