I love this computer. Super fast, super cool, I create music with no glitching or skipping. Graphics and display are top notch to me. As far as better hard drive go'es They might not have wanted to add the 7200rpm due to added heat. and the upgrade of speed is mila seconds to seconds so it's no big deal. You're not supposed to always shut down your computer so once every 3 months if I have to wait for my system to lead oh well. Crying over 5 seconds lol no thanks. It opens from sleep mode in about 1 second. Unless you have always bought the latest $5000 dollar computer you are not going to notice any nagitives with this laptop!!! Also I never hear a sound from the fan ect. As for graphics card I have played some games that look amazing compared to my last laptop (witch is only 15 months old) but have not played many to give a real review. Keyboard feels great and smooth. The hole look and finish of this notebook I give a 9 out of 10. In closing if you're just the average person you will love this laptop. I do more then the average person would do and I love it!! Hope I help someone Thanks: BangEmBeatz Productions
i have purchased one..... and after working on it for 20 days, i will not recommend it ... A dual core without "i" series processor with only 1-2 GB RAM gave a better performance in day-to-day computing... Was able to play only NFS 2010, so, can't comment about gaming performance...
Do you think it would be worth spending $200-400 for the MSI GE60 with similar overal specs but with GTX 660M graphics card and full 1080p Reso. One thing I'm worried about is if i upgrade to the MSI GE60 its quality case build could be worse than the k55vm case build. Heres a link to the MSI GE60 maybe if you can help me compare it it would help me greatly with my decisions. Thanks! http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-MSI-GE60-i789W7H-Notebook.77855.0.html
The (ice) cool hot-bloodedness. The Asus K55VM-SX064V is offered by online stores for prices starting at about 840 € - a hefty price for a 15.6 inch notebook. This price puts the expectation very high for things like performance, quality, features and service. We reviewed whether the Asus K55VM-SX064V can meet the expectations.
