Edit- Amazon now has the laptop $100 more than I paid for it. Take that into consideration when reading the review.

I bought this for a present for a family member on the Black Friday deal, so my time using it only included starting it up, updating windows, removing Mcafee, installing adobe flash, reader, and Java, installing Libreoffice, and making the restore disks.

Unfortunately battery life will not be included in this review.

First impressions - WOW! taking it out of the box I was very impressed with the look, feel, and weight. It's very light compared to my Toshiba and HP I3 laptops.

texture- the entire laptop as with most Asus laptops have what appears to be a semi-rough texture on the palm areas and mouse pad. This texture kept my family from buying these laptops and I have to say that's very unfortunate, because after spending 5 hours setting the computer up I realized one thing.. I love the texture! It's so much more comfortable than it appears.

Screen - I didn't get to play games or watch movies, but what I did get to see is the viewing angle of the screen is pretty much unlimited. Unlike my Toshiba I3 LCD laptop that you have to constantly adjust the screen so you are square to it or you can't see, the viewing angle of this Asus LED is very wide and actually better than my HP LED I3 laptop that cost twice as much.

RUNS COOL! - I can't overstate this enough. Place my other two I3 laptops on the bed and within 20 minutes the Toshiba will be very warm and the HP will actually overheat with both units fans running at full speed like an airplane. I ran the Asus on the bed for 3 hours during my installation and the unit never got even close to luke warm.

Bought this during the black friday sale for my dad for Christmas. The laptop has a cheap plastic feel with textures to make it feel, well, less cheap. But I didn't buy it for the exterior, I bought it for the price/performance. I did remove some bloat ware that would potentially slow it down like the McAfee trial and some other stuff I know my dad nor I will ever need and installed MS Security essentials. It handles all the windows update fine, usually I'd get hiccups with some updates but not this time. I installed photoshop and illustrator and it runs well. The battery life is what you would expect about 4 hours of intensive usage. I know my dad is gonna love this when he gets it.

This is a basic laptop for a person who does basic things. In that regard, this laptop is GREAT. I had friends telling me to buy a MAC just because it's popular and because I can afford one, but all I do is download music, browse the web, watch videos, and write countless college papers-- all very simple things. So I didn't need a pricey, over-the-top laptop; just something basic but of good quality and at a decent price. So a couple of people recommended an Asus. Not very familiar with Asus, I had to do a little research on it first. Then, I spotted this on Amazon one day. I've had it for a few days and I am quite pleased. I am not tech-savvy AT ALL, but the setup and everything was very easy and it runs quite smoothly (at least so far it does). My only aggravation with it is very slight-- the keyboard is wider than what I am used to with my old Dell. The keys are wide and flat and my fingers can't grip them, so my typing is sometimes very off unless I am looking down. But this is just an adjustment issue; I'm gradually getting used to it and I'm looking down less and less as I type more and more. Also, it is true that the volume doesn't get too loud but that's really not a big deal to me. I like how smoothly this laptop operates, its light weight (compared to my old Dell), and its simplicity-- all at a great price!

Updated(after 2 months of use)

I bought this laptop on black Friday (about $100 discount) to my brother who wants to use it for word processing, internet browsing, watching videos and playing games. I have used it for the last three weeks. Surprisingly, I found this laptop to be much better than my Toshiba Satellite M305D-S4828 which I bought for $700 about four years ago. So I decided to use this for myself and give my old one to my bro. I am planning to use it for basic applications (internet, video, games...) and also to run simulations in Matlab which needs a fast processor.

-I3 2.1GHZ processor which is very adequate for most applications that I am planning to use it for
-Runs very cool
-Number keys pad included in the key board
-HDMI and USB 3.0 outputs
-Light weight for a 15.6 inch laptop

-The quality of the speaker is average. Slightly Lower than my Toshiba laptop (Dolby sound room).
-Power input location is on the side. I would prefer it on the back side.

Other info
I got about 2hrs battery life on high-performance. So I would say about 3 - 3.5 hrs if it is used on power saver mode. I am not really concerned about battery life either because battery performance usually decreases fast upon use.

In summary, I am very satisfied with this laptop.
