I bought this one from BestBuy last time for $280. Returned week later. Worst laptop I ever had. Fan never slows down; laptop is running very hot; touchpad is very uncomfortable; and the body is very fragile; it looks like if you drop it from 1 feet it will fall apart.

I got the HP 17" with these specs a few weeks ago and it runs pretty cool (so perhaps it's the Asus design). This platform games VERY well. Older games can run in ultra at very high frame rates, most modern games run at medium or low at fluid rates. It's also fast for general processing - I know that it's slower than an i7 (and slightly slower than an Ivy i5) but you'll never run into issues. It multitasks great.
I had 30-35 tabs, 8 PDFs open, 4 Documents, a photo editor, and more and it didn't lag for a moment. A8 and A10 forever, frankly.
