Jane's Review: Should I buy this product?

Jane's Review

Yes! I recommend this traditional laptop computer based on its brand popularity. Let's go over the reasons why buying this traditional laptop computer now is good, and also things to consider before you decide on this item.

1. ASUS is a known traditional laptop computer brand

ASUS is a fairly popular brand among other traditional laptop computer brands. I found some YouTube videos that talk about this product, which means this is a widely known product/brand. I have attached the videos/links down below, so don't forget to watch and read those!

One thing to be careful about here is that I'm not verifying if this product's maker is a household name or not. This section is more focused on whether this is proven enough by its consumers, whether people actually love this product.

2. This traditional laptop computer has positive reviews on the internet

online world

Some people have good experience with a product, while some are unlucky and get a defected item, they have to go through the whole process of returning them. The point is, people have different experiences about a product due to various reasons, so don't read too much into one good or bad review. With that said, reading multiple reviews can help you picture how good/bad the product generally is.

This traditional laptop computer has positive reviews on the internet, and based on current trends, it's likely that people will like this traditional laptop computer more a week later. I summarized what fans and haters say about this product below, so don't forget to read those to paint the whole picture!

3. The price might go up, so buy now if you need this!

Price is one of the most important factors in making a purchase decision. I analyzed the price of this product in three parts: its recent price change, when it was most expensive/cheapest, its price volatility, and some price prediction I made, just in case if you want to wait.

First off, let's talk about its recent price change. This product became unavailable to purchase, so it's hard to tell. However, the last price change observed between November 11, 2019 and March 9, 2020 was a 0.00% price increase. Since this product is currently unavailable, you might want to check out the list of similar products I gathered down below! Next, we need to look at its highest price and lowest price. Historically, the highest price point for this traditional laptop computer was $1499.90, and the lowest price point was $770.00. The current price is lower than it has ever been. This is definitely the best time to purchase! What about its availability and price volatility? This is another aspect we have to dig into before buying something. This product is currently unavailable so I can't really endorce its availability, sadly. If you plan to repeatly purchase this item, I would suggest looking for a similar product or a seller who has this product with better availability! In addition, I've seen a small amount of price movement with this product. From what I've seen, the price is likely to move up or down by an average of 4.20% at a time Considering all this, will the price go up or down in a week? I know it's currently unavailable, but if this becomes available a week later, based on past price points, I expect the price to be much higher a week from now. It might be best to purchase as soon as possible before the price becomes too high.

4. Manufacturer has generally positive reviews on their other products

The maker of a product is another factor you want to definitely consider before you buy anything. What if there is a piece missing, or has some defect in the product? Whatever you buy online, this is a likely chance. But don't worry too much, because Amazon has an amazing 30-day refund policy (Amazon❤️). But still, you want to make sure if the manufacturer or the seller has been helpful in resolving this kind of problem and/or has been helpful to its customers about general product inquiries. The manufacturer of this product, ASUS Computers, has generally positive reviews on the internet. It's generally a good sign if the manufacturer has good reviews overall. If your purchase decision heavily involves how well they make their products and treat their customers, and if you like this product, I'd go with this product!

5. There are other options, but don't look further if you're looking for a product with best reviews

image/svg+xml Search ASUS Other similar brands: HP Dell

I found 3 brands that have similar products like this one: HP, Dell, and the same brand as this product. If you're looking for a cheaper alternative, you might want to look at a similar product from HP. if you're looking for a traditional laptop computer with best reviews, you're looking at that product! Within its category, it has received the highest customer satisfaction score. If your primary concern is whether the product is popular and well known, a similar product from HP I linked below is a better option.

What Fans Are Saying
What Fans Are Saying
I've owned this laptop for about 3 years now.
What Fans Are Saying
I first got it to play WoW, and run AutoCAD from time-to-time.
What Fans Are Saying
When I changed jobs a year and a half ago, this laptop became my everyday, full-time work computer.
What Neutrals Are Saying
What Neutrals Are Saying
It does not get very bright (and with a mix of a tn monitor, the viewing angles are even worse) and about 1 year into using it the monitor sometimes has half of it become slightly off color, but is very noticeable when watching videos/gaming.
What Neutrals Are Saying
It runs pretty fast and has a decent battery even after a few years.
What Neutrals Are Saying
But to be fair, I've put this laptop through hell and back, and, once again, still works like a charm, both for productivity and also for games.
