I'd buy from another brand.

Pros: I suppose when it is properly working it gets the job done. It is relatively fast, and works well for word processing and internet use.

Cons: I have had major issues with powering on this computer. If it is left powered off for more than an hour or so, 95% of the time it won't turn on and I have to remove the battery and let it sit for a few minutes in order to get the computer working again.

I'm an avid gamer, and I play games such as League of Legends, Minecraft, and Left 4 Dead 2 which aren't particularly hard on a computer. I would experience horrible frame rate drops and had to factory reset the computer on multiple occasions.

The USB ports randomly stopped working for my Steel Series mouse, which had been working fine for over a year and still works fine on my other computer.

Overall Review: It's not a bad laptop for the money, but it just seems to have way too many issues for what it's worth. I sent in an RDM form to Asus today, so it's hopefully still usable as a work laptop in the future.

Dear Valued Customer,

I apologize if you are experiencing power on related issues. Please verify if the unit is running with the most current BIOS version and all recommended WINDOWS Update were installed successfully and the OS was not corrupted. The laptop was not designed for gaming, this will defintely cause drop frame and system stability. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and write down service# N140935265 on the subject line.

Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.

Regards,

Rodel

No more ASUS for me

Pros: It worked fairly well for nine months.

Cons: At only nine months old, and without ever having a lapse in anti-virus, the computer had slowed down to the point where loading Windows took a minimum of 8 minutes and using the computer was impossible. When I tried to run the recovery partition that came with the computer, it did not work. I will now have to replace the hard drive or the entire computer. What a waste of money.

Affordable, lightweight, above average for everyday tasks.

Pros: So lightweight! From standby mode (screen down) it really is a 2-second on! Keyboard lights up, and very good battery. Lots of hard drive space.

The price was about right for this laptop. Nothing spectacular, but very travel friendly.

This is a great all around laptop, although I wouldn't classify it as a ultra-book.

Cons: Mediocre webcam. So much bloatware.

Overall Review: I'm using it mostly for 2d game programming and have no complaints. Love the lightweight feel. Some people have complained about the placing of the trackpad, saying that they hit the pad with their thumb or palm more often than not. This is not the case for me. I got used to it pretty quickly and that rarely happens to me anymore, usually when my posture is bad.

All good but the mouse pad

Pros: Powerful, sleek, light, sharp looking, large memory and good RAM.

Cons: One con is the mouse pad. Can't rest the heels of my hands on the laptop or the cursor jumps. Can't set the sensitivity of the mouse pad. Real bummer and a pain in the rump.

Frustration

Pros: Decent computer, decent graphics, fast, I've had some trouble with running Windows 8 but I think that's more to do with the software than the computer. I got a great deal on it so I think it was worth the price. BUT......

Cons: .....the touch pad is placed off to the left so much that while typing it is impossible not to brush the top with my palm. This misplaces the cursor and suddenly I'll be typing miles away from where I began. VERY ANNOYING...can be solved though by using a mouse and turning off touch pad but frustrating when that is not an option.

Overall Review: Overall, I am fairly pleased with my purchase.

Dear Valued Customer,

If you are using an external mouse, it is possible to turn off your track pad so that you don’t accidently hit it while typing. There should be a keyboard shortcut to turn it off. You can also go into your Device Manager and manually turn it off, also. If you have any questions, or if you would like further support, please e-mail me at cl-tien@asus.com.

Best Regards,

DO NOT BUY

Pros: when it works it doesnt give off much heat.
its smaller and thinner then most newer laptops
It worked for 1 month properly. I Guess thats some sort of victory for NEWEGG since I can't return it now.

Cons: the mouse pad is in the wrong area. It's a constant battle accidentally touching the mousepad and it makes my screen dim out like it's in sleep mode. The biggest issue is the power source. The computer constantly acted like it was charging not charging vice versa it was annoying and then it finally killed my comp now it doesn't want to charge and now it doesn't work.

Overall Review: In the end I would avoid this product. Most of the reviews are from people who had it for 1 week or less. I have had it for 3 months. The issue with the charge not charging thing has been going on since the beginning. I would avoid ASUS I will go APPLE from now on. Windows based systems have been going down for sometime now to get a functional laptop that can last at least a few years is beyond a dream its more like a fantasy. This has done it for me.

Not Stunningly light nor Powerfully built.

Pros: There is little to recommend this. I suggest you look elsewhere.

Cons: I continue to get a slight tingling in my hands when I touch this device when it is connected to the power. I looked in vain for an ASUS support number on google. I didn't find one, but I did find many comments from unhappy ASUS wners who reported dismal customer service. I wish I had read those comments before buying this machine.

Fancy

Pros: -Battery Life (4~8hrs 7hrs avg)
-Backlit Keyboard white 4settings(off light medium high)
-Ease of upgrade single panel easy access to drive and ram (upgraded to 120gb SSD, 6gb fine for now)
-price @5oo was great
-3210m a marked improvement over 3110m
-blutooth, hdmi, usb 3.0

Cons: -touch pad gestures are fun, but mistouch and lack of precision make this thing annoying (easy fix w a m525 3yr battery mouse)
-mine came with a defect in the left ctrl button. when i press it down it occasionally sticks. This minor defect was not worth the hassle of dealing w rma or repair especially when it will probably fix itself after using it for a while. It is the only reason i docked an egg.

Overall Review: -Overall this was a perfect solution to make me mobile. I can play most games on low to medium settings. Even arkham asylum was playable on low everything.
-Its great to be able to unplug this from the wall and not worry about the battery.
.
-I can recommend this comfortably for anyone that needs a pc to run anything and everything with mobility: classroom, travel, business, pleasure. If you need high end gaming/cad then you buy a desktop/workstation/gaming laptop.
