ASUS X540SA INTEL PENTIUM N3700 Windows 10, Mountain View, CA, USA

The new reversible USB Type-C port makes connecting devices much easier; and gives you super-fast USB 3.1 Gen 1 speeds of up to 5Gbit/s so you can transfer a 2GB movie to a USB drive in less than 2 seconds! Its compact port design even helps preserve ASUS X540SA thin dimensions.

ASUS X540SA still carries the traditional USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports to ensure compatibility with all your USB devices. ASUS X540SA has additional connectivity options including HDMI and VGA output for external displays, a 3-in-1 SD/SDHC/SDXC card reader, an RJ-45 Ethernet port, and a DVD Super Multi optical disc drive.



My husband ordered 2 of these in January, both for the same purpose - access to the internet, basic use of office suite, nothing fancy. Price point and functionality for what we needed looked good. From the start, both had Wifi connection issues - connecting, getting kicked off, then unable to reconnect to the same connection I was just on, and so on. Having had other devices connected to the same signal, full strength, and both computers having the same issue, did lead me to conclude it was a problem with the computers. And, I see now that some of the other reviews indicate the same.

The one we took to our store, though the spotty Wifi issues are super irritating, is otherwise working fine for our basic needs. The one we kept at home completely died at 4 months. The battery died and will not charge at all. We purchased a replacement charger, hoping that was the issue - it was not. When plugged in to either, the computer shows no indication of trying to charge. Other reviews indicate the same.

So, I'm chalking this up to a 'you get what you pay for' scenario, though at the very least I would expect the cheapest of computers to 1. Hold a charge & 2. Connect to the internet - but I digress. I've had better experience with laptops in the $400-$600 range such that I would definitely say this computer is not worth the couple hundred dollar savings. Still not sure whether I will go through the hassle of having the manufacturer reconcile this, as we are past our return window with Amazon.
