Summary: I have had this laptop for two years now. I bought it as a desktop replacement which I could also carry around locally. The reason I bought this laptop was because it seemed sturdy, and it is, the screen was HD and sharp, keyboard was backlit, came with an intel i7,12 GB of memory and a decent HD.
Summary: Lets see, I ordered this for Christmas, this being my first laptop of this kind I had stars in my eyes, but it would soon probably be my last ASUS purchase. Within a few months of using it, mostly for old PC games the screen died, just refused to respond to any sort of input.
Summary: As this series of laptop ages, it is coming to light that the DC jack (where the power cord enters the computer) has a serious design flaw. The DC jack pin (the part of the jack that transfers power from the power cord to the computer) is much too thin and often breaks off within a year.
Summary: This laptop is a great desktop replacement. I haven't found many games I can't play with the graphics maxed out. All of them play on at least High. It's a lot bigger than I thought it was, but I love the fans on the back. They keep it from overheating (as long as they are unblocked..

Summary: I work on a ship, don't have access to regular mail. I got this before heading out to sea, and it broke 2 weeks later. ASUS suggested re-installing windows, which did nothing. Sent it in upon my return, and does ASUS fix it? Oh, they fixed one problem, only to have another the same day.
Summary: bought this for travel and used it for about 6 months when hard drive failed. thought it was still under warranty but ... simple computer with good video but not as durable as a tower. disappointed
Summary: I just wasted two days trying to extend my warranty to find out I couldn't. There are places on the website that say I can extend the warranty within a year of purchase, and others that say within 90 days.
Summary: I purchased this refurbished from Amazon and couldn't help but wonder who would want to give up such a nice laptop. It's got beautiful lines, with that stealth fighter look. And it positively screams when it does work. But it suffers from a video driver issue.
Summary: I have purchased this laptop 5 months ago and I must say that I am rather disappointed with the product. Firstly I have to say that the main reason why I bought this computer was for the fact that it had a "global" warranty.
