  • A. Microsoft themselves state "Microsoft Office 2003 suites and applications are not compatible with Windows 8." https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/2777626

  • A. Office 2003 will NOT work on any Windows 8 8.1 unit to to certain coding in office that is no longer supported in the newer systems Winodws 8/8.1. I have tried various time to install my copy of 2003 on my Windows 8/8.1 and it will not take. The disk is not defected since I have recently put it on a windows 7 unit I have as well. Might I suggest another program that is with out any cost that can be use in pretty much the same way and is compatible with MS Office documents and so on. Open Office also known more recently as Libre Office Suite which is an open source program compatible with MS Office. But if you prefer MS Office then you will need to either need to purchase a complete license or disk. I use OpenOffice on my Windows 8/8.1 and MS Office 2003 on my Windows 7. I hope this gives you a little more to think about.

I decided to get this Asus, as I didn't want to spend a lot of money. I don't need anything fancy since all I do is surf the web, email, Facebook, etc. I've only had this laptop for a few days, so my review will be based on that. It was very easy to set up. There was no manual with it, but that seems to be the norm these days when you buy a laptop. The speaker is good, and screen is very nice. I like using a wireless mouse, and at first it was frustrating since the touch pad was also enabled, causing the curser to go psycho on me. Usually there is a place in the control panel to disable the touch pad, but not so with this Asus. I did some research, and found out it can be disabled by pushing the fn key located at the bottom of the keyboard along with the f9 key at the top. Presto, the touch pad is disabled. It is a little slower loading pages than the HP laptop I previously had, but for the price, I can live with that. I would never buy another HP though, as I had nothing but problems with it from the beginning. If you're looking for a decent laptop for less money, I think you will be happy with this one.

Great price for a notebook with an optical drive

This model of Asus is a rarity these days for having an optical drive built in. Its performance is sufficient for everyday tasks and surfing the net. I even use it for work and while I'd rather have more RAM for that, it does fine for the money. The fact that the 4gb of RAM is not upgradable is a drawback. Also, the chiclet keyboard is a pain in the tuckus to work with. I got a wireless keyboard that is much better. The plug and play capability of peripherals is a plus in favor of this X551. It's got Windows 8.1 which is more user friendly than Windows 8, and is still eligible for free upgrade to Windows 10. It also comes pre-installed with McAfee which was only a minor pain to get rid of. It's optimized for Bing, but that's also pretty easy to overrule if you want to. Overall it's worth what I paid for it, and the only part of it I really wish Asus had redesigned is that chintzy keyboard.

I recently bought this laptop 3days ago I love it i have many laptops but this is my favorite one i had recommend it to many people .In they have enjoyed it .The computer is very light weight and faster than i expected it too be it say 2.16ghz to 2.40ghz but the pc is way faster topping out at 2.55ghz which is really good for they price .I use my laptop for gaming and everyday use in it handles the gaming aspect of things every well i must say i can run just about everything . The look in fell of the computer doesn't feel cheap too me at all .the plastic is just lighter than older pc . I have gotten a little more than 3:30 of battery life time . The display is nice in bright in clear the keyboard is smooth. All in all the pc is a good value for what you getting . It may take time to get a hang of the new operating system but once you figure that out you good too go

I purchased this after having purchased 2 HP, both of which experienced hard drive failures within days of purchasing each laptop. I needed something that would allow me to work on line and this computer is excellent for that purpose. When turned on, the Windows OS loads very quickly, probably less than 30 seconds. The keyboard is a nice size. Keys are raised up just a bit to make typing easier. Programs load quickly. Wifi is responsive with webpages loading quickly. Videos load quickly and run with no buffering. (of course some of that is dependent upon the ISP connection) Mouse pad and keys are responsive..perhaps a little too sensitive..but that can be adjusted. The keys on the mouse pad are a little stiff. I did purchase a wireless mouse to use when working documents because it is just easier to scroll through a document using the "wheel" on the mouse. Screen is a nice size..15.6 inches. Speaker/sound quality is excellent. HDMI / USB ports/headphone jack are all on one side It has a disk drive but I really have much use for it, but I am sure it's fine. It comes loaded with the usual windows programs. My only concern is the power cord seems kind of flimsy and it would not take much for a pet to chew it in half. But again, power cords can be replaced. Over all, for my purposes of working online, internet searches, social media updates, I am very satisfied with this purchase.

VERY basic laptop

I knew it was going to be a basic laptop for the price but this is REALLY basic. The other reviews that mention it has a cheap feel is correct. When you type, the whole computer rattles...that's the best descriptive sound I could think of. It's not distracting or anything and its a muted rattle, if that makes sense, but definitely conveys a cheap feel. I haven't had this for very long (a few days) but so far it has performed well. Some of the features that I thought was standard across the laptops no matter what the price that this doesn't have are: 1.) The mouse-pad doesn't have the scroll feature where you can rub your finger down the side and it will cause the screen to scroll. 2.) No lights on the laptop other than the power and battery. No num-lock light, no caps light, etc. 3.) The built in camera is low resolution compared to the laptops I've had experience with. Even out 4 year old laptop presents a better picture through the camera. Generally though, it seems to be doing well and all I need is a basic laptop so this should suffice. I'll update this review if something changes that's worth mentioning.
