    Typically it is a feature people like to sell but always good to wait for reviews for a variety of reasons.

    I grabbed one today and am very happy with it so far. It is not an IPS screen but it is on par with the viewing angles you get on a Y510p and slightly better on the vertical axis. They put a sticker on the bezel that advertises the "Expanded Viewing Angle" as 150 degrees horizontal and 120 degrees vertical. The hardware ID of the display is LGD02D9. Colors are pretty good as well. Still putting it through the paces.

    I only had the demo version of 3dmark11 so the testing was limited to the 720p tests. Final score was 3624 and temps maxed at 86 degrees for the CPU and 74 degrees on the GPU according to HWmonitor.

    Hi, does the laptop have one or two fans ? Do you mind uploading some pictures ? What are the upsides and downsides ? I only ask 'cause i'm thinking on getting one myself. Thanks

    It has two fans. One of them runs continuously on the right side of the laptop but there are no vents on the right side, I can just hear it running. The other kicks on and off on the left side. Here are some pics I took in a hurry for ya.

    Only thing that I've found annoying so far is a little flex in the lid when I grab it with one hand. And the SD card slot is under the front and recessed a bit. It stays really cool on the bottom while gaming. It pumps out a ton of heat on the left side.

    The bottom cover slides off after the removal of one screw. If you look at the pic of the bottom, the area with the vents is what slides off. This allows access to the HDD and RAM as well as wireless card. Touchpad is just ok, it works but I've used better. Asus logo is illuminated on the back cover.
