5.0 out of 5 stars Amazed., August 18, 2012

This review is from: ASUS G55VW-ES71 15.6-Inch Gaming Notebook (Black) (Personal Computers)
I got this product about 5 days ago, and although it has been a short period of time, I have just been amazed with the performance of it. I am going to make a pro/con list and write a review.
Pros-
High resolution
Insanely fast for gaming
A nice screen
Back lit keyboard
Quiet and cool
Desktop like keyboard
Battery life
Track pad (not a great one coming from an ex mac user, but it is a pretty good one for not being Apple)
Speed
Speed
Easy use
USB 3.0
Design and Finish

There is probably more that I am missing, but I love it. Not every computer is perfect so here are some cons

Cons-
Space bar squeaks after a few days
Sound is awful
Sound at first is too loud (adjust it by right clicking and clicking Volume control panel)
Weight (this thing is heavy)
Microphone had buzzing sound all the time (again fixed by lowering the microphone boost.)
Start up times are a bit slow (I want an SSD, but need my memory)

Review
So I got this computer after deciding not to build my own gaming rig for about the same price. I don't think I made a mistake. I am an ex mac user, and as much as I loved macs, I was getting too little for too much, which is why I chose an i7 and a gtx 660 over an i5 and some crappy graphics card. This thing is pure power, and you can move it with ease. Although it is heavy, when you have something this powerful, the things got to go somewhere. Don't have too much to review because you can see everything above, but I really love this computer and would recommend it to anyone.
