The area around the hinges is weak and breaks easily. Lots of complaints frm previous sale. Also problem with the touchpad hanging and not responsive.

Deals like this depress me because of how "throwaway" these laptops have become.
These companies would rather create mediocre products that break than quality products that last.
And we wonder why the world is an environmental disaster...

Easy solution for the ram but the processor is also a bit weak....but suppose it could be a decent deal for some if they really want the touch screen.

"If you think back say, 20, 25 years ago, a television that was 10 years old was something that could be reused. It could be refurbished and reused. ... They were very heavy, but they were also very robust. But these days, you can go and you can buy yourself a flat-panel television at an electronics retailer. I saw it over the recent Black Friday period and you can buy that flat panel for $150. But in a sense, you get what you pay for. You get a cheap television that maybe will last three years."

"And that kind of phenomenon is increasing. The volume of stuff is increasing, but the volume of good stuff among the stuff, if you will, is declining."

Easy solution. Don't buy it. It's called supply and demand. People (don't blame the company for trying to make money) must be buying these up

I'm not hating on cheap electronics if they last, rather the theme/strategy of computer-makers in particular.

Hur durr.
Missing the point: it's not canned supply and demand when companies prey upon consumers who lack the knowledge or foresight to understand the rate of failure to continually sell products that have been proven to be able to be produced at higher levels of quality.

Here's a review with many comparison of a lower end Acer Spin versus the Asus:
Acer Spin review with Asus [laptopmag.com]

A higher end Acer laptop is currently on sale at Staples on another slick deal so it is a good idea to compare them.

That's how it is these days, to get something at a fairly good price a lot of times there's far too many compromises. In the end you're getting sort of an inferior product. That corporate greed. Even some of the higher end products are built with a few inferior parts... Certain times you may get something worthwhile
