  • Summary: It would be nice to have been warned that the OS would not be a viable version in the description...
  • Pros: the computer itself is fine.
  • Cons: the OS which was supposed to be included is not activated and has no ID code. AKA Another $119 needed for a new activation code.

  • Summary: I see now that I'm not the only one with this issue. No way I could of foreseen this and I knew what I was getting into with a Refurb. Hopefully ASUS will make this relatively painless.
  • Pros: Terrific hardware package at great price.
  • Cons: Hard dive dies after 4 weeks of use and I'm now out of the RMA window.

Very displeased

N/A, Newegg
16 September 2013
  • Summary: This product has thus far turned out to be a terrible waste of money. I picked this because I needed a new laptop for a decent price. I have always loved Asus products. They are typically reliable in my experience. That is why I chose this one. I was apparently quite mistaken in this case.
  • Pros: Decent price for what you get
  • Cons: Windows 8

lots of issues

Zimothy, Amazon
2 August 2013
  • Summary: i'm pretty mad about this, tbh. as soon as I got the laptop i was having issues with programs 'not responding' or my internet stopping. i have to keep skype open at all times because it's the only way I know if I stop having a connection. it doesn't even make any sense because when that happens i open the networks and click on mine - not even to disconnect and reconnect. i just click it and the internet is restored. so that sucks. and programs crash pretty often.

  • Summary: when I first got the lap top i was unhappy that i could not use the computor for more than 40 without it shutting down on me causing me to loose all the work i put in to my class work than i had to pay another 60 dollars to have it fixed by the people that sold it to me so i was not at all happy with the lap top at all or the extra money i had to spend on repairs i would not buy another computor from this co

Ok computer for word prossesing

Justin Brian, Amazon
24 May 2013
  • Summary: I highly recommend that you DO NOT PURCHASE THIS COMPUTER. First the battery life when you just purchase it the battery will be strong, and after a month really bad. 2nd the graphics card turns off so much and you have to reset your computer to turn it back on. Also all the Windows 8 pad gestures get really annoying so now I'm using it with a mouse. And I'll never forget the time I got blue screen on this.
