3 out of 5 eggsVery very basic netbook

Pros: Cheap, Very good display, Light weight. Numbers pad, 15.6" display.

Cons: Cheaply built. No dvd, No windows I.D. Tag. Battery can be removed. Keyboard is very loud to type on. Touch pad not very good at getting where you wish to go and such. CPU is slower then I thought it should be

Other Thoughts: Ok. I know they call this a net or note book. With such a large screen for that title I thought it would be better then a note book. This is a just a simple lappy to do email, utubes, facebook and the like.
What I got it for it will work just fine. The lack of a dvd will make it hard for any to load anything or do a backup unless you have a online cloud.
When the HD crashes. Not having a windows I.D will make it hard to install it. Unless I missed something in the recovery partition of the drive.
Had to do over I would have spent a little more and gotten something a little nicer.
This is a throw away net book to me. Unless you know how to work on them. loading programs on a CD, Battery not being easy to replace. Would cost a basic computer user more to get it fixed then it is worth. My Thoughts on it.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price, does work

Pros: *This thing is cheap
*Great alternative to a chromebook, if you want to do actual work
*good amount of storage
*about 4 hour battery life with moderate use, typing papers, browsing
* netflix, youtube, pandora
* nice chick-let keyboard
*lightweight
*good size, its not an ultrabook, but its not a brick
*all plastic, seems durable, has a nice texture to grip and you dont notice any scratches or scruffs
*runs all the software well to do all my school work. like visual studio, eclipse, firefox, servers for testing.

Cons: * not the most stylish
* possessor cant handle to much multitasking
* BIG thing is running multiple applications, it can handle like 3 moderate ones at a time, but after that i notice some performance issues.
* cant handle a bunch of browser tabs
*no access panels, gotta unscrew the whole thing to even get at the battery

Other Thoughts: My other workhorse of a laptop had suffered damage to the screen and the hinge. Now it is designated as a desktop. So being a student i needed something to carry to class, and being on a budget i was on the market for something in the 200-300 range. I originally intended on getting a chrome book and running a linux distro on it for development. After looking around and really thinking about it i realized for development a chromebook might not be the best choice. I wanted more space, more memory, a larger keyboard, and So i chose to go with windows. I narrowed it down to this asus, a dell, and a acer all in the same price range, same cpu, same specs. I decided to go with the asus because of their lower failure rate, customer service, and the warranty, also friends also recommended the brand. So far, i am very satisfied with my choice.

No crashes, smooth, snappy, responsive. The intel n2830 celeron dual core, is a good chip for the price. I did have to get used to it though. Im a guy who likes and is used to, everything opened, and a hundred tabs, but im also used to my i7 cpu lol. That will not happen with this machine. IT WILL BOG DOWN. With a modest number of application open it will still perform. All my IDEs, the xampp servers, and other tools run great on it. There is no optical drive, but that is not a concern to me. I cant remember the last time i used one. Google docs that i use often can sometimes not be so responsive, especially when there are more than 5 tabs open, you just have to remember to keep your tabs down.

For what it is ( a machine for less than $300) it is a great machine, that real work can be done on. I have had a good experience with it, and it has helped me through college when i was on a bugdet. If you just want to browse the web, facebook, type notes, watch youtube, i would recomend a chromebook, but If you requirements are simular to mine, i really recomend this machine.

2 out of 5 eggsNot ASUS's Fault

Pros: It was cheap.

Cons: It was not very well made. It came with a cracked screen. I was lucky I opened it to check it before putting it under the tree. No DVD-ROM.

Other Thoughts: It is good for an internet computer. the warranty is nice but I didnt want to do a warranty on a device I received broken so I returned it to Newegg.

1 out of 5 eggsTOTAL & COMPLETE GARBAGE!!!

Pros: I guess price, but you will throw your money away on this one.

Cons: This unit is complete and utter trash!. Asus, you really fouled up this time. You cannot change your battery, hdd, ram, or keyboard without completely dis-assembling the unit. The system is slow. Like previous reviewer, full screen HD video is a chore for this guy. Last 3 models similar to this one I have worked on are all garbage and motherboards failed right after warranty.

Other Thoughts: I am a computer tech and a customer bought in one of these units last week. It was dead. No power, nothing. After completely dis-assembling this stupid thing 5 times, I finally got it to power, but no post. Appears to be a bad mobo, which is Asus' track record lately for allot of notebooks that come in here not posting. My shop has had to send back several Asus laptops that were either with in the first year or just over a year dead. The Asus engineer who thought this was a good idea and the people who agreed should all be looking for another job. Do yourself a favor and buy something else.

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsgreat price

Pros: price. this is the perfect laptop to upgrade. popped a 512gb ssd in this thing right off the bat, now she flies. ssd= $200, laptop=$239. $439 for a fast 15.6" laptop with a keypad and 8.1 64 bit......hells to the yeah!

Cons: this thing is painfully slow with the stock hard drive

Other Thoughts: not as easy to upgrade as your standard laptop. there is no access doors to the hard drive, memory or even the battery. to get to any of these things you have to remove the whole bottom, which kinda sucks, but not impossible

4 out of 5 eggsGreat computer, but...

Pros: I have never had the computer crash on me in the 3.5 months that I have owned it and I like to push it to the max. I love the hdmi output and 2 usb ports. The battery gives me a good 4 hours of basic music streaming and school.

Cons: The case feels a little flimsy behind the screen and there is no optical drive.

Other Thoughts: The pros definitely outweigh the cons because the case might feel flimsy but its been through some vigorous use and no scratches or cracks anywhere. As for the optical drive I can buy a $30 one from newegg flash.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

It's good to know that you find the unit as a great computer. I do understand your concern regarding the build quality of the laptop and not having an optical drive. The materials use to build the product are within industry standard. If an optical drive is a necessity, you can always connect an external USB drive. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N141231961 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

1 out of 5 eggsis this a joke?

Pros: it seems to be a nice computer, but i have owned it for less than four hours

Cons: you have to take the entire case apart to swap the battery - NO JOKE!

and be sure to watch out for those cables that might snap along the way. same goes for memory and drive

Other Thoughts: i guess dell spoiled me with all those service-doors on the back of the case! usually i have a laptop for several years, but this one only lasted a few hours before i am forced to return it.

4 out of 5 eggsBasic Laptop Solution

Pros: -Lightweight
-Good battery life
-Adequate screen size for traveling

Cons: -Not a fan of Windows 8
-None for this price point

Other Thoughts: It's a $250, 2.16 GHz dual core laptop.
Of course it is not a gaming laptop by any means.

I bought this exclusively for school, and programming a few productivity apps.

I also bought this with a 240GB SSD to increase battery life, and boost it's speeds significantly.

I was not able to find out which version of PCI-e it has equiped, but for the HDD it comes with, PCI-e 1.0 won't hold back any performance in particular.

For this price, and it's specs, you really can't be too upset with this purchase.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: lightweight, good battery life in power save mode, good screen color, size,

Cons: no cap lock indicator that i can find

also lag time for letter appearing when typing good bit of the time and when letter actually appears on screen in yahoo mail. can be very frustrating

slow response when right click in excel for formatting options

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Frank,

Thank you for the postivei comment. I apologize if you are experiencing stability issue with the keyboard being unresponsive. In order to improve system stability and performance, please install all recommended WINDOWS Updates and upgrade to WINDOWS 8.1 before using the system. We recommend using a LAN connection to speed up the update process. Also, please verify WINDOWS Update or an antivirus software is running in the background. These software utilize lots of system resources that can cause unresponsiveness to the keyboard temporarily. Please allow these applications complete the task before using the system. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N141042785 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Rodel
