Summary: This is my second Asus refurb. My first was the g50VT-X5 which peformed really well. This laptop has great specs and solid construction. It is a good buy. But here's why its not a GREAT buy. First problem is the heat.The main vent which is to the left side just under where you would rest your hand to press the AWSD keys gets really hot! Its so bad I have to place something between my hand and the laptop. Next is the video problem I've been having.
Summary: Basically it comes down to this: This is a gaming beast, however, it has a few basic flaws. Depending on your luck, you may or may not have battery problems but it seems like most refurbished Asus laptops have battery problems such as mine. Also the heat generated is pretty high but manageable.
Summary: theproduct is great and I understand the gripes some people have , mine being the heat vent on the side. the heat vent generates so much that i fear for its components...why put one vent on the side ?thats a poor design choice when the back or bottom would make buying a cooling fan easier? Can anyone who owns this product recommend a cooling tray/pad please?
Summary: I can't believe how well this works. I moved all my programs that bogged down my old laptop to this one, and it runs smoothly, even in battery saving mode. And on high performance, just wow. I ran Mass Effect 2 with every graphics setting maxed out, with no lag, as long as it's plugged into the wall. My old laptop - which is 3 years old and used to cost $1200 new - would have caught fire at the mere thought of running Mass Effect.
Summary: The capabilities of this laptop with comparisons to others of similar price put this one in a league all its own. The only problems I have with it are that it has only 3 hrs of independent battery life and that when you purchase this refurbished, you have no product key code for running microsoft programs that're already installed like MS Office.
Summary: The machine is great. Big screen, really good to either play videogames trough the HDMI Cable or watch movies. The configurations provide a excellent gameplay, all the games I tried worked perfectly and this is very important. The battery don't last too long, but I already was aware of this and I always carry the charger, so this is not a problem for me.
Summary: So I just purchesed this lop top paid for 2 days shipping I so it usually ships with in 2-4 weeks so my guestion is If my delivery estimate: September 9, 2010 - September 14, 2010 Should I accept to get it by September 14 or It could be later then that!???? also Why have no seller contact information!!??
