Great little machine works fast on i5 processor however in todays world a memory of 8 gb would really suit the bill. The construction is robust,i use it as a desktop replacement so weight is not really an issue for me. The screen is sharp and clear and the bd disc player is great for watching movies. All in all i am very happy with the purchase.
Good but not as fast as i thought. Like the design and feel of the machine, and the keyboard layout is better than reviewed here. It seems quite well built but it is early days yet. Only concern is the initial set up, back up disks and then the windows software updates that have taken nearly 7 hrs to download due to low speed local lines. Processor speed is quick but not as quick as i would have thought an i7 machine would be. Nonetheless a good start as this machine will be worked hard during my working day and played hard at night. It will have to last 3 years at least like my samsung r711 did.

I’ve been through a few laptops in the 15′ range recently, and found them all lacking in one area or other. This asus has really won me over. So far it has been one of those pieces of technology that inspires feelings of respect and affection through it’s sheer reliability and consistent performance. It just hasn’t let me down, and every time i open it up it is a pleasure to work with something so fit for purpose. It is a little larger than some 15’s, and it is plastic all around, but the plastics are good quality and the ergonomics are just fantastic. I’ve had aluminum laptops with sharp, sleek lines that have destroyed my wrists, this on the other hand stays comfortable for hours of typing. The speakers are a standout victory, easily the best laptop speakers i have ever heard. The included subwoofer makes all the difference.
Best budget gaming machine. . Very nice all round laptop which plays the latest games very well. Cooling is also good as the vent is quite large on the side. The only issue about this machine for me is the hard rive is a little slow, maybe i’m being unfair as i’m used to a ssd machine.
Bang for the bucks, good audio, good screen, good preformance and battery life. The laptop seems sturdy and the casing is good quality. The little subwoofer is really cute as well.
