Q & As

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Superb laptop but get it with Full HD Screen I'm writing this review to balance the crazy negative ones on the John Lewis's website. I've bought the Asus N550LF which is the same as the N550JK but with the FULL high definition screen. It is unbelievable good! The screen is bright and crisp, the keyboard is a joy to use, it's unbelievable fast and quiet. I'd previously bought a Lenovo but it was so bad that I returned it. Do yourself a favour and splash out on the N550LF if they get it back in stock, it's worth every penny. My laptop stays 95% of it's time in my office but if you intend to carry your around more than I do then the dimensions & weight of this unit may be too much for you. 07 January 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by This Laptop is exactly what I wanted After alot of consideration and research I finally settled on this laptop. I wanted it for light gaming and also some graphics and CAD work. This laptop is ideally suited. John Lewis was competitive on price and their pick-up option was just really convenient. Laptop is really powerful and extremely well made, easy set up and a joy to use. Highly recommended 17 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by A GOOD LAPTOP, LET DOWN BY CONNECTIVITY ISSUES I purchased the NJ550 as a desktop replacement. All the reviews i saw were positive and the model appeared in a handful of professional reviews ‘Top 10 of 2014’. However after three weeks use a fault developed with the headphone jack, which stopped working. I got refunded, and hoping this was an isolated incident, went and purchased another NJ550 from John Lewis. To my dismay the same thing happened, and again another refund from John Lewis. I can only think that this is a design fault with this model, but it has put me off buying another Asus laptop. A real shame as overall the build quality and spec are very good considering the retail price. 09 December 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Very disappointed No reflection on the actual laptop but I bought this and as soon as I opened the box I knew something was wrong. The disc drive seemed damaged and then when I opened it there was a random CD inside! It was clearly not part of the set up. It had scribbled Chinese writing on it and was very scratched. All I can summise is that this was a re-conditioned laptop - not new. If so this is very concerning. JL has promised to replace but there was not much of a sorry and the first person I spoke to said I had no chance of a refund! Very disappointing John Lewis, 07 November 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by Fault lies with JL not Laptop Please be aware that the display is NOT 1920 x 1080 but is 1366 x 768. This 'small' error has so far wasted 6 hours of my time from collecting the laptop, discovering the error, proving to myself that I'm not mistaken and writing to JL. It is sure to waste more of my time as I now have to return the laptop to get my money back....and I'll be back at square one without a laptop..... John Lewis please correct the laptop description so that no-one else has their time wasted. Now to return it and find another laptop...what fun! Apart from the display not being what I wanted it is a very nice laptop. 01 September 2014
