Expert review by : Daniel S. Evans (



If you're looking for a laptop that you could use both to run Adobe CS4 apps and to watch movies on a cross-country flight, you could do a lot worse than the ASUS N81Vp-C1.

Good multimedia functionality. Lots of RAM and power for high-end applications like Photoshop CS4. Plenty of ports.

Small screen size. Shiny bezel and buttons attract fingerprints.

Excellent cooling system ; Fast processor and GPU stuffed inside a 14.1" chassis ; Good build quality ; More ports than most 17" notebooks

Battery life isn't that good with its high-end configuration

ASUS includes a couple freebies with the purchase of the N81Vp, including a USB mouse and basic computer case. The mouse isn't all that great, but it is free, portable, and works just fine if you are in a pinch. The free case is very basic and provides...
