+ Ridiculously awesome deal. I got this when it was 20% off ($860) and free shipping, and within a day after my purchase they ran out of stock, and it came back a day or two later at only 15% discount. Those quickly went out as well, and the discount dropped to 14%. The deal on this is dropping fast, so try to get it as soon as you can.
+ Keyboad is very sturdy with very little flex. I've seen another reviewer or two complain about the flex from the keyboard, however I'm concerned they might be commenting on the wrong model. Flexing is indeed an issue on similar items near this series, but in this particular one it feels perfectly fine. The keyboard features a numpad, which it fits in by sharing a few keys, which is a nice bit of optimization. This is actually one of the more comfortable keyboards I've ever used on a laptop. I was really happy when I got to check this out, because this was my only real concern from reading reviews, and I absolutely must have a quality keyboard because I expect to do a lot of written work on this laptop. Luckily, it feels great!
+ Turbo Booster is a really nice feature. Your CPU(s) will automatically overclock based upon the current demands on your system. I'm not much for extra-accessory desktop items, but this comes with a nifty blue bar that sits on your desktop and shows you in real time what your CPUs are being overclocked to at that moment. Very useful.
+ Awesome transfer speed. Was moving a lot of large files around, unzipping things and the likes, and it moved at a really awesome speed.Read more ›
-Quad core Intel with hyperthreading shows up as 8 processors in Windows and Linux. (7.9 score in Windows)
-up to 16GB RAM!(7.9 score in Windows)
-HDMI pretty standard on laptops except for Macbooks (Just sold mine so I could buy this!)
-1GB Video RAM
-Bluetooth 2.1 EDR
-Supports hardware virtualization
-ASUS has one of the best reputations in the motherboard market
-THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE WORKHORSE!
-A little heavy to be carrying around all day
-battery life not that great (buy an extra charger to carry with you)
-keyboard feel is not very good. There is too much flex (spongy) I use a bluetooth keyboard and mouse when at my desk.
This type of power is a must have for IT pros and computer enthusiasts alike. As much as everybody is moving to virtualization and cloud computing this is the perfect tool for your arsenal. Actually, you can virtualize your entire arsenal and carry it with you! I'm not really sure what the other reviewer's problem was. This PC is great. Other comparable laptops I've seen go for $2000-$6000.
The only reason I posted a comment in the first place was because I had purchased the machine and was amazed at how much I got for such a cheap price (relatively.) When I went online to see what people were saying about this machine the only comment I found was from the first reviewer that gave it 2 stars which I thought was absurd, inaccurate, and unfair. I never said the overall Win score was 7.Read more ›
The screen is beautiful, the silver finish is GORGEOUS.
The ONLY thing I hate about this computer is the keyboard. It's flexy and spongy and cheap feeling. If you are picky about keyboards, then search somewhere else. This one bothers me. But, I guess, not really enough to send it back, because everything else is perfect with the laptop. Argh! Please, Asus, stick with quality keyboards and light them up!! That would be perfect.
I use my laptop for photo and video editing. Also some graphic design with Adobe Illustrator. I've got Photoshop and Sony Vegas installed and they run fast and perfectly. This laptop is a work horse!!
Update: I have had this laptop for a few weeks now and I had to come back and say that I love the keyboard now. I got used to it and it feels great now. Maybe it was just me before. LOL. I LOVE this laptop!!!
This laptop has the power of a high-end workstation and actually can cost you less. If you're looking for power on the go or small foot print for the mentioned applications this is a must-have. Asus is a top-notch motherboard manufacture and contrary to one review here I thought it also looked great out-of-the-box.
no need in the mentioning the specs but they say it all.
all the junk software that was preinstalled...
