good college laptop
Pros: I bought this computer to use for college and to replace my 5 year old laptop. It has decent 3d rendering capability(i can play ever quest 2 smoothly and a watch a nice skyrim slideshow too. the CPU and mb heat up to 65 C however the outside case stays cool. the fan and hard rive are actually kinda quite too
Cons: the physical construction seams cheap and the 320 gb 5400 rpm hard rive is really slow compared to my 120 gb ssd, unless your plugged in the graphics are pretty sluggish
Other Thoughts: I debated on getting a laptop with a dedicated graphics card, however I wanted something light weight with battery life.

AR9285 CARD TERRIBLE
Pros: I like the Asus laptops because they run so much cooler than my HP my wife also has one. The intel chip does a good job for my needs.
Cons: The AR9285 wireless card is the only thing I do not like it does not work well with Windows 7 there are complaints about this issue all over the internet if you are not in the same room with your router it will drop. I called Asus support they where of little use they wanted me to send it in 14 day wait no thanks.
Other Thoughts: If you buy this laptop be prepared to buy another wireless card because the AR9285 is junk.
