Reviews for the Asus F5SL
The Asus F5SI is a reasonable machine considering its price, but it is easily overshadowed by other rival laptops. The keyboard and screen lack build quality and, while performance is acceptable for the price, you will need to add extra memory and a larger hard drive to make the most of this laptop.
