ASUS N50Vn-A1B NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 (2.00GHz) 4GB Memory 250GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GT 15.4" Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Intel Core 2 Duo T5800 (2.00GHz)
  • 4GB Memory 250GB HDD
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9650M GT
  • Windows Vista Home Premium
  • DVD Super Multi

Pros:

-Beautiful screen
-Full num-pad
-Internal wireless N
-Great specs (memory, processor, video card)!
-Dedicated backlit volume buttons (for some reason they are not shown in the pictures...but they are there)
-ASUS face-recognition software is both cool and functional. Logs me in automatically
-Runs Crysis and any other game Ive tried like a champ. Fallout 3 looks beartiful. LOTRO and BF2 run at max settings without a hicth.

Cons:

-Only 3 USB ports
-Blue-tooth software pops up when caps-lock/num-lock are pressed. It would kick me out of Crysis, which was really annoying
-Glossy parts are really pretty, but can be frustrating if your OCD about your stuff

Other Thoughts:

Some of the bloatware is useful/tolerable, some is really frustrating. The Blue-tooth software program issue is so stupid. If you have problems with the caps-lock notifications kicking you out of full screen games, just stop the "BTTray.exe" process. Lord knows why they included that with the Blue-tooth software...so annoying!

The included security software is also somewhat annoying. Whats worse I couldnt get some of it to uninstall. Looks like Im going to have to reimage the harddrive. Ill probably do that on my days off just to combine my hard drive from 2 partitions into one.

Crysis ran on all medium settings at 1024x768 at good frame rates, no hichups during big battles. Windows Preformance rated this machine a 4.8 with the following breakdown:
Processor - 4.9
Memory - 4.8
Windows graphics - 4.9
Game Graphics - 5.3
Hard Drive - 5.5
