    The ASUS N56VZ-RH71 is by far the best bang for buck laptop out there. It has clean lines, professional appearance, and the performance of a high-end laptop for just over $1,000. The 1920x1080 screen is great, the i7 processor with the 650M video card makes this laptop a beast.

    The only reason I did not give this laptop 5 stars is simply the lack of having a SSD. In my opinion, ASUS should have put a 256GB SSD in there versus a 750GB HDD.

    I went online and bought a Crucial M4 256GB SSD to put in there and it will be perfect. Less battery power used, and 10x faster.

    I ordered this laptop for college, which I start in the fall. First impressions with this computer were good, but the only problem was the screen case was warped, and the speakers randomly made popping noises. I think I got a bad unit, and since this is now discontinued I had to get a different machine.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Abt has some of the best service that I have encountered. Everything that they did was prompt, kind and professional. I've spoken to numerous reps during my transaction and they really made it a breeze. It doesn't get better than Abt!

      Pros

      • 1080p Video
      • Excellent Audio
      • Matte Display 1080p
      • Stylish Design
      • Sub Woofer

      Cons

      • Average Battery Backup
      • Track Pad

      Best Uses

      • Movies Games

      I have been shopping for a sub $1000 laptop with graphics card and blu-ray drive for quite sometime. This and Lenovo's Y500 were the final contenders in my search and I chose Asus because of its product quality.

      Features I like on this laptop are
      -Keyboard
      -Display
      -Speakers

      And the ones I did not like:
      -Bulky AC adapter
      -Inconsistent track pad - 'click' is so hard that i always use 'tap' function.
      -Average battery backup

      These cons are still OK for most users and I recommend this product over other brands in the market.

      Service and delivery comments:

      My first delivery was directly from Asus and it was in a horrible package with no bubble wraps (of any kind) to protect from shipping damages. Within 10 days battery wouldn't charge and I had to get a replacement unit from Abt.

      The second package sent from Abt was perfectly packaged with protection from all 6 sides of the laptop. 5 stars to their customer service who was very polite in handling my complaint.

      Doesn't freeze up when 20+ tabs are open, excellent for watching movies and listening to music. It's pretty thin; it's big, but not too heavy. The touchpad is extremely sensitive. I've had the thing for two weeks now and I'm still having trouble with that. Would recommend getting a mouse. It also gets oily and fingerprinty easily, but the box comes with a microfiber cloth for cleaning.

      Good performance, but it's brown!

      Pros

      • Good Specs
      • Good Value

      • Big Heavy
      • Sound Issues

      Best Uses

      • everyday use
      • Gaming
      • Portable Workstation

      This is a nice machine that performs well with no heat issues when gaming thus far. However, it makes some annoying clicking sounds. Some of these are due to a sound card issue that I think can be fixed with some software mods. I haven't located the source of the other.

      Be aware that this machine is not grey as described. It has a brown finish. Moreover, it looks like ASUS cobbled this machine together from several older models. Some parts are silver, some black, but the cover is brown. It performs well, but I am not proud of the way it looks.

      Cons

        Best Uses

          This is a solid computer. The components are excellent, but it's the extras that really make it shine. The case, speaker quality, keyboard, and screen are all the best I've ever owned. The laptop comes with a small external sub. Using the sub, you can actually fill a room with these speakers. The quality's good too. The high resolution screen takes some getting used to, but I wouldn't go back. A SSD would be nice, but I really don't notice the difference except at boot.

          Fast system, excellent build and peripherals. Highly recommended.

          I give this laptop all A+ It is the best one I have ever used. If you need power and speed it has both. It will play all modern games at full or near full resolution. Multi task with ease it can handel anything you throw at it.
          The speakers on this laptop are amazing. I did not know it was possible for to have them sound so good. Has its own sub for the lows.
          Like to watch high resolution movies? It has a Blueray player and 1080P Viewing monitor for the very best you can get in HD viewing.
          It has a great warranty and looks very modern with aluminum finish and swirl design sound speaker grills.
          The Asus N 56VZ-RH71 is an absolute bargain.

              I like the blue ray player, the 2g dedicated video memory and of course the 8g of ram with the core i7 processor. It leaves nothing to be desired.

              My chat was informative and polite. Ordering was simple and fast considering that I had a specified delivery date.

              The laptop came quickly and in tip-top shape on the specified date.

              I would recommend Abt for all computer needs.

              good but seems to have serious problems

              By Rick

              from SF, CA.

              Verified Buyer

              Nice looking design and build quality. Good sound, great screen. Everything I wanted in the specs. But when I first started to use the computer, I pushed the left side of the touch pad and the window opened that usually opens when you only push the right side of the touch pad. I wondered if the touch pad was defective or if this was some new design for me to learn. This still happens sometimes. The touch pad seems to be extremely sensitive and often to be out of control. When I move the curser from the top left upper corner across the page to the right side to pull down the page, sometimes the whole window closes and another window opens. This happens often. Also, it seems hard to get used to windows 8 which is very user unfriendly compared to previous windows programs. Still having problems with another window opening when I move the curser. I can't install the software to do my work, until these problems are fixed.
              This computer cost me a lot of extra money over less expensive ones. I needed a higher capacity computer with these specs, and this promised to be higher capacity and well made. It just gives me a different set of problems than I had with my old lower capacity computer which was also becoming unusable. However, the old one did work better even with it's more limited capacity until it developed multiple problems. This computer was supposed to be better. Asus should offer to fix it or not sell defective ones. Windows 8 looks like a cool upgrade but it is not user friendly or at least seems very hard for me to learn.
              Also, when I was tying, sometimes the letter I just typed would fly off to some other place and I would have to find where the computer would be typing. This would slow my typing down greatly.
              I only have used some pc's and mac's, but they were much easier to use and to produce good work from, and I did not need special computer knowledge.
