Worst Amazon Buying Experience -- Ever

Daniel Wallace, Amazon
12 April 2014
  • Summary: I had an opportunity to get a used version of this laptop for my son's 21st birthday, but splurged, got the new one. We opened it together -- very excited -- turned it on . . . and discovered that not only was it USED, they had neglected to wipe the drive: we had to know "Jennifer's" password to get in . . . Not knowing Jennifer, I sent it back, and did not opt for a replacement.

Way too slow.

Ron, Amazon

  • Summary: I usually don't pay much attention to the speed of my computer but this one is the slowest computer I have ever used. Even to just shut it down, after the screen goes black it still takes at least another minute to finish shutting down. I would not recommend this Asus at all.

Just what I wanted

baudyhallee, Amazon
13 January 2014
  • Summary: This laptop with Ubuntu 12.04 is great. There's a learning curve but nothing too extensive. There are tons of info including videos on how to use the Linux software on the net. I had a problem with my wifi dropping so upgraded to 12.10, and that seems to be working better. If it doesn't I'll upgrade to 13.04. I like ASUS products and wanted to use a non-Windows-Apple-Android OS. I use and have used open source programs so that wasn't a big switch for me either.

Cheap and good

Leon, Amazon
3 January 2014
  • Summary: I love this PC. The spec's aren't good, but after installing Windows 8 on it, I got what I wanted, a quick, cheap, lightweight and super portable PC to get me out of any hurry. Of course it won't run a lot of really demanding software, but it get's the job done. For the next buyer, consider buying the one with the touchscreen. If the touchscreen it's not for you, then this is the one.

Perfect computer for a frequent traveler

J. Lawson, Amazon
18 December 2013
  • Summary: I had heard that changing from a windows xp os to a windows 8 would be very difficult but I have found that it was quite easy. I needed to replace my ASUS net book that I had used for 4 years as my traveling computer. I chose the ASUS X201E because I had been happy with the ASUS that I had been using. The X201E is an 11.6 inch model which means that I have a bigger screen and a bigger keyboard which is a definite plus, and the larger size has not meant a heavier weight.

Worst Customer Service: Buy literally any other computer

Adriana Teran, Amazon
16 December 2013
  • Summary: I bought a brand new laptop. I need my computer for work. The charger broke almost immediately. No one at the company can tell me where I can buy a replacement in the country. I was told it would take a month to order a new charger. So now I'm left without a computer for upwards of a month. No one at the company seems to care. This is the worst experience I've ever had with any product. Customer service is incompetent, unprofessional and uncaring.

  • Summary: I was happy with the computer until one day it just didn't want to turn on any more and it happened only 5 days after the 30day return policy, now i have to deal with asus which they probably want me to send it for repair and i wil be without a computer for a week or two....i guess u get what you pay for and that's what happened here... i would consider this a cheap computer and will not buy one anymore from this buyer..

Excellent for the price.

W. Neumann, Amazon
11 December 2013
  • Summary: This replaces my beloved Dell D410, which survived many drops and crashes over 8 years, but whose screen was recently cracked by an airport baggage handler. The Asus is cheaper, faster, lighter, longer battery life. It would be perfect if the keys had the same feel as my Dell, and the touchpad were smaller and not integrated with the mouse keys. But for the price it is excellent, and it runs Ubuntu like a charm.
