Most Favorable Review

Good Gaming replacement

ASUS Laptop Intel Core i7 1st Gen 720QM (1.60GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 17.3" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit N71JQ-X1
ASUS Laptop Intel Core i7 1st Gen 720QM (1.60GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730 17.3" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit N71JQ-X1

Pros: Decent graphics card for games Good processor and memory amt USB 3.0 Price

Cons: Heat Speakers have low volume-Use USB powered Speakers when possible. LCD not the best quality-Tight viewing angle Power plug right next to exhaust fan USB plugs on left and right side-Interferes with mouse use if lefty/righty. Wish they would have put USB, PWR plug on the back to exhaust port on the back. Gets a little warm-Using Zalmann USB powered cooler which helps

Overall Review: I am happy with this labtop since I travel alot and primary play games on it. Plays most games with graphic settings at mid-High, or High but not extreme settings. Cons are just things that I would change or look for in a different labtop if I thought of it at the time, however the price was the best for the same hardware so I gave a little due to that

Pros: Great Streaming from WHS 2011 box, no stuttering. Updated firmware was a snap. Lots of menu settings

Cons: Remote a little cheap feeling but it works. Does not see network box on network unless I input the IP addy so make sure yours is on a static IP then included login/pass which it then found it. Asus boxes didnt need to do this. REBATE IS TERRIBLE, just bought it and tried to set up rebate and website states invalid for rebate when I entered S/N. I got 2 and both rejected!

Works OK, bueeter if given more power
