Pros: I really like Asus, they make high quality products at a very good price. I was lucky and was able to get this pc for only $320 via newegg's spotlight deal! Boot speed is very fast, screen is great, Win 7 is a great OS (coming from XP). There is a previous negative review about the glitchy touch pad, which I thought was glitcyh at first too, but the bottom and right side are for the scroll wheel. After getting used to it, I think the touch pad is great. There is more hard drive space then I know what to do wth, and coming from only 512mb of memory, having 4gb is mind blowing.
Cons: The main typing area is too far to the left, so my hands do not naturally land on the home keys (F,J), and the home key nubs do not stick up high enough, so I often loose my position on the keyboard. Battery life is not spectacular, but still pretty good. There are no ports in the back of the laptop, everything is on the sides, which can be a little annoying since at my desktop I dual screen, use a mouse, and plug in the power... just too many cords on my desk. Whish it had a docking station.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I am very pleased with this new Laptop. More then meets my expectations given the price I paid.READ FULL REVIEW
