Initially Loved It... Now I Hate It

Sree, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: When I first got this computer back in '10, it was awesome. It didn't last very long on battery power, but hey, that's what you get with a dedicated graphics card and a i7 processor. It did everything flawlessly, it was fast, and it played my games like a champ.

POOR LAPTOP, OK DESKTOP

David D. Clark "DRDOODLES", Amazon
3 December 2011
  • Summary: I bought this 16 months ago for my daughter who was going off to graduate school. Within a couple of weeks she was complaining that it ran very hot and had very poor battery life. A few weeks after that the hard drive began to make funny sounds and then the computer would not boot.

DONALD H., Newegg
3 June 2011
  • Summary: Upgraded HDD for much less than same spec'd model with bigger HDD. like $800 less.
  • Pros: Performance on this notebook is amazing. Everything comes together perfect. No bottlenecks. I have owned this notebook for over a year now and I have no complaints. Plays almost every game I have turned up all the way. Exceptions: Dragon age 2, crisis 2, metro 2033(basically next gen dx11 stuff) ...
  • Cons: small HDD no blue-ray(on MINE!) THE NEW MODEL HAS BLUERAY PLAYER and 500gb HDD (up from 320) so, all cons have been FIXED. the perfect notebook. (price is same even with new features)

Six months in

Anonymous, Newegg

  • Summary: Easy to reformat Stays cool with cooling pad underneath Easy registration which gets you an extra year on your warranty Good experience with all ASUS products for many years
  • Pros: Does exactly what you want it to do Great screen Keyboard feels great Comes with a Windows 7 key HDMI works as you would expect USB 3 is so worth it if you use a thumb drive / external hard drive, etc. Feels sturdy and has a professional look Less than average bloatware installed out of the box
  • Cons: There is bloatware installed out of the box The lights on the side blink when it sleep mode unless you turn that feature off in ASUS settings Runs warm when playing video games

I'm not a hardcore gamer, but I've been able to run everything I've wanted to run smoothly except GTAIV (but performance-wise, that game...

Would Be Great If It Only Worked

Steve W., Newegg
6 May 2011
  • Summary: This computer seemed very promising for my business -- photography and video production -- as well as personally for investment software. Hasn't worked since the day I bought... but I didn't call B&H Video within 15 days, so they're telling me to fix it myself.
  • Pros: Has all the bells and whistles I want -- fast processor; large, fast hard drive; high-speed USB; DVD writer; 8GB of memory (installed by B&H Video); terrific video screen
  • Cons: Won't run videos; listening to audio online freezes computer;
