A bit of fiddling but going great,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Asus V550CA-CJ104H 15.6-inch Touchscreen Notebook (Intel Corei3-2365U 1.4GHz, 6GB RAM, 1TB HDD 5400rpm, Intel HD Graphics 3000, Integrated Webcam, Windows 8 Home) (Personal Computers)
I was a bit unsure when I got this laptop going out of the box. Getting used to windows 8 was the first thing but after a day or two. It started to become easier so stick with it. The first issue was the unit seemed to run slow! So , first thing was to update windows 8 to v 8.1 which took a bit of time. This seemed to improve things. But still not right in my view. I then removed mc afee ( windows 8 has windows defender included which is free) . This made a big difference performance wise. Next I used the intel update manager to update drivers, especially the wireless driver. This brought the broadband use right up to where it should be. So now everything going fine. The touchscreen needs a bit of getting used to and responds well, but no where near an ipad.
So all in all good laptop for the price. But be prepared for some tweaking to get it really going.
