Summary: I've had my Asus laptop for some years now and its never really been very friendly, inasmuch as its thrown more Wobblies than a doll with a loose head, I've had to reinstall windows at least five times, through the HDD partition which has a copy of win 7 O/S. make it pretty easy, albeit slow to reinstall.
Excerpt: Having gone down the route of purchasing the branded laptops (hp's, Compaq, iMac) and being bitterly disappointed with them all, we (as a family turned to the lesser brand). I am currently studying at university and so plucked up the courage to go for the Asus and I am beyond satisfied. It's light, quick, and bright and powerful which for a laptop is surely what you need!!
Summary: I bought this model of note book from Electrical 123 in August 2011. It has the I5 processor and 8gb of ram - because of this the battery life is very low, about 45 minutes. The sound in appalling, even on the highest settings I can hardly hear it. I have tried to alter the sound in the bios but it will not allow me to do so. The other issue I have with the computer is that the time keeps resetting to a date in 2010, which creates problems in accessing certain web pages.
Excerpt: Well after many years only using Acer laptops and always recomending Acer to my friends and family, when the time came to upgrade again I thought this time I would have a change. Only that the price was right and very similar to the price I was going to pay for the Acer equivilent I thought I would go for a change. I obviously read many reviews about the product, more about the make really, there did not seem to be a problem in purchasing the Asus X52F.
Excerpt: I bought this when my Acer laptop played up from new. so I returned it to the store and I was offered the ASUS as an alternative. It took ages to load everything up but once up and running very fast access. We have BT infinity internet. very fast and copes well with all internet access. although this crashed on me once, I found the reboot to square one very easy to use. The plus side is the technical department is in the Netherlands.
Pros: East to use, well spaced keys, good web cam .
Excerpt: From using this peice of equipment for a year i have found it easy to use. This laptop comes with windows 7 and has sufficient programmes. The software is very good and allows quick upload and download speeds. This is a good buy as it is quite cheap compared to leading market competitors, which are basically similar laptops but because it isnt "Sony or Apple it is fairly priced. The Asus is aesthetically pleasing and feels comfortable to use.
Pros: Good quality screen, comfortable, reliable and quick .
