4 out of 5 eggsDecent for the price

This review is from: ASUS X502CA-RB01-WT Notebook Intel Celeron 1007U (1.5GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6" Windows 8 64-bit

Pros: Price. Wouldn't pay $350, I'd wait for $249-279.

Light. Haven't purchased a laptop in 3 years, this thing weighs almost half of my last.

Runs cool. Barely seems to get warm even if I'm streaming and have been using for a couple hours.

Cool to touch.

Cons: I wouldn't say it's slow, but it's not fast. Like I said, decent for the price. It is a celeron after all. Also had 8GB memory on previous, notice a little difference back to 4.

Windows. Upgraded to 8.1 before I started anything which makes it bearable. The metro or tiles version is still pretty much garbage even a year later. Half the apps don't work. The ones that do, like Rhapsody for example, are extremely limited. I would estimate I use the traditional desktop about 95% of the time. It still doesn't run exactly like the previous versions, but after setting up a few shortcuts, it's pretty close. Little practice with the tiles and you can find everything you need that's not on the desktop.

Other Thoughts: Great for on-the-go b/c of weight. Good enough for someone getting first laptop, buying for kids or someone who doesn't need much from their computer. Wouldn't buy if you need to surf with blazing fast speed. Like I said, it's not terrible, but you'll notice a little lag loading pages with lots of images or text.

Manufacturer Response:

4 out of 5 eggsHigh cost performance

This review is from: ASUS X502CA-RB01-WT Notebook Intel Celeron 1007U (1.5GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6" Windows 8 64-bit

Pros: Nice keyboard, the speaker is fine for normal use.

Cons: This product is very hard to upgrade memory, you have to open the whole back panel to upgrade memory to 8GB.

McAfee really makes this computer slower than it should be, we need to uninstall it for better performance.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Lin,

Thank you for liking the keyboard and the speakers. I certainly understand your concern regarding difficulty upgrading the memory and McAffee slowing down the system. Opening the the bottom case voids warranty. To avoid slow system performance, please allow McAffee to run and complete the task before using the system because it does it lots of system resource that will affect system performance temporarily. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140705940on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

4 out of 5 eggsRuns LinuxMint very well

This review is from: ASUS X502CA-RB01-WT Notebook Intel Celeron 1007U (1.5GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6" Windows 8 64-bit

Pros: I installed LinuxMint 16 Mate edition over Windows using a thumb drive. Had to first turn off a bios setting to disable secure boot mode.
The Celeron 1007U processor while only 2 threaded runs way better than my Atom 525 based net top with same 4GB memory. It runs the Mate desktop very well.
I mostly use mine for playing music thru to the stereo all day, for skype & web / email so I'm not a demanding user anymore. For my use, the screen is more than good enough.

The 13W power draw with screen on, is so low, I leave it on 24/7. I haven't noticed if the hard drive is slow because I haven't rebooted in 4mths.

A good deal for the price.

Cons: Track pad buttons are not real buttons and are very hit & miss so I use a wireless mouse.
For the price, you expect plastic construction. If you need to open it up, be very careful as some parts of the case are very fragile like around large connectors such as the VGA port.

Other Thoughts: Before I installed LinuxMint, I first tried to swap the drive for one with Linux already installed but all my other 320GB drives are about 1mm thicker.That extra 1mm prevented the case from properly snapping back together.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I 'm glad that you are satisfied with the laptop except some minor concern regarding the material used to build the casing. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# 3788043 on the subject line.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent laptop for the price

This review is from: ASUS X502CA-RB01-WT Notebook Intel Celeron 1007U (1.5GHz) 4GB Memory 320GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6" Windows 8 64-bit

Pros: Great 15.6" vibrant screen.
Awesome sound quality.
Price
Ease of use.
Reliable brand.
Very thin and light for its size.

Cons: No optical drive
Small battery
Ram is soldered onto the motherboard
Slow hard disk
Touch pad is way too large (I always use wireless mouse anyway)

Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop as a spare system that I will only be using to do some programming on. The har ddisk is a Seagate 320GB 5400 RPM drive (most laptops come with 5400 RPM drives) so this is a real bottleneck.
Pity the RAM is soldered onto the motherboard making it non expandable but o the other side 4GB is more than enough to run Windows 8.1 on a laptop like this.
On the bright side the screen is very nice and vibrant and the sound is awesome.
If you need a laptop that does the basic stuff then I would definitely recommend this. I picked it up for $269 and that's a steal.
I already ordered a 240GB SSD to put in it which will speed it up a lot.
