Pros:

Nearing 3 years of use on this laptop and it's still running as strong as day one with the exception that I did finally drop Windows 7 on it, which was a wise move. I've also had a duel boot setup with Windows 7 and a variation of Ubuntu and no issues(until a linux update trashed GRUB and I had to re-install MBR). Even with a current Linux this thing works with no problems.

From Windows 7(have not tried Windows 8 yet as I simply do not have a copy of it yet to try, but did try the Windows 8 previews in a virtual machine on this laptop under Windows 7 and no problems there) to Linux, from MS Office to GTA San Andreas and from Netflix to Sony Vegas Pro this laptop has taken everything I've thrown at it without even blinking.

Cons:

The only real con here is that this laptop is seems to be no longer available to purchase. :-(

Well that, and the flashy annoying lights on this thing. But that can be resolve by going to going to the ASUS site and tracking down the software for this laptop which has a control program for dealing with the lights.
