I've bought it for just 950€ last Christmas and I'm glad every day of the choice I've made!
So, Let me just brag a little about my new machine! It has a intel centrino duo, T9400, with 2, 53 Ghz CPU, a 15.4 inch with LED light, a 320GB hard drive, 4 GB of ddr2 RAM, and (the cherry on top of the cake) a Geforce 9650m GT graphic board, with 1GB of dedicated RAM!
Past all the technical stuff, let me say the most important characteristic of my new laptop:
It is absolutely beautiful! The mirror like casing, the blue led console, the round lines, the Altec Lansing speakers... Truthfully, one of the most beautiful laptops I've ever seen!
So, what can it do? Well, ask yourself, what it cannot do!
It's great for work, with the complete and large keyboard and number pad, sensitive mouse pad, comfortable ergonomics for the wrists, I can do all the college work in this beauty with the minimum effort possible!
It's great for playing movies and DVD, since it has HD vision technology from ASUS, great speakers, and all the things you need to enjoy a good evening with your friends watching the latest movie! Except for the maximum resolution being 1280x800, this is a flawless laptop to play movies!
Now, the most important part of my laptop life, the games! There isn't a game it can't play, GTA IV, Crysis, COD, Red Alert 3, you name it! Great frame rates, fluid game play, no breaks, a dream to play on!
The battery life is great, I've worked on it for up to 3 hours without a problem, and if it wasn't so bulky it could easily compete with all the netbooks out there!
So, this was one of the best buys I've ever made, and would happily recommend it to anyone looking for a great laptop with a even better price!
