Summary: This is a really good gaming laptop. It's powerful and runs really well. The extras such as back lit keyboard is also very nice. So why did I give it 2 stars? That's just because of 1 critical thing, "YOU CANNOT ACCESS THE CPU WITH OUT TAKING THE COMPUTER APART". Let me explain. Since this is a gaming computer, you will need to repaste every 1/2 -1 year depending on your use.
Summary: She has survived a lot of bumps over the period. One of the best laptops ever. However the screen has started to have a lot of dead pixels in the last 3 months. Might have to replace it. There is a slight boot issue as well. You might want to blow the dust off once in a while. I use it to game lightly. Mostly this is my programming laptop. Does a commendable job except for the weight. My next laptop would definitely be a newer one from this series.
Summary: I was very pleased with my product and I got exactly what I expected. I was told that the keys were worn down and that was exactly the shape that it came in. I was iffy about buying an electronic that was used but am pleased that I made the decision to buy this electronic. It has helped me solve the problem of having a laptop that ran too slowly.
Summary: I have had this computer about a week now and it has already given me some problems. I bought it used so it may not be the computer's fault but already I have found that I can not plug in a USB device into the computer without it crashing and freezing. Also, since the first time that happened, it's performance has decreased a little. This computer uses so much juice to run you have to buy a separate charger with at least 150W before you can use it to its potential.
Summary: I'm shopping for a laptop for myself right now. I got my wife this computer in June, 2011. I didn't know a lot about laptops but I knew a gaming laptop would be a solid performer. She loves it. It is really more of a desktop that she uses on the bar in our kitchen and can easily put away when we have guests over. Plus it puts her in the kitchen where a woman should be! I'm kidding ladies, just kidding. And hey, have you lost weight? You are looking really good!
Summary: I am in love with this laptop. I needed something for my photo, music, and video editing, high end gaming and overall everyday use. I am a long time fan of ASUS and this product is yet another reason why I keep coming back to them. The i7 is fast and I maxed out the RAM...powerhouse. I had to remove the bloatware which was annoying but easy enough where I wouldn't give this product one less star just for that. It's not too heavy and goes in my case easily.
