Very Very slow and freezes repeatedly right out of the box

This was a Christmas gift and unfortunately it took it over 24hour to do its first update after charging. I turned off the sleep mode and plugged it in so the update wouldn’t be interrupted but even then when we woke up the next day it was still updating. Once it was finally done we restarted it again just to make sure it would work..... it is incredibly slow and the fan is really loud. I’m very disappointed and saddened that my sons gift wasn’t as nice as it should have been.

I wanted to like it

I really wanted to like this laptop as I have other Asus products. I bought an Acer with the same specs to compare to this one and I like the look and feel of this one better and the speakers are better but that's about it. The loud fan or hard drive noise is really bothersome and I see a lot of other Asus laptops have the same complaint. The Acer I got doesn't make anywhere close to the same noise. This also took a long time to set up, was really slow at first as it had issues with the disc running at 100% and took a couple days to fix. I configured it to fix the disc issue but I can't get over the loud noise it makes on and off constantly. If it wasn't for that I would keep it but I the Acer was fast and working from the beginning with no issues or noise problems so that one wins in this case.

very slow for 8GB Ram with i5

Not impressed with this unit at all! Windows update was about 10-12 hrs over night just to update on reasonably fast internet! moderately low res iPhone video very choppy on media player, already froze once (in first day) nothing but a couple pictures!! keyboard very loud and sounds like your on a type writer!! overall far from happy and will be returning!!!!!

Garbage

The unit arrived with a dent on the surface on the side where the keyboard is, by the speaker, meaning that this was not dented during shipping but dented during production. The fan has a loud weird noise that makes me think it is not normal. I tried to set it up, and it took about 10 hours for update using 50mb/s internet (fast internet). This casts some doubt to the overall performance of the computer though it could be more of a Windows issue. The performance is okay after set-up, but because of the obvious dent and the fan issue, I think I will be returning this. Too bad, the price is really good for the spec, but Asus has lowered their quality standards by a lot.
