I just bought a broken laptop in the hope of resurrecting it. However, I am surprised to discover that there seems to be almost no information about it whatsoever on the Internet. The model is an Asus F452e. From the few links I have found, it may be Australia-specific. On the Asus site there is a page with drivers and a fairly useless owner's manual, but that is it. I can find no technical specifications, no reviews, nothing at all about this particular model.

 

I have never encountered this before. Does anyone know anything more about this laptop? Is there any other model that is essentially identical to it that I might have better luck finding information on? Can anyone point me to a site dedicated to this sort of question?

 

[edited title for more clarity]

google search

 

 

 

Exactly what info are you after ?
Some model numbers may have different specs across that model, different CPUs & different internal device chips: NIC, WIFI, Vid etc  (hello HP)
When you get it going, all this is easy enough to find out .

 

If you are after repair manuals, good luck with that, they are often hidden away so Joe Av cant access them.

I'm basically after any info I can find. Every little bit is better than nothing. I have seen the link you posted (thanks for that), it is the only thing I found other than the manual. No other reviews, mentions or anything else, though.

 

I didn't pay too much for it, $35 for no HD and a faulty keyboard. I have seen working ones advertised for $200-$400, so I don't think I will lose on it if it doesn't do what I want.

It is similar to the X452EA in other markets so try that.

 

 

Looks like X450EA is the generic model ID.
