I am enjoying this machine. It was a great deal imo.
— decent size screen with a good picture
— the laptop looks great, I like the back design and the black keyboard with the silver outline.
— this is smooth & speedy for surfing, media, office, etc and even for less demanding games like WoW, LoL, diablo etc
— great price. I got it for $100 cheaper here than from other sources
— windows 10 upgrade is a plus (even if it's free)
— built in Mic works pretty well, decent sound
— battery charge seems to last about 3 hours and doesn't take long to charge. This is better than my previous laptops, so this is a Pro for me.
— shipped very quickly!
Could be better:
— Only 1 headphone/Mic jack.. if youre like me and have a headset with 2 different plugs, you will only get to use one. And if you plug a mic into the jack, sound doesn't come out of the laptop speakers.. :/
— graphics card is mediocre. As I said, WoW runs pretty well. Good-high settings running 50-80fps. Could be better.
— the back of the laptop is susceptiple to scratches/grease stains. Beauty comes with a price, just be careful.
— if you are a gamer, the laptop and ac power cord gets hot. There's a sticker on the laptop that says “keep your hands ice cool” nope. wrong. It blows warm/hot air and your hands will be sweaty. The ac power unit will get very hot if it's plugged in while gaming. be very careful.
— all of the stickers on the laptop are majorly crooked. This is my OCD talking but geez.. I figured a human put the stickers on but I've never bought a laptop with the stickers completely crooked and out of place.
— webcam is atrocious, works though.
— I saw one review saying the speakers were great.
Well, what's your opinion about this Asus laptop?
