Hello all you guys, I just wanna have your suggestions and recommendations about this laptop: http://www.asus.com/Notebooks/...../#overview I'm planning to buy a decent laptop for home and school usage that will ensure better productivity on my educational usage. I do some sorts of Computer Programming and other graphics editor software. Will this laptop runs Photoshop and Illustrator CS5? Has anyone used this laptop before? I want to heed for your advise guys if this laptop is good or not. Thanks

Yeah that laptop is kinda bit have small screen. Also it has a NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 520M Graphics card and RAM is upgradable to 8GB.. I'm looking for a okay price with good specs and usability laptop because my budget is $500- $700. Maybe you could suggests any alternative laptops that is on my budget range. Thanks!
Great specs, but I'll try to see if that laptop is available here on our local computer shop. Though the price is not actually the same because they charge a lot for a installment plans + the tax in our country. By the way have you ever used Asus laptop before? If yes does Asus laptops are durable ? does it produce heat to much?
The only Asus product I ever owned was a netbook and, while it was running just fine when I retired it after two years, the wires in the hinge going to the screen were wearing out and I was having trouble getting the screen positioned just right to keep the display from breaking up. I suspect the netbooks aren't as well made as the laptops since Asus does have a good reputation.
One brand I can tell you to stay far, far away from is Acer. Everything I've owned from them (two netbooks, one desktop, one mouse and a keyboard) were pieces of...better suited for making grass grow. Another one is HP. HP is notorious for abandoning products and their customer support is useless as feathers on a frog.
Going by what LadyFitzgerald says about Acer, maybe not such a good choice
"One brand I can tell you to stay far, far away from is Acer. Everything I've owned from them (two netbooks, one desktop, one mouse and a keyboard) were pieces of...better suited for making grass grow"
Try this too:
The quad-core processor is good as some i7's and most i5's (notebook ones), it has dual graphics for better GFX performance and it costs about $700. I use a similar Acer (nah, they're pretty nice) with a slightly lower-end processor, and it runs Photoshop like... well... Bloodhound SSC!
