Exceded my expectations.
on December 9, 2011
This laptop has exceded my expectations. It initially impresses with solid build quality and it looks like a stealth fighter. Nothing about the laptop feals cheap. There is litte to no flex around the keyboard. Top quality craftsmanship. When you turn the laptop on it is whisper quiet and the screen is amazing. Even under load this laptop is very quiet. Asus has done an amazing job with the cooling system. The color, brightness and clarity of the HD screen rivals my macbook pro (2009). The laptop comes preloaded with a lot of software so you need to spend some time removing programs you do not want. When on, the laptop is quick and stable. The video card tears through games (BF3, WOW, SWTOR). I purchased a Sager Np8170 with similar specs before buying this laptop. The Sager is based on a clevo case. The screen, quality of build, noise level, and performance of this laptop is on a different level from what I just returned. In conclusion, I am very impressed with this product.
