Showing 1-10 of 20
Love the Ubuntu operating system, but the laptop itself is junk.

Summary: After only a few months of using this computer, it started having problems. The mouse, which is a very annoying design to begin with, is also unreliable. It stopped working completely and I had to re-install the Ubuntu (Linux) operating system. Luckily, Asus made this fairly easy by having the installation files on a hidden section of the drive, making the installation very easy. You just press F8 repeatedly on startup, and then follow the instructions.
Summary: My husband bought this exact computer in January for $320 and loves it for the price. I needed a new cheap computer to drag around with me to work sites and decided to get the same one. This one is constructed out of different materials. The touch pad is very unpleasing to use and system gets hung up even with nothing on it. I'd return it if I hadn't thrown away all the packaging.
Summary: My son has had a number of challenges since I purchased this product 4.5 months ago. the biggest issue is the touch screen it self apparently there is a problem with something called phantom touch where the screen has a mind of its own. As a result he doesn't use the screen to operate the system....
Summary: Great concept but this little guy can't handle the applications it's loaded with. I suppose it's the processor that's the real problem. It simply moves at the speed of a machine from the late '90s, and hangs up frequently. I only had it for a few weeks before returning so I can't talk about all the ins and outs, but I used it long enough to reveal its fundamental weakness. I read some of the other reviews, which lead me to make the purchase.
Summary: The laptop is ok overall if the screen does not have the problem. Light weight, small, battery life is only around 2 hours but more than enough for my needs. Havent test much because of the following issue. I spent several hours to update it to windows 8.1 and setup for my personal use. But after several hours of use I notice the screen self clicking problem at one single spot near the up left corner of the screen.
Summary: Did a lot of research prior to buying. Wanted something light for travel. This unit though was very slow. It took 3 days to download 48 Microsoft updates. Had to return which I normally wouldn't do. Even next to modem signal would drop too.
