Very nice laptop
This review is from: ASUS N73JF-XT1 Notebook Core i5-460M 2.53GHz 4GB Memory 500GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M 17.3" Windows 7 Home Premium
Pros: I'm an IT Major and use this laptop for school, typically light programming and web design. I'm also a gamer and the performance is great, the core i5 coupled with the gt335m make for a solid build. I have no problems running newer games such as COD Blackops, fallout 3/new vegas, and portal 2. Some I can even run at highest graphics settings.
Cons: I use Windows 7 and Ubuntu via dual boot. Limited support for proprietary graphics drivers in Linux is a disappointment. Nvidia doesn't have a driver that can make use of the "Optimus" hybrid GPU technology. In Ubuntu I can only use the integrated Intel VGA chipset. This wouldn't be as big of a problem but the gt335m is always on and consuming power, but cannot be used.
Other Thoughts: Even with the cons I'm only deducting one egg because I love this laptop. It is built very solid and has a beautiful display. If I had never put Ubuntu on it I would have given it five eggs. I would recommend it to anyone.
