I've owned this notebook for nearly a month now and so far I'm very happy with it. It does everything (movies, games, music listening, even photo editing on photoshop!) with ease. The screen is absolutely beautiful although I'd recommend a anti-glare LCD screen protector if you're not a big fan of the glossy screens. Comes with one of the fastest Centrino 2's in the market (which surprisingly ran quite cool for a 2.8GHz dual-core) complete with 4GB of ram (only 3GB assessable in 32-bit Windows). Also comes with webcam (which can record video and photos) and an air ionizer (a nice little bonus) to help rid the air of harmful particles. The keyboard types good, I also like how Asus fitted a numpad on the very right side. So far, based on my configuration, I've managed to get about 3 hours of usage time with this notebook on a full charge. There are also many power-saving profiles users are able to switch to in order to fit their preferences or they can customize one for maximum performance or prolonged battery life. One thing that disappointed me is so far I cannot figure out how to get the touch media buttons to work with any other media players (like Winamp or iTunes). It only seems to work with Windows Media Center, but who knows, maybe it's subject to change.. Other notes: Came with some extra software that I didn't find useful (maybe others will) but those were easily uninstalled. Also came with a carrying bag, optical mouse, drivers/recovery CDs.. Also the 320GB HDD is split into 2 partitions (1 for the OS and 1 for storage). Finally, the OS installed is Vista 32-bit BUT you can complete the Asus Windows 7 upgrade offer (which ends 01/31/10) to get a free windows 7 upgrade. Overall, a very affordable, high performing and well-rounded notebook thanks to Asus..
