      After 4 years of great work, my old ASUS F8Sn, passed away, so I needed to get a new one, and of course I would stay with ASUS.
      When I did a research about what model I needed, I optioned the Zenbook UX31A or the N56, but when I went at B&H store, I found this model U47A and I realized that it was what I need: LIGHTWEIGHT, with a long Battery Life, enough big HDD, cd/dvd reader/writer, and cheap.
      Now after a month from this purchase, I'm pretty satisfy about this product.
      A big Issue I guess it's about the touchpad, I dasabled it when I'm using the mouse, because when I'm writing something and my palms touch the area around, it's influenced, and it works how I touched it.
      Sometimes it freezes up, but I guess because of my software.

      So I'm pretty satisfy about this purchase, even because I guess there were not other options for my needs.

        Comments about ASUS U47A-RS51 14.1" Notebook Computer (Silver):

        A well balanced laptop good for both work and play applications. My ASUS name recognition goes back to the early days of PC's when they were known for manufacturing great motherboards. I am quite pleased with the backlit keyboard and the mousepad. Not much bloatware with the exception of what I would classify as tools rather than apps. The one month subscription to McAfee is a bit skimpy. The display is not the best at off viewing angles but still acceptable for anything other than heavy graphics. Streams to a big screen TV with HDMI very well. Overall a great value.

            I am a student and use this laptop for writing papers, using excel, watching movies, and using the internet. It is a good basic laptop and covers all of my needs. It is light, pretty to look at, and east to use. I don't know a huge amount about computers but both of my tech savvy brothers recommended this computer for me. It is quiet and doesn't overheat and has a long battery life.

                This unit is a nice size, sound is great compared to any of my previous laptops, and it's response time is fast when surfing from website to website, and the added bonus is the backlit keyboard! My only complaint is the very sensitive nature of the touchpad. I'm sure it is just adjusting to it over time. All in all, nice laptop for a great price!!!

                        The 750gb hard drive and built in memory are excellent if you can get this computer at some sort of discount (to be fair most people will notice the size of the hard drive much more than the amount of memory or speed of the CPU). It has an optical drive for disks, which is very useful for the many times when cds and dvds are nedded. Getting windows7 to recognize external harddrives is not a plug and play operation. Drivers and/or futzing with some settings is required. The keyboard is arranged slightly differently than many other laptops, it will take the fastest typists a little while to adjust.

                          A great notebook for the price. Just about the right size and the back-lit keyboard with an optical drive in a 14" package is a rare combination in a Windows platform. The only complaint so far is the pedestrian performance of the .3Mp web camera. The VGA class camera has major focus problems, especially on moving targets.
                          Overall the U47A is a good buy for the money.

                          After 4 years of great work, my old ASUS F8Sn, passed away, so I needed to get a new one, and of course I would stay with ASUS.
                          When I did a research about what model I needed, I optioned the Zenbook UX31A or the N56, but when I went at B&H store, I found this model U47A and I realized that it was what I need: LIGHTWEIGHT, with a long Battery Life, enough big HDD, cd/dvd reader/writer, and cheap.
                          Now after a month from this purchase, I'm pretty satisfy about this product.
                          A big Issue I guess it's about the touchpad, I dasabled it when I'm using the mouse, because when I'm writing something and my palms touch the area around, it's influenced, and it works how I touched it.
                          Sometimes it freezes up, but I guess because of my software.

                          So I'm pretty satisfy about this purchase, even because I guess there were not other options for my needs.

                              I got two of these for my use and a friend. So far everything seems Ok except the touch pad. It is VERY sensitive, has some unusual moves, and lacks left and right buttons. You are supposed to push down on the right and left bottom corners. Trouble is, it did not work at first - button would not move. I called customer service and they immeditaly sent me an RMA to return it. I have not returned it yet (that's a lot of trouble) and the pad seems to be loosening up with use. On both of these computers the touch pad buttons were hard to press so a replacement would likely be the same :(

                              Other than that, it seems to be a good computer. Have not connected to my 24" monitor yet because I forgot to get an HDMI to VGA adaptor. Battery life seems to be good. Screen is very thin, so I hope it is not also flimsy.
