Disappointing

Noelgasm, Amazon

  • Summary: I recently purchased this item, yes it looks pretty and well thought through. But personally I think Windows 8 is a massive mistake. I would describe it as a load of wank. It is incredibly confusing to use and completely counter intuitive. Especially when it comes to downloads.

good screen but poor keyboard and touch pad

ramraj, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this laptop from one sale a day. It looks well built, screen size is enormous. Screen is bright. Charge holds for more than 3 hours while working. But the keyboard has issues. The space bar does not space unless you hit it in the center hard.

  • Summary: Thirty days after buying it, the spacebar stopped working. Apparently this is a common problem with these notebooks and I am unable to find a fix.

I Thought it Would Be Great . . . . . But Alas.

You've Got To Check It Out, Amazon

  • Summary: First the Good: * It's light & thin, easy to carry around. * It's got a better than average CPU Chip. Now the Not So Good: * No doors on the bottom to access the RAM or the Hard Drive. You have to unscrew & unclip the entire bottom of the machine to get to the HDD.

Bought on price.

John Hastie, Amazon
8 May 2014
  • Summary: I bought this laptop on price, specification and reputation - as Asus did the original builds for the well received Nexus tablets.But I would not recommend this laptop. It comes with a plethora of what I consider to be at best junk and at worst bloat software pre-installed.

It's OK but I wouldn't recommend it

Georgi Georgiev, Amazon
8 July 2013
  • Summary: The keyboard is total piece of crap (as you can read in many other reviews). If you are chatting/typing text ... you will be annoyed, but if it's just for watching movies and internet browsing ... it's ideal. The parameters are good for the price. Windows 8 is sooooo confusing, really big mess.
