5 out of 5 eggsGreat Price / Performance

Pros: Intel 2.2 Duo combined with the ATI 2600 HD(512 mb Dedicated). Is what first caught my attention. Finding the same thing elsewhere would of cost much more. No dead pixels.

Cons: 1GB. Vista needs at least 2GB in my honest opinion to run decent. I made sure to order an additional 2GB memory module same time as the laptop. Runs great.

Other Thoughts: Thank you Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive for the money

Pros: Absolutely a great buy for the money! I purchased four gigs of ram, wiped the hard drive and installed Vista Ultimate 64 bit along with the ram, and haven't looked back yet. Although the driver CD said Vista 32 bit, it did have the 64 bit drivers as well.

My previous laptop was a Thinkpad, which is still a great one at almost six years old, but to get similar specs as this Asus, almost twice the money would have been spent to get a new Thinkpad.

Cons: None so far, other than the anemic ram it came with, which was easily remedied.

Other Thoughts: I sat on the fence for several weeks before taking the plunge on this machine. It may not be a brushed alloy case and the likes, but it certainly feels solid, and comes with a good warranty.

5 out of 5 eggsFirst laptop and no regrets!

Pros: This laptop is nothing short of practical. The specs say it all and the price is right. It's right there in the middle in performance. Pretty much it'll get whatever it is you need to get done, done.

Cons: Only 1g on the memory and the finger scanner is a pain, but nothing to get bent out of shape over.

Other Thoughts: If you're a gamer and not too hard core of one, as in, if you don't have to play the latest games right away then this will suit you just fine. Besides, that's what desktops are for.

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!!

Pros: Great Warranty! Comes with good case, mouse, and pretty decent software. Did I mention the warranty. 2.2g processor, 512mb video card. Asus's website and support.

Cons: 1gb of ram

Other Thoughts: First laptop I have ever owned and Im hooked. I havent touched my desktop since. Bought a wireless router and 2gb dimm addon and this computer is great. Definitely spend another $50 on a 2gb memory upgrade when you purchase. Been playing Civ4 and it plays great but havent tried other games yet.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: Fast, Great Graphics, Goood Price.

Cons: Only 1gb RAM, Cheap to replace though.

Other Thoughts: Works Really great, I can play COD4 at full settings. I ran the recovery program to free some space in the hard drive. If you ever run it, after windows installation there will be a couple of restart confirmations, dont restart it, it will mess up everything, just put restart later or leave it there till everything's done, the computer will restart itself when needed. The whole prosess took a little more than two hours. Also fixed the fingerprint reader issues I had doing that.

4 out of 5 eggscant wait to use it

Pros: well first of all i love asus. I know this is bais but w/e=) I just ordered it and hopefully it will come soon. Ive been using computers and laptops for a long time and numbers just prove its superior. 2.2ghz for $1k is too good. especially core 2 duo instead of AMD. I also like the graphics card, im definetly gana game on this. I like that its also a 1gb ram stick, not 2x512 so ill have a nice round number of 3gbs

Cons: Taking longer then i thought to get here. if they just charged me an extra 40 bucks to stick in a 2gb to make it a total of 3gb i would have been happy. The harddrive is 5400rpm but i guess im picky and wanted 7200. 3 usb ports and 1 eSATA which is a combo usb, i think this means 4 usbs maybe?? if its only 3 i would need to get a usb splitter because i have 2 external drives a fan and a usb mouse. but w/e

Other Thoughts: All in all i think this is a great buy. Asus is a top brand in my book. I know i will like it even before i even touch it. You can count on this company especially with the 1 year warranty for accidental damage. Gaming and everything else in between.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Purchase!!

Pros: Cheap price, processor is fast, HD 2600 plays new games on medium and old game on mostly high. Comes with lots of extras like mouse, travel bag, nero 7 for burning, etc...

Cons: Vista is horrible, UAC is annoying!! get another gig of RAM at least or system will bog down. stickers on case.

Other Thoughts: bought 2 gigs of g-skill ram for 35 bucks and it is much smoother.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful laptop - follow up review

Pros: This is second review;
All hardware components are working perfectly;
Screen is georgeous
I still consider possible XP pro installation some day, but Vista reinstalled and working flowlessly now

Cons: I had to reinstall Vista. I spent 10 hours trying to connect to Internet, it is not worth doing this. Upon arrival of the laptop, my suggestion is to have Vista reinstalled right away, and do it before replacing the memory, just in case

Other Thoughts: Now it recognized the wireless network immediately after installation, without any problem. Home network is Comcast cable- Motorola Surf modem - Linksys WRT54G router - this laptop on Vista
The Mushkin memory didn't work :(, I replaced it with 4 Gigs Kingston value SODIMM at 667Mhz, it works in dual mode without problem; Kingston memory is in the list of supported brands by Asus laptops

5 out of 5 eggsGreat product for the price!!

Pros: Best bang for the buck, compared to big name laptops. Connections for all your gear, finger print reader, included usb mouse is great.

Cons: Really could have re-located the front usb port somewhere other than the front. Only 1 Gig of memory.

Other Thoughts: For the price, I purchased the laptop, 4 gigs of memory, a 320 Gig WD hard drive, an external enclosure for the original hard drive, and a nice targus backpack and was still cheaper than a "brand name" laptop (alone) with same Processor.
