I bought this computer for my wife and she was stoked until after a month she went to close the screen and it just cracked. right there. ASUS didn't honour the warranty because they said we were responsible and, after contacting consumer affairs and getting very little help, I am replacing the screen myself. The problem is the casing. It's very bendy and offers very little to no protection. It may as well be the poor little screen with some paint on it. After I install the new screen I will probably fibreglass the screen casing to offer some protection. Contact consumer affairs if this happens or you local government agency because they have now started a accumulation record for this model.
My advice... don't purchase the ASUS 501A, and if you do, do move the screen lid too much.
