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

  • 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.

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

You've Got To Check It Out, Amazon
26 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.

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.

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.
