Good Laptop

Pros: Anyone purchasing this as a desktop replacement for gaming will not be disappointed with performance. I've loaded up Stalker, Drakensang, Dead Space, Fry Cry 2, and Gothic 3. All of these are able to run with maximum settings, except Gothic 3. I average 30-55 fps at max. No machine can run Gothic 3 without lag, particularly the turning lag - but, it is enjoyable and playable on this sytem.

Eveyone mentions the heat and I agree - you could bake bread with heat output! But, it's a gaming laptop, so it's to be expected. If you purchase, make sure to get a laptop cooler to prolong life.

Keyboard layout is nice and seems to be very responsive.

Cons: Sound - out of the box this laptop is weak on sound and is my only complaint. Playing sound through the speakers is weak and sounds sort of washed out. As mentioned before, base is very low. Overall volume is sort of low too. For the money Asus should have put in a better speaker system.

The laptop is capable of delivering 5.1 surround sound to an external device, but locally you only have 2 speaker stereo. 5.1 output to an external device is a nice touch, but I have to wonder how many people connect a laptop to external speakers?

The laptop ships with standard Creative Soundblaster tools, but they are not really useable without the purchase of a USB Creative sound card or something similar.

If the speakers and sound were of higher quality, this would easily be a 5 star system. Audiophiles like me that are purchasing will probably want to consider external sound cards and/or headphones.

Other Thoughts: I'm happy with my purchase, but the speaker output is disappointing for the price.

SWEEEEET AND HOT

Pros: Out of the box, Very nice. I use for games and it is very fast. Unpacked it, turned it on and have been smiling ever since.

Cons: BAH only thing I hate is the width of the case versus the screen. They could have cramed a larger screen in the case or a smaller case on the machine. HEY GOT TO FIND SOME PROBLEM! OH I had one issue, paid for next day air and newegg sat on their butts instead of shipping it fast. One phone call telling them if i did not get the machine by the next day I was going to cancel my order stirred them into action!

Other Thoughts: Have a m170 and we all know it was a nice machine in its time, but this one rocks. Very glad I picked this machine over the alienware!

Great Laptop!

Pros: Very well thought out design.... I don't "game", but I love a fast, responsive multitasker, & this is it...

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: I spent months looking at all variations of different laptops, money was no object. This is the one I chose ;)

Perfect

Pros: Perfect laptop for a hardcore gamer. I can run WoW, TF2, CS and more all on high graphics and never lag. The keyboard is better than I thought it would be, awesome for keybindings in all games.

Cons: Most people say it get's really hot, but I didn't find it that bad. When you're running a high graphic type game, it's expected to get a little hot, but nothing serious.

Other Thoughts: Overall, if you are a gamer looking to switch from your desktop to a gaming laptop, this is the one for you. If you want to run CS, WoW, TF2 and other high end games without lag or disconnection issues, this ASUS laptop is your best pick.

Great so far...

Pros: Very smooth in the sense of graphics. Optimal for gamers on the go. There is also no lock when you close the screen. For some this is a con, but I prefer this kind of format. I also like the feel of the keyboard. It took a little getting used to, along with the scroll on the mouse pad, but still a nice lil feature. Also, I'm going to have to disagree with some of the other reviews when it comes to how heavy this thing is. It really is pretty practical, especially for mobile gaming. Also I'm glad that they put a different material where your hands rest. It takes care of the glossy finger print problem, even though people are kinda pointing out that they fingerprints are all over. They really are only on the outside of the laptop, unless you have really greasy fingers...for some strange reason.

Cons: The battery life is just over 2 hours. It would have been nice if they had upgraded to a higher cell, but they can be purchased locally....I looked into it. The heat is a lil bit of a problem, so if you plan on keeping this plugged in somewhere and are going to use it at a regular work station I would purchase one of the coolers for the laptop to sit on. I can't remember which one I got, but its not the coolmaster, but the other one thats like 60 bucks, and it works great.
I also have to note that trying to get everything done for upgrading to windows 7 is just kinda a pain. You have to go onto Microsoft's website and register, and then you have to wait to get an authentication from them, which took them about a week and a half to get to me, and now they want a proof of purchase. A little hassle, but nothing that takes away from the laptop itself. Not really too much bloatware, but the eight second bootup thing really is a waste. You will see when you get this laptop

Other Thoughts: It seems that they lessened a few things that could have been upgraded easily, but this laptop is made so you CAN upgrade it in the future. I'm not 100% on what exactly you can change out yet, except for the hard drive and ram. Also plan on getting a second battery or car charger for on the go, or if you travel a lot. This really is a great laptop to buy. I was having a hard time deciding on this or one of the macbook pro's but I weighed out both pros and cons, and decided to roll with this beast. Overall, this is definitely worth getting, and worth the money put into it.

Great gaming laptop!

Pros: 1. Great video card
2. Good CPU
3. Aesthetically appealing (personal opinion)
4. Plenty of RAM
5. Nice backlit Keyboard
6. Windows 7 free upgrade
7. 1080p is awesome, you almost don't need anti-aliasing

Cons: 1. Don't like the partitioned HD
2. SPEAKERS are surprisingly weak considering the rest of the components (not a huge deal for me though)

Other Thoughts: This computer is fast, plain and simple. Graphics are smooth on every game I have played. It's been a while since i have had a computer fast enough to play the latest games, so I am looking forward to a lot of new release titles.

Impressed

Pros: It is fast; faster than I expected.
It can run most video games at their highest graphics settings. Includes the free upgrade to Windows 7 through the manufacturer. Full keyboard; some don't care much for this but I am a huge fan.

Cons: Runs hot and while playing games; very hot. Max 4gig ram. high resolution is great but the tiny text/icons is a little annoying. Bloatware is there but not nearly as bad as I expected. Speakers are Ok at best.

Other Thoughts: I bought this computer to replace my desktop and it is able to do so very easily. It out paces my desktop on almost all fronts and I have set up a home server to take care of the fact that it only has 360gig hdd space.
