5 out of 5 eggsAnother Winner from ASUS

Pros: Great Notebook, My second from ASUS, Delivered by NEWEGG.com. 1 GB Turbo-Memory is a real boost at boot-up, 2GB memory is my suggested Min for Vista and the Graphics card, WOW. Overall performance is great. Security chip is nice, but not explained too well.

Cons: Screen resolution should be higher with the graphics card. Finger print reader is cool, but not necessary.

Other Thoughts: ASUS needs to include more information describing components in systems.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice

Pros: this thing has what you need for what every u plan .. i have run World of Warcraft internet game on it and the frame rate is fine even though all the haters of vista (including myself). ASUS customer support is awsome, they can be very helfull if u need them.

Cons: i was an unlucky one to manage to catch one w/ a bad hard drive.. which is were the cust support remark comes in... they were awsome in handling everything and getting the computer shipped back to there center and back to me w/in a bout a week or so. very good compaired to some places

Other Thoughts: PLEASE dont let my con scare u away from this computer... it is an awsome system i just happend to catch a bit of bad luck w/ mine... it happens... as u see i still rate this computer a 5 becuse its worth it.. as someone else said u do pay a lil more for this system but YOU PAY FOR WHAT U GET and since its repair it has never worked better and have had 0 problems w/ it since

5 out of 5 eggsThe One I Was Looking For

Pros: Awesome non-integrated video card, 2year warranty...Simply everything I was looking for and more.

Cons: A little on the higher price end than other companies, but you're paying for true quality.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a reliable laptop after others seem to have about a year life-time. So hopefully this one will stick with and...and if it doesn't- 2year warranty!

5 out of 5 eggsMy Unequivocal Recommendation to All My Clients

Pros: 256MB discreet nVidia card (crucial for Vista)

2GB DDR2 Ram (Crucial for Vista)

801.11n ready as possible.

Fingerprint biometric login.

Bluetooth.

Webcam/microphone

6.5 Lbs for real

Cons: Absolutely no issues here. This machine handles Vista even if you can't(or won't). :-)

Other Thoughts: I run a small boutique computer consulting business and this F3SV-BS is just a good looking notebook with better and more features than any other vendor is currently offering. And it's an ASUS...one of the truly premiere manufacturers out there. This, plus a carry bag, optical mouse...you can't touch this!

5 out of 5 eggsSweet Laptop

Pros: This Laptop is probably one of the best deals that Newegg has at this time for the money and performance.

Cons: If you like me, dislike Vista and want to change operating system, It could be a bit difficult. Asus those not offer Windows XP drivers for this maodel making the XP installation somewhat painful, but duable. I put in a new hard drive, and kept the original for later use when Microsoft gets their act together with Vista. Runs great on XP Pro.

5 out of 5 eggsVista and how to fix

Pros: GREAT notebook dose not get hot at all great specs fast and relieble good siza and wieght

Cons: VISTA is the devil and the way i had to get rid of it was to buy a cheap external enclosure and wipe it. Then reinstall and install XP but once you do that you have to go into bios (f2) and change your sata to ide interface.

Other Thoughts: the drivers on the website are all for vista but if you go to the 'SC' they are all for xp exept graphics card. so they work.

5 out of 5 eggsthe laptop of champions

Pros: Asus has the best warranty around along with a carrying bag, a USB mouse, and shammy. Great specs - bright screen, a good webcam, the fingerprint reader is nice, and Medieval II has never run so fast.

Cons: An 8600M GT would be nice vs. the 8600M it has, but it's still a great video card.

Other Thoughts: I did a few weeks of research into both customized and ready to ship laptops from a lot of online vendors, and Asus laptops were consistently had the most bang for the buck.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty fast notebook

Pros: Nice bright display, not too much junk software to uninstall, pretty fast notebook, 2 GB of RAM which is pretty much a necessity with Vista

Cons: Norton Internet Security had to be uninstalled before I could connect to the internet.

Other Thoughts: I am very pleased with this notebook. The display is easy to read and using the fingerprint reader to log on is pretty nice so far. I certainly hope that Asus lives up to the slogan on their desktop wallpaper; Rock Solid, Heart Touching.
