    A bit disappointed with the screen's resolution. I should not complain since it's only a $600 computer but it's 2021! When I first opened it, it brought me nostalgic feeling like it's still 2010. LOL I'm not here just to diss. I was looking for a cheap computer that delivers performance and this one does not disappoint. It's fast. Signing in is hassle free since it has fingerprint sensor. Never mind the screen's quality, you get what you pay for, right? lol Overall, I would recommend!

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    The laptop is good for your household use , as I am used to HP EliteBook that is in no way near this laptop. Remember at the same price tag , you will get an HP product that will be inferior to this quality of ASUS .It is the first time I bought ASUS and really impressed with overall looks and keypad, as if you are using a high end laptop. I have not tried to bulldoze it with a 100 apps as of now, but overall functions are good, startup and shutdown is quick. Although screen display is not up to the mark, but it is what you get the price. Not sure if it will heat up , the fan does make a noise. Hopefully it lasts me for a while

    Yes, I would recommend this to a friend.

    Reviewed by Cole - December 6, 2021

    Multiple dead pixels on arrival and the fan was not working properly, even just searching on google you could hear it from the other room. Very disappointed in this product to say the least. Was a special deal on black Friday as well, and was told it would be not be extended due to this manufacturing error and if I wanted to purchase one at a later date would be at full price. Was really expecting more as I have heard such fantastic reviews. Would not recommend purchasing this computer for yourself or any friends and family.

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

    My son was needing a new laptop for school and gaming so we came to best buy where I told the salesman what he uses it for and he was able to recommend this one for me. My son absolutely loves it and he says it's super easy to use. Bonus! Got it on sale for $550. Would reccomend to anyone.
