5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Probably the most I have spent on a laptop (I know), tend to stick with desktop builds. It has lasted me well and I'm still using it for work/leisure. It is currently working on geocoding (from external resource) 30 million addresses. No issues in 2 years of regular usage yet and still trucking on.

Cons: Can't complain.

Other Thoughts: Currently installed ubuntu server 12.04 onto it with LXDE for the desktop environment. No issues with wireless drivers/sound not working (can be an issue with some laptops when installing ubuntu).

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Purchase

Pros: -Good specs for the price
-Beautiful screen
-Stylish Design

Cons: -Probably low end speakers, even on high, it's a little quiet.

Other Thoughts: After around a year of ownership, I believe this laptop was a great investment to me. I occasionally game, and the 540m may not be able to handle higher end games, but it can run most games I play.

4 out of 5 eggsGood for money

Pros: -Best specs I could find for a laptop under $750 that's not a gateway or msi.
-It has ASUS 1 year accidental warranty which is nice.
-The video card was strong enough to play games such as league of legends; it's hard to find good discrete video cards in lower priced laptops

Cons: -Keyboard layout (keys too small)
-screen resolution
-touchpad (no scrolling)

I had an IBM laptop and the keyboard provided does not compare. Also theres a numpad which squeezes all the other keys and makes it harder to type. I'd prefer a keyboard with no numpad personally.
AFAIK the touchpad does not allow scrolling by sliding you finger on the right side.
I dislike the 1366x768 resolution; but at this price something has to give.

Other Thoughts: I've had the laptop since around June '10, ordered from newegg for 750 at the time. Overall I don't think I could have found a better laptop at this price point and don't regret purchasing this one.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Computer.. Bad Speakers

Pros: Good monitor, stays cool, 750gb harddrive, 6gb ram

Cons: Horrible speaker quality. They are quiet and loses sound quality even at full volume.

Other Thoughts: I like this computer, it runs nicely and looks great.. but being a music lover, I cannot tolerate the built in speakers.

1 out of 5 eggsStay Away Linux Users

Pros: Very capable computer. i5 / Nvidia / Good RAM / Big HD.

Cons: Shift + Insert is really Shift + Function + Delete keys, which is not a fast way of pasting.
This laptop SUCKS with Linux due to it having OPTIMUS technology. Optimus tech is two graphics cards, an INTEL and a NVIDIA. The Windows switches graphics cards based on graphics load. In Linux this is currently UNUSABLE! Stay away from this laptop true geeks

Other Thoughts: I would love this computer if it didn't have the INTEL card and only had the NVIDIA card. Lots of weird things in Fedora 15 due to the dual card issue.

5 out of 5 eggsvery good

Pros: -Fantastic specs for the price.
-Stays cool regardless of the situation.
-ASUS warranty
-750gb 7200RPM hard drive
-Too many to name! *see the few cons*

Cons: -the touchpad and buttons are not the best but I have a mouse attached 95% of the time so it doesn't bother me
-some flex in the keyboard but otherwise it's decent
-speakers and LCD are dull compared to most other laptops
-ports are placed very poorly but it doesn't affect performance

Other Thoughts: The performance is simply phenomenal from this machine and at $750 with no rebates involved, this is hands down the best bang for your buck.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: - Fast
- Doesn't get bogged down at all, you can through whatever you want at it.
- Looks neat
- It's ASUS! You know it will last. Built out of aluminum and not the cheap plastic.

Cons: - Gets Extremely hot when doing intense sessions (An underside fan is a good addition).
- Battery life is meh, but I wasn't really expecting any miracles.
- Resolution isn't 1920 x 1080, but the difference isnt anything crazy... looks fine to me.

Other Thoughts: I bought this as an Open Box Item. Needless to say, I see why it was dropped by $180. When I recieved the item, I got a used Hard Drive that had Windows 7.... in Chinese. If you don't know what fun is, try navigating in a different language using symbols. I ended up just using another OS I had lying around and reformatted. Ever runs perfectly fine. No issues.

5 out of 5 eggsBest laptop for your money!

Pros: - Great processor and ample memory
- Runs all my games very well, CS:S flawlessly
- Large HDD storage for a laptop
- Great keyboard
- Speakers aren't too bad, at least for a laptop
- Feels durable!
- DAT PRICE!!!
- Best laptop for a college student

Cons: - USB layout: Not convenient placement for a wired mouse. I use a wireless mouse with a tiny USB receiver, so it's a non-issue for me.
- Mouse pad is OK, it's very sensitive so it'll jump around if a part of my finger is barely touching another part of the surface.
- Not an amazing webcam, but I don't use webcams so again, non-issue for me.

Other Thoughts: Even with those slight cons, this laptop is the greatest! Maybe not a desktop replacement if you're a hardcore gamer, but this can certainly play all Valve games and much more! And the specs you're getting for that price, it's the best bargain for a laptop I've seen in a while!

Word of advice: If you see it in stock, BUY IT NOW! These suckers go out of stock very quickly!

5 out of 5 eggsGraphic Designers Choice

Pros: Pretty much every spec is a pro. And for a few dollars more I bought another 4GB memory stick and maxed out the laptop at 8GB.

Cons: Only real problem I have is the location of the power cord, but its not a big deal.

Other Thoughts: I use this laptop for Graphic design work. I usually have Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, and Fireworks all open at the same time, while streaming music from the web, and this thing doesn't even blink if I want it to do more. You definitely cannot beat this for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsTremedous laptop

Pros: Amazing speed, plays all the games I throw at it just fine, strong internet connection through my WiFi and my work WiFi. Couldn't be more pleased. Camera works very well, nice and clear. Battery lasts about 4.5 hours on battery saving settings, about 1.5 hours when doing mid range HD graphics gaming (Dragon Age Origins at maxed settings and AA/AF) Haven't noticed an issue with the resolution looking small, something that other reviewers noted. It doesn't hold a candle to my three 24 inch eyefinity desktop set-up, but not expecting it to since the entire laptop cost is less than the 3 displays and the video card on that one.

Cons: Sound was at first a little tinny, but I adjusted the sound settings through the equalizer and it sounds full now. Had to figure out the use of the higher end video card through the hybrid system - you can left click on the game icon and choose "Run with High-End Graphics Processor" for games it doesn't auto-detect as needing that sort of thing (like Minecraft for instance).

Other Thoughts: Have had no issues at all and have been very happy with this lap top for work and for gaming.
