Performance

I am a freelance interactive developer. Whenever I need to shop for a new machine I like to get laptops considering that I usually end up at one of my local coffee shops to do work for my clients. This Asus laptop handles any of my work tasks effortlessly. I am surprised that it is slightly lighter in weight than my previous gaming laptop (Gateway FX series). I am highly recommending this laptop to anybody that works in the interactive design business or is a hardcore gamer looking for a solid machine that can have all of the visual game options cranked up and still provide great performance. I would not recommend this laptop if you are somebody looking to use it unplugged for longer periods of time. It has a short window of time while unplugged (1-2.5 hours depending on applications running).

Great laptop.

by A customer on 12/3/2010

I've had it for about four months now and it's still amazing. I use it for gaming and design. It definitely has the power to run anything on max. I'm using this as a desktop replacement and don't really lug it around too much. Too heavy for that. Still, the portability with power is nice should you need it but the battery really only lasts like an hour or two if you turn everything down. Read More
