My repairman told me he has already fixed other Asus laptops that had this problem and highly recommends against them.I guess the very excellent performance is the main reason I like this machine; otherwise, it gives me the willies on how long can I expect it to work.Thanks to Amazon.com for the good service they provided getting my purchase delivered in good condition very quickly - as is normal with Amazon.Good luck to anyone who decides on an Asus device; you may get something you like very much but there be more than that.John in Eugene, OregonASUS K501UW-AB78 15.6-inch Full-HD Gaming Laptop (Intel Core i7, GTX 960M, 8GB DDR4, 512GB SSD) Glacier Grey.
If you like to game on a laptop and most of your games are not very strenuous, this laptop will be a joy.
I wasn't sure I'd ever need a gaming laptop, but now that I got this ASUS gaming laptop I have to say it makes gaming so incredibly convenient.It's great not to have to build your own desktop PC gaming rig just to play games.
In fact, think it would be hard to beat this ASUS for a gaming laptop in this price range.I like a laptop for work, but I love a laptop for gaming.
It is been only 7 months and after that I had an issue that it turns off while I am working on it.
Upon closing the laptop one day I heard a cracking sound and when I opened it I realized the left hinge was being separated from the screen and I bought this laptop for college to last me until graduation and i saved up tremendously for it and need it for school as I do computer science and use it daily in programming, ive been an Asus customer over the years and to see a product damaged like this without it being dropped is quite shocking as your products are normally durable and well made.
Had this computer for 6 months then had to send it in for repair.
They said I had to send it in again after 2 wks of having it back after they "so called" fixed it.
I was told that they needed a part and that it took one day to get the part.
