I am not really a fan of Laptops because I don't have a need for one.. would rather have a smart phone or Slate but this seems pretty cool I guess, in terms of features.

I wonder what kind of pump they use to get the video to the TV. :bounce:

Great specs, especially the battery life. My wife's Asus G72 only has about an hour and a half. Still rereading for a MSRP.

I have Asus G51 laptop, 2 Asus motherboards, and an Asus sound card. I have yet to see a failure in my components. Asus has a great warranty coverage. That is what all good companies should do--protect and give satisfaction to the customer, not steal money off the crappy service like Dell or HP.

$899

All I can say is I want one. Now where can I find $900?

Too bad I just bought a UL80VT. It seems like this is it's heir. Not that I am upset with the UL80VT, it is an amazing "do-everything" laptop with an AMAZING battery life. This looks like another win for ASUS.

That's all this machine gets? Tom's?
Compare this to the myriad of iPad articles/day and you'll realize why people call you biased.
How about a comparison review against one of the imacs. Yeah, fat chance for that to happen.

Awesome specs from an excellent manufacturer.

The articles indicates the notebook is for casual gamers. That pretty much sums it up.

Tom's like any other news website's primary goal in articles is the draw in readers. iPad articles draw in viewers, which = more money for the site. Unfortunately, articles on good products like this don't.

Think about it this way, is large numbers of American's watched CSPAN the general population would actually understand why congress is gridlocked and what the Health care bill actually says. However, good luck getting them to change channels from the mindlessness that is American Idol or Dancing with the Stars.

How can you play with such a crappy card as the rebranded GT310/GT210/9400GT.

Put an Ati and make the right decision.

Really? Because if ATI has come out with its own technology that rivals Optimus, I'd like to hear about it.

My m11x plays Crysis pretty well. From looking at the review of this on notebookreview.com, the 'short' I got of it, slower GPU (310M vs 335M), faster CPU (i3 vs SU7300), battery life(8 hrs), but the main thing 3dmark06 (3706 versus 5447 for my m11x) -- probably plays Crysis but with choppiness.
