Summary: REBATE PAIN! YOU WILL HAVE A HARD TIME WITH THE REBATE FROM ASUS / 4MYREBATE.COM! Rebate form stated either the invoice/receipt OR packing list was acceptable, I sent in the invoice. Rebate was rejected because I didn't send the packing list! They said I could fax it, which I did the next day.
Summary: Larger than you would expect. Does not come with software to play blu ray disc. it costs an additional $60 to $80 dollars to download software. Only found that out after contacting ASUS directly.
Excerpt: Writing speed was great for blue ray but it didn't work at all for regular DVD and it sometimes caused computer to crash when I tried burning DVD (but never had problems with blue ray burning).
