Questions & Answers

Features we love

User friendly with amazing features

Asus produce user-friendly, high quality devices for you and your family to enjoy. From nifty tablets and slim laptops, to ultra-performance gaming desktop PCs. Asus combine beautiful design with intelligent features to bring you the best products.

Faster more productive Windows

Windows 10 is the new operating system by Microsoft. It’s packed with brilliant features to help you be more productive, and have more fun! Its super-safe thanks to built-in security and updates, and, if your device is compatible, you can log-in with facial recognition thanks to Windows Hello. Windows 10 also as a speedy Microsoft web browser, and Cortana – your personal virtual assistant.

Your personal virtual assistant

Cortana is designed to make your life easier. She can perform all sorts of tasks like managing your calendar, tracking parcels, finding files and even telling jokes! Simply type your question or request directly into your laptop or just ask Cortana to help you. Voice activation technology means that Cortana recognises your voice and responds to you right away – she’ll even keep you up to date with your interests, favourite places and the weather.

Work smarter easier and faster

Microsoft Office is essential software that doesn’t come loaded on your new device. It provides you with all the tools you need to get your work done. Whether it’s Excel, Word or OneNote, each Office application is packed with easy-to-use features to optimise your time and creativity. Choose from Office 365 Personal or 365 Home, which are subscription services that can be installed across a range of devices. There’s also Home and Student 2016, which is a one-time purchase. Impress, create and inspire with Microsoft Office.

Stay safe online with an antivirus package

Antivirus software is essential. It doesn’t come loaded on your device, so you’ll need to buy it separately. It will protect your desktop, laptop or smartphone from nasty online threats like malware, spyware and viruses – which can all affect your computer in different ways. Antiviruses help keep your details and transactions safe too – so you can shop online with confidence. What’s more, many come with parental controls which are perfect if your family like to browse the internet. We stock both McAfee and Norton packages, so you can choose the perfect antivirus for you.

For the price, this laptop is amazing! Super fast and reliable. Surprisingly lightweight considering the specs. I will say that to have a such an afforable laptop with a processor this powerful - a lot of the time this means using lesser quality components (Ram, HDD etc).. It's not a fact that this is the case but it's something to look out for! The build quality is also something that's usually compromised to get better components and this model feels a little like that to me. A bit plasticky (I'm going to try my best not to drop it!) Overall an absolute bargain! The 'Remote Control' function is pretty cool and useful (using your phone to control the laptop). As far as gaming is concerned I tried two games.. Skyrim (2011) runs fine but Dead Isalnd Riptide (2013) was dire even on lowest quality settings. It loaded and you could function but it was way too laggy and jittery.

Pros: Affordable, Fast, Lightweight/Portable, Reliable, Remote Access from Phone Cons: Cheap build quality

Fast and Efficiant great for price!!!!!!!

This is a fast reliable laptop amazing for its price great for gaming and work is able to run Lots of applications at the same time.

Pros: Fast Reliable, Gaming and Work, Slim Cons: Heavy
