Holy crap, it always amazes me when I see these giant notebooks. Personally, I think the smaller, the better. I guess I can see a market for a desktop replacement, but this thing is gigantic... 18.4 inches + those ridiculous speakers. You'd have to pack the thing in a suitcase to take it with you.
At a certain point, I just think this is crazy. Why even buy a laptop if you plan on it sitting at home 100% of the time? You sacrifice a lot to have a laptop, usually this is made up for in portability... not really the case here. I can't imagine someone wanting to buy something like this.
They are also using sound quality to try to sell a laptop?! They talk about normally having to use external speakers, but not anymore! Asus has solved your problem by gluing the external speakers directly to your laptop!
this isn't the first laptop to offer some sort of special sound to attract buyers. Some of HP's notebooks advertise "Beats audio" as if using 90's slang makes up for the fact that you're listening to music on a laptop.
Anyways, I guess the product just isn't my thing, but I would love to know whos thing this is... cause it makes little sense to me... you could probably make a smaller desktop than that (look at all the acres of wasted space on the palm rest.. you can fit that hardware in a 15 inch model).
