The N56VM is a good quality and very powerful laptop for around £850 and it's a shame that Amazon can't sell it for that because other suppliers can. This laptop's only real weakness is its touch pad, which is far too sensitive and can lead to incorrect selection, or even files being moved by mistake. Having said that if you spend the majority of your time using an external mouse then this laptop becomes an extremely impressive system.

Pros
Construction; well built and has a quality feel.

The keyboard; good to use, but lacks a little bounce on the keys making it a little hard on the fingers for the heavy handed typists. The size of the Laptop makes the use of the keyboard very comfortable.

Display; excellent with wide angle viewing and very little reflection in bright light.

Sound; above par for a laptop and the included external speaker makes a surprising difference. The sound is nicely balanced and expansive.

Performance; stunning; the ivy bridge processor coupled with 6 Gbytes of useable memory make it much faster than my quad core desktop running XP.

Connectivity; good with four USBs, a network connection and HDMI.

Battery life; good with 4 or more hours depending upon how hard the system is working.

Price; very good value for money.

Windows 7; I don't like changing operating systems and have been using Windows XP, but Windows 7 is surprisingly stable and the 64 bit gives the ability to access the 6Gbytes or more of RAM.

Wi-Fi; the Wi-Fi network card must be pretty good as it is faster with stronger reception than any of the other 5 computers in my house.

Cons

Touch pad; this is the real let down. I find this pad so sensitive that it has a mind of its own.

I have the 16Gbyte version of this.
I needed to replace my ageing 4 core Phenom-powered boxes. I do fairly heavy development and it isn't unusual to see 14Gbytes in use, several SQL databases open, four or five Java projects, various documents, Chrome with maybe five or six tabs and several background processes. Under these conditions, Netbeans editor panes were slow to render and I was having graphics problems with windows failing to refresh and, in the worst case, the mouse clicking on the wrong row deleted an entire SVN repository (sorry guys).
Up till now it would have been another desktop but this would mean replacing two machines - home and office - with two. So I took a chance on this and it has worked. Performance is, to say the least, adequate. Heat generated is surprisingly low. The keyboard isn't perfect (keys a little too stiff for me) and the trackpad is undoubtedly clever but I prefer a mouse - the trackpad is half way to a touchscreen but without the all important bit of seeing where your finger is about to press. For that, I have a tablet. Dealing with the last minor issues, this is never going to win a beauty prize, and the power supply is a very big and heavy brick; I will probably buy a second one so I don't have to transport it. Also, the HDMI output is in a slightly inconvenient place.
Upsides? It really is very, very fast and has been very stable indeed so far. A minor mouse cursor problem disappeared after Windows finished updating - which overall took four days, no fault of Asus. McAfee has been replaced by Microsoft Security Essentials, since when it has been even faster. Both my Asus and my Philips large monitors run with no problems at all and no sign of any graphics lag even under very high load.

Verified Purchase
Ivybridge 4 core and invidia mobile card giving exceptional performance. Runs cool and quiet. Looks sleek in satin black and illuminated logo.Loads of memory, Windows 64bit. Long battery life. Great value specification.

I guess people looking for a cheaper gaming lap top would prefer a faster disk.

I bought this machine based on the full HD screen and powerful Ivy Bridge i7 CPU as I need to do quite a lot of development work on a portable device and compiling large builds was taking a long time on my previous laptop and a high resolution helps with all the panes and windows on an IDE. There is no doubt this is a lot of machine for the money and it is blisteringly fast doing the compilations. The screen is also really good - crisp, bright with great viewing angles and the matte display helps with reflections as well. Four USB 3.0 ports is also a bonus as is Bluetooth. The sound is also amazing for a laptop. I have not tried the Blu-ray but I imagine watching movies on this would be a good experience.

On to the negative points: The trackpad, as others have mentioned, is a real pain. You basically have to navigate around with one finger and keep your other finger off unless you are doing any of the 'clever' features like two-fingered scroll etc. I feel like giving the trackpad two fingers though as it is practically useless as it is so sensitive and typing is a pain if the trackpad is enabled as the slightest brush on it can mess up typing. It even sometimes gets its knickers in a twist where it thinks it is in select mode and one time I had to Alt-F4 everything to shut the computer down as it would not respond to a click. Fortunately you can disable it if using an external mouse so I am using a Bluetooth mouse which solves most of the issues and doesn't require an extra dongle.

Also the machine is large, quite heavy and and not very pretty and power supply is a real heavy brick - does it really need one that big?
