I actually like the laptop because it is small and lightweight; however, I messed up because I really thought they all came with the CD player, this does not. So beware, unless everything you need to download (software) comes on flashdrive, you are out of luck.
It works fine and has Windows 8 installed on it which I love! The price was excellent for all the things received in the bundle, but I woud have gladly gave up some of those things for the CD/DVD player.
My mother, 50 years old, got this laptop and she knew absolutely nothing about computers (not even how to turn it on or off) but let me tell you, she is a pro with this one! Very, very easy to use. Takes no intelligence at all, it pretty much does everything on its own. Great buy!!!!!
I ordered this in the Laptop bundle special, well worth the price. Can't find it anywhere for the price Walmart offered it at. Laptop works great and with windows 8. Unbelievable!!
It clearly says in the description that it come with office starter(which is a free program but doesn't work with windows 8). It does not. He needs this for school and is the reason we picked this computer. You have to pay to unlock it. I would return it but, I added everything my son will need already including iTunes and all his music. three hours of installation of software so he can start using it out of the box on Christmas.
Product description cut and paste.

I began my first semester of college last fall and needed a good laptop that would fit my low budget and most of my school needs. I purchased this exact one with windows 7 but in the color pink. It's big and fits in my backpack. It's light (2lbs), but does have a little weight to it. I have played Minecraft and LoL on this with low settings, and it plays alright. I don't like the touch pad though, so I bought a wireless mouse. The touch pad feels awkward and too big. Sometimes when I try to right-click the touch pad, it left-clicks instead. I think it's because of how the touch pad was designed.
Pros: Inexpensive, portable, light weight, HDMI
Cons: No DVD drive, feels cheap, touch pad
Wished it had cd-rom, but can't complain. Windows 8 isn't the most user friendly thing, but it isn't that bad.
Bought for daughter for college and she loves it. Does everything she needs to do. Light weight and portable. Very quick shipping. Happy overall with everything.
I didn't realize it had no place for a CD/DVD. As someone who likes to watch movies on the laptop it was a big disappointment. Luckily I read the box before opening and took it back the day after receiving it.
Dear Valued Customer,<br /><br />I do understand your concern having a CD/DVD drive to watch movies, an external USB CD/DVD drive can be connected if needed.

X401dayA Also was a gift and thet wayre so happy to have it. They will use it everyday.
Was not what I expected did not have a CD drive
great notebook, have not had this product long enough to know about any problem. who made it?
Out of the box...very cheaply made! Could not get past the set up screen. Called Asus tech. support, the tech. knew less about the laptop than I did and I had just gotten it. Horrible tech. support!!!! It is so cheap it doesn't even have a cd/dvd drive which I was not aware of since I have never purchased a laptop that didn't have one and I have purchased several. This has to be the cheapest built on the market. Spend the extra money get any thing other than an Asus. It was a waste of money for me, I can not use it since I have no way to load software.
Dear Valued Customer,<br /><br />I apologize for the inconvenience this may have caused you. The laptop was fully-tested with no problem found. It is an entry-level product for budget-conscious users on the go looking for laptop that can do light computing like surfing the internet, emailing and running basic productivity software.

This is a decent computer for the price you pay. It's very basic and does basic tasks great. Surfing the internet, playing videos, email, anything basic like this it works great!
The only thing I don't like about it is the track pad. I think it's too big and the right and left click buttons are not separate. It's too big because when you are resting your hands on the home row keys your palm tends to touch it and move the cursor. The buttons really need to be separate because when you want to click something and since the button is part of the track pad sometimes it moves the cursor and the thing you are clicking on doesn't get clicked.
This is not a computer for any kind of heavy word processing, the key board is not that great at that.
Other than that, it is a great basic computer!
This laptop/notebook, was a nice pickup for 250.00, sure alot of ppl didn't like the fact of no cd player installed ,which is easily upgradeable with an extyernal usb cd drive or heck even a little thinking and u can use use one of your other optical drives out of one of your other comps..
Lets face it folks everything is going cloud and streaming with fast internet and some immediate updating to 8.1 windows update all ur devices with asus updater and it flys..
I work on computers so that is the first thing you shoul do right out of the box,yes the mouse section seems cheap and hard to use,just use a mouse much easier,other thn tht very happy..still figuring out the windows since this is first windows 8 i have had.......good deal
Shuts down while working on one program, key board works 1/3 of the time and it just gets worse from there. PLEASE do not buy this product. I am getting ready to send it back as soon as the UPS truck arrives.
Dear Timmy Georges,<br /><br />Thank you for choosing an ASUS product. I apologize if the system is shutting down while working or running an application or program. Updates are possibly running in the background. We recommend charging the laptop fully before using it. Also, installing all recommended WINDOWS Updates before running any software will improve system stability and performance.
