Summary: Pros: Performance, including gaming, is superb. Cons: Very short battery life (~2.5 hrs max). Heavy and bulky (9 pounds with adapter)!!! Screen quality is mediocre; viewing angles are pretty bad. Sound quality is bad; max volume is very low.
Summary: Just under two years ago, I purchased an ASUS G51. As sharp as it is, I've had trouble with it, with ASUS Customer Service, and with the two-year warranty. At the end of the first year, I called ASUS as the unit was overheating and powering down.
Summary: My story so far... When I dropped my Toshiba Satellite for the third time the motherboard finally cracked (I know, I know). As I was a Senior in College, I really needed a Laptop for class, but I am also a gamer so I wanted something with oomph.
Summary: I got this laptop knowing it wasn't going to be a super fast/gaming machine, but for what I needed it for and for 550 bucks I felt it was just perfect. Plays games just fine, and with the 4 gigs of ram it runs things smoothly. For what I need it for it has been perfect so far.
Summary: I bought one of these laptops from Tiger Direct about a year ago, refurbished, for college. Not only did I want a relatively powerful gaming computer, I needed a computer with high enough graphics and processing to preform rendering in my architecture major.
Summary: I purchased mine from Best Buy in late 2009 for $1k. The Mobo died within 2 months. Had to send it to Asus and got a new PC within a couple of weeks. It was kind of a hassle but since then I have not had any major issues but I hear the the mobos on Asus is really a hit or miss.
Summary: Laptop is really nice for the price. Plays at medium to high details every game out there as of 2011. I'm currently playing Duke Nukem Forever on it at max details, while laptop's HDMI output is hooked up to my HD projector while playing. Also, chip and HDD are both upgradable.
Summary: I game a lot, and this is an excellent PC. Plays everything I can think of on ultra settings with nary a stutter. After reading the notebookcheck.com stats, I was expecting a lot less, but after six months I have yet to see anything even remotely approaching poor performance.
Probably The best laptop you can get for this price!
