This computer works great but it has video card issues.
26 April 2011
Summary: This laptop has a great video card which cannot be used to it's full potential because of the laptops thermal characteristics. Simply put, no matter what modern day 3D video game you play the video card will overheat and the frame-rate will drop to a point where playing the game is unbearable. I wouldn't suggest buying this laptop for gaming. Other than that its great.
Summary: Purchased this laptop to play games on after seeing nothing but praise for Asus. This laptop is poorly designed with only one rear vent, and one fan to cool a GTX260m and Intel Q9000. It works for most games such as WoW, and Counter-Strike but when you play something that really stresses it such as Crysis the notebook will overheat and power off. Even if using it on a desk, even with all updated drivers/bios.
