At about $900, this 16-inch laptop features a chiclet keyboard, bluetooth compatibility, and USB 3.0. This laptop features an i7 processor (this one is a hair more powerful than Samsung's i7). It only comes with about 500GB of hard drive space and 4GB of memory. However, the N61Jq contains an expansion slot so you can always upgrade to 8GB in the (extremely unlikely) event that 4GB is not enough. This laptop also has a 1GB ATI Mobility Radeon graphics card, so it's a great choice for media, games, and things like that. One other thing to keep in mind: Asus has a great reputation for building quality laptops (they're ranked as the #1 most reliable PC brand in PCMag.com's Service & Reliability Report 2010). So if you're worried about quality, breathe easy: this Asus machine is reliable and powerful.
