I needed to upgrade my tech for a low cost and this fit the bill. I considered Chromebooks and netbooks which were around the same price point. At the price I paid, $350, I got a full laptop. The screen is great, I was surprised that the size of it and that the keyboard had a numeric keypad. Very nice entry-level laptop; something I don't have buyer's remorse about. I would not hesitate to purchase another one, should the need arise.

I needed to replace my 3 yr old Acer Netbook. I thought I liked small, but the old eyes didn't agree. So when I was visiting my brother and the Acer Wifi wouldn't work, I needed to upgrade. I actually bought an HP Compaq that came to a total of $338. Then I saw this one on Amazon for $349. It had more memory and a bigger HD. PLUS it had a numeric keypad on the keyboard. So I returned the HP and ordered this ASUS. I am so glad I did. This is an excellent Laptop for the price. I burned my backup D ... VD's and configured my WIFI at home and it works flawlessly. I just have to learn Win 7, all my other PC's run Win XP. I will admit I based my purchase on just a few excellent reviews, but there were NO iffy or negative ones and I can now add my own positive recommendation to them. 03/21/12 Update: I've been using the laptop for about 10 days now, there are simply no problems with it. Just a note..the "mocha" color is barely noticeable, it actually looks dark gray. You need to look real close to notice the slight brownish tint. So don't let the "mocha" color deter you. More >

This is a good computer for doing basic things for home usage and school work. However,if you are into playing a lot of computer games, it would be advisable to make sure you have sufficient memory and excellent graphics. I enjoy playing and downloading a lot of computer games and most if not all of them weren't very compatible with this system. So keep that in mind and just read every detail about the description of a computer system before you buy it. Overall,for the price I paid, it was an ex ... cellent deal. More >
