Pretty good for a refurb

 

The OS it comes with (Windows 8) is not the OS key embedded in the UEFI bios. It comes with no recovery DVDs. The recovery parition does not work. Making a factory recovery DVD from in windows does not work - since it tries to use the recovery...

Bright, sharp screen - no dead pixels ; Computer is very fast after replacing the HDD ; Keyboard and touch pad are in comfortable and appropriate positions ; Computer came looking brand new ; Long battery life as advertised

Hard drive is a huge bottleneck - slows down the whole computer. I replaced with an SSD ; Screen is the glossy kind, so glare is pretty bad ; I have concerns over the legitimacy of the OS installed ; No way to re-install the OS

Excellent laptop, no complaints

 

After having a HORRIBLE experience with (a different) laptop, I exchanged it for this Asus. I have had it about a month now and it works wonderfully. Amazing battery life, runs sims 3 great, and has been fast at processing whatever I've been doing.

Good Price but expectation not meet

 

The price is so good for the Intel I5. However,the laptop has low quality. The battery is weak, holds about 3 hour running by itself. the keyboard is hard to type. The button up, down, left ,right are small to touch. The mouse pad has no rolling function.

Great Laptop, but not with Windows 8

 

This laptop is another glowing example of the wonderful machines that ASUS produces. However, Windows 8 now comes pre-installed and causes tons of performance related issues, and is not user friendly at all. I would recommend this laptop to anyone,...

UPgrade to Windows 7

 

To install a retail copy of Win7, make your Recovery Disks or save a backup image externally, reboot into BIOS setup, disable Secure Boot, enable Legacy BIOS or Compatibilty Service Module (CSM) then boot Win7 installer, delete all partitions during...
