I only just got the computer, but so far it feels rugged (good thing) and the power jack does not feel like its going to pop (or slide out) unlike the N61JV-x4 which I am returning!

update:
Ive had the laptop for several weeks now, and run linux only -- no problems. Overall, for the price you get a pretty sturdy laptop. The keys do not feel like they are flimsy unlike the N61JV-X4. The ONLY thing that might bother SOME people is the speakers do not get "super" loud, which can be annoying if you have a lot of noise in background.

It is always hard to rate a computer within the first week or so of ownership, as durability and tech support is not measurable. Keyboard is good with an easy to understand layout. Touchpad is also good. Speakers are fine for watching movies, but like any laptop, are not ideal for audiophiles. I assume the audio jack could be used to connect to quality external speakers, but I have not tried it yet. Computer is quite good for standard office, movie watching, and other tasks.

I dual boot my computers so I can use Ubuntu Linux. If you do this, you will get to a text screen, but if you go into the Ubuntu recovery mode, you can scroll down to a "low resolution mode," run Update, and it will find the appropriate drivers for high resolution graphics, and you will be set to go. Windows 7 is better than Vista, but like all Microsoft products, is vulnerable to viruses, spyware, and hackers. It also always wants to update itself, boots slowly, and wastes time.
ASUS seems to have built a solid laptop that is also Ubuntu Linux compatible. No problems so far. I would recommend this to my friends.

I picked this up locally when my other computer died. It was a great price and I had hoped it would be as good as my 4 year old Gateway. After unloading all the garbage software that was pre-installed, I got busy configuring it to my needs.

I was very disappointed when I tried to watch videos on Youtube. With the speakers and the volume turned to max, a lot of videos I had visited in the past on my other laptop, the volume could not be heard, or barely heard. Then at time, the videos pixilate out and I have to bring the video down to 280 to even be able to watch it.

For an entertainment computer, skip this one. However, if you need something inexpensive for everything else, this works well and had nice capacity.

The computer itself is what I expected. It runs everything I need solidly, I can do light gaming, and streaming video is no problem. My problem is that after 5 weeks it died. I RMAd it on my dime (cruddy, but standard industry practice). I included, as instructed, my power adapter. Unfortunately, when I received the laptop back, I had no power cord. Now, two weeks later, I still don't have one. I have contacted ASUS customer service five times now, every time being told that I would be called back within 24 hours by a manager giving me a status update. Needless to say, I have yet to receive a call back, and all I want is someone to ship an adapter to me ASAP. Avoid this and any ASUS products like the plague. Their performance may be good, but if anything goes wrong you don't want to deal with their Kafkaesque customer service department.

I like the laptop. It is a nice picture and I love windows 7 on it. Down fall is the sound is very low even with the volume all the way up. Plus the battery doesn't last that long. All around it was a good buy, I think.``
