Very good laptop. Battery last 5-6 hours using a lot of WiFi, Netbeans IDE, Firefox and other intensive apps. Keyboard sounds fine. Screen is LED. Plastics are good, but aluminum is missed when you open it.
Everything works fine. Asus should develop a script or app to change video card using special button placed at the top left of the keyboard.
