it is a good laptop, but the manufacturers support was a bit ...

  • Summary: After having the laptop for about 30 days, the speakers suddenly stopped working. (I'm not the type of person to blast their music either). When I contacted Asus about repairs or returning it, they sent me in circles. In the end I decided that it wasn't worth the hassle to run in circles.

Great price but it comes with a 220v power supply.

  • Summary: The price is great but the 220 power supply doesn't work in the US. Luckily I own a computer store and had a used 110 supply that works with it.

  • Summary: The laptop itself seems to be ok (bought for wife as gift). Windows 8 is a pain in ass to navagate through. I she would have told me at first how she hated it, I would have probably returned it. I think we will install windows 7 on it.

very slow

mark s hamelink sr, Amazon
23 January 2014
  • Summary: I bought this laptop because of the low price but was really disappointed at how slow it is. My 4 yr old desk top pc is probably 3-4 times as fast as this laptop. I wonder if I uninstall a bunch of the unneeded programs if it will speed it up some?

  • Summary: I am not completely satisfied with this computer. The most annoying part is that the speakers on the bottom on the sound so if you ever have it on your lap, the sound is MUCH quieter and muffled.

Good machine, bad touchpad

Travis C., Newegg
13 December 2013
  • Summary: So far it is a good laptop in all aspects except the touchpad. I would recommend to anyone who plans to primarily use a mouse. If not, purchase something else.
  • Pros: We bought three for work on a deal. For the price, seems to be a good bargain and speed is good.
  • Cons: The mouse pad is a bad design. As others mentioned, it is very sensitive. But the worst part of it is that the touch area and the buttons are all one piece of plastic and when you try to click either button, it tilts the whole touchpad invariably causing an area of the trackpad to make contact an...

Moderate price for a moderate laptop

Peter R., Newegg
21 November 2013
  • Summary: Shouldn't be this expensive, but not bad for basic functions of a computer.
  • Pros: Simple interface Good size screen Average performance Good sound quality
  • Cons: Start scrren function was obviously meant for touch capability, kind of begs the question "Why install it on a non-touch capable device?" The touch pad is a little overly active (I use a USB mouse anyway) CPU is too slow to be of any use other than basic functions, and under-powered, older games ...
