Just an update, 6 months into owning this laptop and not a single problem has arose. I run this laptop for 5+ hours a day hard with classes, work, and multimedia projects. I will update as events unfold.
Another update for everyone. It is may 3rd 2012 and this laptop is still exceeding my expectations. I have put this machine through quite the workout since I have had it. I have done quite a bit of graphic intensive gaming, countless hours of Microsoft Word and Excel for courses, digital and graphic designing, and made the mistake of splashing water on my laptop while working with my 55 gallon aquarium. I even use this laptop at work where I do product and market research because it still outperforms the new Dell desktops we purchased in October of 2011. I put a HP laptop through a similar workout prior to purchasing this laptop and managed to burn it out in nine months. No signs of slowing down for this quality made ASUS machine. (Please note that I have a Targus cooling pad that I use while gaming in order to lower the heat damage done by gaming)
I hope I provided an unbiased and helpful review. Good luck shopping and as always, have a great day.
Luckily my PC got here and let me tell You, I could not be more satisfied with it.
I saw one negative review below mine, but I don't seem to have any problems with my Asus,as a mater of fact I'm very suprised how sleek and elegant it is - just beautiful :)
I love the hardware in it and how everything runs at amazing speed, older games and programs have get a new flair.
Edit: I just started playing Battlefield 3. To all those saying laptops aren't for gaming, I say - eat this..... this laptop plays most new games on High detail. Before mentioned Battlefield 3 runs great!!! I rarely get less than 30FPS in MP on combination of High/Medium with 30-60 ppl playing, 75% of the time FPS is high 30s to high 40s, when flying it goes to 50-60.
This is a great laptop and exceeds my biggest expectations when tackling games or few other CPU/GPU hungry programs opened at once. The GT540M is a mid-range GPU, but can really handle more than most people expect. Playing NFS:Shift or World, GTA4 on highest with GPU hungry mods gives 35-70 for NFSs, 30-40 for GTA4 and the GPU never gets hotter than 82*C which is great if You want overclock it. I suggest swapping the cheap Hynix 2GB RAM chip and getting the Kingston Valu-RAM 4GB 1333MHz chip instead though.
The only thing I don't like about it is that DVD does not record and I can't make Win7 images on DVDs - I have the same problem with my Toshiba laptop - also, it comes without a recovery DVD, so in case the OS requires re-install I'll have to shell out additional money, but considering I paid $698 for a PC worth $850 - $950, I guess I'm still on the track.
SOLVED: I just got a $40 Flash drive and don't have to worry about the system, so scratch that........
Great product, buy, buy, buy, before the price goes up!
