Summary: I got this laptop for my daughter who was starting her illustration/art degree. She has been using it for about 1 1/2 years now and could not be happier. I am blown away by the graphics she is able to create and am very happy we chose the ASUS instead of the MAC. Would buy again for sure!
Summary: I purchased this computer about a year ago and im very satisfied with the quality of the Asus brand. The screen is very clear and high density. The keyboard has great feeling and the retroiluminated setting looks awesome. The fan is very quiet and the computer doesnt gets hot.
Summary: Nice laptop with beautiful design, but worst hard drive quality in all of the laptops I owned in the past 10 years. Hard drive was dead in 6 months and sent it back to the service center. The new hard drive was dead again yesterday (less than 4 months). Very disappointed about ASUS brand.
Summary: Pros: This laptop is very powerful and fast, even without a solid-state drive. The laptop seems solid, isn't too heavy, and looks good. There wasn't as much junk-ware on this machine as there was on almost any other windows machine I've purchased before.
Great product overall, but almost unusable with installed hard drive

Summary: This is a machine as solid as any I've ever owned. It has a solid frame, sleek aluminum lid (fingerprints show like crazy, though), ample USB ports and enough video ports to run 2 external monitors, and a great keyboard.
Summary: Due to space constrictions (having a second kid) I finally had to give up the desktop. The primary uses of this computer are photo editing (adobe lightroom + NIK software, photoshop) and the wife's graphic design (adobe illustrator).
Summary: when it comes down to best gaming laptop under 1000, there are 3: The Acer Aspire V3-771G-9809 Lenovo Y500 series Asus N56VJ-DH71 Acers tend to overheat, but has a slightly better graphics card. Lenovo Y500 series can alot of time go over $1000, asus N56VJ has better specs.
