It's an amazing machine for the price (currently $450) I've been following your progress with yours. Was I also reading your exploits over at notebookreview?

You've got some cool youtube vids, arrowslinger!
I just saw your post on SDs, so chiming in as a 2week owner!
The only games I've installed on it so far were Deus Ex and Dirt 3. Dirt 3 really kicks the fan speed up on this laptop and reaches temperatures of 70+ C with mild overclocking P0 1.9ghz to B0 2.4ghz. I've also installed all my favorite emulators - Mame, Misfits, Gamecube, SegaDreamcast, N64, Snes, and AdvanceGameBoy. Most of those are handled by the 6520 card, while the SegaDC, and maybe the Gamecube & N64 may be tapping into the 6650 card. So pretty happy about using this machine as a Budget Gamer.

Also love using media classic player with coreavc codec in playing x264 mkv movies and tv shows! So handles well as a media center pc. To get 5.1 or better audio, we will need a soundcard--> something like this below since it's windows 7 64 compatible :
Code:
http://www.amazon.com/Sewell-USB-SoundBox-Sound-Card/dp/B004Y0ERRO
--probably my next purchase for this.

So this is a really great system! I chose this system primarily because of the price and being able to return it to the retail store. (Still can't find anything better for $450 or less!). Can't go wrong with the ASUS name brand.

I am very very much considering this laptop. I really want it, but I need to convince wifey I need it lol. This is by far the best bang for buck.

Anyone else not able to get this shipped? Tried online and wasn't available to be shipped to me or a store near me. Called up the store and they said that it might be because a new line is coming out soon. Anyone know about this new line and if it will have the same price/performance of this one?

A lot are in search of it seems the southern states got most of them SC, FL, NC, AL, etc. are showing available in the store.

If you know or can sweet talk a rep at best buy they may can get you one from the other stores?
