Very slow processing speed, cannot run applications and games with efficiency and was overall a bad purchase, i would recommend you skip this laptop.

Laptop died completely after 16 months

I bought this Asus in August 2016. It seemed okay until late last night. I closed the lid and after opening it again, the laptop was completely dead. I assumed it was the charger but tried different chargers to no avail. The IT person at my school took the laptop apart and informed that the components were completely fried. If you're going to make a poor quality product, Asus, you should consider expanding the warranty for hardware malfunctions past one year. I, for one, won't make the mistake of purchasing an Asus again.

Would not recommend this POS

Bought the computer for daughter attending medical school. She tried it one day then half the keys didn't work next day. Open Box product came checked and guaranteed perfect by the Geek Squad, rrriiiiigggghhht ! They don't check them very well.

Excellent quality Asus laptop

I don't understand all the negative reviews. This laptop perform well with applications and games (and online games). It is slim and beautiful. It's ASUS!

Not Very Good

I tried to like this laptop, I really did. It was nice and light but from there it went downhill fast. There is no indicator the Caps Lock is on or off. It froze and crashed when playing YouTube videos for more than a couple of minutes. The left Shift-Key is a small target. The trackpad felt like it was about as thick as a credit card. The screen is poor and has a very narrow "sweet-spot" when the contrast is decent but it changes with the slightest change of screen movement (or head movement). 'Just not a good unit for anything.

Bought one of these and the next day speakers didn't work. The computer started to frezze. Than it would just stop running. Took it back got another one and the same thing started to happen. Day later I got the blue screen of death. Took it back and the sales person said and another being returned. I said what do you mean. Sales person said they have all been returned and said there not made good cheap parts.

Low End ASUS Laptops Are Pure Crap

Listen to the other reviews! Unfortunately low end ASUS Laptops are pure crap, and this one is no exception...very cheaply made with very cheap components that simply won't last long even for the most casual of users. And as for ASUS support, forget it!

Plus lent que mon portable 2010

On a achete le portable la fin de semaine derniere et il prend deja une eternite a ouvrir sans avoir rien ajoute. Nous allons aller le reporter cette fin de semaine. Ca n'a aucun sens. Dommage.

Worst Purchase of my life

Seriously this is not good laptop. Actually I am writing this review from the Asus Service center (Second visit to the Service Center for this product). Build Quality is as poor as you can expect. few of the keys jumped off the keyboard after using it for 1 week. Hard disc crash, and then system freezes in every hours. Seriously worst product.

  • from Windsor, ON


No joke worst purchase of my life, please save yourself the money. This thing is a waste and Best Buy with their great returns policy wont take it back. Literally buy anything else than this, runs like trash, freezes, and loses all ability to connect to the internet and I've only had it for a few months.

  • from Scarborough, ON


I bought this laptop online received on Jan 04 but I had to return it after 2 days because it was super slow and freeze in couple of minutes. I would not recommend it.

  • from Scarborough, ON

Totally disappointed

I have to return this laptop 2 days after delivery because it was super slow and freeze after couple of minutes of work. I will not recommend to buy this product.
