Nice screen and keyboard. I like Ubuntu and LibreOffice. Does everything it needs to do. Size is good and overall it feels like it is good quality. Wifi has been good so far.
Trackpad sucks. It is really, really bad. Feels awful and is very loud. It clicks too hard and the sensitivity on the tracker is off. Just terrible. Feels like they designed the whole laptop with care and precision, then just threw in the cheapest, crappiest trackpad they could find.
The box appears to have been opened. The ASUS sticker/seal had been taped back on and there was some dust/debris around the corners of the screen. The papers were a bit wrinkled like someone had flicked through them. No scratches, fingerprints, or other signs of ware. It booted fine and Ubuntu installed as new, but I was a bit miffed that it had been opened (possibly a return?). It was a gift and did not want to go through the hassle of returning it.
Purchased for my wife as a replacement word processing laptop (replacing an old MacBook). It seems to meet her needs - keyboard is nice and the screen is the perfect size. Very portable.
The mouse is really just terrible. Could use an external mouse, but she likes to use it in bed and its really not practical to connect a mouse.
Note: Netflix will not work initially. Just google for the solution.
