5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Comfortable keyboard layout with a solid processor and quality display. Very functional for every day office use. Running Windows 7 with a 6 hour battery life span.

Cons: The screen has a reflective mirror quality to it which causes some glare when in direct sunlight. Also the AC adapter plugin location is about midway down on the side which is a bit awkward.

5 out of 5 eggsVMware engineers best friend

Pros: >supports upto 16GB ram(google the processor intels site says upto 16, asus only tested 8 which is why the specs sheet say 8)
>SATA 3
>7.5~8HRS battery with 50% screen and SSD,
>Very crisp screen
>Numpad is handy
>EUFI support
>Decent onboard, I do enjoy my UT2k4 or TF2 from time to time
>Full support with Centos 6.3
>Bright Screen

Cons: >Not a quad, but I knew that coming in. It's a dual core with HT
>DIMM slots are hard to add ram, it was only detecting 8 for a good while, finally found out the second dimm wasn't fully in. YOu just have to push it all the way
>5400 RPM drive is SLOW, but I knew that prior and replaced it with an SSD

Other Thoughts: Can't say anything in regards to the pre installed OS I formatted it and installed Windows 7 Pro.

I know people gripe about no recovery CD but the windows ISO's are freely and legally available online at mydigitallife

This is a great laptop for someone who goes out a lot, SSD's really extend the battery life.

Runs dead silent with an SSD in it, I forget it is on sometimes!

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Great speeds, awesome keyboard, love the look at the computer and it runs amazingly cool! Will upgrade to 8 gigs of RAM, but for the price, the specs are great!!

Cons: Odd placement for the power adapter, but if that's the biggest con, this machine has a lot going for it.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Value!

Pros: Core i5 is VERY fast, better than AMD's Quad cores.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Got this for $400, but it's probably worth close to $600 even as a refurb.

4 out of 5 eggsForgot to mention

Pros: Forgot to mention, the track-pad is incredible. It is as smooth as on a mac, it even has 2 finger scroll and what-not. This track-pad is truly amazing.

Cons: -

4 out of 5 eggsGood but a little improvment

Pros: It is a great laptop at a great price.

Cons: You need to make sure you have the WiFi drivers on a usb stick to install, because it doesn't have it.

3 out of 5 eggsGood hardware, poorly executed

Pros: The hardware was very good for the price, attractive design, cheapest i5 laptop on the market

Cons: Lots of bloatware pre-installed, but no network drivers -- installing drivers via e-Driver utility results in BSOD. If they have time to install all of those useless bloatware apps, why can't they manage to pre-install wireless drivers? I dropped two stars for this reason.

4 out of 5 eggsBang for the buck

Pros: Great bang for the buck. You always take a gamble on refurbished products, but I trusted Asus and went ahead to buy this. I am extremely pleased. A i5 for this low of price is a great opportunity. The component that scored lowest was the RAM (4.7WEI) so I got some Gskill 1333 8GBs in there instead. I probably will soon put in an SSD, but this thing boots fast already. I have a desktop gaming computer, I dont recommend this for gaming, but for my work--it suits more than my needs.
It's lightweight, feels great to type on, nice touchpad and sleek design.

Cons: Some bloatware I needed to get rid of. Again, for the price, it's great. I got extended warranty just in case because it's refurbished.

Other Thoughts: Shipped in 3 days free shipping. Asus makes great products.
