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: This computer is unusable with Windows 8. It is always updating and never can connect to the internet. When it does work, it keeps jumping to its "Start" window with all its irrelevant functions. Maybe I'll try to install Linux. BUYER BEWARE! UPDATE 9-11-13 I finally installed Linux (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) on the X55C. I am very satisfied with the laptops usability now. It goes out of hibernation relatively quickly and it connects to the internet with no issues.
Summary: I purchased this computer two months ago and the sound has quit working except when I plug in earphones. It tells me I need to update four drivers. I took the computer back to Best Buy and they wanted me to pay $30 for each update. I told them to forget it. I would not buy another Asus computer. Windows 8 is a big mistake; looking for a replacement computer using Windows 7.
Summary: After a using it for a while, this piece of trash won't turn on!!! This brand is a very crappy computer, not worth the price, and not even worth $10 for the problems it creates!!!!!!! Don't buy this piece of rubbish!!!! If you search on google for "Ansus won't turn on", you will see many people have this problem!!!!
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.
