Excellent Budget Computer

George H., Newegg
29 November 2015
  • Summary: I got this computer to upgrade an older laptop that was my previous workhorse. First thing I did was remove the default OS and install Linux Ubuntu. System runs great! Currently only issue is Blue Tooth, which does not work by default. You can find fixes on the internet if it is necessary.
  • Pros: -Great Linux Machine -Excellent price -Great amount of hard drive space -fast for most common applications
  • Cons: -None so far

Snappy Little Laptop for Cheap

Shad B., Newegg
4 November 2015
  • Summary: Still a good buy though. I would probably get this again if I were to get it at a similar price.
  • Pros: For the price I ended up getting it for, this is an awesome laptop. I use it for school and it works really well for it. I also use it for Light 2D gaming. It does this well, and only really gets hot when im gaming.
  • Cons: There are a few complaints I have about this. The microphone stopped working when I upgraded to Windows 10 (This may have been something I did though) I do not like the position of the trackpad. I accidentally get it in the way with the gestures all the time. The keyboard misses keystrokes at tim...

Solid ASUS with i5-4200U

Alexander V., Newegg
2 November 2015
  • Summary: Slow HD but if you will change it for HD with 7200 or SSD the laptop will fly. Power supply is ugly. It's a brick with direct plug so it's not convenient.
  • Pros: This is a very good laptop. It's very low noise, quite. Good processor performance. Good GPU performance. Stylish. Low weight. It's a big plus if you need to carry it around. windows 8.1 + classic shell = almost windows 7. So it's OK. Recovery partition was present and I was able to create recove...
  • Cons: Glossy screen.

Very disappointed - SUPER slow since the day I received it.

Kean J. Gardner, Amazon

  • Summary: Very frustrated with how slow this laptop is. I have only had it for about 8-9 months, and since the day I bought it I've been utterly confused with how terribly slow it performs.

Frankly A Disaster

Kelly Lewis, Amazon
4 September 2015
  • Summary: This laptop has turned out to be one of my worst buys. The trouble I have had with it has not been worth anywhere near the cost of purchase. I have had this laptop for a year now, and when I first got it, the keyboard shorted and failed within a month or two.

NO Recovery Partition w/ Refurbs!

Theresa D., Newegg
19 August 2015
  • Pros: I think Haswell performance vs. AMD is better. Once recovery partition is created by ASUS and I can make a recovery disc I'll be a much happier customer.
  • Cons: Just FYI. If you buy a refurbished ASUS computer buyer beware. They delete the recovery partition on refurbs. Ugh! And you only have a 90 day warranty to ship item back to them to reset to default factory settings and create recovery partition. Only then can you make a copy of recovery disc on at...

I also have Geek Squad Protection, On July 31, 2015 after spending over half a day with the Geek Squad trying to fix it...

Great computer, horrible software problems

Rebecca P., Newegg
25 July 2015
  • Pros: Touchscreen is great.
  • Cons: Comes with Win8. NOT Win8.1. Requires 167 Windows Updates for security purposes before you can upgrade to windows 8.1. You're required to upgrade all of these before you can use anything in the App Store. Like, oh, maybe I want to download skype? NOPE. NOT ALLOWED. And the 167 Windows Updates wil...
