less than a year of light use - screw fell out, pads on bottom fell off, key randomly got weird

B. Jensen "Brian", Amazon
15 March 2014
  • Summary: i'm not sure if it's windows 8 or asus, but i have also had lots of problems with crashing/freezing/deleting parts of files that i had saved. one file i had been writing in for months daily, and it was turned to nothing but spaces. this might have been due to a bug from Evernote software interacting with what i can only say is the terrible, relationship-with-windows-ending Windows 8.

Disappointing

Noelgasm, Amazon
28 May 2013
  • 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. So far I have downloaded some systems to this computer.

good screen but poor keyboard and touch pad

ramraj, Amazon
16 May 2013
  • 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. I checked to see if anything was stuck below the space bar, but nothing I can see.

Hate this thing

  • 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
23 December 2012
  • 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. You then have to pull the motherboard to get to the RAM. * No DVD RW Drive. * The plastic bezel surrounding the screen does not provide the support that it should.

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. A google search of " asus junk software" results in over 900,000 hits.

  • Summary: Assume it was a try-on so sent it back. The laptop may have been perfect, but it wasn't what I ordered.

Can't Type

TONI "AB", Amazon
15 November 2013
  • Summary: This is great if you don't want to type because its so thin that when you type the wrists seem to trigger alternative actions. The pc starts doing odd things like minimising or jumping or whatever. This makes it impossibe to type more than a few words before resetting things. It is therefore not fit for purpose as a proper laptop.
