  • Forced To Start Using Windows 10

    With Microsoft ending support for Windows 7 I realized I had to get a new computer. Fortunately Best Buy had a great Boxing Week sale so I ordered an Asus Vivobook. They had it to me very quickly and I started transferring everything over. The new laptop is faster, lighter and more intuitive. Of course, getting used to a new operating system will take time but so far so good. Connecting to the old Windows 7 laptop on my network has been difficult and MicroSoft's new ways of dealing with Excel and Word I don't like. Yes it is free on-line if you store your data with Microsoft. Instead I bought an older Office 2016 and it works just fine for my needs. Oh I should mention Best Buy offered me a Terra drive at a reduced price for buying the Vivobook. It came with a 476 gig SSD but we all know that will fill up fast so the outboard drive is a great bonus.


  • Screen is terrible
    by

    I bought this laptop when it was on a good sale, and it has really good specs. However, the screen is terrible. It is grainy, especially on solid backgrounds. All pictures look like you're looking through a grainy film. Not sure if this was defective, or is part of the anti-glare screen, but there's no way this should on this expensive of a laptop. I've used anti-glare screens before and they do not look like this. I had to return the laptop due to this problem, there's no way anyone could look at any pictures or do picture editing. Otherwise, the laptop was quite nice: very fast, lightweight. Battery was ok, but it's only a 2 cell. The fan was very quiet. Oh, and the num pad has a very small 0 key - might be difficult for people who are used to the wide one to adapt to.


  • Exceptional computer for a shockingly low price.

    I am absolutely loving this computer right now. I was shocked over how well it performs considering how low the price was. I run a lot of software like Ableton Live and various adobe programs and I had my doubts that it'd be able to handle it, but this computer is still smooth as butter. I couldn't recommend it enough. Thanks, Asus!
