Don't buy this junk. Save a little more for something that works.

Summary: This was the worst purchase I have ever made. My siblings and I purchased this for my mom last year for Christmas. It has yet to be functional. Main problem was Windows 8, which is NOT user friendly when converting from Windows 7. This along with some Automatic BS that always tends to show up when you don't want it--makes this incredibly frustrating for day-to-day tasks.
Summary: I have used few laptops so far.My first one was compaq, which lasted 5 years and i decided to give it to charity and purchase a new one. The second was one HP which lasted for 6-7 years and it was in perfect condition. Then I decided to say good bye to my HP and buy this (JUNK) laptop from ASUS. It was working fine for the first couple of months, then it started showing problems. It constantly froze, and i thought this is normal as because laptop does freezes at time.
Summary: Ordered this a week ago after reading so many good reviews. After a few hours of use i got a green line on the left of the screen from top to bottom that doesn't goes away, and some blurry zones in other parts of the screen. I connected it trough dvi to my tv and all this is gone, so is the screen that is damaged.
Summary: What a sick joke this excuse for a product is, and this is all due to the worse than useless Windows Hate operating system which Microbug has inflicted upon it. If you are able and prepared to install Linux Mint, you may still find that the hardware is actually worth paying for. Mint is no good for me, because I needed the machine specifically to run Windows-based commercial software.
Summary: Pros: Fast boot/start up time Good battery life Cons: Doggy touchpad, very confusing and gets you where you don want frequently! poor graphic cheap plastic chasis specs don't match what it says on advertisement No bluetooth despite amazon says bluetooth 4.0 ! Amazon asked me to contact Asus to sort missed blutooth hardware! Asus official website says blutooth is optional!
Summary: Hi Guys, I would like to share my experience with you regarding company, because for product i have already shared my thoughts. This product comes with International Warranty and this is true. I have bought this product for my kids and we all went out of India (France) but there we found some problem in laptop and I have discussed with Customer Care (France) and me finally couriered my laptop for repair.
