    Incredible Laptop! This laptop is what ASUS was for the tablet market when they released Nexus 7 with google!!! I am just so pleased with this ASUS laptop. I have now been playing and messing with the new laptop as well as the new to me Windows 8 which overall is not that bad once you get the hang of it. As for the laptop I did my studying before jumping in and buying a decent priced laptop. I decided to go with this laptop due to the price, specs, and having dealt with ASUS with my Nexus 7 which everyone knows was incredible for the price. I was shopping around for a few days before making my mind up on this laptop. I am very pleased with this purchase. I tried a few games already just to see how well the laptop can run the games right out the box, and I am pleased. Far Cry 3 runs great, as do a few other PC games I tried out. Just please keep in mind this laptop is not made for gaming so do not expect some of the newer games coming out to run on maximum settings. The speed of this little bad boy is incredible. The pc has yet to really heat up or make a noise this is after hours of use at a time. The laptop seems really well built. The keyboard is very responsive. Also I was very surprised at how great the screen looks for being only 720p, plus very please at how loud the speakers are for this very overall well put together laptop. The laptop also looks and feels great. I would not try it but I am sure it can take a fall or two. I paid 450 and I honestly if I had hands on prior I would not have mind paying a few hundred more, yes it is really that good. Anyways if your looking for a great laptop for a great price you have one here. Enjoy!

    If you can find a higher quality, more feature laden laptop today, buy it. This is an amazing machine for the $$. There are others on the market right now for twice the price and more that dont have as much hardware as this thing does, plus its an Asus, an absolute top tier brand. It looks and feels like you could drop it off of a 30 story building and it would just laugh it off. Mind you, it isnt really attractive or lightweight and has a pretty big footprint, but its as solid a machine as you can buy. IF they were charging even $200 more it would be a bargain.

    Great, but very weak The laptop itself is a truly amazing product. I was fortunate enough to purchase this laptop whilst it was slightly cheaper, but even now the ASUS K55 is an incredible “bang for your buck.” There are absolutely no regrets towards purchasing this laptop. Unfortunately I have come across a small issue regarding the screen, and have no clue how it was conceived. This laptop has been under my care for at least two weeks, all the while furiously curb-stomping any task I have thrown at it, but for some reason the screen has started to fail on me. The top, roughly 1/6th, portion of the screen is completely incapable of anything other than emitting a funky grey or yellow color. I don’t know if I had placed the laptop in my bag incorrectly as I was packing during the morning, or if some other nuance managed to take advantage of me. Also, even though I would LOVE to have this replaced, apparently it is not an applicable option.So with that, I will warn all possible customers to be as careful as possible with the screen. Other than that, this laptop is a magnificent product for whatever you may need it for. It is incredibly fast and responsive, and will dominate any task you throw at it. If I were able to get a replacement, and not have to settle for a refund, (or the screen itself didn’t give out on me) this laptop would definitely have had received five stars.TL;DRPros:Fast and Responsive A8 quadcore processorVery suitable large hard driveHard drive is also double partitioned (C: & D:)Beautiful 720p graphicsBattery life is decentCons:The screen is either very weak, or mine was defectiveThe mouse pad takes a little getting used toOther:Windows 8 is confusing at first, but I don’t see any of the ‘major’ issues others come up with. Personally, I can dwell in the desktop portion of the OS and go back to the home screen whenever I want to look at stock or other feeds.
