Summary: I've had this computer for about a year now, so I can offer a review here without the bias of that initial haze of excitement. Pros: -The technical specs are good. 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...
Summary: I am a 31 yr old female and had a 3 yr old Dell laptop I was looking to replace that was super slow and froze on me constantly. I've had this for a month. I am not computer savvy but needed a laptop for my classic ipod collection, connecting remotely to work, and various things like Microsoft office...
Summary: Initially, I was disappointed when the laptop was having startup problems after a few days upon receiving it. I sent it in for service to ASUS which was a somewhat positive experience-(ASUS has a RMA process with FEDX-shipped to ASUS via FEDX GRND. Got my laptop back in about a week.
Summary: The computer runs smoothly and I highly recommend it. For the price it's a steal. Graphics and sounds are great and it's pretty fast. Also it's very light for the size. Games like Bioshock 2 and F.E.A.R. 2 run smoothly on max settings.
Summary: I've spent many hours researching laptop brands. I wanted a unit that would serve as desktop replacement, and interface with my home theater setup. This unit came equipped with the features I was looking for and at a great price. I bought low when the price was $949.00 on Amazon.
Summary: As an entertainment/all purpose laptop, this one is hard to beat even though it is becoming outdated. Specs are widely available, and for all the number-crunchers there are all sorts of benchmarks available on the internet.
Summary: Ok so I just got this notebook about a week ago and I had it up and running in no time. My first impression of it is that the color is better than described on amazon. Like others said, it's a very dark brown that can easily pass for black.
Summary: This is the first notebook I have purchased so maybe my experience (or lack of) is affecting my review. One of the reasons I got it was to replace my older desktop, which the Asus does a great job at for a notebook.
Summary: I ordered this laptop about a month ago and have been very impressed with both the performance and the look/feel of the notebook. This is my first ASUS after bailing off of the HP bandwagon for the last few years. The slim design and light weight package are very attractive.
