Summary: I bought the ASUS computer two years ago mostly because it was one of the cheapest laptops at best buy available, only costing about 500 dollars. If I had to give an overall review I would say it is a good solid laptop. Certainly not the best, but definitely not bad. I would recommend this laptop to students on a lower budget, who need a reliable computer for research or writing papers. One huge drawback is the lack of a light up keyboard.
Summary: I bought this for a friend who needed to replace an ancient dying machine. If you are looking for a cheap laptop to watch movies, browse the web, listen to music, and handle documents- this one is capable. No complaints. It works, and looks nice. If you are looking for a machine for gaming and large format image files... then why are you looking at this model? :P I bought a refurbished model for less than $250. A whole laptop for less than one paycheck! Whoo hoo!
Very good Computer and I got a pretty good deal too

Summary: When I first got it, I seriously considered sending it back. I have been using windows XP for a long time and windows 8 was just way too different. I do really like the sound cards in the Asus and that is why I bought this computer. I am a Musician and DJ so that is important for my work. Slowly I am getting used to using the windows 8. The only complaint I really have is that the touch pad is a bit hard to use on this computer.
Summary: for the pricei am very happy with this computer. i use this laptop for work as an AV tech to show powerpoint presentations through projectors and now i can use HDMI to use HD if needed. windows 8 takes some getting used to but overall has proven n ot to be the greatest hinderance.
Summary: this laptop had just what I needed, just a couple of USB ports as this is my entertainment laptop and not for work. screen is really clear. the keys on the bottom row need extra pressure to work, which is my only complaint.
Summary: Well this is not a high power laptop but it runs most things. If you want to play games on it works very well with simpler games like leauge of legends. That being said if you try to do more than one thing at a time its going to run slow. Real slow.
