5 Best ASUS Laptops

For two years in a row, ASUS has earned third place ┬áin our annual┬áreport on the Best & Worst Laptop Brands, which ranks the leading laptop makers based on all of the most important features. We’ve always been fans of the brand, but this year we were particularly impressed with ASUS’ risky-but-innovative designs. For instance, the ZenBook UX51v features a luxe, Retina-like 2880 x 1620-pixel display, and the Transformer Book TX300 crams performance-heavy specs into a hybrid form-factor. Both those machines — and others — made our cut for the best ASUS laptops to buy now.

    Housing the power of a tricked out desktop gaming PC, the G74Sx redefines what portable gaming means. Full resolution gaming and high definition multimedia

    Sure buy an Asus computer. Shortly after the warranty period something is likely to break and be totally unavailable in North America, special order or not. Then you can buy a used part on Ebay from another country as the only remedy (or throw the computer away. Contact them to complain and never get a call back. What a great company.

    Broke down four times in the first three weeks… terrible computer. Complete waste of money, and could not return the product as it had a 15 day policy.

    Hard drive crashed and I lost ALL of my files and pictures…and Asus refused to compensate me in any way.

    Do Not Buy.

    Never buy the asus laptops. Substandard products and parts. Bad service and false warranty promises

  9. russell stewart Says:

    I bought this due to the deal of the price. Since then, I have had to turn it in twice under warranty and still it has more problems than a Ford Pinto! This things is absolute junk! I will never buy anything ASUS or ASUS related ever again. I will furthermore persuade everyone I know from buying and anyone I ever run into from buying anything from this more than ridiculous company and their pathetic products! It always has connection issues, volume issues, etc. etc. etc. PILE OF CRAP!!!

    To be honest I have had nothing but problems with my Asus laptop. Its a year old now but still, there are so many problems not just with the software of windows 8…But with the design of the Asus it’s self. Come on, who puts speakers on the bottom of a computer!?

  11. Jack Jennings Says:

    I just bought my first and last ASUS computer–Nothing but problems

  12. Victor Says:

    I have an Asus U50f that I have had since 2010 or 2011. I use it all the time for gaming and everything and it still works, I have never had a problem with it! The battery on it just failed after 3 years, but I promptly bought another and good as new!

  13. Give a Hoot Says:

    Bought the ASUS laptop in March 2014. Worst computer I’ve ever had. Never works right. Mouse pad only works after uninstall- reinstall which takes an hour at least once a month. Cursors bop around and delete my messages – Don’t know if this message will turn into a mess. AWFUL – buying a different kind. Never ASUS
