ASUS Laptop X501A-WH01 Intel Celeron B820 (1.7 GHz) 2 GB Memory 320 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 15.6" Windows 8
  • Intel Celeron B820 (1.7 GHz)
  • 2 GB Memory 320 GB HDD
  • Intel HD Graphics
  • 1366 x 768
  • Windows 8

Pros:

Got it cheap at a big box store, worked well for 6 months (although I hate windows 8).

Cons:

After 6 months of normal use, booted it up to find a white screen. The computer seemed to be functioning normally and it was just a display issue.
Did some research and found that it's a common problem with this model. Took it apart and reconnected the LCD cable, didn't help. (and in the process damaged the screen, so I don't think ASUS will RMA it for me).

Does not support booting from usb drive (by any method that I could tell) and wasn't able to load Win7.

Other Thoughts:

Get a laptop with a better track record.
