Asus M60J

 

Core i7 is here in mobile form. Some vendors will be attempting to rush these laptops out as close to the Windows 7 launch as possible. Keep an eye out — looks like the season to upgrade is well and truly upon us.

Asus M60J review

 

Sporting Intel's finest new Core i7 processor, can the turbo-charged Asus M60J laptop sprint past the opposition?

Pricey, but the lightening Core i7 performance is worth it, even if it does have a slight hit on battery life

By far the best laptop I have ever owned

ASUS Laptops are poor quality

 

Bought an ASUS ROG laptop...Had issues with over heating with thermal shutdown. RMA once, told me it was fixed, 3 months later I had the same problem. Tried to RMA again, was told warranty was expired. I had to pay a repair shop to get the problem...

Exactly what I needed, but not for everyone

 

This is a powerful gaming system, but it is heavy and bulky, and battery life is only about 3 hours in active use. Think of it as a folding all-in-one desktop rather than a notebook. I love it so far, but size and weight were not priorities for me.

very good laptop for the price
