A strong dissapointment 08/11/2011
Sleek, relatively slender, soft touch keyboard, great speeds (when it wants) and great picture quality.
I bought this thing back in December and within the last 7 months I've had to return this thing twice and now I'll struggle with my third time. First my speakers went out on me and then my hard drive had critical errors in it. When I sent in my computer for my hard drive I told them about my computer studdering during video card use after more than hour. They told me they fixed it but the first thing when I turned it on it did it again after an hour. Now I'm set to deploy in a month and Asus always takes so long I doubt that I will be able to get it returned in time. This was a big regretful buy seeing how on average it has a 2 month run time before having to be sent in. I've always trusted Asus in the past however, this purchase has really strayed me away from future Asus buys.
The lights on the side when in sleep mode will flash brightly and it is rather annoying. Asus also makes you pay for the packing to their repair shop through fedex which costs a good 20 bucks, plus they use the slowest means of shipping. Last repair this July took a month to get back to fedex plus the time it took to get to my house. Being in the military I need a laptop that I know will last longer than 2 months and so far it hasn't paid for itself. After shelling out the money for this thing for a deployment computer, I feel like I should have gotten something else for the same price, even it was a downgrade it would still have been worth it. Anyway, better luck next time.
