Business Laptop

 

Purchased for use on the road for giving presentations. Have been using for just over a week now. General processing performance is fast even with larger CAD drawings and programs utilizing formulas or macros. Key board is a little clunky in feel....

Great for the Money

 

Good performance for 300 bucks on a Black Friday deal. Light. Decent battery life

Left mouse button (touch pad button) was originally a little tight...but it loosened over time. The speakers are under powered, and I had a lot of feedback problems with the mic when I would close the lid to sleep the machine

You Can't Go Wrong Wth This One!

Beware the Keyboard

 

Overall a good value - unless you need to type on the keyboard. It is the WORST laptop keyboard I have used over the past 30 years.

Great Laptop for price

 

Overall, I am very pleased with this new Laptop. More then meets my expectations given the price I paid.

I really like Asus, they make high quality products at a very good price. I was lucky and was able to get this pc for only $320 via newegg's spotlight deal! Boot speed is very fast, screen is great, Win 7 is a great OS (coming from XP). There is a...

The main typing area is too far to the left, so my hands do not naturally land on the home keys (F,J), and the home key nubs do not stick up high enough, so I often loose my position on the keyboard. Battery life is not spectacular, but still pretty...

Unfortunate

 

Asus has made me very happy with their DESKTOP internal products like motherboards and graphics cards ; The laptop software seems fine

Hardware - cheap, flimsy. Very flexible keyboard...glitchy touchpad, glitchy space bar key ; Really, I'm returning this ONLY because it seems the hardware is weak and glitchy. sad ; However, I should have been more careful. NO ONE has posted reviews of...

First ASUS, great product, love it!

 

I have been using this laptop for about a month now & it's great! The price was amazing & the laptop itself outdoes itself for its value. Using this to replace my ten year old Gateway desktop, loved that desktop too, wouldn't change this new choice....

GREAT DEAL

 

I have been using this laptop for about a month now and it's great! The price is amazing and the laptop itself outdoes itself for its value. The only problem I have with this computer is that the mouse pad is a bit weird. It isn't the most responsive,...
