Summary: The computer did not work out of the box. Windows 8, which I did not want, was preinstalled and the backlite for the monitor was not working. Had to mail the product to ASUS in California for repair. Also had to pay the postage as ASUS did not authorized postage. Not happy with this experience.
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.
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...
Summary: I have bought several models like 6 laptop asus and acer, for 330 - 350 $, and this is the worst... very slow, came with a dead usb port... Really asus, my family have 3 x X55A and they are very good laptops, but this one X55U came with windows 8 very slow, i installed windows 7... and still slow...
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.
Summary: I bought this laptop thinking I could play a few games on it portably but any game I try on it Is like really laggy And low fps I don't recommend this computer if u play want to game on it it just can't handle. Really only for Internet access an planning
Summary: It would have been better, IF...the product had come with the power cables that matched American power outlets. Buying the correct cables after the fact cost quite a bit, negating the "deal" Amazon offered on this laptop. No response from Customer Service.
This laptop was sold with a European power cord and I had to buy a new one to use it

Summary: I purchased this item for Christmas. My son opened it on Christmas Eve and we found the power cord was for a European outlet. Amazon was quick to tell me to call the manufacturer to fix the problem.
