    Great price on SSD laptop. Only negative is the caps lock key does not light up nor show on the screen which is a negative for hidden passwords. The settings allow you to have the caps lock make a sound.

    Works great for my daughter only drawback was size of HD but since it gets better performance with the SSD I just spent an extra 50 for an external 1TB and it's all good to go

    This is a great laptop with 8Gb of memory and SSD for under $400.00. Easy set up and working better than expected at this price point.

    OK basic computer. No frills. The SSD is faster than traditional disk.

    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.

    Snappy Performance, Great Value!

    Love it so far, replaced a four year old Toshiba. For $320, to get an 8mg memory and a 128mg solid state drive laptop is awesome. Easy set up, fast performance, nice features. No DVD drive or touchscreen, but my stuff is securely in the cloud, so this laptop is an ideal web surfer. ASUS has a good reputation. Thank you Best Buy!

    Purchased for regular business trips and have been impressed. The monitor is sharp and well sized for a laptop. The A12 processor does a great job of handling most things I threw at it. It was even able to run some older games at decent framerates (I play Team Fortress 2 to unwind). With 8 GB of DDR4, it was able to handle my multitasking and is one of the few I found able to expand to 16GB. The only down side was the small hard drive, but that was easily fixed by upgrading it to a 250 GB SSD. Pros: RAM, Processor and GPU good. Cons: SSD small.

    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?"

    I purchased this ASUS X555QA laptop on 4/27 and I am very pleased with it. I bought it already on sale $100 off, and with a Best Buy $5 reward certificate only paid $294.99. You simply cannot beat this value for a laptop with 8GB RAM and an SSD. It runs very quickly and I am satisfied with the ASUS fit and finish which traditionally has been top-shelf. I highly recommend. I am not a huge fan of Windows 10, so I installed VMWare virtualization software. I am now running Windows 7 as a guest operating system and all my programs in a virtual machine. Long live Windows 7!!
