I've now had this laptop for a couple weeks, and have been very impressed. Before choosing this laptop, I shopped quite extensively, as I am a computer technician and knew what I was looking for. I narrowed my choices down to this one and another Asus (the ASUS N61JQ-XV1 found at http://www.amazon.com/N61JQ-XV1-16-Inch-Versatile-Entertainment-Laptop/dp/B0041RRVOG/ref=rsl_mainw_dpl?ie=UTF8&m=ATVPDKIKX0DER).

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...).

My job in the office everyday consists of two things: finding the best products for the best prices. So when the time came to purchase something for myself, my skills came in handy.

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.

PROS:
i5 Processor
Light-weight
Beautiful design/finish
Keypad
Small Adapter
Textured Touchpad
Great sound
Plays 1080p YouTube videos flawlessly
A price tag of 499 on Black Friday.

CONS:
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.
Bloatware
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!

Searched slickdeals' hot topics at 4am on black friday, and it was listed from a fellow user for $499.99. Bought it immediately since I was going to spend $399 for an inferior Asus with a Dual Pentium P6100 processors and less memory and HD space. Knowing how slickdeals was, it was going to be front page in a matter of time...and once it hit front page, 2 minutes later it was sold out.

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.

ASUS support is a little bit frustrating. I called to inquire why my trial copy of Microsoft Office 2010 was in Chinese (or some other oriental character set). He asked if I had the disk, which does not come with the laptop. I stated that I did not. Then he had me do a restore, which lost all the customizations and files I had copied to the drive. I questioned this and asked if he was sure a restore would really help. It didn't really make any sense, since the thing was in a setup mode when I unboxed it. I didn't see how reloading would do anything since I hadn't adjusted any settings for Office. Well, you guessed it, it didn't work. He said I could send it in to have Office properly installed, but I decided I wasn't going to go through that kind of trouble just to install a trial edition.

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.
