      I`ve been very leery to get Asus laptop : dubious sounded , not much promising , some four years ago, nobody heard of, PC manufacture name . But i needed light & tough , reasonably fast ( 2.3 /2.4 GHz Intel dual core ) , not expensive (not over one thousand ) laptop. The one : u break it - u forget it. When B&H salesperson told that Asus is the only manufacture who offers one year Accidental Damage warranty , i took a plunge. Glad i did ! So, to the point :1. It`s cheap. 2. It`s reasonably fast and works - i run Ableton Live with Keyboards on it - no problem ,acceptable latency ( with audio interface of course ) . And i got two Apple desktops ( iMac & MacMini, both Intel i-5 core ) to compare... . 3. Asus has very interesting " Instant On" feature installed -when u start-up/ boot PC - it IS instantly/ really very fast/ no kidding "On". 4. Display colour is good. 5. Seems to be built rather strong. 5. Asus customer support is there for you ( contrary/ in stark contrast to Microsoft support) . Checked both.... Now downsides : Windows 8 - well... it could be much worse: Windows 9 or Windows 10...just get it before!! Windows get there....Things to note: 1. Watch U-tube vids to learn UI of Win8- thats not hard at all...2. Microsoft forcefully impose on you Microsoft Account - accept it , and every single time u start up ur Win 8 PC - you have no choice but enter ur password to log-in on ur own home laptop. If u don`t have Microsoft Account - u CAN NOT !! use most PC programs. Just get over it.3. Under new Win8 User interface u`ll find dear old , cheap & clunky familiar Windows interface...4. This nice laptop has just two USB ports- so get the D-Link USB hub- D-Link is mighty & stable .Sum up: Really fast laptop , works very good, light & slim , Solid built, rather cheap. Love it very much. Use it no less than my Apple desktops . Get It. You `ll like it.

      Good for the price

      Just for domestic use is ok. It's not a great machine, but for the price is more than good.

        I got this computer for my daughter to take to college. She had been using an old one that was so thick and heavy, and slow. This one is thin, light weight, and fast. She loves it and I love the fact that I was able to get it at a really super price at B&H. Thanks for doing a great job with pricing!

              Comments about X501A-DH31 15.6" Notebook Computer (Pink):

              Screen and keyboard have been good. I bought this to replace a dead ASUS W3V laptop that was more versatile (I could write AND play Half-Life 2 on it and watch movies). For this computer, my main criteria for buying it was that I needed something lightweight and portable that I could use for my writing.I was initially settling for this one, because it has Windows 8, which was annoying on a cousin's computer (different brand). Her Windows 8 locked her out inexplicably, which a lot of people experienced. So far I've avoided that, and I find that the desktop portion of the OS is a lot like Windows 7. The Start Screen contains any programs you install, and I just move them around on the screen where I please. I no longer object to Windows 8.On THIS ASUS I've been able to use Scrivener (no Windows 8 hiccups), my main concern. I can also play some casual adventure games on it (Longest Journey that I downloaded from GOG), and the graphics were just fine. Haven't tried any AAA games, due to the lack of discrete graphics card, but I would prefer that on a deskptop anyway. If your use patterns are similar to my current ones, you'll like this. If you need an optical drive you will have to buy a portable one, but other than that, no problems.

                  Love this notebook, it's neat, light and the color looks very classy. I'm not a big lover of windows 8 but its something getting used too. I also like the fast startup with this computer. It's really quick. The computer doesn't have a cd drive and I haven't missed it once. If you desperately need a cd drive you can get a lightweight external cd drive.

No harm was done in delivery. Came with Windows 8. Clear, affordable, lightweight. Great brand name. Best PC I could have ever purchased.
