Summary: Pros: -reasonably thin and light. Looks cool from the top -reasonable speed for its specs -killer battery life--this is huge! We use it unplugged most of the time--if we charge it every night, we rarely use it enough to need to charge it again during the day.
Summary: While I had never purchased an ASUS product before, I decided to give this laptop a chance after comparing it to several other models by more established companies (Toshiba, Sony, HP, etc). When the laptop was on sale, it was a good deal and still is not a bad price currently.
Summary: Pros -Battery life, easily lasts 7 hours. Bring it to school and use it all day, don't even bother bringing the power supply with me. -Weight, very light, lighter than most of my text books -Looks. The brushed steel look on the black cover is very attractive.
Summary: Spent about 4 months shopping and comparing laptops. Have a 5 yr old Dell Dimension laptop and it was time for a new one. I use a laptop for photo editing, word processing, web surfing, and travel with it. This choice came down to this ASUS and the HP Dvt4.
Summary: Although the 11.5 hours of battery life are more like 7/8 hs, the overall experience is positive. I had a problem with the laptop, and apparently i'm not the only one: battery was dead on arrival. I tried replacing the item with amazon but it was out of stock!
Summary: What I was looking for: I set out to find a laptop that was light, decent graphics and screen for gaming and watching HD movies, powerful enough to run video-editing and image-editing software, and a good battery life for times in an international airport where all the power jacks look alien to you...
Summary: Like other reviewers, I do have one small gripe. Something about the way I type causes me to drag the edge of my palm over the top right corner of the touchpad, which means I will be typing and then get some sort of random click or selection on another part of the screen to mess me up.
Summary: I've had this notebook for 2 weeks now. Thought I should give it a thorough test run before leaving a review. The default display is poor, but with proper calibration, it's comparable to other notebooks I've owned (Sony, HP, Compaq) The tactile feedback on keys is also poor, as noted in other...
Summary: I've had this computer for a month now after giving up a MacBook Pro. I was hesitant about Windows 7 but so far so good, no major glitches or gotchas. Pros: Great price, good battery life, doesn't get too hot, Windows selection of software is immense, nice display Cons: No keyboard backlight,...
Summary: I had some problem with the touch pad at first. I adjusted the settings and got rid of most of it. (it was really jittery) It still comes and goes some times, but it's been pretty good mostly. The multitouch scroll is still a little jittery but it's usable.
