  • Poor Screen

    from Victoria on December 4, 2019

    I bought this on Black Friday and the overall specs are great. However, the screen quality is bad. I compared it to my 9 year old Macbook side by side and the screen was awful on the ASUS. I tried adjusting the colour calibration and watching numerous videos to fix it. The screen is very faded and washed out at it's native resolution of 1080p. I ended up returning it as the screen quality was so bad. It's too bad you can't upload pics for these reviews otherwise you could see the difference in screen quality for yourself.

  • Seems like a good laptop for the price

    from Winnipeg area on December 4, 2019

    The SSD makes this laptop fast! I still haven't really put this machine through its paces, but I'm quite pleased with it so far. Keyboard feels right and works well. Decent trackpad, sharp display, and starts up really quickly. I got it for 25% off the regular price, and that makes it very good value for the money.

  • Work well

    from H1g4p3 on December 3, 2019

    I bought it for the Black Friday sales, so far I’m really happy of this deals. It work well, it allows me to install many of my apps. But, i just heard the ventilator doing a lot of noise while I’m playing games. I think this is really common and normal no ? Brief, I’m happy so far with my purchase. A very elegant, thin and light computer !
