Asus NX90JQ-A1


Dual touchpads has never been done on a laptop until now. Obviously, they'll take a while to get accustomed to. I can understand why there are two of them, though: Since the designer didn't want the touchpad (with the mouse buttons) in the usual spot,...

Huge side-mounted speakers. Amazing sound quality. A fast quad-core processor. Vibrant 18.4-inch widescreen. 1080p resolution. Good graphics performance. Blu-ray drive included

Polished aluminum has mirror-like characteristics. Heavy and awkward-looking. Insanely expensive

The pair of Bang & Olufsen ICEpower speakers on the Asus NX90JQ-A1 is unlike anything you've seen on a laptop and targets serious audiophiles.

buyer beware


BEWARE. After contacting Asus I was instructed to send it in for repair re: audio.(I had only owned it for just over a month). I was told I would have my laptop back within 14 days. I was sent a fedex prepay which did not include insurance. I had to...

good for knocking out a mugger (incredibly heavy)

The audio quality on this laptop is horrible. Customer service is even worse

Great notebook for the traveling professional.


My search for a new notebook came shortly after I returned from a business trip where I experienced major problems using LogMeIn to connect to my desktop back at the office (I was using my personal notebook and didn't sync the two...and why should...

According to Intel, this processor can handle up to 16GB of RAM...the only problem is when I use online memory scanners they show a limit of 8GB. On the ASUS website, 8GB is listed under the specifications

Slow but expected


Overall good laptop for the money. I've been using mine for 6 months now and it does everything I need it to do. People need to understand that if you buy a budget laptop it's not going to have the speed or computing ability of a more expensive laptop....

Price, upgradeable

Slow, Speaker quality poor

Pricey performance & portability.


Overall I would absolutely recommend this product to any one of my friends and coworkers. Lightning fast (6.4 WEI, not too shabby at all), and extremely lightweight. If you're thinking about buying one, stop thinking and start doing. You won't be...

Unmatched performance vs. portability. Boot/resume times are incredible. Love the addition of Windows 7 Professional (although it should be included at this price)

It's a pricey laptop to be sure, but worth every penny. The biggest problem I have with it is how flimsy the keyboard feels (and the fact that it isn't backlit. Power management is good, but I am not getting the advertised 8-hour battery life

item is super slow


I bought this item from hhgregg at the black friday sale. The computer is super slow. You can click on links and icons numerous times and they will not open. It just sits and nothing happens. Don't waste your money.
