  • Summary: I paid over a grand for the computer and i get this... Also the keyboard is not the best. Go with a dell, their customer service sucks but there computers are not too bad.
  • Pros: Fast, Cool looking, nice screen.
  • Cons: BSOD all the freaking time. By that i mean probably 2 times a week but compared to the other computers I've used, its seems like all the time.

Worked good for 1 week then BSOD!

  • Summary: Other then the thing taking a total dump after a week i really liked the laptop.It looks great and has a lot of great options.Also, I've read reviews that state people getting different RAM speeds.Maybe new egg should look into what the actual speed is.Some say 1066, some say 1333.
  • Pros: Well when i received it after only 1 day off shipping it worked like a champ. I really liked the way it looked and it ran all the games i wanted in nice 1080p. I liked how the vent was on the side, the Ethernet is in the back with the power adapter, and the illuminated keyboard was a great option.
  • Cons: I only had it about a week then today when i started it up it said failed to boot and went straight to BSOD!!! I was bummed. I RMA'd it about an hour later (which YOU have to pay to ship) after calling NE customer service which was helpful.I liked this laptop so i hope i get a working one back. T...

  • Summary: I have been without a Laptop for over a month.. ASUS has not done anything to compensate me for my lost time. They should keep the Lemon, and send me a new one, or the next model up.. I will even pay the difference... I am not happy at all with this lack of service..
  • Pros: I am a Certified Tech, I wanted somthing portable that could still game so i gave this laptop a try. It has nice specs, and looks good.. Great looking screen.
  • Cons: It Overheated and shut down after 5 mins of gaming-- SO I RMA'd it back to ASUS. and got it back a week and a half later. It Shut down after 10-15 minutes of gaming... RMA'd it a second time and am still waiting on the laptop to get back..

  • Summary: As said in my other review good machine when its working. Heat issue is to be expected so wasn't surprised about that. But the BSOD right from teh start.....thats very bad. Its not a hard thing to test ur software when ur making a machine.
  • Pros: Great for the specs and the price....
  • Cons: Well here is the issue...BSOD pretty much from the first turn of the laptop......very bad sign...did some looking around this line seems to have had this issue for awhile. Updated the bios and the drivers back and forth times. Even turned off all graphics it did help slightly but sooner or later ...
