Summary: I have had boxes come in much worse condition and the laptop still be in great shape. This model much have a very delicate screen. Will be sending this model back.
Pros: Price - Shipping speed
Cons: Box arrived in decent condition with the exception of one crushed corner and normal shipping wear. Packing was alright but after powering up the screen was cracked and there was a large white block covering 1/6 of the screen in the left corner.
Summary: I ordered this model specifically because it also stated that it included a backlit keyboard. IT DOES NOT. Might be great for those not looking for that feature. Disappointed and frustrated I now have to return and start the search over.
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: I was enjoying my new ASUS laptop very much ... for about 6 weeks. Then the LCD backlight started going out intermittentently! I contacted ASUS customer service and was told I should send it for repair. I then had to spend $70 to express it overnight to California from Florida where I live because this is my business computer and I need it back quickly.
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
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.
Summary: I bought this for my replacement for my wife. Unfortunately with the standard setting on windows 7 the computer is nearly unusable. I was able to get it to at least work for her by changing the video option to the lowest settings and added 8 gb of memory and it works but we would not buy this computer again.
