"Would never Buy another Asus."0.5 starson by PhantomsDoc
Pros: Looks nice and the spec's read well.
Cons: Pretty much everything else. Screen not the nicest, audio leave a lot to be desired considering the hype.
My P4 desktop with 320Gb video card plays games better, faster hand higher resolution than this I7.
Davzway has it totally right.
Summary: My Laptop is 3 years old, treated very well and little used.
I only use it when sick or away from home as I still prefer the desktop I bought the Asus to replace.
The Asus has been very well looked after and seldom used. I pull it out from time to time to run down and recharge the battery to keep it healthy.
However, after using it the other night (on a side table), hibernating it and removing the power it wouldn't start up in the morning. It looks like the motherboard has died. It has power but won't even get to the bios start.
3 years and it has become a very expensive paperweight. My old Acer (which I had before this I had given to the mother-in-law) is what I ended up using. It is 7 year old and cost me half the price of the Asus and is still going strong.
Backup and support in New Zealand leaves an awful lot to be desired.
After my experience with this Asus I'll never buy another Asus product, ever.
