Asus is great.

I actually bought 3 of the same model. 2 with Win7 and 1 with Win8. They all work great with no problems. I had an issue with "booting from CD" and had a few warranty questions which I used Asus chat. Asus support has been great! They are fast for what we do and they look great also. Adoroma, where we purchased them, packaged them very well also. The one support call to Adorama has been very satisfactory. So, as you can tell, I'm tickled pink with these purchases!!!

Fragile Electronics Inside

By

from Tallahassee, FL  -  Midrange Shopper

I am a programmer and power user. It's going to take a little while to get all my tools setup, but so far I am pleased with the speed of the system. It replaces a Toshiba laptop that was pretty speedy (3 years ago) that was damaged in a recent trip. Nice, bright LCD. This is my first LED backlit screen. Sharp graphics, too. Maybe I can add to this later when I get it loaded down with some significant programs. Now to the little issues...if Adorama packs camera equipment like they packed this laptop a lot of it must arrive broken. Granted, UPS was pretty rough on the outside box, but the inside box (consumer package) was in rough shape on delivery too. The packers used those little air pillows and few of those. As a result the laptop consumer box moved around a good bit in the packing box. I got lucky and the consumer box protected the LCD sufficiently and the laptop seems to have suffered no injuries. Remember, Adorama, even hard drives that have their heads parked can only take so much G Force from being tossed about. Treat all electronics as though it was fragile and you should be golden. Thank you and I'm enjoying my new laptop.

HIGH quality LOW price

By

from Chicago, IL  -  Quality Oriented

I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE this laptop. I had been researching laptops to replace my kids 2 laptops that had both died. I kept coming back to this ASUS. I ended up buying one for each of them and just recently purchased one for myself. I've upgraded RAM on all of them but even before.....SUPER FAST. Everything about this machine screams QUALITY! I love every feature from the instant-on from sleep to the sexy finished look of it to the fact that I can have it running and on my lap for hours and it barely gets warm. In fact, the only Con I can think of is the touchpad being very sensitive. It can make typing without interruption difficult but if I'm going to be doing alot of typing, I just disable the touchpad and use a mouse, easy fix.
