no refurbs again

 

Bought this, and let it sit for a year. I was so stuck on my old toshiba I could not change. I noticed right away one speaker does not work. Then I noticed moving the screen would chime like removing a device. I suspect the webcam or mic wires have a...

value for the price

Only one speaker works ; Webcam disconnects and reconnects when you move screen ; Keyboard backlight already quit

Decent build quality hampered by W8

 

Cant really recommend, but I guess I got what I paid for.

Nice looking laptop

Windows 8. Windows 8. Windows 8. Do not pass go, just install W7 ; Shiny finish leaves very visible fingerprints. Strange key layout. Overly sensitive touch pad when you dont want it to be, insensate when you want it to be. Intel HD 4000 has trouble...

ehhh...........

 

I bought this laptop, turned on only a few times in the 7 months I have owned it. I just noticed one speaker does not work. Too late for me to return it. Probably won't buy a refurb laptop from Newegg again. I don't think I even turned on but a couple...

good price

one channel of audio does not work

Looks like new

 

For the price cant get a better laptop right now. Was kind of skeptical due to being refurbished but I wouldn't even have known except for the fact that they told me.

200$ off ; Mint condition ; see spec list

Had issue updating windows 8.1 but that is not really asus's fault ; sold out ; Cant fit vga and hdmi plug in together without cutting the vga plug ; speakers are on the bottom

ASUS Q500A-BHI5N01

 

I ordered this on black Friday for it had a good deal on it and I needed a laptop for college this coming year

When I got it I first charged the battery then turned it on. It didn't boot so then I removed the battery and waited 10 seconds, then put it back in and tried again. It booted so I ran through the setup for windows 8 and rebooted. Then it started and I...

Meh

 

If I could buy this computer again I would. But with no accidental coverage I would not.

Very nice overall laptop. Nice image, loved the back lit keyboard, and it was fairly fast for the price

very very easy to brake screen

I LOVE IT!!

 

I bought this laptop brand new and I have to say I am thoroughly impressed with the smooth operation of the machine. Windows 8 is very easy to use once you get used to it and I love the fact that you can change the background color. This is a very fun...

the backlit keyboard, with the descent size hard drive you never need to worry about running out of space, adequate memory allows the laptop to operate smoothly and efficiently

no cons

Screen broke in 60 days

 

Purple vertical line appeared on the screen 60 days after purchase. Could not get the unit replaced as 30 days had passed. Sent in for repair under the 90 days warranty. It's been two weeks since I send the laptop for repair and it's still in repair?

Price looked good

Screen broke in 60 days

They dont tell you there is no recovery media

 

I like this laptop it is fast and has everything you need. When I opened up the shipping box I discovered there was no recovery partition and no way to recover your Windows 8. Your activation code is now stored in the bios but you have to get a windows...
