Problems with operating system software7/25/2013
We had problems from the start. I requested a return and just as the shipping label arrived, my tech found out that the Windows 8 had not been installed properly. He reloaded and it seems to be working ok. The Windows 8 does take some getting used to. Once the program ran correctly we had no problems. I cancelled the return and kept the laptop. Rakuten was very quick to offer any help needed.
Really excellent product - would recommend to anyone who is looking for that all around notebook for home and office.

nce excet for the keyboard2/22/2013
i am a touch typis. i am using the keyboad of this samsung laptp t type his revew. go figure. except for this crappy keyboad, this laptop is rally nice. i have it hoked up to my flatscreen tv via an hdmi cable. the screen form factor is an exact match. i lov that you dont have to shut this down every time. the 2 second wake up from standb mode is real. the sound lacks bass but is good enough. it's not dolby. windows 8 takes some getting used o and is no that all bad as the reviews make it. just hit winkey+D to switch to flat screen mode. it's just the keboard tha really sucks :-(
Very Good Value Laptop2/1/2013
I researched budget laptops for several months before deciding on this laptop. ASUS is a very good and trusted brand and the specifications of this laptop are great for the price point. The specifications did however state a backlit keyboard and there is none on this model. The keyboard is also very finicky and takes quite a while to adjust to it without tons of misspelled words. The track pad can also be touched when tyoping and thus moving the curor and having you type where you did not want. Not good if you are a touch typist. Overall I do believe this is a very good laptop for it's price point!
No Backlit keyboard as stated!!1/29/2013
Purchased this laptop because of the backlit keyboard. After it arrived I find out it has no such feature.
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. The shipment was fast and hassel free.
