Summary: Bottom Line Up Front: I went through THREE of these before I just paid a little more money and got the Dell. Really Wanted to Like it… Just Was Not Quite Good Enough. So, if you don't know, ASUS makes system boards for a lot of other computer manufacturers.
I do not recommend that anyone purchase this laptop

Summary: I bought this laptop in May, 2014. Overall it's been disappointing for the following reasons. 1. Battery life is mediocre, about 2 to 3 hours. 2. Haswell i3 processor is not particularly fast.
Horrible Customer Service. Pray you don't have problems.

Summary: ASUS has the single worst customer service and warranty program I have ever had to deal with. If you do buy their product, you'd better pray that you don't have any problems with it, because you won't get any help from ASUS. In the year that I had one of their laptops, mine broke down 5 times.
at best, an open box item that had been repackaged

Summary: This item from Tiger Direct arrived in a box sealed with an ASUS sticker. When I opened it there where minor scratches inside and out suggesting this was, at best, an open box item that had been repackaged. It was a gift, so I didn't have time to return it. So Tiger Direct one, this customer zero.
