    Warning!!!!!!!!!Stay away from Asus computers- It is an ok computer, but their customer service sucks. If your computer crashes, you will pay $59 for recovery disk – then if you are like me, the ones they send you are defective and you will have to pay to ship the defective disk back. Then if they don’t get them within 6 days, they will not refund your $59. Then after a week, you have still have not received any a replacment disk. Try emailing and calling their estore and no one will answer. You are put on hold and then after 2 minutes you are disconnected. Try calling amother department and they tell you your disk have not been mailed out, but they can’t help you. It’d not their department!
