I bought this because I needed a good laptop to take with me on buisness. I didnt need anything fancy, but I needed a good solid computer. This fits the bill. I am currently running the laptop with windows 7 and linux xbunutu. It runs great and I have no problem with either OS. It stays cool all the time. My old laptop would get so hot that it would actually make t very uncomfortable to work with. I look forward to testing it out in field conditions. The battery life is pretty good, I guess I have totweek it some more to figure out how to get this 8 hr life they talked about, but 6 isnot bad either. All in all, it is a good laptop and I ould recommend it.

Just got it and seems fine. The system shows K53E and better than expected. Will update if anything negative found. If you register they claim you get an extra years protection free.

I've been using this computer for a week now and I really like it. The processor is a stripped down i3 and it handles everyday tasks well, including playing 720 and 1080 HD video. The keyboard is excellent quality. I don't like the touchpad, however I'm not a fan of them in general. The computer comes stock with a ton of bloatware but it is easily removed. Overall I would certainly purchase it again, especially at the $299 price point it was available for on Black Friday.

I've been a ThinkPad user for years but this Asus is of equal quality for sure.

I was very excited to get a good deal on a computer that was rated 5 stars by reviewers. Bought as a gift for my mother. When it came out of the box and the battery was charged, it wouldn't accept keyboard entry. After 3 calls (first one said "you need a new keyboard" and hung up; 2nd one said he could walk her through the set-up steps for $150; 3rd one was a great service rep. Turns out the alphabet entry was locked and he walked us through a reboot (pressed F9 a bunch of times as it restarted). Then after an hour or so, that part was fixed. Next day, we tried to access the Microsoft Office (limited function or something like that). The product key code would not work. Called Microsoft where rep gave us 4 different product keys to try. No luck. Referred to someplace else. They were all set to help us but turns out they charged $100+. It was like pulling teeth to get them to say whether or not there was a charge. Gave that up for another day. CD/DVD optic drive would not load any discs. Today (after requesting return label from Amazon) it ejected the disc that was trapped inside it. I am sad that this seemingly snappy little computer did not perform. I think I got a lemon. Too bad the service reps were so unhelpful, aside from the man who got the keyboard unlocked and the system rebooted.

I just recieved this product by ups today and it actually came earlier than it originally said it would arrive. So far I love this computer. It is very fast and just the perfect size. The battery life is great if you have your screen brightness on low, I am at 84% and it says I still have 6hrs and 23mins. It really is a good looking computer and is very sleek and sharp looking. The only thing that is not so great is the clarity of the webcam other than that it is an amazing computer and the perfect buy.

We bought this as a gift for a 12 year old. For the price ($399), this is an excellent computer. It is fast enough for all basic tasks, including streaming high-def movies, and a has a practical combination of features.

Plusses:
USB 3.0 port.
The aluminum construction means the computer runs very cool and quiet. This is a laptop that is comfortable to use on your lap.
Good battery life.
Good sized hard drive.
One year accident coverage.
Jitter free video.

Minuses:
Touch pad sometimes oversensitive.
Letters on keyboard are hard to see in low light.
Number pad cramped, and no bump on the "5" key makes touch typing difficult
No volume wheel for the speaker -- you have to do this with software. No dedicated media control buttons.

Neutral:
Sound is tinny, but not that bad for a portable of this size.
Hard drive is partitioned so that one partition (C:) is for the OS and programs and the other (D:) is for data. While this is very nice, the libraries are set to be on the C partition. However, moving them D partition is not very difficult.

Overall, this was exactly what we were looking for.

I got this laptop for my mother for Christmas, and within one week of her opening it and learning to use it, it stopped working. Considering it basically sat on her desk and was only lightly used to get e-mails and browse the Internet a few times, I'm completely at a loss as to why this would happen (and I've been working on computers for over ten years).

I will say that it worked pretty well for the few hours of life the poor thing had on this Earth. It was nice to look at, had a reasonable weight, and the attached numerical pad was great. Back-lit keys would have been nice but, given the low price, you can't expect everything.

We did call tech support and they walked us through the normal steps of troubleshooting ("Yes, it's plugged in..."), and they told us we could ship it back to them for repair, but at the end of the day, we just decided to cut our losses and get a refund from Amazon.

I was really expecting more from an Asus.
