5 out of 5 eggsNot too shabby

Pros: This is an absolute workhorse. I used to have a dual core desktop and I am glad I upgraded. I wouldn't say that this laptop is the quickest, but it can multitask anything you throw at it without skipping a beat. Thinking in terms of cars, if you are looking for a turbo charged 4 cylinder - this isn't it. This is a Dodge Hemi V8 truck. not as quick off the bat, but plenty powerful in all the tough stuff.
Gaming is awesome on this thing. I have been playing Crysis on it and it plays everything on high settings; but I moved them down to medium.

Cons: Bloatware. Reformat this puppy the second you get it. I was all freaked out because this computer was running so slow when I got it, but after taking off all of the meaningless apps, this thing breezes.

Other Thoughts: Opt for this (n61jq-A1) over the N61jq-x1. You get the 500gb hard drive instead of the 320gb for the same price.

5 out of 5 eggsLOVE IT LOVE IT!!!

Pros: fast booting, light and mobile, plays all recent games with medium to high settings on graphics, for being a quad core it stays relatively cool, looks and feels amazing, and (on the battery saving mode!) i get about 2hrs 15mins of battery time which was more than what i was expecting.

Cons: i'd rather have more usb ports than three but that's no biggie! Screen resolution is only 1366x768, you'd expect 1080p.

Other Thoughts: other than those few quirks, this machine operates beautifully on a daily basis. I've already upgraded my RAM to 8gb DDR3 1333 (PC3 10600). My video editing, photo editing, audio editing programs have never worked faster. For a while I was debating on whether or not to build myself a new desktop or finally get with the times and buy a laptop, but I'm glad that I did so. ASUS makes a bomb computer backed up by their TWO-YEAR WARRANTY WITH THE FIRST BEING ACCIDENTAL! That's freaking ridiculous.
