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:

Overall...is a good basic machine. I did not need anything big...just enough to do internet and word. This has worked well so far. I do like that it is very light weight! I also like the lightly textured plastic. I do think the mouse tracking pad is finicky. At times it works well...other times it is slow to respond and I am forced to go and get my mouse. Overall, am happy with it.

Great Laptop !

Comments about Asus X551MA 15.6'' Laptop:

What a great laptop for the price !! I purchased this as a gift for my wife. She does a lot of comarison shopping for vacations and making reservations. It has all the features that we need and then some. We will use it to keep our
I-Tunes synced as well. I can't get over how fast it boots up. We dont have the fastest connection, but for what we use it for, it is plenty fast. The screen is ample for us as well. The improvements on the keyboard took some getting used too, because you just barely touch the keys. Although it does not have the tough screen ( it didn't want that anyway). Oh, and I almost forgot to tell you how light it is. What a good buy for the price. I also bought the 2 year warrantee. We are very happy with our purchase! The store employees were top notch as well !!!

Horrible computer!

By Phil

Comments about Asus X551MA 15.6'' Laptop:

I had an Asus for about 9 months (per a former coworker in the IT Dept's advice). I moved to a new state with a new job and it has been horrible. I bought it quickly so he could transfer everything from my Dell that died. He told me something was wrong with the keyboard, but i was so busy, i never had time to take it out of the box and use it for awhile. It was too late to return to the online store i bought it from when i finally opened it up and used it. When typing, the curser would pop all over the page.....in the middle of the last paragraph, in the to or from spot and others. I thought it was just a lemon and bought another one (unfortunately). This one has a keyboard problem too. The enter buttons don't work half the time. It also dies in 10 minutes with no electric power. I need to bring it back and try another manufacturer.

Handy Laptop for the Unbeatable Price

By BigMika

Verified Buyer

Comments about Asus X551MA 15.6'' Laptop:

This laptop is very inexpensive but it works remarkable. I rarely have to charge this laptop and I use it for more than 4 hrs. everyday. In addition, the internet is very fast despite it only having an Intel processor. I am very impressed with this laptop.
