Great laptop for young teen, or anyone, really,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ASUS A53U-AS22 15.6-Inch Laptop (1.65 GHz AMD E-450 Processor, 4GB DIMM, 500GB HDD, Windows 7 Home Premium) Mocha (Personal Computers)
I was on a tight budget but really wanted my 13 year-old to have his own laptop for school assignments and playing games. This one fit my budget and his needs perfectly. I considered getting him a netbook, but for this price, the laptop has everything he needs and lots more storage and features than a netbook. The full version of Windows, processor speed, and a usable version of Word (not just a "sample" version like my old Compaq laptop came with) were features we liked. I was very impressed with the multi-touch features of the mouse touchpad, which take a little getting used to, but are really cool. So far, my son is mostly using it to play Minecraft, but the school year is young and parental hope springs eternal that he'll get good use out of it for school assignments and projects for several years to come. For the price, I think it's a really good buy. He gives it 2 thumbs up.
