Great deal for i5 procesor


I purchased this laptop for the wife as a machine to surf the internet, use word and do some Photoshop graphic design and light gaming. My main concern was the graphic card, but so far it handled everything we've thrown at it pretty well. You can...

Had the laptop for 2 weeks so far and had no hardware or software issues with it although refurbished mine looked and acted like a brand new laptop (no scratches, no battery issues, perfect condition) ; Incredible battery life and very lightweight,...

No dedicated graphic card. Although it plays older games, don't expect to play the latest stuff on this machine ; Speakers might as well not be there. You will need external speakers or use headphones (works very well with headphones) ; Screen is a bit...

Best choice i have ever made in my life


I would suggest buying this if you're looking for a graduation gift for a college student or for businessman.

First time I ever bought a refurbished laptop or from Asus, and I am quite satisfied. Came in mail quickly and looked brand new. Looks just like the Macbook pro, has the sturdy feel and sleek design to the keyboard. Except this laptop is ridiculously...

Speakers are located on one side, a terrible idea. Also, if you go past a certain decibles the speakers will begin to crackle ; If you have the mindset of buying a gamer's laptop top, you might want to look elsewhere. No dedicated video card. The...

Great Budget Buy


Newegg once again gave us a great deal with great service. Shipped free the next day and was delivered exactly when scheduled. The computer looks "out of the box" new and everything is functioning as advertised. We needed a laptop for general use and...

Great specs for a sub $500 laptop. Sandy Bridge i5 with 8 gb! 750 gb HDD was partitioned in half standard. No blemishes. Looks and runs like new. Love the aluminum finish. Thin and light compared to many laptops with similar screen dimensions. The...

No documentation. Desktop start-up document was not present. Not a big deal for us, but a less knowledgeable user could be in need of this. The touchpad is wide and very sensitive. Unintentional selections and clicks while typing are common

Great litttle laptop


The speakers were not putting out much sound on arrival - fixed very easily with updated drivers from ASUS website. Now they are great.

Light, fast, battery life is great, not much bloatware loaded on arrival. Love the keyboard - easy to type on and easy to clean. Clear crystal display. Love the size and the feel. DOES NOT GET HOT - which is something I was looking for after my last...

Some blemishes on the body - nothing too bad. No recovery image or disk on arrival - just a note to look for pdf with instructions. But no such pdf came with it. So had to create on my own - no biggie but why point to pdf and not include it

So far so good


Beautiful looking! I love the design of this laptop. I read in another review where someone said "it just feels right"...well I echo that sentiment exactly. Just something about it that feels right ; The aluminum case is so much nicer that the black...

The aluminum on the back side of the monitor is scuffed a bit. Also the corner onf the monitor is bent in slightly. You cant see it unless you are inspecting the laptop...and since it is a refurb that is just what I have been doing ; Neither are too...

Can you hear me now?


Don't expect Asus to help you out with the speaker problem or any other problem. They clearly don't care about helping customers who buy their recertified junk. When a company recertifies something, they don't seem to understand the "certify" part.

Nice power behind this little guy and compact enough to carry around. I love the keyboard on this notebook. The extra wide buttons with nice spacing is nice for someone with big fingers like myself. The circular brushed aluminum looks nice as well

Speakers were DOA. Trying to play anything with any bass in it at all results in a horribly loud buzzing sound. From the looks of other owners, it seems like Asus knows of this problem and is selling them anyways
