This is a great computer - fast and powerful, inexpensive and a great free accidental damage warranty!

Pros:
Full HD screen, fast videocard, good processor.
There's a rubberized palmrest which is a nice touch, and the bloatware is kept to a minimum (There are a lot of icons on the desktop, though). Fast (free) shipping! It starts fast, and has a huge hard drive.

Cons:
The first time you start the computer, it takes about 20 minutes to configure the desktop. Odd partitioning scheme, but not detrimental. The fast videocard is hot, idle around 68-72, under load it seems to want to stay at 88 (nvidia max is 105-110?). Leaves the palmrest a little hot.

Other: Seems I got a defective unit, amazon returns are so quick and easy, I'm upping my rating of this to 5 due to customer service!

I purchased this laptop as a replacement for my desktop and yes it definitely qualifies as a good replacement since my desktop is about 3 years old. The seller for me was the fact the screen can display 1920x1080 and it had between a middle of the road to powerful graphics card, all packed into a 15.6" screen. So its portable enough that my shoulders won't give out after lugging it across the country. I use to own a 17.1" laptop and it was a boat anchor and try finding a notebook bag for a 17.1".. good luck!

Pros:
* Power for the price
* Great graphics card
* Glad to see 4 USB ports

Cons:
* Speakers are weak. I have used several IBM thinkpads and Lenovo business laptops even the lower end and they sound way better than the Asus speakers
* As would any laptop its gets extremely hot especially when you attempt to game
* I never bothered figuring out Asus's partitioning and recovery image, so I wiped it and started clean
* Camera which I don't bother using, can't figure out why it doesn't work. None of the documentation that came shipped with it shows the how to get it working... but then again I hate reading manuals

Overall: I would definitely recommend this laptop for people that do photography like to edit their pictures or a gamer, not that I'm a gamer.. ok I lie a light gamer.

Pros:
->Really good looking laptop.
->Lots of different ports like eSata which can be very handy if you have another hard drive.
->Great performance for gaming, I tried supreme commander 2 and it really fluid, no lag.
->There was no drivers from Nvidia when I bought it but now they are out on the Nvidia website(Makes a difference in performance for the latest games).
->The battery life is ok, no complain or anything about it.
->Webcam has a good resolution for Windows live messenger and skype.
->Good processing speed.
->Not to big, not too small, really good balance between size, performance and price.

Cons:
->Buyers of this product need to know that this laptop is a bit heavy, probably because of the video card and the 7200rpm hard drive.
->The screen is just a bit small for the 1080p but still good.
->Lots of stuff preinstalled on the laptop, I suggest you format it to get rid of all this(that's what I did).
->No windows 7 Home Edition DVD(Not suprised...)

I'm really satisfied of this laptop, suits my needs of gaming, programming and mobility. It was not too expensive either. Worth buying if you're looking for a gaming laptop and don't want to put too much money on it.

I bought this laptop for games and multimedia as a replacement of a desktop that I could take with me in a trip. I appreciate very much the video side in general and the power management system. If not used in "high performance" mode, it runs cooler than many laptops I have tried. A little heavy, but I think it is inherent to gaming destination of this laptop. I recommend it as a good value.
