Apart from the Display size, it seems like a good deal there.

Try having a look at what MSI might be offering as they are competely heavily with Asus in the laptop market.

Looks good... the monitor is small, but the slightly lower-end GPU makes up for that...

It's good, but it's no Mac

It looks to be solid for gaming, not a crysis killer or anything, but you knew that. It'll play games well I'm sure.

i dont want a huge screen especially if i have to take it to every city i goto!
Plus i checked out the benchmarks and its pretty good for a laptop.
I think it beats the 9600gt ...and it'll be able to play all the recent games in med-high settings.

I'm gonna keep an eye out on this till i get money to buy it.
It fits my budget plus i havnt seen a nother laptop with this size or smaller that has a good cpu/gpu combo!

Thanks guys!
