"First time with ASUS, maybe the last."2.5 starson by Bongowit
Pros: Obvious PRO's are the specifications and the cost. For this kind of money you are getting the best components out there.
Cons: Going on my second RMA.
Summary: Was very excited when I brought this laptop home. Not a huge gamer but my last laptop was a "desktop replacement / gaming" laptop as well and it lasted 7 years (and counting) so i figured why not use the same criteria again.
THE ISSUE: The touchpad on my ASUS has not worked properly since I bought it. If I used the laptop for more than 30 minutes the whole right side of the touchpad would stop working. After speaking with ASUS they convinced me to RMA the laptop. So I uninstalled all my personal information and sent it away.
2 weeks later It came back with the tech notes saying "problem duplicated, video card replaced". I don't know the connection between the video card and the touchpad but... whatever. I used it a couple days and transferred all my personal stuff back on it (80 Gbytes btw...) and guess what? The next day it started again. Slightly more intermittant but the problem was back...
Now I am stuck having to RMA it again (and remove my personal information again)...
