Asus Laptops

by tim_1138 / March 27, 2010 1:18 AM PDT

Can anyone help me differentiate between all of the Asus laptops... UL, UX, A1, A2... they are all around the same price $600-800 and seems to have about the same specs. Are some of them newer models, or are they all slightly different?

I'm looking for something 4lbs or less, and with a screen between 13-15. Cnet result show 10 such laptops, and they are seem very similar. Can anyone decipher?

If the people that are selling you these machines either won't talk to you or are unknowing about these, WHY would you consider these machines?

Imagine if you had a real issue after you bought it. This paints a dim picture of how owners will be answered later.

That's a good point. I'm looking on Amazon. My dilema is this, Best Buy only ever has six or seven laptops, and one from each brand. The closest one is an hour away from me anyway. Small town, no computer stores, so I have somwhat of a problem. I was just wondering if anyone had one of these asus models

In that case, use the phone.

There are many 800 numbers and keep in mind my point above. If they won't take the time to learn about the product they sell, it is unlikely they support the product and don't deserve the sale.

However I do like the models with the 2 year warranty (about time) and some have USB 3.0 which takes the edge off the feeling you bought an out of date machine.

Having said that, I can't find any words about use. We know gamers and laptops are a bad mix. But I do like any of the new laptops with i3 or better CPUs and if it's a laptop, 16 or less inch displays.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
