I purchased the asus n61jq-b2(blue ray version) and was very unhappy when I couldn't open any programs out of the box without the system freezing up on me! I tried everything from removing blote-ware, to moving the few files (pictures and music) that I put on the C drive along with the OS, to the D drive which was empty. that did not fix the issue, I finally reformated the C drive and re-installed the Windows 7 OS. now this computer is running like a dream. I have a desktop with intel q6700and 4g of 800 mhz ram to compare it with and it is faster. dont know what caused the problem, but the reinstall saved me from returning the unit. this laptop also came with 1333mhz ram not the posted 1066mhz. just a little bonus. It also runs very cool compared to my old hp laptop. I am very happy with my purchase and impressed with the new intel i7-740QM. 5 stars for the money. and one last thing. Don't let the brown color scare you, it can pass as black.

After uninstalling most of the Asus bloatware and using TuneUp utilities 2011, the first thing I did was make the 500GB HDD so it wasn't partitioned into 2 drives of 150 and 350. Contrary to another reviewer's opinion (who thinks you get two different HDD drives) you CAN change this format by doing the following:

1) Press start, go to computer, right click mouse over computer selection, then select (left click) manage
2) That gets you to the computer management dialog box
3) Then on the left column, click on Disk Management (Under Storage)
4) On Disk 0, Do NOT Touch the 19.53 GB PRIMARY Partition as this contains your recovery and installations files
5) On the 350GB partition, right click on it, and click on delete volume after you move anything you want to keep.
6) On this same partition, right click again, and click on format.
7) Then on the 150GB partition with the OS on it, right click on it and select Extend Volume.
8) Magically you now have your OS on the whole 500 GB HDD which means your machine will work much faster and you will avoid the blue screens of death and crashes mentioned elsewhere because the OS will have the necessary room on the full 500GB HDD to do it's work.

This machine is lightning fast when you do all three things mentioned above, or as my wife states it is supersonic fast. I bought mine through Costco.com for more money (at the MSRP) and for the financing, but I get lifetime technical support through their Concierge Services and they helped me do the above because I knew it could be done but I was unfamiliar with Windows 7 at the time of getting this laptop. Now when I need more space, I will connect a

Model: N61JQ-B2 Verified Purchase
I bought this laptop for my mom, who is elderly and not at all computer savvy. I wanted her to have a reliable machine for internet, email, skype, and watching DVDs that was robust enough not to become obsolete in a year. I usually buy my computers from Velocity Micro, but their notebooks were out of my mom's price range. I was considering the Sony Vaio, but friends told me they'd had trouble with it breaking, and several people recommended Asus. It had most of the features I wanted at an affordable price. I did re-format the drive as suggested by Dennis Hoyer, and removed a lot of bloatware.

So far, so good, though we've only had it about a week, so I can't comment on reliability or customer support. We always use it plugged-in as well. UPS lost our first order, but Amazon was very good about sending out a replacement via Fedex.

Some minor issues:
-Shiny surface: attracts fingerprints and dust (this drives me crazy!)
-Shiny screen: my mom complained of seeing her reflection while watching a movie (yes, she really should watch them on the TV, but she doesn't)
-Keyboard isn't backlit: this would have been a big help for my mom, who has poor vision
-No Microsoft Office: I just removed the trial version and installed Sun's OpenOffice
-Bloatware - not the worst I've seen, but I wish you could order a clean version

Pros:
-fast enough for basic apps (I would NOT recommend it for gaming, but why would you game on a laptop?)
-built-in webcam and microphone
-slim and fairly lightweight

I have seen reviews saying this is not a great machine. I have not had 1 problem, at all. Yes there is a lot of bloat on it, but once removed and the partitions joined, it is a great computer especially for the price. The screen is clear, movies and games play flawlessly and applications run like a champ. I would reccomend this to anyone. Sound is great along with speed.

I use to love ASUS however, they have changed my love to hate with their customer service. I have bought many asus products however, after this I will not buy another one this is like my 5th notebook/netbook,I wish their customer service was better. If you dont want to deal with the customer service then just look else where.
I wish I could love but this relationship is abuse. ASUS is abusive to their customers, dont believe me just google it or something
good luck hope this helps
