Great CPU/Bad Hard Drive

 

I see now that I'm not the only one with this issue. No way I could of foreseen this and I knew what I was getting into with a Refurb. Hopefully ASUS will make this relatively painless.

Terrific hardware package at great price

Hard dive dies after 4 weeks of use and I'm now out of the RMA window

Impulse buy...

 

I've wanted to replace my desktop i3 machine for a while. Immediately ditched Winblows for xUbuntu 13 encrypted root. Everything works. Was a refurb on sale. Definitely worth it. It's not a powerhouse, but it's not meant to be. Thanks to not wasting...

Says waht it does and does waht it says. Got it on sale for less than I paid for a much less powerful netbook only a few weeks ago. 500GB drive. HDMI. It's significantly faster than my higher clocked desktop i3, haven't looked into why that is yet....

Max RAM is 8GB. Low Rez monitor

Wins 8 is a joke

 

good price

Does not boot up second time. It makes very high pitch noise and can't turn it off until disconnect the battery. In process of returning for a replacement

Awesome laptop for the price

 

I prep all Windows 8 computers with the Classic Shell start menu and show the customer how to use the standard desktop. After seeing that Windows 8 is not the OS from hell the customer buys the unit with no problem. Out of the last 15 sales I only lost...

These are high quality refurbs. I purchased three for resale and sold all three in a week. All are in excellent/like new condition. Good job ASUS and NEWEGG

Windows 8...people do not want it - unless you show them how to use it

ASUS Laptop - Pros So Supersede Cons

 

I think perhaps I can write a helpful review for this ASUS laptop. In spite of all the cons, I still have to rate this product 5 stars because it is such a huge value for the money. I do not necessarily mean this to be a complete review, but rather to...

Tremendous value for money ; Packaged, looks absolutely brand new ; Sharp, attractive appearance ; Big, user friendly keypad ; Many, many bells and whistles (features)

Lack of written documentation ; Recovery partition erased ; Relatively slow hard drive (5400 rpm) ; No touch screen ; Don't let these cons hold you back... read on

Excellent Value

 

I bought this laptop to replace a heavily used and dated HP. The value and functionality is impressive, and so far, no problems. I can't imagine a better computer for the price.

Excellent laptop

 

This is an excellent laptop for the money. Obviously, it isn't an Intel I7, but for my purposes, it functions just as well (I don't do anything that requires I7 speed) and at a significantly lesser cost.

DVD did not work

 

The DVD did not work. Asus and Tiger did replace the laptop quickly. This is the 3rd Asus notebook I have purchased over the years and have been happy in the past.
