Pros:

Power, harddrive(s), ease of access with internal parts, long power cord (FINALLY asus starts including good length ones), good keyboard, asus power supplies are pretty universal among asus products (the one that came with this charges my N10j, and would have worked with my M50 if I still had it), nice construction, pretty buttons, screen hinges are VERY firm no wiggle at all, surprising for such a big screen. 64 bit OS
Runs fairly cool (52C right now)

Something newegg doesnt really mention:
this does NOT have a 640GB harddrive. This has TWO 320gb 7200RPM harddrives in a raid 0. Meaning, it acts like a single 640, and you get GREAT performance.

Cons:

Screen resoultion could be higher, no left side USB port, mouse clicker is this single button design, which causes it to be harder to click the closer you get to the middle, 4GB max ram (could be wrong about that), no smart login (has a webcam, but doesnt have face recognition, I guess you have to have a fingerprint reader), screen latch requires you to have both hands to open it.

Other Thoughts:

First off, Asus customer service is awesome. I got this is a replacement for my M50 that I paid $1500 for a year ago. It was the third time I had sent it in (the problems being mostly my fault. thank you 1 year accidental) so they replaced it with this. They could have just sent something with matching specs, which would have been like, $1000, but they sent me this instead.
Only problem with asus support, expect to spend 30 minutes holding.

By opening two panels on the bottom, you gain access to both harddrives, Ram, wifi card, and the processor, which is not soldered in. Nice.

The speakers sound nice, but aren't very loud. They are SRS premium altec lansing, btw.

Stats and such:
Only played Endwar on it so far. does max graphics.

3D Mark 06:
5792, SM 2.0: 2392, SM 3.0: 2216, CPU: 2391.

Vista score.:
Processor: 5.5
RAM: 4.5
Graphics: 5.9
Gaming: 5.4
Harddrive: 5.8


Decent battery life for what you get. About 2 hours browsing the internet if you're careful
