So after a year of owning this laptop, I want to bring up a few issues. First off, the bluetooth adapter has failed. I have to use a USB bluetooth dongle now. Not certain if this is a prevalent problem, or something that's an easy fix, but I am where I am. Secondly, the fan problem has gotten worse, as this laptop will immediately spike to 95-100C CPU temps under regular loads, and idles at about 35-50C. Cleaning the fans and vents did little to alleviate the issue, so I'm thinking it's an issue with build quality. Lastly, and actually a bit of a compliment, the laptop still works just fine regardless. Considering the price and what you're getting, it's still totally worth it and has served me well. I needed a backup in a pinch when my main workhorse desktop needed repairs, and it handled the Adobe suite with no problem.
Did not work right out of the box. This is not a problem with this laptop, however. It is a problem with Windows 10, and affects multiple users:
I got stuck on a blue screen during the initial Windows 10-S configuration. To get around this, do not establish an Internet connection while configuring Windows 10-S. Skip that step. Select "I do not have an Internet connection." It will save you a massive headache. Set up your Internet connection after Windows has finished setting up.
If you're stuck on that screen, and cannot go back to the Internet configuration step, power down your router and restart the laptop (hold the power button for 5 seconds, wait 10 seconds, power on the laptop). It will restart the Windows 10-S configuration from the beginning, and with the router off, you can select "I do not have an Internet connection" at that step.
Windows 10-S is also an awful proprietary mess. It does not let you download or install programs I require for some reason, rendering the whole OS absolutely worthless. It's an obnoxious closed ecosystem on hardware sorely lacking engineering that makes such an ecosystem beneficial. Fortunately the laptop let me install a proper version of Windows for free through the Microsoft store, so only minor point deductions for just being a hassle, and not requiring an additional purchase.
The screen is about what you expect from a cheaper laptop. Nothing fancy. Certainly not something for optimum media or gaming experience. Picks up lots of glare, fades significantly when viewed at even slight angles, the usual issues. Bonus points, though, for outputting at native 1080p resolution, a major selling point for me getting this laptop.
The fan in it is LOUD. Whenever it's writing data, installing a program, or on resource-intensive websites, that fan goes at full speed, and it goes for a few minutes after these tasks have completed. It's pretty evident that this laptop struggles with cooling, as the CPU temperatures frequently spike to 90-100C while under load, and can take a few minutes to return to idling at the expected 35C. (Update: The temperature issues have gotten a little worse over the year I've owned this laptop, with temps idling around 45-50C, even after cleaning the fans and vents and doing a fresh install of Windows.)
Overall, as far as medium-range laptops go, it's decent. Gets the job done. It runs Photoshop 2019 just fine, and Photoshop 2021 about as well as Adobe's functionally broken mess can. It handles older games pre-2015 no sweat. Just might be a headache to configure and optimize right out of the box. But if you know what you're doing, and intend to use this laptop for mostly work-related activity or web browsing on the go, it's perfectly fine. The extra hassle is worth the money saved.
The keyboard is decent, the 10-key is a bit difficult with the keys not being the right size on the side. The button press is tactile and usable and the feel is fine enough for typing blind, which you shouldn't have to do since the keyboard is back-lit.
The touch pad is okay, it's actually a bit too sensitive, the lower corners can be used as buttons but I would greatly prefer physical buttons like on the current Lenovo brand laptops. The touch pad has a fingerprint reader in the top right corner which interferes with the operation of the touch pad but at least the fingerprint reader is fast!
The speakers are complete garbage, they have no semblance to actual sounds and it sounds like you are listening to a cellphone speaker through a wooden door. They are completely unusable for anything at all, do not buy this laptop if you enjoy playing anything on your speakers.
The webcam is usable, but it's nothing to write home about, capping out at 720p/30fps it will feel like a power-point presentation more than a video feed on any video chat. The sound is about the same as phone quality. If you do video chats frequently, find another laptop.
Back to windows and 'S Mode'. Windows is pre-installed, it had some of the latest updates already so it was recently installed. It doesn't have much bloatware, but having Skype installed is too much already. The "type" of Windows that is installed is called 'S Mode' which is basically a locked down completely restrictive version of Windows. You can't even download Chrome from the web you have to get it from the Microsoft store - Chrome being the first app I install on any Windows computer -. I removed 'S Mode' almost immediately.
The laptop has 4Gb of non-removable memory and 4Gb of replaceable memory which is nice even though it's only single channel.
The laptop is made from a plastic frame which I actually don't mind, it makes the laptop reasonably light, but it gives it a cheap experience. Opening the lid for example requires two hands or a technique, both of which is actually mildly inconvenient.
The good: Decent keyboard and touch pad, fast loading web pages
If you like a want a PC for viewing Netflix/media at home with no headphones, look somewhere else. If you want a PC for viewing Wikipedia/news then this will be decent but there are cheaper laptops that can do that better. If you have a fancy IPS monitor, you will hate this laptop. If you are even thinking about gaming, the answer is no.
Seeing as this laptop has such limited uses with the horrible screen and speakers, I cannot give this laptop a better review that 3 stars. It's only purpose is to view webpages and basic coffee-shop work.

Read the specs. We had specific priorities and this laptop may be missing some features/specs that someone else might consider important; NO LAN port, not touch screen, only 128 GB hard drive
By today's standards this is the best laptop we could find for $500. Of course, six to twelve months from now you will likely be able to get more for the same price. However, by today's standards we are very happy with the purchase!
Pretendo updatear esta reseña si es que se presentan problemas (ojalá que no).
Me gusta que es muy delgada y teclado extendido. Hay laptops como esta que no indica las mayúsculas ni el número pero se puede solucionar con uña software libre y ligero que se llama TrayStatus e inicia con Windows. En general encantado con mi asus amo a sus laptops.
Ahora ya no reconoce el disco duro, estaba trabajando normalmente ya iniciada la sesión y de repente se pone la pantalla azul y me manda directo a la configuración BIOS donde se ve que ya no detecta ningún disco, traté de conectar un disco duro externo para ver si al menos podía iniciar el sistema pero no fue el caso. Al contactar el servicio a cliente de ASUS para hacer válida la garantía me dicen que no es posible ya que la laptop es importada de EU y no la pueden hacer válida, solo me queda contactar a Amazon para que me puedan dar una respuesta
