Originally looking at a Mac 13, I realized that 13 inches is too small but a 15 inch is too heavy. Not to mention to get 8GB and a video card you need to spend 1700 on a juiced up macbook pro 15 with an i5 processor. So this is where the u46 excels. It is 14 inches on a 13 inch frame computer (1 inch thick), with 8GB of RAM, and Nvidia Gefore 540M card. All for $860. It has an i5 processor which makes short order of anything in the real of 95% of all consumer needs including gaming. If you are done something really specific, ok, look somewhere else, but for most of us an i5 processor with 8G RAM and a medium class video card is plenty. It is thin and light (although battery does have a weird hump at the end) and it can be moved easily. Battery life is great although keep in mind tht 10 hours is on low performance. Screen is really nice, and a main concern for me - its resolution is plenty. My biggest complaint is the speakers which, in technical terms, suck. Really really suck. So inconsistent with an otherwise awesome package. I highly recommend this machine for the bargain that it is, the good looks and thin frame, as well as solid performance. Are there better machines, probably, but they would be more expensive, thicker, and in the case of many manufacturers, ugly too. If the video card is a concern, get this machines, the Nvidia 540M is a good enough card to play modern games at this laptops at native resolution.

I am very happy with it. This is the one to buy if you want some gaming power inside a 13 inch chasis and long battery life. Overall, very good value indeed.

Pros:
Plenty of raw power to run my favorite games
Small and thin chasis
Long battery life
High quality material
Bright screen
Amazing keyboard
Good looking and feel of metal

Cons:
Build could be better
Speaker sucks, really really sucks

It is my first Asus. I am really looking forward to Asus' high reliability, if it happens. Oh, do not forget to get an SATA III SSD for it.

I never had any problems with HP. That laptop lasted me a long freaking time.

This Asus laptop is amazing. I love the small size and the texture of the outside makes it look really cool. There are few problems with this computer, but a couple I think are definitely worth noting.

The speakers/sound SUCKS. When the volume is turned up all the way, I can still hardly hear unless the room is absolutely quiet. I usually just resort to earbuds.

The bloat-ware is difficult to remove. Some of the programs just don't want to get off my computer and other programs really slow it down. I spent a lot of time clearing out stuff I didn't need, and there is still stuff on this thing that I haven't been able to figure out.

Other than those things, this laptop has been awesome. I really like it and hope it lasts me a long time.
