Snappy Little Laptop for Cheap

 

Still a good buy though. I would probably get this again if I were to get it at a similar price.

For the price I ended up getting it for, this is an awesome laptop. I use it for school and it works really well for it. I also use it for Light 2D gaming. It does this well, and only really gets hot when im gaming

There are a few complaints I have about this ; The microphone stopped working when I upgraded to Windows 10 (This may have been something I did though) ; I do not like the position of the trackpad. I accidentally get it in the way with the gestures all...

Solid ASUS with i5-4200U

 

Slow HD but if you will change it for HD with 7200 or SSD the laptop will fly. Power supply is ugly. It's a brick with direct plug so it's not convenient.

This is a very good laptop. It's very low noise, quite ; Good processor performance ; Good GPU performance ; Stylish ; Low weight. It's a big plus if you need to carry it around ; windows 8.1 + classic shell = almost windows 7. So it's OK ; Recovery...

NO Recovery Partition w/ Refurbs!

 

I think Haswell performance vs. AMD is better. Once recovery partition is created by ASUS and I can make a recovery disc I'll be a much happier customer

Just FYI. If you buy a refurbished ASUS computer buyer beware. They delete the recovery partition on refurbs. Ugh! And you only have a 90 day warranty to ship item back to them to reset to default factory settings and create recovery partition. Only...

Great computer, horrible software problems

 

Touchscreen is great

Comes with Win8. NOT Win8.1. Requires 167 Windows Updates for security purposes before you can upgrade to windows 8.1. You're required to upgrade all of these before you can use anything in the App Store. Like, oh, maybe I want to download skype? NOPE....

Quick, can't tell it was refurbished!

 

Not built for gaming, but ideal for school/office and travelling.

Slim ; Battery lasts a long time ; Fairly quick with the stock HDD, but I replaced it with a WD2 black and it did wonders ; Ram seems to be on par ; Webcam works ; Microphone doesn't have much feedback, which is always a pro

Webcam isn't the best quality ; Very glossy screen, if you're using this in direct sun it's a nuisance of glare ; Short charging cord

NO REFURB

 

New Egg has always been the first place I look when contemplating a new computer related purchase. This experience and the downhill slide in customer service has changed that. NOT A HAPPY CAMPER

New Egg pulled one over on me. I figured that if I could trust anyone buying a refurb it would be NewEgg. NOPE. They have gone downhill slowly over the years with the ease of dealing with a bad product. Now they are no different than most retail shops...

Laptop has crapped out after LIGHT usages of less than 6 mos
