Asus X505BA

Very slow even being brand new. If you're a teacher looking for a fast laptop to handle multiple tasks, this is NOT the laptop to buy. Will return in the next couples of days.

So slow it's unusable

I was very excited about getting this new laptop but that quickly came to a crashing halt. All the apps opened really slow (Windows Explore was over 30 seconds and Edge was even longer) . Even right-clicking for a context menu takes 5 seconds. Returned the device.

It’s good

Good laptop for professional use

I shopped for laptops for a while and this one was the lightest budget option.. It weighs about 3.7 pounds which, for a 15.6" with a decent disk space and RAM, is pretty good for the price. Better options are available if you can put more money on your laptop. But for a broke student, this is a very good option. The only disadvantages are the short battery life (3 to 4 hours, although it is advertised as 8 hours), and that the fans make a faint high-pitched noise, which can be annoying in the long-run. They are at their noisiest when streaming in HD or doing other demanding activities, so I wouldn't suggest this laptop for regular streaming use, although you can't hear them over a decent volume.

Great Laptop

I have put SSD from my old laptop into this and it works great! You can do some gaming but with lower setting. Overall very satisfied.

Extrêmement lent!!

Dès que j'ai terminé de configurer mon portable, une mise à jour nécessaire m'a été proposée. Alors je l'ai fait. Seulement, la mise à jour s'est terminée10 heures plus tard. Et le lendemain, croyant le processus terminé, j'ai réouvert mon portable et à l'ouverture, il y avait de nouveau une mise à jour. Même chose, la mise à jour a été complétée seulement plusieurs heures après. Ce n'est tout simplement pas normal pour un portable neuf d'être aussi lent. Vraiment déçue de ce produit....même chose ici, la seule solution est de le rapporter.

Very slow and unresponsive

Bought this computer based on its specs and wow, it does not run like it should. Very time-consuming setup, took about 6 hours to fully update and be set up initially. Restarted a few times due to slowness, never sped up. Unresponsive apps (Edge, Graphics Settings, etc) and poor screen quality. Overall a terrible computer and I returned it.

Amazing value for a budget laptop!

Out of the 5 laptops I have owned in the past, this ASUS has got to be the best by far. The setup time was less than 5 minutes and everything seems to run lightening fast thanks to a 3ghz clock speed and super fast DDR4 Ram. The aesthetics are very industrial with stainless steel accents and a sleek, extremely light weight design. As a network technician, this laptop does everything I ask of it and does not waste any of my time!

Something wrong

Initial setup was going extremely slow. The computer was responding poorly to every command. Rebooting was taking 5 min. I suspect something wrong with the initial configuration or bloatware excess. Returned to the store as the only choice.
