I've long been a fan of ASUS engineering; uses their motherboards for my desktop builds for years. However, their customer service is really lacking now, and be prepared for potential problems if you purchase a product from them.

Upon arriving, the laptop had a broken hinge cover (little piece of plastic over the hinge). I figured it's no big deal considering my level of computer knowledge, so I called ASUS to receive a replacement hinge. However, ASUS told me that they would not ship me the piece. The only way it would be covered under warranty is if I sent it in to them for repair. I explained that I'm not willing to send the laptop out risking shipping damage and go without my laptop for 2 weeks to repair a piece of plastic that I could fix in two seconds. I called three different times and even asked to speak to a manager because I thought it was ridiculous and made no sense to send the whole computer in. I can see if it was an internal problem or DOA, but for a little piece of plastic that is made to pop off, I can see sending it in for repairs. I told them that I was A+ certified and a life long loyal customer but they didn't care. They told me to buy the part in their online store and it ended up costing me $21 to fix a new laptop.

Now for the laptop review:

It's pretty good for a $400 laptop. Not gonna play 3D games or anything, but I wasn't expecting that for the price.


- Very cool operation; no discernible heat around your palms or anywhere else. Low power consumption and exception design yielded very cool operation.

- The bloatware installed is actually ASUS applications and not the usual AOL crap you get from a cheap laptop.

This is my 1st Asus laptop, but not my 1st Asus product. I expected nothing but perfect coming from them and I wasn't let down. It is 4gb of DDR-2 Ram. Some were concerned about if it was DDR-3. Even so it runs and loads quickly. The HDD is 5400 but it works just fine. As of now I haven't had any problems with it at all. Everything is working great and I love it. It's a black carbon fiber look to it which is very nice. It's not too heavy, it feels well made and looks nice. I highly recommend this laptop for a student or anyone that uses alot of media. The 500gb HDD is great for all your Music, Movies, and Pictures. Does everything I need it to!

The first thing I noticed about this computer is how fast it shipped. This is probably a function of Amazon, rather than this product, but I ordered it Wednesday, then got it Friday. This was with free shipping!

The computer itself is excellent. If you look it up on the ASUS website, it will say it has Windows Vista and a tiny amount of RAM and HDD. THIS IS NOT SO! The computer, just as it says on Amazon, has Windows 7, 4GB RAM, and 500GB hard drive space. It runs fast, and is super-easy to get started with. The only reason I took off a star is because it doesn't com with Microsoft Office. This is not a big problem for me (I only ever used Word, and Notepad works just as well) but it could be for some users, so take that into account before you buy it. Otherwise, a great computer at an awesome price!

Was looking all over, and you can't beat the package for the price. Plenty of capacity and power, and without a doubt, the best in its price range. It's worked pretty well, so far, and I'm on it constantly (As we speak).

I love the programs that it comes with, too. The face-recognition login feature is really cool, to say the least. Webcam is good. Mic is in a good spot. The speakers are actually in the bottom of the laptop, right by where your wrists sit. It's kind of strange, but it actually does a great job in getting the sound behind you, and immersing you in your movie, song, or game.

At first I didn't like the touch pad, but i got used to it quickly. the multi-finger set up works well, and the two-finger scroll is excellent. You can even press with all three fingers in a triangle, and it will send you straight to the desktop, which is really handy. of course, you can change all these as you like.

Windows 7 is amazing, but that's not technically the product, here, so i won't go into much detail.

overall, it's just a great laptop. Personally I play a lot of games, so I would have preferred a slightly bigger processor, but it's a tough, little thing. plenty of power, in all fairness.

If I was to buy another laptop for $400, I'd definitely grab another one of these.
