5 out of 5 eggsGet this is you know you want the HI DEF screen AND KNOW exactly what it look like!

Pros: I bought this for the hi res screen to play game. Big disappointment in this area, as the hi res isn't that great in game, I should've stick with lower res cousin of this model.

Everything works great except read below...

Cons: Screen, Resolution is higher than I expected, web browsing experience is horrible, tiny texts and blank spaces!

4 out of 5 eggsNothing comes free

Pros: Good process, video, sound. Love the monitor - crisp, clear, and at a very good resolution. Video adapter very nice. Best of all, this thing runs cool and quite.

Cons: Bloat-ware - and this is where the (relatively) budget price is offset. There's so much bloat-ware that it has a significant impact on system startup, system shutdown, and day to day operation. Trying to uninstall all of it is an exercise in futility. Had to resort to a complete system wipe and Win7 reinstall (using other, legal, distribution media and the product key on the bottom of the laptop - MS activated it without issue).

Other Thoughts: This is the third Asus laptop I've bought in the last three or four years. They started out lightly loaded but seem to have jumped on the bloatware bandwagon.

4 out of 5 eggsDarn good.

Pros: Anti-Fingerprint cover
Large hard drive
Full keyboard
Nice webcam
1950x1080 display
It runs super cool

Cons: The speakers are pretty bad when the volume is loud
The screen plate is made of shiny plastic that shows finger prints
The keyboard is a bit odd to type on, but it'll be easy to get used to
To scroll you need to enable the feature and use two fingers instead of one
Lots of bloatware

Other Thoughts: So far I've tried to play Minecraft and Skyrim. Skyrim plays on high settings very well and Minecraft generates worlds quickly.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming notebook

Pros: -i5 2.3+ghz processor w/ turbo
-Beautiful screen with native HD resolution
-Mid/High end graphics card
-Great speakers (Bang & Olufsen ICEpower)
-640 gig HD
-USB 3.0

For the price, this laptop is amazing. Graphics run great, can use relatively good settings on most new games in 1920x1080 resolution, and max settings with slightly lower resolution for the rest. Graphics a bit quirky at first, though after manually setting when to use the discrete graphics it works flawlessly (although usually switches on by itself fine).

Processor is a beast, great multitasking without lag/stutter.

Speakers in this are amazing for a laptop, really high quality with depth and good volume to them, I've only had a handful of things times where something sounded distorted, (granted speakers were at max volume) and I am constantly watching movies/gaming/listening to music on this, just amazing speakers.

Looks sleek.

Cons: -Keyboard layout (would prefer different dynamic around the num pad area, although it works alright)
-Some glitches with software (although I believe these to be isolated, therefore not necessarily a con)
-5,400 RPM HD
-Bloatware (although it is minimal, and to be expected)

The keyboard can be a bit of a pain, with respect to the num pad dynamics, however the rest of the keyboard (everything left of num pad/arrow keys) is laid out nicely.

Very minimal flex.

My software issues appear isolated, so not much of a con. HD is only 5,400 RPM although this saves power and is really not as slow as others might make it out to be.

Other Thoughts: Definitely worth it for the price.

Amazing processor and graphics card, great for gaming and school work. Plays newer games with modest settings at its native resolution, max settings at lower res.

Battery life is decent, on power save mode I get a tad less than 6 hours of programming with some wifi/web browsing mixed in.

Keyboard is not as bad as others make it out to be.

Also, many of the issues others seem to be having with this laptop are software related, and every one of them (from what I gather) have been or can be fixed with driver updates (in some cases it seems they have uninstalled drivers completely and wonder why some features like function key and the top buttons don't work, go figure).

A fresh install of Windows and a quick search on some forums for the proper/needed drivers is recommended, none the less (to get rid of the bloadware, which takes 20minutes tops to do manually).

Great all around laptop for gaming and entertainment.

2 out of 5 eggsConnectivity problems

Pros: - Solid build, except for the keyboard
- Decent speakers
- High screen resolution

Cons: - The touchpad is awful. Sometimes it just does not register any interaction with my fingers as if I am wearing gloves over my hands.
- CONNECTIVITY! Sometimes my connection is just gone after a few minutes of use. No matter if I wired or wireless, whether I use Firefox, Chrome, or IE. Simply dead, until I restart the system. Very annoying.

Other Thoughts: Maybe I got a one off bad product. I can't really tell.

5 out of 5 eggsOverall Great Laptop

Pros: It has been over a year now since I owned it and it it is still at te same condition. one thing I changed which is the Hdd I replaced it with Intell's SSD 120GB.

1- runs cool.
2- solid feeling as if it is new. The screen base or bundle or what ever it is called still hard no flimsy feeling at all. No dead pixel at all.
3- Built mostly of Almuniom, which is not favorable for some but it is great on the long run.
4- Great Speaker worth every penny.

Cons: There is nothing major to be considered, but here are some of my marks:
1- As previusly said in others comment you dont have a full control of what you could run on GPU. there is a manuall option to choose programs to run over GPU but it dosen't work all the time.

2- Keyboard Layout. If you see it you would think there is no flaw about it everything on it seems perfect. But you might need time to be used to it. (not a big deal for me)

3- Color and design. I think this is the one area ASUS should work on to the conquer the Notebook. The stuff under the hood ASUS makes the best quality no dought.

Other Thoughts: I think it deserve more than 3 eggs. I haven't seen any major problem or defect in the other reviews except one review.
This product overall is great. If you so picky about the layought and design you may consider something else. This laptop in my openion is a great machine and will be the longest Note book I ever had.

4 out of 5 eggsVery satisfied with amazing specs

Pros: - i5 2410m (turbo up to 2.9)
- GT 550m, most 15.6 inch i've seen around here rock the 540m. The GT 550m is an amazing graphics card which I overclocked to around 900 Ghz.
- The design is lightweight to medium weight for a 15 inch, yet leaving enough capacity and ventilation for overclocking and long hours of turboboost.
- Bang and Olufsen speakers. These are gorgeous. They are the best laptop speakers I have ever had, even without sonicmaster, making this laptop truly a multimedia king.
- 1920 x 1080 resolution display. It is glossy, it is fine and it is amazingly beautiful. I like working in 1920 x 1080 because reading spreadsheets and PDF files is just so crystal clear.
- battery life is also very long, 6 hours with power saving while browsing and working. Gaming takes 2 hours on balanced mode.
- For this price, the performance and specs are great.
- great responsive touchpad, with smooth 2 finger scrolling and tapping.
- 4 USB ports (1 3.0)

Cons: - Even though the flexing of the keyboard is minimum (it feels pretty solid), I do not prefer the layout. They should have left out the Numpad, since the keys on it are very small and it would have allowed more space between the main keys.
- The volume buttons between the speaker and keyboard are hard to press and i believe for some people (including myself) the lights are not working after you install a new windows and new drivers. Though I prefer to use FN, this could have saved more space for a better keyboard layout.
- Even though GT 550M is a very decent card that can handle all the latest titles out there on medium settings, it cannot perform at an optimal level when faced with a high resolution screen like this one. Since the native is 1920 x 1080, you would have to tone it down a bit to run games at high - ultra settings. I just keep mine at 1600 x 900 for both work and gaming.
- 5400 RPM HDD is standard but can be slow for some people.

Other Thoughts: Overall this computer is great for anyone that uses a laptop constantly for work/school and wanting to do medium to heavy gaming on the side. I would suggest a cheaper laptop if you're only interested in light gaming. For watching movies and other multimedia tasks, no laptop can beat this one, because of the amazing bang & Olufsen speakers and the crazy high resolution.

I have replaced the 5400 harddrive with a 7200 Seagate from one of my older computers and added RAM (6 GB total now), because i like a solid boot time and to spam programs. installed a fresh copy of Windows 7 Ultimate and everything runs clean and smooth without all the bloatware. I don't think bloatware is a Con in this laptop cus its so easy to get rid of and every laptop comes with them. This laptop is well designed and will accompany you for at least 4 years if you take good care of it.

1 out of 5 eggsProblems out of the box

Pros: Fast (major exception below), looks great, feels well constructed

Cons: Really does not like being put to sleep. Starting the computer up from sleep mode, for some reason, causes the processors to run full blast and makes the computer virtually unusable until the computer is restarted or shut down. However, then the computer will not shut down conventionally and will have to be forced to.

Other Thoughts: It's great so far when it works right, but a problem this bad out of the box leaves a lot to be desired. I'm hoping someone from ASUS can step forward and explain this.
