Awesome laptop

by Kim on 7/24/2013

Once we opened up this laptop upon arrival, we noticed that the laptop did not recognize the battery. Went online with ASUS (through Chat), and they suggested charging the battery for at least 6 hours to see what would happen. Once we did that, the computer taskbar icon showed "no battery detected". Laptop would run on the battery alone, but would not "start up" using battery only. Would only boot-up using AC Adapter. Contacted ASUS again through Chat, they recommended re-installing Windows 8, etc. Did all of that, but no success. Went back to ASUS Chat a few days later, and then contacted Amazon "returns". No questions asked, no hassle, immediate attention, and Amazon contacted UPS, arranged for pickup, immediately processed a replacement laptop, and no expenses to us. UPS picked up the old laptop today, and received word that the replacement laptop will be here in 2 more days. Pleased with service all-the-way around. Laptop is a graduation gift, and everyone is very pleased with the service. The laptop itself seemed to work fine (using AC adapter only), and Windows 8 seemed fine with the recipient of the gift, even though I'm more comfortable with Windows 7.
