Resolved Question

Samsung or Asus. What to choose?

by karenlouie1989 / June 19, 2013 10:10 PM PDT

Hi!
I'm looking at getting a new laptop. There are hundreds of them available to buy. I am currently trying to decide between Samsung(QX411-W01UB) or Asus (U56E-BBL6). Maybe someone has one of these. I would be thankful for any help.

Given only this much detail.

Why not go by what matters to you? Both are OK laptops so maybe a criteria needs to be revealed such as PRICE? If that's it, an easy decision.

I don't understand all the features of products, that's why I wanted to know whether one is not worse than the other.

Why buy something you don't understand?

There's a chance you pay for something you don't need.

Can you be more detailed about your uncertainties?

If I don't understand all the features, it doesn't mean I shouldn't buy a laptop. I just need advice. That's all.

Ask a little more.

If the seller isn't answering your questions, that's one thing. Don't let them off the hook.

Here you can get better answers if you share what the concern is. Let's say you are buying a tool. You wouldn't buy said tool unless you understood its use so same here. Tell a little more and ask the big questions. EXAMPLE? "Will this or that laptop play WoW?"

I think you were right that the main criteria here is a price. I'll probably choose Asus. Thinking about buying it here http://chicago.localmart.com/. The thing is I don't need something unusual, office, google and some playing apps.
