It does what it says on the package.

It takes a while to get used to window 8, especially shutting down computer. Lots of advertisements come to the screen when using Internet, There were so many with my old computer.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Monster Deal - was on refurb sale

 

Too bad this model is out of stock, I would buy it again even if just for a yestertech everyday low-load laptop

The price was amazing $350 refurbed since it was an older model at the time of my purchhase - Lots of ram, I5 cpu, 500GB HD, what wasn't to love? - I use it to run VMs.

- I upgraded it to Windows 10 after holding out for a while, WIn10 seems not to be a happy OS yet.

Good rig

 

Got me through college.

This is a good machine that has lasted me for years. Solid construction, easy to use.

One minor glitch when it was new. I could not create a new windows folder. I got that worked out with one conversation with tech support.

Failure prone

 

This laptop is no longer available. But I would/could not recommended purchasing an ASUS computer

Looks good Light

Critical HW/SW flaw required factory repair less than 60 days after first operations. A big hassle. Now, six months out of warranty, laptop ceased charging the battery. ASUS asked for $500 to replace motherboard. $500 will instead be applied to another...

Lemon finally expired

 

When it worked, it worked well enough for my purposes.

Frequent application crashes (browser, skype, file explorer, all at the same time). Either a bad driver or shoverware, but could never identify the cause after uninstalling and disabling junk. And now two and a half years after owning it, it died....
