For work, I actually have the N61JQ, and am allowed to use it as my own (however, I'm leaving at the end of the year - which is why I went ahead and bought a new one for myself). There are a few reasons why I like this one over the N61JQ:
1) The battery life is longer. I've gotten a good 3-4 hours out of this laptop, and probably more if I had been paying attention!
2) I'm a server administrator, which means I type a LOT. I like the keyboard on this laptop better. The keys are slightly "texturized", as most keyboards are. The N61JQ's keys, however, are as smooth as smooth can by. It's kind of weird, and I don't really like it.
2b) The only thing to note, however, is that this keyboard is very slightly smaller than what I'm used to. It's not even enough to bother me, but I do notice it from time to time. I wouldn't say my hands are "squished", but my fingers have to be a bit more precise when I'm typing than on other keyboards - so I don't make a typo!
3) This one was about $250 cheaper - I got it for ~$650
4) Still comes with a great DVD RW / CD RW
5) The core processor is an i5 and is a Dual Core. The N61JQ has a slightly faster Dual Core, but who cares?? I'm never going to notice the difference, and it wasn't worth it for another $250.
6) This laptop comes with a camera memory card reader (SD, etc...).Read more ›
And when I purchased this laptop last week, I added another victory to my list of great savings. I recently bought an HP i7, 1TB HDD, 6GB RAM, Blu-Ray, 9-cell, 1GB graphics, Fingerprint reader, 1.3mp camera...and I just sold it after receiving this beautiful ASUS.
Plays 1080p YouTube videos flawlessly
A price tag of 499 on Black Friday.
Camera Logon is inefficient
Keypad "0" is half the original size, the right-arrow key replaces the left half of the ZERO key.
Camera itself is .3 megapixels, not 1.3 like most laptops.
No Bluetooth, sadly. Would've made this a perfect computer.
No Fingerprint reader
I bought this at 5am on Black Friday BY ACCIDENT. There were no ads for this, Amazon didn't even post it on their home page or their Sales page. I searched for 'i5' under $500 and this was the only result. I hesitated for a few minutes, thinking it was too good to be true, but after reading the specs I purchased it. Ten minutes later, it was sold out. I paid for one-day shipping (3.99 with Prime) and sure enough, I got the package the next morning. So no need to stand out in the cold like most people do on Black Friday. Thank you Amazon! Thank you Asus!
Screen looks great and crisp, has a numeric keypad on the right side, which is usually set for 17" laptops. Webcam is so so but something better would jump up the price. Keyboard strokes were easy to press, and the laptop just blazes.
The one year accidental warranty is awesome because it covers anything and everything that could happen to it...cracked screen, busted keyboard, etc.
The hard drive is partitioned into 3 partitions to start with. The first partition has no volume label and is the recovery partition. The second partition is a little about 110GB for the operating system. The final partition is the "Data" partition. This covers the remainder of the drive. I didn't like this and called support (actually before the Office call) to inquire about how to merge the C and D partitions. I thought it would take a utility, but if you right click on Computer in the Start menu and select Manage, you can delete the data partition and then extend C out to fill this. It makes sense to me because then programs don't get tripped up when they try to install and run out of space in program files or while storing media to the documents folder. By the way, one of the techs thought that the "Data" partition was the recovery partition and tried to tell me I'd have to purchase the recover disk if I had not performed a backup.Read more ›
