Pros: Cant complain about gaming performance its great.

Cons: Came shipped with a bad keyboard. 8,I, and K all type random characters when pressed. Installed Skype first thing to make a call and there is a horribly annoying high pitched whine that the other person hears coming from the built in microphone. Did some reading and it seems many models of Asus laptops have this exact same problem and Asus denies any "known" problem on the issue. They suggested doing a restore of the built in recovery... Did not fix the problem obviously since the computer was only used for like 30mins untill this problem was realized. It seems its a problem with the cpu and how it handles power when idle. Theres a registry fix that i tried that works perfectly but turns off cpu idle power management so therefor it will make the computer run hotter and fans run more constant, In turn lowering the life of the computer more than likely. Going to RMA it back now and see if they fix the sound issue but judging from what ive read on other models this will not happen. $1500 laptop and if this problem is not resolved my business will no longer be selling Asus products. I will post back with my results in a few weeks.

Overall Review: For $1500 you think they would have at least checked the keyboard before shipping it out.
