5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop for the money!

Pros: ASUS has always been a great company and make quality products for the price of the item purchased. The unit is pretty sturdy, keyboard has a nice feel, and it works as entended.

Cons: Given the price and knowing what I was going to receive, there are no cons as far as I am concerned.

Other Thoughts: I can't believe that this laptop hasn't gotten a better overall review. Come on guys! It's a $250 laptop... Do you really expect to get a DVD-ROM? How often does anyone really use one anyway? Lots of software are downloads or cloud services today instead of CD / DVD anyway. Anyone wanting better performance or a DVD-ROM should have looked for something in the $400 to $500 range. I really can't stand when people give bad reviews on items without regard to what the item is as far as specs. You buy a $250 laptop and review it as if it were supposed to be a $500 laptop. Bad reviews based on such things or done simply cause you want to bad-mouth a product keeps people from purchasing a great product for the money.

3 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Good performance. It's also surprisingly sturdy for it's slight build. I've had a child lean on it and I stepped on it in the middle of the night, and it's still fine.

Cons: 8.1 sucks. Only two USB ports. Performance is far from amazing. Track pad is glitchy to the point of being nearly impossible to use.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear James,

I certainly understand your concern regarding WINDOWS 8.1 and the issue with the touchpad. Please allow some time to get use to the multi-touch function of the pad. In order to improve the touchpad responsiveness and stability, please install all recommended WINDOWS Update. Also, try updating the ASUS Smart Gesture utility and try to configure the touchpad within the application. For helpful tips on how to use WINDOWS 8.1, please go visit the Microsoft website. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140831549 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

1 out of 5 eggsmistake

Pros: nothin special cheap price

Cons: windows 8, no dvd/cd i purchased this to play with windows 8

WOW what a mistake , i also learned MIcrosoft did not pay the rights for windows 8 to play a dvd or blue ray ..so even if you go buy an external player this thing is useless if your on a plane with no wifi...ASUS used to be a great mother board maker but this little thing stinks ...GREAT PAPER WEIGHT !!!!!

Other Thoughts: buy something else

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize if you were dissatisfied with the laptop. On the contrary, there are lots of very satisfied customers that are having positive experience using the product. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140831600 on the subject line.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat value

Pros: great bang for the buck I bought two of these for my kids my son runs wow and fair to good and gets mid to high 30's FPS and ESO low to mid seems to run fine. My daughter really only uses it for Netflix and social media but doesn't seem to have any issues. Very impressed considering the price!

Cons: No CD- Rom Drive but externals are cheap

Other Thoughts: Really seems to be a good machine will have to see how it holds up

Manufacturer Response:

5 out of 5 eggsImpressed

Pros: I'm the IT guy for a couple hundred small businesses and over 10000 residential customers so I've seen a lot of laptops. I saw the price on this ($250) and the brand and I couldn't resist even though I assumed it was too good to be true. This machine exceeded my expectations in every category. You do however have to have realistic expectations. This is not a $1000 gaming laptop. I bought it for a customer who does internet and email and it does that very well.

The Screen is glossy nice and bright, good viewing angle. I expected a washed out low quality screen.

The speed was actually quite acceptable. I was expecting it to be very sluggish with the low end processor.

The design is very clean. Keyboard works good touchpad is nice.

I really don't have a bad thing to say about the laptop. Now if I had paid $600 I would have been disappointed with the plastic feel and I would have wanted some more horsepower but its not a $600 laptop, Its just a great $250 laptop.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsNo DVD Drive

Pros: Price

Cons: No DVD drive

Pictures show it having a DVD drive and Im not sure what to do. I need a laptop right now and when I went to use the DVD drive it was not there! Should I contact Newegg now? I cant return it because I need it now and I dont really want to buy a new, price was a big factor when I bought this.

Other Thoughts: Well its price is great. It runs light application just fine and even some games. Ive ran Hearthstone and Terraria on it just fine. First time using Windows 8, its not bad. App store is fun I suppose. The light games and apps run quick and almost instant. No office or any software of that kind that I see if you need that.

For $250 this thing is great if it had a DVD drive.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Trevor,

I'm glad to know that the price is great and the laptop can run light applications and games just fine. I do understand your concern regarding a missing DVD drive. If this is needed, you can always connect an external DVD drive. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140743815 on the subject line.

3 out of 5 eggsSome problems.

Pros: You do get a lot for the money, but there are better choices - several other brands offer $250 laptops with the same specs. Another brand that also starts with A has one that is thinner

and the plastic spacer where the optical drive goes can be easily removed with 1 screw on the bottom on the unit.

One advantage of this one is that it has the numeric keypad on the keyboard, and some of the $250 models from other brands do not.

Cons: Does not come with an optical drive - looks like they're making that pretty clear now, but when I bought one the specs listed one and there were pictures of an optical drive with a disc.

This has since been changed, but that was the whole reason I bought one of these - the competing ones made it clear they did NOT come with an optical drive, and when I ordered it this one said that it did.

There is just a plastic space where the optical drive would be - but to remove this spacer and install a DVD-RW drive, or a caddy to hold a hard drive or SSD (there is a SATA port under there) you have to take the whole laptop apart. The screw to remove it is internal. Very annoying and a bad design.

The battery is also internal and you have to take the whole thing apart to get to that too.

It comes with Windows 8.1 but no sticker with a key, so if you need to re-install the OS, be sure to use a software tool to find your Windows key number first.

Screen is fairly low resolution - the standard inexpensive notebook screen. No surprise at this price though, it's reasonable.

Other Thoughts: I'd like the optical drive that was listed when I placed my order, or a credit.

It's not a bad laptop, particularly for the price, but there are better designs for the same money.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Nicolo,

It's good to know that you are getting added value with the laptop for the money. I apologize if you didn't receive what was advertised at the NewEgg webiste. I recommend contacting NewEgg to resolve this. I do understand your concern regarding a missing WINDOWS product key. No worries because WINDOWS is pre-activated once it goes online, no product key is required to enter manually. Should you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140744128 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

3 out of 5 eggsMeh.. Good for the price.

Pros: Good price, though it is pretty much the same as every other $250 laptop. Number pads are always nice to have. For everyday tasks or just a cheap backup computer it's great. Take it to school without worrying as much about it being stolen or broken.

Cons: Keyboard feels barely ok. Mouse pad feels horrible. The whole thing just looks cheap. Windows 8.1 sucks. Especially without a touch screen. Download Classic Shell and it's not so bad. NO OPTICAL DRIVE! Not sure what happened with Newegg's pictures, but it definitely does not have one. Just a plastic cover that looks like one.

Other Thoughts: Performance is sufficient for everyday use. Don't expect to play games or do anything more with multimedia then watching Youtube videos. It's really not bad for the price, but if you've been spoiled with nicer laptops before your not going to like it. No optical drive isn't that big of a deal. Honestly I can't remember the last time I actually used a cd in my main laptop.

3 out of 5 eggsOk for the price, but no Optical drive

Pros: Inexpensive
can be very effective machine for everyday use like email and browsing
pretty much everything you need for a give-away computer

Cons: NO Optical Drive, pictures are misleading, it is only first day so can't say much but HDD makes this click noise when shutting down, kind of skeptical if it will last for long. Of course, Windows 8 is the biggest con of all - I will try to install Win7 if drivers are found

Other Thoughts: CS was nice enough to give me a credit for no ODD
