Summary: Absolutely the most expensive piece of crap that Ive ever bought on Amazon. I selected this product because of its storage and premium processor yet this hunk of junk moves at the speed of a turtle. Not to mention I keep having to fight the "proxy server" setting to get online. What the hell do I need a proxy server for and why is it constantly turning itself on??????? I cant stand this machine.
Summary: This product is really not working. This first time I brought it, the screen was not working. After returning it, I received another one that have USB issue now. I believe this model was flawed with issues. Sorry Asus, I will never be your customer again. (Amazon should not be selling this laptop).
Summary: The laptop itself is fine, it has a great design and quality. Display and performance was also satisfying. But unfortunately, I found it not working properly for twice, which made me replace once and eventually refund it. Had to spend too much time and energy to deal with this laptop. Hope I don't get broken item again for the next purchase in Amazon!
which is great if you like having a bunch of useless apps

Summary: A reasonably priced gaming computer. as long as it's plugged in, it runs Diablo 3 at optimal settings without missing a beat. Comes with windows 8, which is great if you like having a bunch of useless apps, and no calculator. Windows 8 is really bad in itself but this is a laptop review so I won't go there. This sexy thing is sleek and light. One thing that can be a problem is the power cord has a fat box at the plug.
Summary: I have had a ton of issues with this laptop. I have had to wipe it several times due to issues with programs and the operating system. Granted windows 8 isn't my favorite OS and the issues that come along with that are not the laptops fault. The design of the laptop is sleek and it is very light weight, however. For the price and the components inside the laptop, it seems clunky and slow at times. Programs that shouldn't occasionally crash.
Summary: Hi all, typing on this laptop right now. These other reviews helped me make my decision regarding the buy so I do want to pay this forward. Background: Graduated college student with a $1000 budget to replace a 1-year-old A55A Asus laptop purchased from Amazon. Was looking for something mainly with better graphics and stronger wireless receiver to be completely honest. Also, I'm not tech-savvy at all, just your average college student level computer knowledge.
Summary: Overall, I'm quite pleased with this laptop. Works great, fast, more HD space than I'll ever use, good sound. However, I don't care for the combination headphone/microphone port....with earbuds I can hear myself breathing.....very distracting & annoying. Not so noticeable with my Sony light-weight headphones. Also I wish the charging port was on the right side rather than the left, but if my outlet was on that side maybe I wouldn't care.
