Summary: I love the laptop. I've had it for a year and a month, and it does everything I want it to do for a business and entertainment machine. But when they say Asus has terrible customer service, they are NOT kidding. It's not that they're rude. The nice representatives in Jamaica are very friendly.
Summary: I shopped for a computer for several months before purchasing the N61JV. I am completely happy with my purchase. It is blazing fast and has a great keyboard with a beautiful screen. I will run 5+ programs including music creation programs as well as have two dozen windows open and it doesn't blink.
Good Price, AMAZING warranty, and Love in One 16" Package!

Summary: Great laptop! I had an initial problem when I started it up, BUT IT WAS A PERSONAL PROBLEM. The hard drive comes preinstalled with a partition, a big one! I mean they gave me ~ 130 GB for OS & program files and then ~ 370 GB of free space.
Summary: I bought this laptop due to the USB 3.0 port, the eSATA port, and the nice video card. Although the battery does not seem to last as long as claimed by ASUS, the performance is excellent! I use it to power my VMWare Workstation images that I use for developing software.
Summary: I did a lot of research looking for a good deal on a quality laptop. My search finally ended with the ASUS N61JV-X2. I ordered this computer back in April 2010 and have been very happy ever since. It does almost everything you'd want at a descent price.
The most perfect laptop currently available - but not 100% perfect

Summary: So, I'd done a lot of research and saving-up before buying this laptop, the first laptop I'd ever bought at retail. From the experience of countless secondhand budget laptops, I'd come to understand just what makes a perfect laptop, and while this laptop isn't 100% perfect, it's as close to...
Summary: I'm very pleased with this purchase. This is my first Asus product and, so far, it's working very well. Yes, you do get fingerprints on the case, but they're easily cleaned off. The matte interior finish provides a good resting area for the wrists and the keyboard is well spaced and very responsive.
Summary: If you're looking for a system that has a comparable feel and quality grade to the likes of the apple macbook pro you need not search any further. This is the best laptop I've ever purchased in my 3+ years of being a laptop user.
Summary: I picked this up to replace an old laptop and I couldn't be more happy. The i5 processor has at this point handled anything I've thrown at it from heavy resource hog programs like AutoCAD and CATIA while surfing the net and writing reports all without a hiccup. It's a real workhorse.
Summary: A little on the expensive side, but it works great (once most of the unneeded apps have been uninstalled). The keyboard is very standard--not weird shaped enter and shift keys like the picture showed--much to my relief.
