    Asus Laptops - Any good?

    Hi all

    Just wondering what they are like and what their warranty etc is like?

    Note, this isn't for work - a friend of mine was told about www.asuslaptop.co.uk - and wondering about them and that site too.

    We were looking at this one:

    http://uk.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=...88&modelmenu=2

    which on that website is found at http://www.asuslaptop.co.uk/proddeta...AP088XC&cat=17

    Any one know if they are a good deal as the spec is great for that price - unless I've overlooked something [shame it shares the memory, tho the asuslaptop website doesn't indicate it, but the asus site itself does lol]

    Any thoughts?

    She's not after gaming or anything, but its better to have the power for the same money then not I would guess lol

    Asus are made in the same factory as Sony laptops.
    I had one, the spec was good for the price. Better than a dell laptop for sure!

    Yes, well that goes without saying lol

    Interesting about the Sony factory aspect tho...

    What about their support and stuff? How "limited" is the "limited global 2 year warranty" that comes with them? is my thinking.

    Their after sales suck. Big time. Their RTB is a joke and they once had a mission critical laptop of ours (only 2 months old) which required a new touchpad for over 3 months!!
    Nice laptops, rubbish service in my experiance.

    id have to say they are most exellent, they last an age, my dad had his last one for about 5 years and he only got a new one because i couldent be arsed to reinstall windows, it still works. My mates had his for 3 years and all he does is abuse it, its still pretty quick too, i fixed it a while ago, but that was just norton being shite.
    I always feel theres something strange about them in a geeky way... They arnt very "snappy", im not sure, its probably just me...
