5 out of 5 eggsAsus D550MA-DS01

Pros: I am a Ford Technician and needed a new laptop for internet diagnosing through are Ford Database. After using this laptop for a week I was impressed by the speed! Loads the Ford PTS website real quick compared to my Dell with XP OS. This is a great computer for Internet and Microsoft Stuff.

Cons: The Web cam is only a .9 MP but I don't use that...Still getting use to Win 8 but liking it more every day.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this computer for any one with the needs in the Pros.

5 out of 5 eggsThe Review

Pros: **Please read Other Thoughts if planning on purchasing**
Price was the main factor when I purchased this. I needed something for college and this fits all the requirements I needed including budget. A decent notebook used just for Web Browsing, Microsoft Office (pre-installed).

Cons: **Please read Other Thoughts if planning on purchasing**
Windows 8...I finally learned it after 2+weeks.

Other Thoughts: **PLEASE READ ON IF YOU PLAN ON PURCHASING** this notebook it's going to need a serious update to windows 8.1. I have tried numerous times trying to do the windows update in order to obtain the windows 8.1 update through the play store and it has failed multiple times. I have figured out what needs to be accomplished so you don't become frustrated like me.
**Instructions**
1-Boot the computer and fill in all adequate information (ie)name of computer, internet, time zones, etc...
2-On the main tile screen click on the desktop tile, to get to your desktop
3-Press the following keys (CTRL+ALT+DELETE)
4-On the bottom right there is going to be a button that resembles power/shut down button (click it)
5-It should say Install updates before shut down (or something of that nature, I don't have the option anymore as I already updated it and the option are no longer there once the update is complete. This will preform a major update.
6-Restart or it should self restart.
7-Start the computer again and click on the tile marked desktop.
8-Once on your desktop right click on the tool bar and go to properties
9-Cick on toolbars tab and check the desktop box and hit ok or apply. If you would like to start the computer all the time to desktop follow step 8 again then click Navigation tab and check "When I sign in or close all apps on a screen, go to desktop instead of start
10-You now have a desktop option on your toolbar so that it can help you navigate around like windows 7 & starts up on the desktop instead of tile screen if you followed the steps
11-Don't forget to go to the play store tile and update to windows 8.1 as it will now become available to you once you have updated the CTRL+ALT+DELETE method. Also do not forget to now accomplish the regular windows update which can be obtained in the new desktop tab feature on the tool bar [icon (>>)]-->control panel-->all control panel items-->windows update at the bottom
**YOU MUST DO THE CTRL+ALT+DELETE method first before you start updating anything otherwise it will becoming failed and a bunch of time being wasted**

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent so far

Pros: Good price.
Windows 8 was only horrible for the first 10 minutes.
Boots fast.
Numpad.

Cons: Only one RAM slot. The device comes with one 4G RAM stick, and it says it supports up to 8G. So I thought I would buy an extra stick of RAM. After I cracked this thing open, turns out there's only one slot. Had to return the 4G stick to get an 8G instead.

Other Thoughts: I haven't had this device too long, so I'll come back later. If needed.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Initial Impression

Pros: The physical feel of this machine was better than I expected of a $319 laptop. It is sturdy without being heavy and light enough to not be cumbersome.

Price for Performance Ratio is quite good, I for what you are paying you will be hard pressed to find something better built, with better performance, and made by a better and more reputable manufacturer.

This machine was purchased as a home computer replacement and seems to be up to the task. It handles multi-tasking well and was surprisingly easy to set up. I am still working on getting a bit better grading criteria for its abilities, but as for now if you are not gaming you should do quite well with this machine.

Cons: The mouse pad is a bit different, and I'm certain some will love it, but I am not crazy about the feel. As far as new "swipe" set up....well I just haven't got into it yet as I tend not to use a mouse pad unless I am setting a machine up and testing its functions....I'm just a mouse kind of guy.

I was a slight bit saddened by the lap top only having 2 USB ports (1 x 3.0 and 1 x 2.0). This is a bit light considering the amount of peripherals we all tend to use these days. I.E.: Headset, mouse, printer, charging other electronics, uplinks to other electronics, etc.

I fixed this by purchasing a $7 USB hub and called it good. I couldn't justify spending the extra $50-70 to get two more USB ports on the machine itself.

Other Thoughts: Now to the OS....Windows 8.....the (not so great IMO) compromise. I had to install 89 updates to this machine the second I started it up. THIS WAS NO FAULT OF ASUS. Windows 8.1 and an multiple other updates due to it were rather cumbersome and lengthy.

I'm not a fan of the app based look as it seems overly complicated to navigate between certain aspects of normal use that are easy to transition between in windows 7. This very well may be fixed in time as I familiarize myself with the new OS and some of the features that 8.1 brings to the table....time will tell.
