Pros: Good above basic laptop. my wife uses it primarily for email and other basic tasks. Not sure it'd be gamers choice but anyone else, works great.
Other Thoughts: Watch out for shift and FN key 6. Turns off wireless lan, I presume for commuters to save battery. Took me 10 minutes to figure out why it wouldn't connect. one thing no easy way to turn off pad. My wife prefers a mouse and sometimes resting your hand starts stuff. probably how lan got turned off.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Visual. Nice screen. Works well...when it works.
Cons: Start. Done for the day, either shut off screen (press power button briefly) or leave it for the set time and screen turns off. It has plenty of charge, but next day it WILL not start and you cannot start it unless you put it on the charger let it sit for a day and then start it when plugged in. It appears it is discharging when it's in sleep mode.
Other Thoughts: Google this and you see many references to power problems. Perhaps Asus has fixed it in newer models, but if you buy, make sure you can return it for at least 60 days. I bought re-furbished from Newegg and mine started acting up just after the allowed time to return it. Asus won't accept the unit for repair unless it does not work at all, which is not the case with mine, so I'm stuck with a unit that "sort of works".READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: When I got it working, card works well. Price is good for its specs.
Cons: Driver that came on disk, crashed my system; same for driver that Vista installed. But when I downloaded Nvidia driver from Nvidia, everything now played nice.
Probably a case of "Vistaitis"; dumbest move I made was "downgrading" to that OS.
Other Thoughts: Card is very long. If you have a small case or configuration where you don't have much room from PCI back may have problems with this one.
Got it for HDMI output to flat screen. Works very well for video; no audio of course. Unless you can hook up card to your sound card; a small cable is supplied that seems to be for that purpose, but "manual"(I use that term loosely) explains nothing about its use, nor is web site any help. If fact manual is nothing more than sparse installation instructions(insert card, duh), doesn't even mention additional power connection requirement; but that was obvious anyway. Zotac needs to work on their people skills.
