Summary: I'm a professional software developer and Electrical Engineer. I purchased this box for its speed and because it has two huge exhaust ports on the back to get rid of the internally generated heat. My last machine failed early in my estimation, due to it not having sufficient ventilation. I don't run games on it and I immediately blew away the Windows operating system I was forced to purchase and installed Fedora Linux. Its a few years old now and still going strong.
Summary: I've had this laptop for a while and it has outperformed every other computer I have ever owned. Works great, runs cool, no problems. This has been running strong and fast since the day I opened the box - and I work it hard doing video editing almost every day.
Excerpt: Very fast laptop, designed to fit any gamer needs. Get ready to play your PC Games like never before with built-in bass and the one of the most powerful video cards you can get on a laptop, having a 2 GB video card! It comes with a hard drive of 1 TB which allows to put a lot of music, photos, and movies. Very easy to use. Up to 2 hours using it at the highest performance it can achieve. Excellent support and service from ASUS. 24/7 technical support.
If your thinking about buying one, stop thinking and buy it.

Summary: Everything and more that wat I expected in laptop, while not being a new Ultrabook or super thin, this machine feels like it could control the Deathstar. Powerful processor fully capable of running high end 3D Auto Cad program. Great feeling keyboard. All around excellent computer.
Summary: Love the specs of the ASUS laptop. First-time Asus buyer. My expert cousins recommended it. Screen is awesome, all excellent. The only things I could complain about is that Intel i7 is not all that great. And that the sound, unless I haven't figure out how use the "subwoofer" (located below), is not that great, loud. Oooh, and, yes, the battery doesn't last that long.

Summary: These laptops now have very short product life cycles. Within 6 to 9 months, it seems some new model has replaced the old one. I bought the model in February of 2011 and a newer model came out shortly thereafter. For long term reviews like this one, it makes the review pretty useless since the model is no longer available and hasn't been for a while. Having said this: I have had this laptop for over a year.
