Sound quality is impressive as well (for a laptop).

Throw in the Nvidia GT 650m for playing games and this is an incredible value.

I feel like I got a great deal by going with ASUS over more mainstream brands.

I don't usually do reviews but this computer had no reviews and I love this machine. One thing about the marketing page though. Amazon has it advertised as 1 TB 7200 Hard drive. Instead, it has 2 Western Digital 500 GB 7200 RPM drives which are very easy to access in terms of opening up the laptop and messing with hardware. I have not changed any hardware and do not intend to. The screen is fantastic, the 1920x1080 res just makes everything look beautiful. The 17.3 inches is a little big but it's easy enough to carry around.

This laptop is not advertised as a gaming laptop but every game I have tried so far, Assassins Creed Franchise, Half Life 2, Team Fortress 2, and Sid Meier's Civilization 5, run perfectly with no lag even when running at full graphics. Today, I have spent almost 4 hours gaming without turning off or taking a break and the laptop external surface temp is room temperature if not a tad bit cooler. The included subwoofer is a nice addition which virtually takes out all of the tinny sounds that laptops are almost infamous for. When I have blasted the speakers at their full capacity I was able to hear this laptop almost 75 ft away with no issues.

The computer does come with a decent amount of pre-installed software but nothing that can't be uninstalled via the control panel. Also, the side button on the side that can be programmed is very nice. Also, the case is classy and sophisticated. The brushed aluminium design makes the computer look sleek and professional.

I only have two complaints with it so far.
1. The track pad. It looks nice and the concept with multi-gesture support is interesting, but it doesn't work. I don't like it. The pad is flimsy and a little over sized and the clicking is temperamental.

I bought this for my wife, thinking it was a great laptop for the money.
As is turns out, it is even better than I thought. She loves it and is extrememly happy with the speed, the sound quality, and the fact that it's quiet and light.

I also found out that it does indeed have a backlit keyboard, although this hasn't been mentioned in the reviews or the specs listing. Also the Asus logo on the back lights up. I dunno how this will affect anyone, as my wife covered it with a sticker.

For the money, I dont beleive there to be anything that comes close to this laptop. The fact that it's quiet, fast, has a blu ray player and a 1080P screen as well as a light up keyboard at this price point is remarkable. Throw in the Nvidia GT 650m for playing games and this is an incredible value. In fact I intend to get another one for myself.

I never wrote a review for a computer. I figure that there may be other readers in my shoes debating which one to choose so I am sharing my experience as a reference point but the decision is ALWAYS yours.

I was looking for my i7 desktop replacement. Not that my desktop is obsolete but it's noisy and generating too much heat that makes my study room hot in the summer. I was hoping to find a laptop that is not too bad in performance compared to my desk top and not too expensive either. This laptop beats my expectation!

I was debating between this one and Samsung Series 7 NP700Z7C-S03US. I was thinking that the Samsung advantage might be: 1. lighter; 2. better look. ASUS advantage is: 1. two hard drive bay that allows me to install SSD as system drive and use the 2nd hd for data; 2. Bluray burner; 3. ASUS warranty; 4. price advantage. Once I got the ASUS, the 2nd Samsung advantage disappeared as the ASUS looks gorgeous and the display is even more impressive. I went back to CompUsa to look at the Samsung again and feel that I like the look of the ASUS better. (CompUsa doesn't have the ASUS on display.) Once I got the machine, I replaced the 2nd HD with 128 GB SSD and installed Win 7 Ultimate. (I kept the 1st drive intact so the factory Win 7 Home and software are still in place.)
The WEI scores are CPU 7.6, RAM 7.7, Graphics 7.1/7.1, HD/SSD 7.7. This is on par with my i7 desktop system and the speed of booting, starting/running applications are on par with my desktop as well. The machine runs very quiet and for regular use (not gaming), it runs cool. Hardware Monitor reports highest core temperature at just over 60 degree Celsius for the last few days. I can feel warm surface on top of hard drive bays and on top of areas of vents. The back lit keyboard is great.

This is my first time buying a laptop computer sight-unseen from Amazon, and I'm very pleased with the experience. The laptop arrived quickly and safely and worked perfectly right out of the box. (I had expected that I would need to update the sound drivers based on some forum posts I had seen about this model, but that was unnecessary.) Uninstalling the bloatware that came with the computer took about fifteen minutes, which isn't that bad. I think it's a little odd that my hard drives came pre-partitioned, but I will make do. Setting up the warranty online was very straightforward.

The laptop has drawn lots of comments at work for looking similar to a MacBook Pro: it has a streamlined, brushed metal case and a trackpad with multitouch gesture recognition. As others have mentioned, the sound is excellent, though I don't picture myself packing the included subwoofer up to carry round with me. Luckily the laptop can just barely squeeze into my backpack - the screen size is very large and a little elongated. The charger's not small (bigger than a box of annimal crackers, smaller than a Kleenex box) and I have ordered another for work so that I don't have to lug that around, too.

The processing power and graphics are amazing. I feel like I got a great deal by going with ASUS over more mainstream brands. After all the bad things friends had to say about their Lenovo, Dell, and HP laptops, switching to a brand I'd never even seen was not a huge hang-up for me. Time will tell if the laptop is well-constructed, but for now at least I have the included two-year warranty and some name brand parts I trust.
