ASUS V500CA-DB71T

 

I've been annoyed with the customer service experience so far with my repair.

The Asus has attractive styling and the appearance of being solidly constructed, but after several month of use I don't feel confident mine was assembled very well

Wifi card already replaced -- at my expense. I'm using a years-old borrowed Mac while waiting for the Asus to return from the repair show. It's sad how much smoother the Mac keyboard is and how much better constructed the Mac is overall

This lightweight computer makes it easy for any college student to use. The touchscreen works perfectly. Setup was a breeze with Windows 8 and ASUS software. The computer boots up faster than other laptops I have had in the past. It runs quieter than...

The keyboard had a fault. When using the space bar, an excessive amount of force was needed to be applied for the computer to recognize it. When writing a paper for college, you don't want to have to slam on the space bar all the time when writing a 5...
