5 out of 5 eggsWell Priced

Pros: I bought this for my daughter and wife for Christmas, and they both love it. Haven't had any issues whatsoever. As someone said earlier, it's not really for gaming (although Daughter has Angry Birds and it does fine) Just a really good deal all around

Cons: well it'd probably up the cost by a hundred bucks or so to have Microsoft Office installed, but some kind of word processor would've been nice. Currently using AbiWord

4 out of 5 eggsnice laptop!

Pros: Nice laptop good for everyday things and even some games run OK Painkiller,DeadLight and Walking Dead.
confirmed it will go to 10mb, installed a 8mb Card and its recognized in bios and windows.

Cons: 4 days after I got it it, crashed and had to send into Asus they replaced the motherboard, but they sent it back express one day so they are ok in my book

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Laptop (Host)

Pros: Out of the box this is a good laptop for surfing the web, performing productivity tasks, or watching movies. It won't give you great gaming performance, but if you are like me you have a desktop dedicated to that task.

Cons: 2mb of Ram is soldered to the MB, so there is only one open slot.

Other Thoughts: I actually purchased this to upgrade and found that I could change the following:

1. Swapped CPU for a Core i5-2450M. This is a technical upgrade that requires nearly full disassembly of the base to get at the motherboard. It will void your warranty but it does work. The BIOS has the microcode for the new CPU and works perfectly.

2. Swapped network card for a dual-band 803.11n/Bluetooth combo card (Intel N-6230 and Intel N-6235 with Bluetooth 4.0 both have worked). Asus does not whitelist the Wifi. As an added benefit, the function toggle automatically recognized the Bluetooth portion and allows you to toggle that as well.

3. Swapped the DVD for a Sony Optiarc Blu-Ray Burner. The screw mount keeping the drive in place is under the keyboard, but it is very easy to remove.

4. Swapped the stock keyboard for the chicklet keyboard from the K53 series. This fits perfectly, exhibits none of the flex or imprecision of the original.

5. As noted, this comes with 2gb of memory soldered to the board and one open slot. Asus claims a maximum of 6gb of memory, but I've added an 8gb stick and it recognizes and utilizes the additional Ram. Sisoft Sandra indicates that the motherboard can actually handle up to 32mb of memory, so when 16gb stick become available I am going to give one a try as well. Right now, the 10gb works great!

6. Swapped the standard 4-cell battery (was getting about 2.5 hours on a full charge) with a 6-cell version from a Asus K53...now I'm seeing more than 4 hours of run time.

7. Swapped the HDD for an SSD. This is a SATA 3 motherboard so be sure to get a SATA 3 SSD to recognize the full speed benefit. The stock hard drive is partitioned to 119gb for the C:\ Drive and the remainder as a D:\Data drive. I purchased a 128GB and the cloning process went smoothly. For the easiest cloning process, I wouldn't recommend anything smaller than the 128gb. If you don't want the Blu-ray, you can also buy a optical drive bay 12.7mm adapter and put your old hard drive in there for additional storage. I would prefer the optical drive and an external USB data drive.

8. I went ahead and upgraded to Windows 8...boot times are incredible. I added Stardock's Start8 to make the desktop act like Windows 7 and I couldn't be happier with the performance.

In stock form this is a 4 (one star taken off for the lame soldering of the Ram). As a host for upgrades this is a 5 easily!
