We bought this a week ago. Some highlights:

1) Buying from Staples - the store - was a real pleasure. The man who assisted us was pleasant and not pushy. I forgot how buying things from humans (vs. online, which I do almost exclusively) can be so rewarding.

2) We went in wanting this computer. For $249 we couldn't find something new that was less expensive - anywhere. They had it in stock, and ready to go for us very quickly (after a quick try at an honest upsell ... we SHOULD have spent $100 more on something with a couple more features, but we were all about the cost).

3) This computer is light, easy to get going, and has a great keyboard. I love the keyboard. The touch pad is separate, not integrated into the frame, which I actually find that I prefer (I've had three laptops this year, long story).

4) You get what you pay for. I'm extremely happy with this. It isn't the fastest responder ... I run office 365 on it, and use Publisher. It isn't speedy, but it WORKS! I kind of feel that I have a bit of molasses work horse on my hands. Again, I'm still thrilled with the price, and that makes the circa 2000 speed just fine with me!

5) Do not buy this if you wish to watch video on it. The occasional facebook video will be fine, but if you want to watch Netflix or other streaming video, this isn't for you. Seriously. I can't say that perhaps it wouldn't be faster if it was directly plugged into a modem or something (we are on wifi, which works great and installed super easy with our home system) but for streaming, not so much.

6) I would give it 4.5 stars if I could. Can't give 5 because of the video element - but my husband read that before we bought it so i wasn't surprised by it. If you want to get your kids a computer to do school work, and a computer that won't get them sucked into watching t.v. online (because it's just functional in that way) ... this is a good idea!! ;)

Good luck w/ your purchase.

I needed an extra basic laptop for home and my volunteer work. This seemed like a really good buy and ASUS seemed to have a good review. When I got the laptop home I plugged it in to charge. When I was starting to use it I noticed that even though it was charging the battery was only at 93% and losing charge. I called ASUS support and was told to use the computer on battery until it was under 10%. I did s requested and when I recharged it would only go to 80%. I called technical support and they said I would have to send the entire laptop, at my expense, to ASUS. This was unacceptable and I returned it to Staples. They exchanged the laptop and I was happy.

When I returned home with the exchanged laptop I plugged it in and it would not charge. I investigated and found the wire to the charger was cut. Again, I returned the laptop and Staples replaced the charger. Other than this power problem the laptop seems to be a good buy. I am glad that I purchased this laptop at Staples who was willing to assist with great customer service!

        Comments about Asus X551MA 15.6'' Laptop:

        I returned this 2 days after I brought it home. out of the box it was slower than the one I want to replace. I have bought several asus computers in the past and have always been very satisfied. I guess it is true what they say - 'you get what you pay for'.

        laptop by Asus

        By Nancy Shelvy

        from San Lorenzo

        Verified Buyer

        Comments about Asus X551MA 15.6'' Laptop:

        I purchased the laptop for my son whose previous laptop died. He is extremely pleased with the Asus as it is more up to date than his last one. He had been using his cell to twitter his girl friend who is out of state and now he is more than pleased that he can communicate via his computer.

        I want to commend the sales person who very patiently worked with me as I am not very savvy with the various nuances of computers. All in all it was a very good experience and I will certainly continue to go to Staples for my "office" needs.
