Asus X501A-XX402H review

 

The X501A is otherwise responsive, and more than up to the job of browsing the web or running productivity apps. It's no gaming rig, though, and managed just 10fps in Stalker at 720p, Low detail.

Asus gets all the basics right with the X501A, providing a sturdy, portable laptop with good battery life. It offers good value if you just need a basic laptop for undemanding tasks.

Asus X501A-XX277H review

 

Asus' X501 laptop range is very much aimed at those on a budget. There are several models in the range but prices start at a mere £299 for this Celeron-based X501A.

Despite its low price, Asus gets all the basics right with the X501A, providing a sturdy, portable laptop with good battery life. It’s no speed demon, but if you just need a basic laptop for undemanding tasks then the X501A provides excellent value for...

Asus X501A review

 

This sharp-looking laptop lacks an optical drive, but is surprisingly powerful for its price

The X501A is great value, especially given its screen size, but the lack of a disc drive, and particularly the paucity of ports, may be an issue for some. However, its Core i3 processor, 15.5in screen and an excellent keyboard make it a very good deal...

Consumer review by: Razzor Ray (newegg.com)

just so so

 

Should looking for Lenovo or Toshiba refurbished deals.

The performance is ok, i3 3120M is powerful among the dual-cores ; the HD4000 graphic card is ok for normal use ,too. You can even play some mainstream game with low effects settings

The build quality is really shameful for ASUS family, I know this is a entry level computer, but the build quality is really below $350 rank laptop ; The screen is terrible,too. The view angle is really narrow, like only 60 degrees. Very normal TN...

Bloated, Slow and a Mess!

 

One of the first, and last, times I will buy refurbished. Maybe it is refurbished for a reason.

Light weight ... that is about the only good thing I can think of

bloated withl software, slowed up machine. Full of viruses and just a mess. Scan software forces as startup and tells you what needs to be reparied and of course the only way you can fix it is to pay them money for the Pro Version ... and if you want...

Screen went white after 6 months

 

Get a laptop with a better track record.

Got it cheap at a big box store, worked well for 6 months (although I hate windows 8)

After 6 months of normal use, booted it up to find a white screen. The computer seemed to be functioning normally and it was just a display issue ; Did some research and found that it's a common problem with this model. Took it apart and reconnected...

Great for a Teacher

 

I'm not much of a tech person; I teach at a university, and I mainly needed a light (but with a number key pad) laptop for making teaching materials. The hardware was like new. There was nothing that made me think it was used prior. The packaging was...

Nice laptop, wrong charger
