Good performance, Dedicated graphics
Overall, the Asus is a superb gaming laptop. With the Blu-ray drive, it betters the Alienware 17 (its top competitor), but both seem expensive compared to other options on the market. A high-end gaming laptop may be a step too far for your wallet. But, if you can afford it, this is a superb buy.
Excellent CPU and graphics performance, relatively cool and quiet
Go buy one, I did. If you're a gamer this is a superb choice. The price is reasonable for what you get, and I personally prefer the ASUS ROG G750's cooling and trackpad to its most direct competitor in price and features, the MSI GT70. In fact, I prefer the keyboard too because the game-centric SteelSeries keyboard design on the MSI doesn't work as well when using the machine for productivity (the Windows button moved to the right side drives me crazy).
Class-leading performance, Multimedia-oriented features
Watching movies on a tablet is well and good, but to get real immersive entertainment, a 15.6-inch laptop with multiple speakers like the Asus N550JV-DB72T is the portable equivalent of a home theater system, plus it also qualifies as a power user system.
Big storage capacity, attractive case, backlit keyboard
The Asus N550JV-CN201H convinces with a decent system and gaming performance. Although the CPU significantly throttles (down to 800 MHz) under full load, you will hardly experience this in practice. The benchmark results are as expected. In addition, the notebook features a bright, contrast-rich and matte IPS display and a big storage capacity and can read Blu-ray disks. The battery life is also appropriate for a notebook with that much performance.
Attractive multimedia laptop with impressive audio and video capabilities
The slow hard drive is a cost-cutting weakness in a laptop costing almost £1000, and leaves it looking expensive in a crowded market. Nonetheless, the N550JV is an attractive multimedia laptop with impressive audio and video capabilities that could make it suited to presentations at work, or entertainment at home.
Everything I want and need for a great price
So, I'm very pleased with this laptop and I think it's a tremendous value in its price range. No regrets on this purchase! Windows 8 is a different story and I'm not crazy about it, but I'm learning to adjust. I would prefer to have Windows 7 which was the best Windows OS to date. Windows 8 is not nearly as bad as many reviewers would have you believe.
Bright, matte Full-HD display with good viewing angles
Overall, Asus has created a well-rounded product, which may attract a large group of buyers at just over EUR 1,000 (~$1250). Apart from some smaller weaknesses here and there, some of which may be attributed to the pre-production status of our test unit, it is not a target for severe criticism, and can be recommended for multimedia enthusiasts.
Strong multimedia performance
The Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD-DB71 adds a speedy 3rd generation Intel Core i7 processor and Nvidia GeForce graphics to the ultrabook formula. What Asus has wrought is the thinnest and lightest 1080p HD power system on the market. It's the ultrabook to buy if you want to get real work done.
Finally, an awesome ultrabook - if you upgrade it
If you are willing to upgrade the HDD and RAM, get this machine - you won't regret it. It's light, it has a beautiful screen, an excellent keyboard, it's very fast, and with the upgrades, it is the nicest laptop that I have ever owned. If you are not willing to upgrade, I would say that you should get a MacBook Air or the Zenbook UX31A (or the Sony Series Z if you are willing to spend more) instead - the SSD makes a huge performance improvement.
Very Quiet for a Gaming Laptop
The G55VW is clearly an improvement over the G53SX, and anyone who is in the market for a 15.6-inch gaming laptop should definitely consider it. However, all would-be owners should also be aware that they're getting a 15-inch laptop that is far heavier than average. The difference in weight compared to the 17-inch G75VW is quite small (3.8 kg vs. 4.35 kg). 15-inch laptops are more commonly found in the 2.5 kg to 3 kg span, so that's quite a bit of extra weight to carry around.
This is simply my first impression of this notebook, i will update later to make sure no problems have arised. This beast has everything you need to take on everyday work, photoshop, gaming, AutoCAD, and it does it flawlessly. The matte black ruberized material used throughout the notebook feels nice and gives you some extra grip and is cool to the touch. The dual fan system keeps everything cool even when you're gaming with it on your lap!
