If you're terribly patient you can still use it.

Slow/jerky, RUBBISH keyboard.

Asus V550CA-CJ105H

 

Metallic design and finish is nice.

Wide spacing between keys makes it a little difficult to get used too.. compared to conventional keyboards. Lack of start menu in Windows 8 is atrocious! What were they thinking?! To be fair this is nothing to do with the laptop..

Asus V550CA-CJ105H

 

I bought this laptop for my sons 14th birthday after much research and I have to say it looks and feels great; it also has a very nice display and keyboard and setup was a breeze. Applied the free MS upgrade to Windows 8.1 through the Windows Store...

None relating to the supplier or the laptop manufacturer. Needs free Classicshell for that familiar Windows 7 Start menu.

Good spec, quick and almost silent. Good quality build also!

None really but maybe if being picky a fourth USB slot would handy.

Nice design. Very quiet. Doesn't get hot, even after several hours use. Touch screen.

Windows 8. Doesn't Perform as well as I'd hoped considering the specs. Required some updates & changes to settings to boost performance. Can be sluggish at times.

Very stylish nice feel and pretty good touch screen

As with most touch screens the screen part of the laptop makes it top heavy

Very good computer that is easy to use and feels like a sturdy build. It is quick and I haven't had an problems with processing speeds as of yet.

At first I thought the keyboard was a little shallow but actually I have got used to it and now can't use thicker ones properly.

- Extremely well built - Decent touchscreen - Acres of memory - Good looking screen - Very quiet and stays cool

- Slightly on the heavy side - Lid very susceptible to fingerprint marks - Battery life could be better
