    After a great deal of personal debate I decided to go with the Asus U35F because of the overall build, less than an inch thick, long run time, and a much stronger processor than you would get in any netbook or culv laptop. After playing with it for a while I would say that for the most part I love this laptop. The build quality very good, the keyboard is better than most and the touch pad is very nice. For those that may be wondering the touchpad is slightly pitted so you can feel when you are on it. I set it up so that a 2-finger tap is a right mouse click and a 3-finger tap closes the active window.
    As for the decision to go without the dedicated plays every type of streaming video file I can throw at it including 1080P youtube videos without a single studder or issue. For those of you that think you are going to find a use for the dedicated graphics I think you are fooling yourselves. There is not much you can't do without it other than play graphic intensive games and you can't really do that with a 310M anyway.

    On the negative side...this is the worst screen I have ever used in terms of vertical viewing angle. I do not exagerate when I say that you have about 10 degrees up or down before you get serious color inversion and whiteout if you are above the screen.

    All in all though since you should generally be directly in front of the screen and I'm sure other screens in this price range are not the best on the market either I would reccomend this laptop to anyone. Overall awesome laptop!

    When I got this thing I was blown away by how thin and attractive it is. It has some weight to it, but just enough to feel durable and expensive. It's the perfect size for me and the battery life is fantastic. I get 6-8 hours depending on how i'm using it. The keyboard is comfortable and the mouse pad is amazing. I love how it's integrated into the palm rest. There are plenty of usb ports and who needs an optical drive anyway?
    I wasn't too thrilled about some of the software it came with (some crappy asus stuff and free games). The only annoying thing is that the screen and glossy plastic around it are dust magnets. I have 3 dogs and there is constantly dog hair stuck to it. Luckily it came with an LCD cleaning cloth.

    ok had this thing for a couple weeks now and i take it everywhere. got rid of all the stupid asus software they included. and i traded microsoft word for openoffice because i am cheap.
    the metal lid and palm rests are constantly covered in fingerprints, which looks stupid, but i don't mind.
    i set it down next to my dad's 17.3" hp and my mom's 15" gateway and it is thinner, sexier, and more professional-looking than both of them. so i am still extremely pleased with it.

    I decided on this model over the dedicated graphics version (u35jt i think). I didn't intend to do gaming or 3d production (and am running Ubuntu, which currently doesn't support the dedicated graphics). I use this notebook for web development, and it performs very well.

    The build quality is great. The thin profile and weight are very pleasant (though not radically different than the iBook this system is replacing). While very thin, the aluminum shell on the outside of the screen seems very sturdy. Heat output seems to be very focussed in the back left side, which makes it relatively comfortable to use on your lap. On a full charge, and without any power saving modifications, Ubuntu reports the battery life at between 6-7 hours (have not tested that though) which seems more that sufficient. While the screen has some issues (see below) the overall color quality and contrast is very good. I'm on my patio late on a sunny day as I write this, and glare isn't really an issue (no more than you'd expect).

    The only true disappointment is the webcam. I don't know if it is a software configuration, or the fact that the notebook screen doesn't put out enough light, but the camera image appears very dark unless you have very good lighting from elsewhere in the room. It is a low-res camera, but with very good lighting, the quality is sufficient for skype, etc. Incidentally, the webcam image is vertically flipped in Ubuntu, and I have not found any system-level fix for this problem (app-specific solutions are available).

    Otherwise, the biggest con of this system is the screen. As others reviewers mention, specifically the limited vertical angle that permits correct viewing.

    I had my eyes on the U35jc model for the Nvidia graphics card and optical drive, but go figure, the moment I raise enough money to buy it it sells out with no promise of returning. Rather than try to wait it out I found this model, no optical drive and no Nvidia. I bought it because I already have an external optical drive (I'm upgrading from an Eeepc, for which one is pretty much absolutely necessary) and I'm not really a gamer, so I figured the Intel HD graphics card would suffice, so long as I could watch 720p t.v. shows and movies.
    I've had it for two weeks now, and I've come to conclusion that I made the right decision, in spite of the few negative reviews that I read. I'd like to take the chance to rebut these reviews.

    Keyboard flex; I'm upgrading from an EeePc, so I may not be the best one to judge in this matter, but I haven't noticed any keyboard flex at all. The chiclet keyboard is very comfortable, although I'm still trying to get used to a full size keyboard instead of a netbook sized one.

    Creaking Frame; I've noticed it. It's incredibly small, barely noticeable, not a big deal.

    Mousepad; It is sensitive, although I use an optical mouse so I don't notice it. If you position your hands correctly on the keyboard, your palms rarely come into contact with the mousepad, maybe once in a blue moon, and if you can't manage that you can just as easily hit fn F9 and turn the mouse off. I have noticed one negative thing about this, though: when you leave the laptop on and the lid closed for several hours, then open it up again, the mousepad goes haywire. I'm assuming it's because the mousepad heats up and begins registering all over the place.
