5 out of 5 eggsExactly as advertised + Surprise

Pros: Exactly as advertised! Same as the G51JX-A1 only $200 cheaper and without 2gb of ram or the mouse and backpack. As others have reported, I opened mine to find 4gb of DDR3 1333 MHz!! Extremely fast, I play Everquest 2 and was able to crank up the graphics to max and play easily. The laptop is slightly larger than a "big" work laptop. The size makes it appear to be heavy but in reality it is very light for its size. The laptop does make a funny explosion noise with animation when it first boots up. This is a pure gamers machine. I did a ton of research when buying this laptop and this is by far the best bang for the buck and I have not been dissappointed at all.

Cons: The mouse touch pad is too close to the front edge of the laptop. I like to lie down with the laptop on my stomach while watching TV. Without a center mouse stick and the touch pad so low it makes it slightly hard to use. The exhaust fan on the right back side gets very very hot!

Other Thoughts: The laptop comes with a ton of software pre-installed. Surprisingly, most of the software was actually written by ASUS and is useless.

5 out of 5 eggsDon't compromise

Pros: HDMI, eSATA, 500g 7200rpm hardrive, KILLER screen resolution, GTS 360, backlit keyboard, bluetooth, digital sound, gigabit LAN, must I go on...

Plays L4D2 on the highest settings flawlessly!

Cons: It does get pretty dang warm, but that comes as no surprise...they do a pretty good job of directing it to the side so you don't get to. warm with it on your lap. Battery life is poor obviously, but no surprises there. FYI the smartlogon app is essentially useless...

Other Thoughts: My system also came with DDR3 1333 ram. The laptop does come with bluetooth, which I didn't see listed in the specs. If anyone knows of a way to restore the factory recovery partition let me know (I'd like to nuke it but to my knowledge its non-recoverable).

And someone was complaining about it not having S-Video...are you serious?!? I'm sorry they can't tailor a laptop to your specific needs, but it does have both analog (VGA port) and digital (HDMI). Get some new hardware or a vga converter and quit complaining!

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing laptop

Pros: HDMI, extremely quite, GTS 360M!!!, VGA, eSATA, 802.11bgn, Bluetooth, 500GB HDD (@ 7200RPM)...
I did not believe my eyes when I open it and found 4 GB DDR3 10600S (1333 MHz). It’s true. I don’t know if it’s a mistake, but if you buy one now, odds are you will too get yours with 1333s on it. This is a pretty good laptop and very fast. I do not plan to use it for gaming, but I’m pretty sure it can handle anything you throw at it. When you turn it on you will hear and see the minor boom on the screen (kind of cool) before the bios kicks in. Windows Experience Index rates it at:
Processor 6.9
Memory 5.9
Graphics 6.8
Gaming graphics 6.8
HDD 5.9
...not bad for a laptop!

Cons: Speakers are kind of average, not like we are expecting surround sound from a laptop... forget the speakers and buy yourself a good set or some headphones. There is no second bay for a secondary hard drive! Read the manual (not sure if its a con... maybe it its, now that i think about it its is! i want a second bay for a hard drive!) the exhaust on the left gets HOT!, but unless you have your hand there for extended periods of time you wont get burned.

Other Thoughts: It does have 4 slots for up to 4 GB of ram, 2 already in use, but you can put another 2 on the remaining slots. Takes about 60 seconds to boot all the way to windows (however I think this can decrease as soon as I remove all the bloatware installed on it). The font can get too small due to the nature of 1080p on 15” displays…extremely small (but pretty cool); you will need magnifying glasses to read and will get some eye aches. The web cam it’s ok, 2 MP it’s enough for your video conferences. The back light keyboard it’s pretty cool, but you have to see the keyboard at an almost-perpendicular angle, otherwise the back light gets annoying when watching it at an angle. The logo and the sides of the back of the screen also have a back light, which makes it look sexy. I researched a lot before deciding on this model, and honestly you get the most bang for your buck with this one, spend another $500 on a brand name and you will get about the same laptop (im looking at you alienware!)

5 out of 5 eggsAMAAAAZING

Pros: GTS 360m
Core i7
4 Gb 1333 MHz RAM
500 Gb Hdd
8-1 card reader

Cons: -Runs hot
-Would be a ton better if it had an s-video port for those of us without HD Tvs
-Nvidia does not have driver support for the 300 series of video cards yet, so you're left w/ the driver from Asus

Other Thoughts: This laptop is an unbelievable deal. Asus has been rated as one of most reliable computer brands despite the amazing prices they put on their products. I was going to buy the G51Vx-x3a but it sold out and was replaced with this one, and I bought this one yesterday so I will be doing another review after receiving it.

As for the Blu-Ray, the DVD drive can be swapped out. These drives tend to be on the expensive side as a warning. The other option is to have an external Blu-ray drive if you don't have the tech-knowledge to put it in yourself.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Laptop

Pros: This laptop is fast! Amazing price for the specs! The screen has incredible resolution and color. Can handle anything I've thrown at it. Graphics are smooth and fluid. It can even handle FSX very well. The build quality and fit and finish are some of the best I have seen. A bit large but light for its size. I've always had a separate Desktop for Performance and a Laptop for portability. This is the first time I can say I don't need a desktop. The design on the back is not as bad as I thought it would be. The backlit keyboard is a plus as well.

Cons: Speaker volume is a bit low and only covers high frequencies. (Works well with headphones).

Lots of games and useless programs that need to be uninstalled.

Other Thoughts: This is laptop is fast and has an amazing screen. I've been building PC's for over 10 years and this is the first time I can do without a desktop.

5 out of 5 eggsFast enough

Pros: This is a gaming laptop. Expect it to be a couple pounds heavier, a little thicker, and have shorter battery life.

Really good price for the following components:
HDMI out, 1080P resolution, Core i7, Intel GTS 360M, 4GB ram, with a nice 7200 RPM HD.

It is pretty fast. I have been able to play Supreme Commander 2 without a slowdown in skirmish mode. Although, they did really optimize the game for consoles so it might not be a huge test.

The back lit keyboard is nice for finding the odd key or for friends who aren't used to it.

Cons: I didn't really need the republic of gamer logos.

Other Thoughts: Haven't tried the HDMI out to TV yet. The lack of a 2nd bay for a solid state drive didn't bother me.

5 out of 5 eggsI love it

Pros: Fast. Great for gaming.

Cons: I use this for business purposes as well as gaming, it would be nice if the case could be a little more toned down.

Other Thoughts: I'm glad I choose this laptop. It has handled everything I've thrown at it with ease. I didn't like how the hard drive was partitioned, I need more OS room and less data room, but that's an easy fix.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Value
Full Backlit Keyboard
Display

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This laptop is great especially considering the price. I haven't played any games on it yet as I got it primary for home/office/travel. Gaming was the secondary reason for purchasing this laptop, otherwise I would have purchased a cheaper laptop. It's nice to know it has the power when you need it. No dead pixels. This is the first laptop purchase for me (I've built 4 desktops) and I'm completely satisfied with Newegg and ASUS.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Machine

Pros: Performance
Price

Cons: Bloatware
Big
"Lid" design looks unprofessional

Other Thoughts: Echoing other reviews;
Very nice system, with specs comparable with most desktops; yet to find anything it cannot handle; games, work, etc.
The bloatware is annoying, but removable, and the size is pushing the limits of what I regard as portable (it's significantly bigger than the machine it's replacing, despite the same screen size), since I travel a lot for work- the power brick is huge!
The design on the top is pretty, but if, like me, you dual use your system for work and play it can be a concern, but a skin handles that easily.
Overall; minor annoyances, but so worth it for the price/performance ratio. I spent about 2-3 months looking at upgrade laptops, and repeatedly came back to this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Desktop Replacement

Pros: - Great value (priced around for quite a long time and could not find a better deal)
- Lots of speed and hard drive space
- Powerful graphics card

Cons: - Heavy
- Heat
- I do not like the positioning of some of the ports. Audio and USB are on the side near the front, right where most users would like to put a mouse pad.

Other Thoughts: I bought this to replace a desktop gaming PC and have yet to find anything that this laptop can not do better than the desktop did. Great deal for a gamer that does not want to be stuck at a desk.
