great

Anthony Abelardo "Futuremark2", Amazon
25 February 2011
  • 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.

SWEET!

Italiano S., Newegg

  • Pros: - Very Fast - Fast 1GB GTS 360M video card - Doesn't get too hot I use it for gaming on max settings, hours of video editing, compiling huge programs, basically everything you can throw at it and it eats it right up. Love it.
  • Cons: None

Great Gaming Laptop!

Mohammad B., Newegg
26 December 2010
  • Summary: Fix the screen by following my directions above. Make the system faster by using Win7 in classic mode. Adjust the system for best performance under the advanced control settings. Battery I got around an hour and a half on battery saver.
  • Pros: Great graphics card, great processor, full HD screen (read my cons about this). Great gaming system overall. Games and FPS list: 1. Counterstrike Source - Max - fluent. 2. Team Fortress 2 - Max with no AA - Fluent 60 fps. 3. Fallout New Vegas - High settings, you have to play with them, turn wate...
  • Cons: Screen appears washed out. To fix this, start the nvidia control panel and play with the gamma, contrast, and digital radiance. The screen font letters can also be really small. Wouldn't recommend it for people with bad vision.

Great performance at a good price...

James P., Newegg
8 December 2010
  • Summary: This laptop is a great balance of size & weight to performance. The price is pretty reasonable, too. The fan pushes out a lot of heat, but nothing I wouldn't expect while it's crunching game graphics. Just don't put your cold beverage on the left side...
  • Pros: I am very staisfied with this system. It boots up smoothly and quickly, and it handles my games pretty darn well. It has also done great with my online school work (one would hope so). I especially like the backlit keyboard. I read complaints about the speakers, but I don't blast my audio, and th...
  • Cons: The hard drive is not partitioned in a way that makes a lot of sense for a gaming platform. I have to install my game data on the "data" side, otherwise the OS side is stuffed in no time. Also, the case is attractive, but is a glossy fingerprint magnet. Both minor issues.

Love this laptop!!

Charity H., Newegg
3 December 2010
  • Summary: Overall it seems like there is a lot of cons in the cons section but they are nothing all that crucial except the BSOD, but like I said I had a bad file in my registry. Once I got rid of the bad file I have had no problems.
  • Pros: Fast, quiet, and oh so pretty! I play several different MMORPG's and I can have my graphics set at the highest settings in most. I can run everquest 2 in the highest settings, but sometimes it crashes the game so I run it at almost the highest settings.
  • Cons: This thing gets super hot, get a cooling pad if you buy this! My arm rests on the spec sticker, and it rubbed off the specs of my laptop, but that isn't really that important, I just would like it to be there. Sometimes I get the BSOD but it is not that often, and I found that after I did a regis...

Awesome Notebook at a Great Value

Mark C., Newegg
6 November 2010
  • Summary: I did purchase a couple of items; the MoGo x54 Pro Bluetooth mouse which fits in the express card slot for storage and recharging purposes and I bought a 9 cell battery for $100.00 bucks.
  • Pros: I love this notebook. Very easy to type on, love the backlit keyboard, love the built-in Asus features. The power of this notebook is amazing! I don’t know why, but Newegg should change the description regarding the memory speed because like everyone stated in their reviews, mine did come with 4G...
  • Cons: My only complaint is as many of you mention, it is a finger print magnet so have a micro fiber rag ready to wipe it down from time-to-time.
