Summary: I like this machine so far. Not sure why I bought it, because my desktop has fit the bill for quite some time. Everything seems to be working. I guess I've got some portability now--probably more computer than I really needed, but at least I won't have to think about buying another one for some...
Summary: I haven't had this laptop long enough to give a thorough review but so far I'm very satisfied (more further down) but first... Amazon service is excellent!! My laptop developed a problem (the 3.0 USB port was seriously malfunctioning) and after consulting with Asus tech support and being told to...
Summary: Several years ago the computer maufactures were moving toward the 802.11a/g/n/ wireless internal cards that supported the dual band capabilities (2.4ghz/5ghz). I have attempted to find a laptop with the assurance that this was the currrent standard, by that I mean 5ghz wireless connectivity.
Summary: Asus N61jV-x2 Hardware: LCD: A lot of people were complaining about the resolution being only 768X1366. But honestly for the daily use ie watching movies, casual gaming, surfing the web, etc.. it is crisp enough. The contrast is good enough.
Summary: This is the third ASUS laptop I've purchased ever since a friend introduced me to the ASUS brand. Before I purchased this laptop, I narrowed my criteria to aim for 1) an iX processor 2) fast video 3) fast hard drive 4) lightweight.
Summary: After doing some research on product reliability as well as studying customer and tech reviews, I felt like this was the laptop for me. Fast processor, good amount of RAM, and plenty of hard drive space were the features I was looking for in a moderately priced laptop.
Summary: This is my first Asus laptop and I like it except for the keyboard. May be I'm spoiled, having used Thinkpads till now but the keyboard in this laptop is too flexible for my taste. Also this the first time I'm using a chicklets-style keyboard.
Summary: I've been seaching for a replacement for both my desktop and laptop. My minimum requirements were: very good processing power, decent screen, nice dedicated GPU, good battery life and sleek design. Hard to find em all together in one single machine. And by searching I mean REALLY searching.
Summary: Update: The computer began having problems rebooting. If I shut it down, then tried to start up right away, the caps lock and num lock lights would come on and stay on. The high speed fan sometimes came on. And it would not boot even to the ASUS logo.
Summary: I bought this for my daughter who has been using the same aging HP desktop for a several years. They like the portability and increased power / speed. They marvel at how quickly it loads programs.
