4 out of 5 eggs2nd reveiw

Pros: 3630qm CPU, 8GB RAM, Fast Machine.

Cons: Could not upgrade Memory to 1866MHz 8GB package of Corsair Vengeance. I think that it is a limitation of the CPU. Also a BIOS update failed & I had to RMA. After RMA PC came back from Asus w/OS cleaned to factory setting. All installed software was gone including office.

Other Thoughts: Great PC. Don't update BIOS until going on ASUS website & reading All of the updates. They vary from OS to OS.

Aluminum rest is solid, so is the keyboard.

4 out of 5 eggsLost drivers for NIC and Wireless when loaded Windows 7

Pros: Good price for this hardware
Worked out of the box
Delivered quickly

Cons: I couldn't deal with Windows 8
I loaded Windows 7 but now it can't find drivers for the NIC, the wireless and a few other things so it is pretty crippled at this point. If anyone knows where to find drivers for the NIC and wireless, please let me know.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good

Pros: Decent screen. Good amount of RAM. 1600 MHz average RAM speed. Upgraded to Windows 8.1 with no hitches. Computer runs well. Even got GTA 4 to run on it with some hacks. Love the turbo feature. Clocked @ 3.2 GHz average with the machine This is what Asus calls Power4Gear. Has Battery mode that runs CPU at 1.2 GHz or Performance mode that runs CPU at 32. GHz most of the time. The laptop automatically switches the modes to save the battery. Also dims screen to save battery.

Cons: Could not use Corsair 1866 MHz memory. PC blue screened. I'll have to contact Asus about it. Reinstalled the 1600 MHz Memory provided with Laptop. Have to find out about compatible RAM.

Other Thoughts: Windows 8 swipe in features can be annoying.

1 out of 5 eggsDead screen on arrival.

Pros: Sturdy, very fast processor, and plenty of ram. Got a very good deal at $550, but maybe it wasn't worth saving the money.

Cons: Yes, I bought it refurbished, but I feel that's no excuse. It took 8 days to get to me and when I turned it on, the screen was completely blank. No back-light, nothing. Makes me wonder if ASUS even has inspection for their refurbished items before sending them out. I will "potentially" have this laptop working 3 weeks after I purchased it and after numerous hassles. College can be tough with no computer of your own.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

It's great knowing the laptop is sturdy with a fast processor and an ample amount of RAM. I apologize if the system failed to power on or bootup. All refurbished or recertified products undergo intensive quality control testing and inspections, this is an isolated case. To power on the system successfully, please ensure the AC adapter was properly connected from the laptop to a working surge protector or AC outlet. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3544205 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel

4 out of 5 eggsEverything is great but..

Pros: Does everything and more than I expected it to do, great PC in general, screen is nice, keyboard feels great, has that great feel that ASUS has with most of their products. The touchpad is awesome similar to an apple touchpad. Loving the i7's mobile power. Battery lasts a good while even when playing games.

Cons: RAM needs to be faster, Hard Drive could be bigger, and I didn't plan on doing the windows 8.1 update had auto updates off but then randomly it seemed like I was forced to do it. Mouse drivers no longer work, and none of my apps work except for the store. Not that big of a deal though and that isn't ASUS's fault its Microsoft's so in short whatever you do don't upgrade to windows 8.1. Now considering installing windows 7. After I get a new hard drive, some faster ram need to check out what my board supports so yeah I am agrivated at Microsoft.
