4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: i5, large hard drive in this price range, good basic lappy, very quiet and runs cool. Finish is not a fingerprint magnet. Much lighter than my huge Qosmio. The touchpad is very smooth.

Cons: The keyboard feels cheap and the spacebar reallyreally(see) sucks. Really have to poundthe keys. Iwould actually give this 3.5 to 3.75 stars instead of 4.

Other Thoughts: Why ASUS would skimp and cheapout on the keyboard on this otherwise very nice lappy is beyond me.

5 out of 5 eggsASUS X53E Review (Actually K53E)

Pros: I've read a few of the available reviews of the laptop so far (two on Newegg at the time of this writing). I am not experiencing any of the issues the other two are. The wireless card is working flawlessly, no loss of connection after several hours of work. I never really use laptops, mainly use desktops for gaming/programming. I'm fixing to start college, however, and the engineering school there requires a laptop. Couldn't afford a MSi, so I bought from my second pick brand; ASUS. The computer is working like a dream and I couldn't be happier with my pick.

Cons: The only cons I have is that it is pre-loaded with a lot of bloatware, which is expected. I haven't bought a manufactured computer in awhile, so I still see this as a problem while others usually overlook it. Second, for some reason, on the ASUS support website, I couldn't find X53E. Auto-detect said that this is a K53E laptop. I haven't done any research on this, so there may be a interchangeable version thing going on, but I have no clue.

Other Thoughts: Good buy for my first laptop since I was 11.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat, does what it should.

Pros: I love Asus and this one hasn't disappointed. I've seen a couple of the other reviews and can only say I haven't experienced any problems. Yet.

For a basic machine, handling basic tasks this thing is overkill. For work, I won't be replacing this one for a while.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought it when it was `$480. At the current price I may have shopped around a bit but still a great deal. As long as you recognize you're getting a great work comp (not a graphics machine) you'll be happy.

2 out of 5 eggsBad wireless card and possible hard drive.

Pros: This laptop is fast when the connection is not lost, massive hard drive and decent sound if you like to listen to tunes on Pandora or any other site. It has a great look and feel to it, yet what good is that when it's defective, right? Great price, but I got it for 489.99. I see now that the price has increased somewhat.

Cons: I experienced from day one multiple loss of internet connection daily, and a strange squealing/screeching sound when closing the lid of this laptop. Interesting enough, I saw a review on another site for this exact same model where a woman had the same exact problem with that annoying sound. After having more and more issues with the internet connection, I called my ISP. After troubleshooting for hours on end one day, and I explained that when I lose connection, I can't see the other networks around me as well. ( I live in an apartment complex) This means folks that there is an issue with the wireless card. So that, coupled with the annoying sound upon closing the lid, which is either a hard drive problem or the fan, means it's time to send it back.

Other Thoughts: I would highly suggest that everyone stay away from this model. I thought it was strange that there were no reviews about this particular model on newegg when I ordered it. But because it's an Asus, I took a chance. A lot of my friends own an Asus, and I've heard nothing but great things about the brand. I'll certainly look into ordering another Asus, but I will stay away from this model. I have to commend newegg. Their customer service regarding returns is phenomenol.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that you had problems with the wifi dropping and the strange sound when closing the lid. We usually have driver updates that will solve the wifi issue.

Regarding about the strange sound, Not sure what it can be. It may be a bad hinge, fan, or hard drive like you mentioned.

I hope you purchased another model that does not cause you this many problems and are enjoying your purchase.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me at cl-jeffrey@asus.com which I reside in the U.S
