5 out of 5 eggsGreat laptop

Pros: This laptop is great, good performance, good price, good warranty, but not good looking!

Cons: Asus, PLEASE stop using the 'Republic of Gamers' wing design on the exterior lcd bezel..... A lot of people want a powerful laptop that they can use for all occasions, and if you bring this laptop to a business meeting or something it looks simply stupid....(I know a few people wanted the laptop but ended up buying something else because of the ROG graphic design)

Just simple pure black or pure white with the ROG emblem, that will make this a perfect laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsIt Flies!

Pros: This laptop flies!

It's the perfect mix of performance and functionality. I chose this over the Asus G73JH-A2 (and I would have happily paid the extra money at the time), mainly because of the extra function on THIS MACHINE! This is an all-purpose machine for me, from gaming to media production to entertainment. The extra ports (SATA, Express Card) are non-existent on the G73JH-A2. All for about $400 less. And the resolution and monitor are sharp. The resolution looks fantastic outputted via HDMI to my Panasonic 54" plasma.

I would highly recommend this laptop to someone who is seeking the functionality the G73JH-A2 lacks. Sure, the other one has more RAM and storage, but the cost of 4 GB of 1333 RAM is approx $120 and an extra 500 gb is even less. Still below cost of the G73JH-A2.

And, good news, this too came with 1333 RAM. Thank you ASUS and Newegg!!!

Cons: 2nd HDD: Now this one bothers me. Not because it doesn't have one, but because not even Newegg knew if it had the extra bay before I bought it. I called Newegg, they couldn't tell me, and directed me to ASUS.
I called ASUS. First guy tells me that he "was looking at it right now, and it has 2 bays and 4 DIMM slots." I doubted after reading a few reviews. Called back. 2nd lady tells me 2 bays, 3 DIMM slots (How?!).

Anyway, the story is this: One HDD bay, 4 DIMM slots. The 2nd Bay is taken up by permanent DIMM slots. They can't be moved to make room, and they can't be taken out without busting the MB. Sorry.

Aesthetics: You've heard it before. It looks silly unless you're a pimply 14 year old that plays WoW all day (hey, and if you are, cool, I'm not judging). It's just that editing a video in front of a client with this is, well, a little awkward...

Wireless Card: Small thing, nothing major, but I wish the card supported 5.4GHz. Nothing huge. Can be replaced.

Other Thoughts: Wonderful laptop!!! Do not hesitate to pull the trigger on this one. For the price, it rocks!

Note to Newegg: You are THEE premier supplier for 90% of us techies. We love you, and your customer service is outstanding (they even reimbursed my shipping because they didn't know an answer to the HDD question). BUT... This whole competitive supply/demand pricing thing is getting your customer base ANGRY! Be flexible. If someone bought something a week ago, and the price dropped $50, give it to them. I promise you, you'll have a customer for life.

5 out of 5 eggsScreaming fast, but a few minor issues

Pros: Fast. No doubt. This thing screams. I don't have a lot of newer games as this stage. Most intensive I have is Bioshock (Yes the original, stop snickering) but it runs like a champ with all of the visuals turned on.

The processor supports virtualization so you can run the "Windows XP Mode" download that Microsoft was kind enough to release for Windows 7 Pro and above.

Having a full separate numberpad on the keyboard is a definite bonus.

Cons: No Win7 Pro option. Had to get the upgrade. Needed it to run the Windows XP Mode add-on to support some legacy applications for work.

Speaker volume is kind of weak. Tough to hear some videos streamed from the web if there is anything else going on in the room. This also seemed to be a problem for previous instances of the G51 series.

A few instances of freezes when resuming from hibernation. Not enough for me to dig into the problem, but they are there.

Other Thoughts: Couldn't find anything with more bang for the buck.

Boots fast.

Separate boot mode into a small linux distro that gets you the bare essential for getting online without booting into a full blown Windows session. It's kind of nice for testing wi-fi availability in an area, but Windows 7 loads so quickly, that it almost seems unnecessary.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for your buck PERIOD

Pros: I received this system a month ago and have used it heavily for office work, gaming, graphics editing, music editing, academic research, movies, all while heavily multitasking. It handles everything I have thrown at it without a stutter. It out-performs custom systems twice its price. It is also built like a tank, because it gets lugged everywhere. You can't beat the warranty (2 years plus 1 year accidental damage). It is also well ventilated. Significant heat comes out of the vent on the left while gaming, but seeing that the system itself is cool (both to the touch and using software gauging), that means the cooling system is well constructed. All the little considerations (long and angled power cord, convenient function and hot keys giving you full control, etc.). The GPU and display kick a**, (the 260 is overkill IMO).I can't wait to use this system for another 5+ years without worrying about any meaningful obsolescence. Came with 1333mhz RAM (thanks!). Once again, ASUS, well done!

Cons: It is hard to find a con for this thing. If it weren't for the above pros, I would have taken off a half star for the shell graphic. I am a 24 year old graduate student. The "Republic of Gamers" design is a little embarassing. It is small though, so I can deal. Small price to pay for performance:cost ratio. The only annoying functional aspect is the low speaker volume, but headphones correct that. Who buys a laptop for a bumping sound system?? The CD-ROM seems a little flimsy, so handle with care. There is a little bloatware, but it is easily removed in about 5 minutes. I still haven't gotten it to recognize the Samba shares on my Ubuntu desktop (now my media server), but that is a Windows 7 issue, not an ASUS issue (hence, no detraction in my rating). Battery life is under 1 hour in high performance mode, but that is to be expected. I get 2 hours when in battery saving mode doing e-mail, word processing, and typing. No computer with high battery life will perform like this.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking for a fast computer capable of demanding multitasking, full 1080p resolution with strong graphics processing to boot (and HDMI output), and a well conceived design, look no further.

5 out of 5 eggsVary Good Laptop

Pros: The Hyper-threaded i720 has 4 physical cores with a total of 8 virtual cores and is fast enough for almost any game. I have yet to max it out on a single game! The GTS 360M GPU runs smooth set to the 1920x1080 screen resolution with games and movies alike. -RAM- the ram specs on the page for this laptop are incorrect and gladly so, it is 4 GB however it is a faster 1333MHz instead of the 1066MHz advertised! the motherboard has 4 DIMM slots only 2 of them are used so for around $100 its a good upgrade to 8 GB of 1333MHz RAM and well worth it. the ability to change the brightness of the back-lit keyboard is a nice feature from off to well bright. the same feature is available with the screen with the exception that you cant turn it off compleatly using the brightness controls.

Cons: there are only 2 cons that i can really think of.
1. the battery life isnt particularly long but what can you expect from a gaming laptop. (I keep it plugged in anyways so not much of a con)
2. NO Blue-ray drive! however this can be rectified by purchasing a external or upgrading the internal Super Muli DVD drive.

Other Thoughts: a blue-ray drive would have been nice with the 1080P screen res but not a big deal breaker.

5 out of 5 eggsStable Workstation

Pros: 1. Brought it as a computational workstation because of its full HD screen, core i7, powerful CUDA graphic, 4 memory slots and full set of ports and Express slot.
2. Upgraded to 12 GB for just $ 220 and it has been running intensive computation on CPU with overclocked Extreme Turbo mode for a week without a glitch.
3. Cooling is very quite and effective and the CPU never reaches over 80 celcius degree even in 100 % CPU load over a few days.
4. Right size and weight to be a mobile workstation.

Cons: 1. LED backlight of LCD is not uniform, darker at right side, but acceptable.
2. LED backlight of keyboard is not uniform, much darker at center.
3. Extra keyboard flex is real. Can be easily fixed by putting plastic or paper sheet underneath the keyboard.
4. Tiny sound from tiny speakers. Speaker always works regardless if earphone is pluged in or not.
5. Camera module is not firmly mounted, seems like using sticker to hold it.
6. Rubberized layer on palm rest may peer off in long-term use.

Other Thoughts: Was considered other mobile workstations. They either cost a lot more, have less powerful graphic or have fewer ports and slots. Quite happy with the decision, though was thinking it a risky one. It is a poor man's workstation.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall - Excellent Laptop

Pros: i7 720QM
Full HD Screen
High Speed RAM (1333 MHz, not 1066)
7200 RPM HDD
GTS360M 1G

Runs super fast / good price

Cons: Definition is very high for a 15.6" screen, sometimes you find it is hard to read (letters are too small)

Battery life / hot

Bought the laptop a month ago, had BSOD once, but after I updated the BIOS and firmware of the HDD, it seems the problem is sloved

Other Thoughts: It is excellent laptop overall, highly recommended. If you have any problems (BSOD, backlit keyboard not working, etc), you should flash the latest BIOS and update the firmware of the seagate HDD to the latest edition (3SDM1). Also, update the graphic driver

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome laptop

Pros: -Awesome display
-Backlit keyboard
-Great touchpad
-Good sound
-10 key
-Fast HDD

Cons: It does run pretty hot, mainly when playing games.

BLOATWARE GALORE!!!
(no biggie, most of it you really do not need)

Slow RAM, still just nit-picking.

Collects fingerprints.

Other Thoughts: This is a great laptop for gamers and students alike, I am very pleased with this purchase. I have not had any of the problems that the other reviewers have talked about, they are just unlucky I guess =]

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing laptop for the price!!!

Pros: The i7 CPU is amazing even though most games don't even use four cores none the less eight. The RAM is average you could definitely think about upgrading it. The screen resolution is amazing and does well with an upgraded Blu Ray drive.

Cons: The worst part about this computer is the 6 CELL BATTERY!!!!!! so i have looked far and wide and the best place I could find to buy a 9 CELL (90-NED1B2100Y) replacement battery.

Other Thoughts: Amazing offer!!!! Newegg is the best online retailer and has amazing support. I mean come on its newegg whats not to like?
