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)
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
Summary: I spent months searching for the perfect laptop. One that was portable, capable of gaming and cost under $1000.I did a lot of research before considering the ASUS N61J Series. It turned out that it fit my needs perfectly.
Summary: I purchased this system for the dual purpose of gaming on-the-go, as well as having a mobile software development platform. As a college student, having my own system to tote around is far simpler than having to manage files on flash drives, uploading/downloading files, etc.
Summary: This is the best computer I've ever owned. The sound quality of the speakers is absolutely fantastic. The only issue I have is one with the webcam. I'd recommend buying an external one for it. Everything else though is great. The touch pad has the perfect amount of sensitivity, and it's very fast.
Better than I thought. Fast Boot up and fast performance

Summary: This computer is really great. I did a lot of research on it before I decided to buy it, and this one seemed to fit all the requirement I want. The delivery itself was wonderful, it arrived two days before it said it would, and it is a good looking laptop.
