Excellent budget notebook

Joshua D. Washburn "jwashbur", Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: This laptop has been great for our school. We purchased 8 nearly identical to this model. All of them are still running great, now with Windows 8.1. The only negative thing I would say is that I don't like how the hard drive and RAM are very difficult to access. You have to take the entire bottom of the laptop apart. It's no convenient at all for upgrades and repairs.

Great for class

Jack Kerr, Amazon
30 March 2014
  • Summary: This lovely little thing is super portable and light weight. The headphone jack and power outlet are on the sides, which is a little inconvenient, and it comes running Windows 8. It makes a great class computer, because it can run things like word and chrome. It isn't powerful enough to run Netflix. Not a good main computer, but good for staying on task while studying. For a cheap school computer, this is perfect. For a gaming monster, terrible.

Better once i put Lubuntu on it.

MichaelSeebach, Amazon
9 February 2014
  • Summary: I grabbed this from warehouse deals where it was obviously returned by an unsatisfied user. With the somewhat limited processor Windows 8 felt fairly crippled. The AMD APU helped make up for the slow processor when it came to playing high definition video so the laptop was okay. I wiped out Windows 8 and loaded Lubuntu, the LXDE based Ubuntu variant. I had to make a couple tweaks to get the faster AMD graphics driver and get audio functioning properly.

This Computer is a POS

Shaanon Lindauer "Shaanon M. Lindauer", Amazon

  • Summary: Yeah, you get what you pay for, it's true. However, this computer's keyboard only works intermittently and it couldn't be any slower in processing activities. I really feel like I wasted my money on this POS. I can hardly use it.

Think twice

L, Amazon
28 November 2013
  • Summary: I have never written any review on Amazon before, but I felt so compelled to do so for this horrible little laptop. Even typing this review I need to punch the space bar with my index finger between each word in order for it to avoid grouping all the words together and the track-pad randomly loses responsiveness for no apparent reason. It seems like this 'netbook' or whatever you want to call it is incapable of even the simplest of tasks.

  • Summary: Good functional laptop despite its effeminate aesthetics. I would be reluctant to take this model to my public library though is great for home use.

Portatile Asus molto valido

cricrocri25, Ciao
2 July 2014
  • Summary: Questo portatile ce l’abbiamo in ufficio ma non lo usiamo tantissimo. Era stato vinto dal titolare ad una festa l’anno scorso pertanto non so dire il prezzo. Questo è tutto nero, come estetica diciamo è piuttosto “raffinato” ed elegante. Ecco vi elenco un po’ di dati e caratteristiche… Questo è il modello Asus X501U-XX025X La nuova Serie ASUS X501 è un'avanzata soluzione mobile che integra gli ultimi processori di seconda generazione AMD Dual Core, che permettono di...
