5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent laptop
Initially, I didn't like Windows 8, but this laptop is worth 5 stars and this Windows version is better than first thought.

I have been using for 8 months now and it has been updated to 8.1 by a free download. At first, items appeared and disappeared for apparently no reason, but after changing settings things have since settled down.

If you have...

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent laptop, 18 Mar 2014

This review is from: Asus X551CA 15.6-inch Laptop (Black) - (Intel Celeron 1007U 1.5GHz Processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, DVDSM DL, LAN, WLAN, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8 Home) (Personal Computers)

If you have altered the PC Settings and still find the touchpad too responsive, look for an icon called 'ASUS Smart Gesture' on the taskbar (towards the bottom right.) It looks like a grey square with a white border. Clicking on this will allow you to alter lots of touchpad settings. I didn't realize that the touchpad had different settings for one, two and three fingers before seeing this.

Nice design and runs smoothly, runs football manager well and apps well.
Windows 8 is amazing!

5.0 out of 5 stars Suits the purpose, 18 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)

I needed a laptop that has reasonable battery life, runs quickly, doesn't crash, doesn't need a technowizard to add a printer/scanner and offers value for money.
This Asus ticks the boxes and I don't regret buying it.

1.0 out of 5 stars I really hate Asus. Build quality is very cheap, 28 July 2014

I really hate Asus. Build quality is very cheap. Firstly the plug. Such poor design and when plugged in falls apart on the wall. As the cable element is below the 3 pin plug gravity pulls it apart. I mean Asus can't you even design a plug!!!
As for the cheap plastic computer. Its loaded windows 8 which is completely rubbish and even worse on a non-touch screen. It is very slow processing. Keeps crashing for no good reason. Aerial very poor and fails to pick up Wifi

The USB cables on wrong side for right hand person meaning trailing cables. Its a really nasty cheap unusable laptop.
