It sucks and it breaks fast

Good enough for my daily uses

So, I initially bought this laptop thinking that It'll be good enough as a daily driver but I was wrong, the computer has some issues. The computer would freeze up out of no where, this is especially annoying because I'd lose my work. but so far it's been an amazing computer. The i7 processor and the dedicated GPU is good enough to use cycles rendering in Blender. The computer stays cool at times but when I'm using intensive applications the computer does heat up a little. I'd recommend it but at the same time I wouldn't, the computer has its fair share of advantages and disadvantages. If you're looking for something that isn't too pricey, then by all means, purchase this computer but I'd recommend you spend a bit more on a better computer.

Do Not Buy

similar to others mine was fine for a few months before completely falling off the deep end. it crashes regularly, runs slower, and I've lost some data to its failures. seriously recommend waiting out on a more expensive laptop over this. I regret every dollar

Five month old laptop already went to manufacturer for help

Had laptop for only 5 months when the wireless adapter broke, full clean reinstall of windows 10 by manufacturer still didn't help (their customer service is also a joke, don't bother with ASUS anything) and I regret every dollar I spent on this machine. Slow, clumsy and full of cheap parts. If you do buy it, make sure to get Best Buy's extended warranty because you're going to need it

Screen flickered immediately after initial start up. Read that this was a common problem. Was very disappointed especially given the price. Returned for refund.

Similar issues with the i5 versions. Better off paying a little bit more for a bit better. TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE

  • from Ottawa

Did not work

The description seems to assure buyers that Open Box products are sound and reliable, but this laptop was completely inoperable when delivered. Plugged it in, turned it on, and received an error message. Returned it in the next day. Thankfully Open Box is covered under the return policy, but definitely was a waste of time.
