That laptop is a beast !

For those who worry about it, the keyboard is US-type (NOT Quebec, so no accents), and as for the OS, you can choose one language (French, English, Spanish, Italian and maybe others but not sure) at windows first startup, but windows tells you that you won't be able to change afterwards.

As for the heat, well... none so far. We tested the blueray reader for 3 hours (lord of the rings extended edition !!!) and after the movie, the computer was still cold. We also tested a bit of online gaming (Aion, with graphics settings on "high") for a few hours, and still no heat. There was a tad of warmth localized towards the processor after more than 5 hours, but not hot at all. We ran a simultaneous installation of mathlab and a virtual ubuntu oneiric, and the computer remained cold and functional the whole time.

Noise : none. The fans make a very very soft whoosh that can't even manage to cover my upper neighbour's snoring (and I'm getting the snoring trough the ceiling...), or my fridge (which is in another room) for that matter. The disk reader does not make sound either.

Sound : there has been complains that the sound is not loud enough. I agree the maximum output from the speakers is not loud. But it is ok. I am hearing impared, I watched the whole movie with the internal speakers only (at maximum volume) and that was ok. Sure enough, you'll never wake up your whole street with these speakers, but the sound is sufficient. And the sound quality is excellent. If you really want to make the walls shake, you just have to buy a good sound system, and the sound card of the asus will deliver that in high quality for you.

Purchased this for my gaming requirements. This one is a devourer. Throw anything at it and it can handle it.

Works good, but ASUS doesn't support their laptop's at all.... slow updates and lacking updates. I am one of the luck ones that had no issues (other than the touch pad), as other users had horrible RMA experiences. HORRIBLE TOUCH PAD, definitely the worst in the industry, most of the times it wouldn't work... those who RMA'd had the same results so I never bothered, its a hardware issue, its just bad)...... 3 stars is more than generous
