Good value and surprisingly high quality. Having read some mixed reviews about quality and finish i am delighted with this purchase. Firstly, i’m an it professional but wanted a cheap and cheerful full laptop so that i can take abroad to work – a workhorse not a fashion icon. It needed to be powerful enough and have sufficient features that i could still function away from home – i run my own website design business. This machine has exceeded expectations. Firstly quality and appearance. It appears solidly build, with a keyboard that feels responsive and precise. The only downside to be honest is that there is no caps lock light. The mouse pad is a lot better than my other laptop which is an hp and again functions precisely and smoothly. The casing is a textured finish not unlike some compaq or hp laptops.
And most importantly that it functions on the same basis as the new window phones we bought last year – setting it all up was ve. Yes it did – it was replacement or my husband’s gas operated 8 year old which was getting a bit temperamental. I bought this as it was basic enough to be understood, and most importantly that it functions on the same basis as the new window phones we bought last year – setting it all up was very easy as i bought a new asus myself last year with windows 8 and am used to the functionality already. A great machine for basics, and luddite husbands – who surprisingly- is beginning to like his new machine.
Quality products for a great price. The laptop is surprisingly robust for its price feels much more expensive than it is, it feels like a quality bit of kit. It got pretty decent processing power and does everything i asked of it without slowing. Its got a good sized disc for general use and unless your going to be storing thousands of photos videos and installing loads of games i doubt you would fill the hdd. The screen is very screen is good – being matt means there are no nasty reflections and the brightness and colour looks great. Bad points:windows 8 installed (bad in itself) but needed many hours of updates to get it to 8. The webcam is of poor grade and the microphone is also quite poor , so the skype experience is not good. Overall i was very pleased with laptop and i would defiantly recommend to my friends and maybe even on my blog as the laptop for the price is excellent that is why i have given the full 5 stars hope this helps people out when deciding whether are not to buy it.
Its okay but wouldnt buy again. . Dont get me wrong its good but what it says in the description wont be what you get. You will get an intel core i3 processor however it wont have 500gb it has about 200. It also has less than 4gb ram it has about 2gb and a 1. Go ahead and buy it but im staying well away from asus from now on. Also when i first got it a while ago last year yest ive put it through its paces. They wouldnt return my calls or emails until i drove to one of the head quarters in england when i passed my driving test. She then told me straight away to piss off and bother someoen else.
Good but 2 annoying features. This product was a replacement for my first laptop. The fast start is brilliant. No waiting around for the machine to start up, whatever model you buy, i would really advocate getting one with this facility. Subject to the last two points in this review, i would say this model is a good option for home computing. It seems to process quickly and plays video clips nicely. Screen is a good size and the keys are good – though i do not like the position of the ‘delete’ key which, on all the other keyboards i know, is usually on the top right hand of the keyboard. On this model it is muddled up to the left of the home key and the number keypad. Other than that slight complaint, no other signigicant observations on the screen or keys.
Reviews from purchasers :
- A Whole Lot Of Computer For A Relatively Modest Financial Outlay
- Good value and surprisingly high quality
- Such good value that you can accept the cons!
Very responsive and excellent screen resolution. Was not too sure at first, but it has grown on me. Very responsive and excellent screen resolution. Even getting used to windows 8. One thing that annoys me is the time and settings bar keeps interfering with your work whenever you swipe from the side, other than that very happy with purchase.
Battery life is good, it’s lightweight. I’ve had a few issues when it comes to shutting down. From more or less day 2 it posed a little issue, nether less it does all your basic emailing, web browsing etc. Still not got to grips with the separate hard drive thing but i will continue to play. Battery life is good, it’s lightweight. Basic but if your not looking for thrills then this could be the one.
