Summary: I purchased this computer for its processor and RAM, but the resolution is the feature I am most impressed with. I can read even the tiniest print at low illumination. I never thought I would be influenced by resolution, but truly this computer is a joy to work on.
Summary: It could have had a screen that supported 1080p like the HP Envy I bought prior to this one, but I can live with that, especially considering how much endurance and power this thing has.
Pros: I've always been an Asus fan when it came to gaming machines, and being a gamer I never put too much faith into a laptop to satisfy my needs. However, a laptop has become necessary for me at this stage and I have to say that this laptop in particular has taken me for a wild ride. I purchased an H...
Cons: It does come with a plethora of bloatware, which is sadly common for new laptops. The ethernet port has an annoying clamp on it that will grab onto your ethernet cable to keep it in place, but it also makes it ridiculously frustrating to remove the ethernet cable when you're done (some of mine ha...
Summary: I have been very pleased so far with this laptop. I received it a week ago and have been extremely satisfied. The packaging seemed a bit lacking to me, so I hoped the delivery companies handled it carefully.
Summary: This laptop is my best buy for years. There is nothing I do not like about it. I did pick the ASUS N56VM-AB71, but not the more expencive ASUS N56VZ-DS71 because the N56VM has 7200 rpm Hard Drive and for my need the Nvidia GT 630M 2GB Graphiccard is fine, some more hard core gamers would pick Nvidia...
Summary: I researched laptops in the ~$1K price segment for a couple weeks before settling on this Asus. Yes, it's a poor man's MacBook Pro, but it's a great combo of power & quality for the price. Not much crapware either, IMO. Very pleased with it.
Summary: Build: First of all, the build quality on this machine is EXCELLENT. Having never owned any asus product, I'm seriously impressed at the build quality on this thing. Even though I only paid $899, this feels like a $1500+ machine. The aluminum finish is fantastic and feels really good.
Summary: I asked a few questions about this laptop from other reviewers but could not get an answer... to anyone who needs to know, it does indeed have a backlit keyboard. I got mine this morning and it's simply beautiful, the screen and sound are amazing, typing is a joy and I could not be happier.
Summary: I did plenty of research before buying this laptop & I have not been disappointed yet. The screen is fantastic and the sound with the sub-woofer is far better than most laptops - although not really audiophile quality.
