they're pretty good. I wouldn't rate them as highly as ASUS but they're the third largest manufacturer of PC's so they're doing something right. and they really give you a lot for your money.

Well I ended up finding this laptop used, was wondering what you guys could tell me about it.

Asus g50v
15.6" WXGA Color-Shine (Glare-type)
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P7450 @ 2.13GHz 2.13GHz
Mobile Intel® PM45 Express Chipset +ICH9M
Genuine Windows 7® Ultimate,
Installed Memory (RAM) : 4.00 GB
NVIDIA® GeForce® 9800M GS External 512MB GDDR3 VRAM - Total Available Graphics Memory: 2303
320GB,5400rpm;7200rpm
DVD Super Multi Light Scribe

From what I could find it looks like its like a three year old model, but I was wondering how that processor stacks up.

C2D is old crap. You'd be better off with an i3.
