very good performance, robust, well-equipped, stylish design
very happy for a first purchase of a laptop apart more ...
VERY BAD CHOICE FOR computer music !!!!!
Ricoh 841 chipset R5C managing the IEEE 1394 is very poorly supported by most of the cards and even PCMCIA firewire.
after purchasing a sound card M-AUDIO firewire solo, I'm still looking for possible causes of incompatibility with the PC. No help from ASUS, which rejected its responsibility despite the recognition of the problem.
