My biggest beef with this machine is the 18 (EIGHTEEN) shortcuts I found on my desktop when I booted up. All flavors of crapware that I don't want and don't need that include a 90 day subscription to Trend Micro Anti-Virus which MaximumPC magazine rated as the WORST AV package on the market in their May 2010 edition. Now I know that doesn't mean much, but its disquieting when the defacto Hardware Champion of the entire computer industry (IMO) loads up a new machine with a truckload of unrecognizable garbageware like Splendid Utility and AP Bank, among others I've never heard of and don't have any use for. Oh well, while cleaning all this junk out of my HD I also noticed the boot time is right at 4 minutes, that's with the included utility Asus Fast Boot engaged. Sheesh!!!
On the upside, the display is bright and crisp and the graphics are amazing. And, the real good news here....there are two open DIMM slots so you can easily upgrade to 8Gig of system memory and hopefully improve the performance of this machine. Not a fan of the chicklet keyboard either, and you will find it almost impossible to navigate in the dark.
Very disappointed in Asus, and ya know it would have been nice to get a media player that's compatible with the Blu-Ray drive but alas....Read more ›
processor (the I7 laptops seeming to all for for at
least $300 more) and one with a blu ray drive. Also,
I do NOT like the shiny surfaced laptops where you
leave fingerprints and smears all over -- this one is
shiny on the outside but they use a matte finish where
you rest your hands so fingerprints really aren't an
The laptop feels well built and looks very nice without
being flashy. I love the keyboard, with the keys spaced
apart from each other a bit. No place for crumbs to drop
in :P The screen is very clear and bright. It boots up
quickly and runs all my programs on it quickly.
I can't speak for battery life as I usually always run with
the power cord plugged in. As for gaming, I use it mostly
for work and running Office 2007 on it and for browsing, so
I can't say how well it will do with gaming, although I would
think it would be pretty good.
My only complaints would be the speakers don't go up very loud
and don't sound the best -- but what laptop speakers ever do?
And I would like to go up a little higher on the screen resolution-
1366x768 being the maximum resolution in Windows 7.
But overall I am quit pleased with my purchase, especially for
the excellent price.
When I originally decided to buy a laptop, I thought I wanted a netbook - something lighter, thinner and more portable. But the ASUS has so much more power and nice specs for several hundred dollars less than than any of the netbooks. And frankly, I bought this ASUS because two non-commissioned salespersons at Office Max simply raved and raved about the company and the quality of their US-Made parts and assembly. They both drooled at this model on the shelf and referred to it as the "dream machine" they'd choose. I know I broke the heart of one of them when I bought it. This was the last one they had in stock. I, too, love the brushed metal textured body and touchpad. I'm a messy typist. I also bought a silicone keyboard cover and screen cover. Unfortunately, this model is way too nice (and big) for me to trust putting in my bike messenger bag and taking to school.... But that's okay.
Freeware and trial software installed all over the desktop is a minor problem. I'm sure all the partnerships help with lowering the cost ASUS charges-- so okay.Read more ›
