    Great laptop especially if you can get it on a sale. Wouldn't try any extreme gaming on it but awesome for doing even basic tasks quickly.

    If you are getting a computer for your teen, I totaly recommend this. It's not super expensive and gets the job done. I wouldn't go adding computer games or uncessary things though as it will slow down computer.

    I purchased this laptop on sale for $279, and it was well worth it! It was easy to setup and is light as a feather (not really, but it is light). I love the solid state drive which keeps it quiet and cool, starts up in seconds and does what I need it to do. I'm not a gamer, so I wouldn't recommend this if you are one, but it works fine for word processing, e-mails, videos and the usual things that don't drag down a laptops resources. I highly recommend for a beginner or anyone who just needs a dependable laptop.

    Excellent Entry Level Laptop

    If you buy this, you are not going to be doing any hardcore gaming. This is an entry level rig that actually runs Windows without hiccups (youtube and Excel). So far I've run various Linux distros in VMware on either partition and kept the CPU below 70C consistently. Upgrading the RAM with an 8GB stick was a snap because of the door on the underside and replacing the SSD with larger one wasn't very difficult. If you don't feel comfortable with it then hire a pro or pop in a SD card for added storage. Besides being cheap, the single largest reason for choosing this computer was the keyboard. Among the less expensive laptops that are out right now this had the most comfortable layout for me. This machine is very lightweight and some of this is due to it not having a CD drive and I almost gave it 4 stars instead of 5 but then I thought, "When is the last time that I used a CD drive on any computer?"

    Decent, but glaring issue from the beginning

    Bought this for my girlfriend today. We like to do casual PC gaming but her previous laptop was going on 8 years old, and we were both feeling it. It had trouble running some pretty basic games (Borderlands 1 and some other games like that). Well so far this computer runs our games just fine. She also uses it for school and such. No issues regarding that either, so far. We're long distance right now, so Skype is also a big part of our relationship. This is where the issues come up. The webcam just refuses to work at all. We've been trying for 3 hours to get it to work and our record so far is 15 minutes, before it cuts to black. Sometimes it comes back on by itself for another minute or so, but it never lasts. We tried Discord and Facebook Video calling as well, both with the same issue. It's definitely the computer and not the applications. Extremely frustrating considering we brought it home too late to go return it the same day. We're trying a hard reset right now to see if maybe we did something wrong from the beginning but things really don't look good so far. It wasn't on sale either so we paid the full $400 for it. Her last computer costed half of that but at least the webcam worked. Definitely a disappointment. Maybe it's something we did wrong but I think in the 3 hours we've been fiddling with it and rebooting it, it's safe to say it's the machine, not the operator.

      Dear Quasartist,

      I do understand your disappointment and the inconvenience if you are experiencing issue with the webcam. It is a VGA camera so the resolution is decent. Please make sure WINDOWS Update current. Doing a video-conferencing requires a high-bandwidth internet connection, please make sure the unit has access to an established router and high-speed internet service is working properly since this will definitely affect the performance of the webcam. If you need further assistance, please email me at cl-rodel@asus.com and I would be happy to help.

      Thank you for choosing an ASUS product.
