4 out of 5 eggsGood value for the price

Pros: The Laptop came within a simple box containing the charger cable and a little note from Newegg how to start it up. No problems since this day, everything works fine and nice.
The laptop has enough power to do the easy daily things like word, web-browsing, programming ect.
everything I expect from a laptop within this price range gets done.

Cons: The display reflects light and makes it hard to see what you are doing (depending on light conditions)

Other Thoughts: For the people who expect this laptop to be top notch; look at the price. You want a cheap laptop for easy tasks? Go for this one.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Laptop

Pros: Good looking, Fast.

Cons: No DVD drive but not a big deal since everything is online now.

Other Thoughts: To all the people complaining that there is no serial number for Windows, This is normal. Any laptop with Windows 8 as well as desktops DO NOT come with license keys anymore. It is embedded in the BIOS. If you need to install windows on a new hard drive, Turn off secure boot in the UEFI BIOS and boot from a Windows 8 Disk. It will not ask you for a key as it will find it in the BIOS. Make sure it is a Windows Core DVD not a Pro. Also The 4GB installed on this unit is more than enough to run windows 8 efficiently. Heck 2GB will run it nicely. Why you would want to run Linux on a machine designed for Windows 8 is beyond me..

2 out of 5 eggsOK When it works

Pros: Inexpensive
Good for general use

Cons: cheap HD. Last only 4 months. Read another review where they only got 5 so I am not alone in this.
HD was a challenge to replace.
Could not find windows 8 key on system for re-installing windows so I had to get another key also.

Other Thoughts: Nice when it works. Was a gift for 70y old mother. Liked it while it worked. I spent several hours replacing the HD yesterday and then re-installing windows 8 and such. Bought on 8/2 so only used lightly for a few months. She only does web browsing and email.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm glad that you have found the laptop inexpensive and good for general use. I'm sorry if the hardrive failed after 4 months of usage. ASUS does provide 90-days warranty for recertified or refurbished product. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3184185 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat computer with a TERRIBLE touchpad!

Pros: Good price, runs well, boots up very quickly, looks nice, Asus customer service has always been great for me, although its always a very long and arduous process.

Cons: Spacebar only worked half the time, sent it back to Asus and had it replaced, now it works perfect. I think the biggest con for this computer is the touchpad. The cursor bounces around when you're not moving your finger at all. It makes it VERY difficult to click small links or buttons. It is also unresponsive randomly at times. I've had Asus look at it twice, and they can't seem to fix it. I've pretty much come to terms it will never be fixed, which I guess isn't a big deal because it only does it every now and then. I WOULD NOT recommend it for ANY kind of gaming though.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm glad that you were satisfied with your laptop purchased. Also, I would like to thank you for mentioning about your great customer service experience. I'm sorry that you are having difficulty using the touchpad. Since it supports multi-touch and multi-gesture, please allow some time to get use to it. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3034444 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

1 out of 5 eggsWORST PEICE OF THING EVER

Pros: Nothing

Cons: I bought this for school and it only lasted a month got the blue screen of death tried the hard drive on my friend laptop and it just died. I did nothing but do my homework on it my essays and projects I would have never bought this garbage if I knew this was going to happen to me I even asked. Died in just one month use exactly one month this is a worthless laptop lawl.

Other Thoughts: WORTHLESSS

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm sorry that you have a hardrive related issue after a month, which is an isolated case. ASUS does offer warranty to replace the hardrive if found defective. If this was not setup yet, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3022236 so the unit can be sent for further diagnostics and analysis.

1 out of 5 eggsFAULTY KEYBOARD

Pros: Everything was good, screen was nice, also a good price

Cons: FAULTY KEYBOARD!!! The "K" key does not function. I was so bummed to find out i was shipped a faulty laptop. How do they not check that the laptop is fully functional when they ship it off to the buyer. Now i have to waste my time going to drop it off at the ups store. Also have to wait for it to get to them, for them to fix it or decide to send me another one. WHAT A WASTE OF TIME! This could have all been avoided if asus actually tested the product thoroughly. Will be the last asus product i own.Even though the product is refurbished it should be functional in all aspects.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm glad that you are satisfied with the unit overall, having a nice screen and a good price. I'm sorry that the keyboard was faulty when received. All recertified and refurbished units undergo an intensive quality control testing and inspection, this is an isolated case. If I can be of further help on your next ASUS product purchase, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3022515 in the subject line.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: No problems so far, looks new and works well for what it is.

Cons: No DVD-I assumed all laptops came with DVD players (My bad for not even checking for it). It only became a problem when there was no internet connectivity and my daughter could not listen to any Cd's or watch movies. Next time I will check for it before I buy!!!

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I'm glad that you were satisfied with the laptop. If you purchased a laptop without DVD, you can still connect an external DVD drive if needed. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3005408 in the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.
