Summary: Pros: ----- - Well capable machine indeed, I've played Crysis, Battlefield III, Assassin's Creed Revelation and others with no problems, I also have done some 3D rendering with quite a good performance.
Summary: God this was a great laptop! Glad I got it while it was still available. Though my power cord had some kinda fuse thingy and now the adapter wont worked and I dont know how to get a new one! Can anyone help?
Summary: Came from a Toshiba Satellite I had bought from BestBuy. I returned that for $693.03 as this was my replacement. That had an integrated 4200 mobility and a dual core AMD Phenom II. You can't even play games on that or watch 1080p video smoothly.
Summary: This computer is fast, no doubt about it. All the heat is pushed out of a single side vent on the left side, so unless your running heavy load programs the computer stays pretty cool everywhere else.
Summary: this is by far the best gaming machine i ever had. I play Assassins Creed 2, Crysis 1 & 2 ,COD MOD WF/Black OPS , MOH 2010 , just every new game.. runs just perfect .. :) this thing heats up as obvious its a gaming machine.. you would want to buy a notebook cooler.. i have and it does a great job..
Summary: I purchased this product after reviewing many different manufacturers and models. For the price, this was the most powerful notebook available. At $1150 (after $100 rebate) the competitors were around $1600-$2000. Pros: price, very powerful, solid build, nice design.
Powerful but hot and way too many cut corners. Asus is officially a former greatness.

Summary: This machine is very speedy but gets so hot it is mobile but can't do much heavy lifting while sitting on your lap or you'll burn your leg. I really can't even watch a 720p mkv video with Media Player Classic for 10min with this thing on my lap wearing jeans.
Summary: I just bought this from [...]a week ago. The $100 rebate is what motivated me to buy this particular one. The cost is $1,150 after the rebate. This is an excellent deal for the type of hardware loaded. I tried to create similarly configred laptops on Dell site and Sony site.
