Asus N56VJ-S4164H

 

Screen performance and build surpassed my expectations. Pc pro gave it a great write up so I had high hopes and I am pleased to say that this did not disappoint.

Mi or gripe, but there are no buttons on the scroll pad. The whole pad does depress to signal a click but it's not quite intuitive

Powerful and fast, excellent keyboard, good screen, by far the best laptop sound I've ever encountered, attractive machine too. I swithered between getting this and a Macbook Retina Pro for ages. Glad I went for the Asus.
