    Strong & Effective Lightweight! March 9 2010
    By J. Davila - Published on Amazon.com
    Verified Purchase
    I searched around for a long time trying to find a good balanced notebook/laptop. I chose this ASUS because of its look and features--it is a gift for my wife. I wanted to give her something that would be up-to-date and provide her with rich features and elegant look...this K52F-A1 provides that! Though I am the one that set it up after receiving it--I let her unpackage it and do all the basic setup--by updating the Windows 7 Update, she loves this laptop. I could tell by the look in her face she was very pleased with the gift. It has good clean crisp look, the screen has amazing clarity. The keyboard is smooth, easy to use, with all the keys easy to touch. Each key has the appropriate amount of space between each key. My wife commented that it was very light weight, not the heavy laptop that it looks to be. She loved that it is light. After taking the laptop into my hands, I could see why she stated that...it is very light, though it looks heavier because of the sturdy construction. Very sturdy and strong. I like the matted look & feel of the palm rest and the touchpad. This is a great product with rich features (Core i3, 4Gb DDR3, 320Gb HD, etc.) for the price! It doesn't have everything I want in a laptop, but for anyone needing top-of-the-line with a budget, it is an excellent choice. Which is why I give it 5-stars. I am very pleased I chose this and that Amazon.com provided great service; arrived on time, strong packaging, and just all great service. Thanks Amazon.com!ASUS K52F-A1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop (Dark Brown)

    Okay, if it's only what's in the inside that counts Oct. 28 2011
    By Wesley Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
    I purchased an Asus K52F toward the end of November of last year. It was a speedy machine that ran great, for a while. I eventually started having trouble with the WiFi card, but that issue was resolved by installing a fresh driver.

    I was perfectly satisfied with my K52F up until about three weeks ago. Around that time, I noticed a catch in the hinge area whenever I opened it up. Eventually, said hinge broke completely in half and the surrounding plastic fell away.

    A bit of research revealed that the problem of the breaking hinge is a case flaw that several people had suffered from. According to what I unearthed, the Asus warranty covered this due to it being the fault of the company. The Asus warranty required me to send my computer in (on my own dime) to have them evaluate whether or not the damage was caused by me. The fact that I'd attempted to superglue my computer back together made me apprehensive about doing this, so I got in touch with a local store and got a reasonable quote on fixing it. Unfortunately, while in the store's custody, the LCD screen quit working.

    Like I said, the laptop itself ran great; it's just incredibly upsetting that the machine broke after less than a year of use.

    great computer, but... Nov. 5 2010
    By LL in SF - Published on Amazon.com

    Great little computer. Fast, not loaded with too much junk. Happy with everything except the speakers on the computer are beneath it and the volume is low. With that combination, you just can't hear movies or music very well if there is any competing noise at all. I solved the problem by getting little speakers (from Amazon) called Chill Pills, and they inexpensively turned my little ASUS laptop computer into a sound powerhouse. Problem Solved.

    So good I'm looking for another one Jan. 24 2011
    By Apollos2 - Published on Amazon.com
    I've had my ASUS K52F now for about three months now. I have zero complaints. It's really fast, never hangs. I does get a little warm so you don't want to smother it on your lap, keep it on a hard surface. My Gateway desktop just died so I am on the hunt for another ASUS!

    ASUS K52F-A1 15.6-Inch Versatile Entertainment Laptop April 16 2012
    By Jen - Published on Amazon.com
    Verified Purchase
    This is a great laptop. I only have it for a few weeks but so far I love it. The speed is good. It has an I3 core which is perfect for the none gamer but I think it will do if you play minimal games. I love the HDMI port plus the 3 USB ports.
    THE SPEAKER QUALITY IS POOR....VERY POOR. THEY R TOO LOW, that is the only thing I don't like. The battery life is about 2.5 hours, the construction is fairly good. I love the screen display..it is nice and bright. Also, not too much preloaded crap. The price of about $350 is a great buy. I recommend this for students and those who need a good everyday laptop. I watch Netflix and the picture quality is very good..just the sound quality is poor because of the speaker. It is a great buy.. good speed, storage and quality.
