Summary: Not the best computer, but for the money its good. Often it needs to reset and update. it freezes up when playing some games my daughter plays, but for basic internet use and printing and such, it's fine. The charging cord did not fit well, and I have to finagle it to get it to charge. But hey..
ASUS was recommended for it's study build and design

Summary: The device itself was what I wanted. It lived up to expectations. The trouble with it was the Battery. The battery did not keep it's charge for very long. After 30 mins. the fully charged battery would be completely discharged.
Windows update nightmare, but otherwise a nice laptop
7 June 2014
Summary: I didn't buy this laptop through Amazon, but I figured I'd leave a review anyway. After picking this up at a large box store, I brought it home and booted it up. The initial Windows 8 setup was pretty quick. A few minutes after getting used to the new Windows interface, Windows wanted to update.
Summary: Asus as a brand is great, this laptop looks awesome. As for functionality, it's lacking. It's slow to open simple things such as the web browser. I even did a clean install of Windows 8 to rid the laptop of bloatware, but I had the same result. Pay more for an i5 quad or maybe a different i3
Great budget laptop, with one annoying issue right out of the box.

Summary: The good: -Arrived as scheduled (shipped overnight coast to coast) -No dead/bright pixels -ASUS packaging is nice and simple. -It's big enough not to feel flimsy but slim and light enough to be portable. -It's pretty good looking. The design is simple but classy.
Summary: ASUS like many other PC makers ships their machines with a bunch of bloatware. The people responsible for this are out of touch. Windows 8 is actually good. I did not notice a significant change in 8.1. Restoring the Windows Start button is almost a joke.
Just Ok laptop, in that price you can find better deals
