Nice but Slooooow as purchased.

  • Summary: Got this laptop for $200 new on a black Friday special. Very high quality ASUS but the "Green" 5,400 rpm HD is so slow it took 75 seconds for Windows 7 to reach the password screen. Replaced it with a 120G SSD. Very usable machine now for still less than $300, recommend with 5 stars after SSD mod, incredible 5 hour battery life is now even longer.

Works great for my needs

  • Summary: I bought this Asus model over a year ago and have had no problems with it. I mainly use it for surfing the net, some e-mail and a few online games thrown in. I have not used the camera/microphone function much, but it appears to do the job when provided with adequate lighting. When just playing online games or surfing the net, the battery will last a tad over 5 hours and charges quickly even while the computer is in use.

Great Value Budget Notebook

B. Webb "bfishing", Amazon

  • Summary: Overall, I am very happy with this laptop. It has a lot to offer for such a modest price! In spite of a few minor complaints, this is a great system, worth more than the asking price. I was very much attracted by the price but was a little wary - I was unsure what compromise might have been made to drive down the price. Did not want to spend too much because I only need a light-duty machine for Internet, E-Mail, and playing DVD movies while away from home traveling.

Nice for the money.

  • Summary: I got one this model on Black Friday 2011. Mine had a small problem with the "5" key not working in the top row. I took it back where I purchased it from and they got it straightened out. Since then it has been behaving very well. It runs quite cool and quiet. The screen is brightly lit; almost too bright for me even at its lowest setting.

A reliable and user friendly laptop

  • Excerpt: First off I should apologise for the lack of tech specs this review will cover, especially as I'm the kind of person whose head starts to spin when those kinds of numbers get spun off by the more tech savvy. Instead this review is based solely on my experience with the product. Despite originally getting this laptop as part of my phone contract renewal, it has continued to serve me well aswell as currently is my laptop I use for the majority of my work.
  • Pros: A good laptop for work / study, user friendly
  • Cons: Lacks the power of newer machines

  • Excerpt: I bought this laptop about 8 months ago (from all places ASDA) so have used it quite extensively. It was as a direct replacement for an older (3 year old) laptop that I had given to my son, but my selection criteria was pretty basic: o Large Screen o Reasonable performance o CHEAP o Wireless networking o CHEAP o DVD Rewriter (minimum) o CHEAP I did have a very limited budget, and with the discount I managed to get, this one worked out to be less than £300 What I like...
  • Pros: Battery life, big clear screen, price
  • Cons: Speakers, weight

  • Summary: Pros. 1. Best value for money. 2. Really fast processor at this price range.(The processor is not blazing fast, but really does its job). 3. Radeon HD 6290 is amazing; graphics looks crystal clear. 4. 15.6 inch clear bright screen. Blu-Ray movies looks fantastic. 5. Unbelievable battery backup. I'm getting almost 6 hours. 6. Asus ice cool technology does its job as promised. The palm resting area remains cool even after long use. 7.
