Light weight, has a couple of annoying flaws.

Satyabhama/Margalo Ashley-Farrand, Amazon

  • Summary: The Asus is light weight and easy to travel with. It comes with Windows 8, which is an abomination. The only way I can deal with it is to use an app which makes it operate like Windows 7. The machine itself has one significant flaw, which is that it has no signal light when the Caps Lock is on. Very annoying when trying to put in passwords.

  • Summary: My son has been asking for a laptop since he was 6 and I just got him this for his 11th birthday. It does everything that he needs it for and has worked flawlessly since he got it last month. That's saying allot since he's on it every day!

Great ultra book for the money.

Dennis McDonald, Amazon

  • Summary: This is a very nice little ultrabook. It is not too small like the 12" ones but is very portable. I wish they offered it with a ssd but for 235.00 you can't beat it. It is also fairly quick for a celeron processor. I highly recommend it. I knocked off a star for the touch pad and no ssd.

Great Laptop!

Paige C., Amazon
5 May 2014
  • Summary: I have been a big Asus fan for years now. Great product for low cost. We bought this for our 18 year old daughter and she loves it! Everything loads quickly, jumps online quickly, and so far it has been a smooth operating laptop. Our daughter does not use it for gaming or large programs. She uses it mostly for getting online, socializing and writing her books. She is the author of INK (The Ink Trilogy), which can be found in Amazon Books.

Definitely worth what I pad.

Lexington Alexander, Amazon
29 April 2014
  • Summary: I spent about $1,000 on my laptop several years ago. This laptop was $300.00 and several times better than what I was using before. I think it got a lot of negative comments, not because of the machine, but because of Windows 8. The first thing that I did was uninstall all of the software that I didn't need. There's a bunch of stuff from ASUS that is preloaded. I also opted out of a lot of Windows 8 tracking stuff.

  • Summary: The laptop works exactly as described. My daughter would have liked 8g, for more storage space. But we bought zip drive and that corrected her storage issue.

Good Product as Advertised

Amazon Customer, Amazon
25 March 2014
  • Summary: I had a real problem deciding between this and a Toshiba 13.3 Chromebook. For $25 more I got this full-featured notebook. The biggest problem faced is Windows 8, since it is significantly different from Windows 7. Fortunately, I was able to download Google Chrome, and am using that for most purposes, until I learn Windows 8. A new free download of Windows 8.1, upgrade 1, should be coming out soon. It will cut RAM use down significantly.

Not Good for Win 8 - Great for Linux!

Alcides Rivarola, Amazon
22 March 2014
  • Summary: Just after the 2nd or 3rd time I turn it on the windows begin to froze all the time. I couldn't do anything at all. All the programs were really slow. So as I'm not a great fan of Windows I installed Linux Open Suse on it. It works just fine, smooth with the programs and browsing on Internet. So I will suggest if you are going to use Windows, don't buy it. But if you intend to install Linux on it. Just go ahead.
