I bought this laptop to replace my old Dell and I love it! It boots in around 20-30 seconds and is really fast in High Performance mode. It can even run Starcraft 2 with no problems. For the people that say it's slow, have you looked to see what mode it's in? It has 4 operating modes. High Performance, Entertainment, Quiet Office, and Battery Saver mode. It comes with Battery Saver mode on default so make sure to change it. If your looking for a really good laptop for a fair price then this is the one to get.

Update:
I have now had this laptop for almost three years and it is still holding up very well. By now the hardware is slightly outdated, but it still performs exceptionally. Over time the laptop has slowed down a little bit, but I have counteracted by upgrading the RAM prebuilt into the laptop. I still use it for mid-level computer games and for other day to day uses which it is very well suited to do. If you take of this laptop it will perform great for a long period of time and makes a great cheap device.

I only docked a star from it's rating because of the slow down over time and because the laptop is actually an ASUS K53U and not an A53U. I have no idea why Amazon has it listed as an A53U as you can find no details on the ASUS site about an A53U. Otherwise this is a great laptop!

This review is not going to be extremely in-depth, because I bought this computer for my dad for Christmas and only used it for about 2 days to get everything set up on it. Side note: My personal computers are Macs, but I am not extremely biased on operating systems, and I think Windows did a good job with 7. That being said, here is my initial impression on the computer.

The shipment of the laptop was quick and free (thanks Amazon Prime)! Packaging was minimum, but definitely secured and padded the laptop, which is a bonus in my eyes.

Upon opening the packaging, the computer looked sleek. It seemed like it was made not as study as a MacBook Pro (my Mac side showing), but it also wasn't cheaply made. It's made with plastic, which allows for it to be lighter and hopefully more durable.

Windows 7 Home Premium came with it, which is a nice upgrade from the basic, but it came loaded with all the Asus add-ons and slowed down the performance greatly. On start-up, the computer was using about ~65-70% of the memory performance. There was A LOT of programs running that was bogging down the performance. The very first thing I did was install a fresh copy of Windows 7 Home Premium and wiped the hard drive of all the nasty programs. The Windows 7 disc didn't come with the computer, so it may help to have a friend that has a physical disc and you can just load your OEM Windows key that came with the computer (on the box).

Once a fresh Windows 7 was installed, the computer ran like a dream. It is mainly being used for web surfing and light office work. I haven't received a call with any problems with it, so it's holding up!

We purchased this to replace a Gateway laptop and I have to say so far this ASUS is an excellent little computer! Very easy to get this up and running and it loads pages quickly. The warranty that comes with the laptop is one of the best that I've seen. For the money you can't go wrong with this!

This was my Christmas present to myself. I am using it to replace my much more robust HP Pavilion 17 inch laptop, which is not that portable. The HP works great as a home computer, but is heavy and cumbersome for travel. This new ASUS is just right for travel. It is light weight, and the screen is big enough to work remotely. It works great as an extra computer (as I also have a desktop.) It is the perfect device that is in between my Xoom Tablet and My HP Desktop. I would not recommend it for someone who depends on a computer solely for their lively hood, but it you need a great computer for email, internet surfing, and smaller job task, this is perfect.

Computer works fine. Less bloatware than an HP or Dell, but still required some removal at first set up. If you're trying to play Skyrim, this is not your machine. If you're going to email, skype, play angry birds and eventually do school work... this is fine.

I spent a day clean reinstalling this model for a Christmas gift for a 12 year old, after trying to clean up the preinstalled factory bloatware resulted in hangs and explorer crashing. As always it runs instantaneously after a clean reinstall, but users should be aware that the cam software package will not work when installed from Asus Downloads webpage for this model. This means you can't look at yourself with various controls to tweak appearance. However the cam still works with the Win7 driver given for real-life needs like Skype or Video chat that rely on those 3rd party programs.

Use free MS Security Essentials AV for best performance, with all startups except AV turned off in msconfig>Startup and >Services after hiding all MS services.

Clean reinstall requires the quick robocall activation necessary when the COA sticker containing Product Key has OA (offline activation) after the version name. You can google the official Win7 ISO download to burn to DVD.

Other than using the drivers which Win7 delivers in installer and are updated quickly via optional Windows Updates, I did also import the model's chipset which often adds functionality on laptops. I noticed no additional performance gain. The laptop has instantaneous and feather-light performance which is what one should expect with Win7, after conquering the factory bloatware which throttles and corrupts the best OS ever.
