Customer Reviews of Asus K55A-WH51 15.6" Notebook, Intel Core i5-3210M, 6GB DDR3, 750GB HDD, Intel HD Grapics Media Accelerator, Window 8 Home Premium (64-bit)
I purchased this laptop from Dig Jungle in May of 2013. Today it died on me. The power supply is still functioning but the laptop will not turn on. 90day refurbished warranty leaves me high and dry. NOT WORTH THE MONEY.
Good deal. Nice laptop, looks like brand new8/22/2013
Received this laptop promptly as ordered. Came in brown box as refurbished. No scratches, not even sign of use. Asus has very nice design and is pretty slim though having 15.6 screen & DVD. Not bulky as Dell Inspiron. Very good webcam. Also HDD is split into 2 partitions, good to have for better storage. Good value for money. It came with Windows 8 which makes little slow and makes you feel if this is really intel i5 with 6GB ram ??? Overall I am satisfied with this purchase.

Computer is a great value for the specs. Works fine. However, refurb eliminates recovery partition, so I erased everything and put windows 7 on, which beats the heck out of windows 8 so many times over.

High Quality Value Machine6/28/2013
This laptop has much more than you would expect at this price tag such as a large hard drive, 6gb of ram, and i5 processor. Got it for my 14 yo and he is able to run the games and programs that he typically ran on our desktop. Only negative is that it runs Windows 8.
Very nice Asus laptop6/28/2013
So far, so good. I just received this yesterday and am very pleased with the laptop. A vast improvement over my previous Dell Inspiron (which was a good laptop which gave its all until it couldn't give anymore).
After problem was fixed, works very well. Using it to write this review.
So far this is a really nice laptop. The battery life is great, it does not get hot when using it, and everything works as it should. I actually really like Windows 8 and it is easy to get used to if you watch a couple short videos before using it (find on youtube). Adjust the mouse pad settings for scrolling and flipping through apps and you will be good to go.
I got the refurbished model for $398. I think it was a good deal. the delivery was quick. The only drawback is that I didnt like the Windows 8. Or may be I need to get used to it over a period of time. The refurbished model had some minor bruises but I still think it was a good deal.
Asus K55A-WH51 review6/8/2013
The laptop is not the best but is OK. Pros: Good attractive metal finish body, sleek design, Super cool, Excellent Battery Backup Cons: Display is no so much good. Its just more bright and picture quality are not so much sharp when i compare it with other laptops Keyboard keys are not so good. They are little bit hard to press. Its not like buttery smooth as we have them in new laptops Sound quality is ok but not matches with the Altec Lancing quality.

Bargain on a great laptop6/4/2013
15in laptop with 3 USB (2 USB3) /CD caddy/SD reader/Intel i5 chip & 6gb ram/750gb HD - What's not to like? This is a reconditioned late model machine with a as new appearance for only $398. I feel lucky to have found this fine machine.
This is a great laptop. It is Crazy Super Fast! It is amazing how affordable these laptops have gotten. The price is very attractive and once you turn this laptop on you will be hooked and won't go back to your old laptop.
