Summary: Asus is priced well, but they seem to break after warranty. On this one, the sound has died. Is it the sound card? Since Asus does not have real support, who can know. 3 laptops and all have had problems.
Excerpt: Asus advertise a 6 hour battery life. Don't believe this. It is more like a normal 2.5 hour battery life fairly typical for this class of computer. The major selling points are a good processor/graphics cabability for this price and a 2 year international warranty. Connectivity is rather poor (No esata, hdmi, digital audio out), looks and build quality are average.
Pros: 2 year warranty
Cons: battery life is an average 2 . 5 hours NOT advertised 6 hours
