    Asus K50 laptop - worthy of my £547?

    I'm looking at buying an Asus K50 laptop with the following spec:

    Core 2 Duo T6600 2.2GHz, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, 15.6" WXGA, DVD±RW, GF G102M, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Premium

    £547.61 inc VAT & del (Ebuyer)


    I wonder whether any of you have any experience of Asus and their laptops. They have been receiving good reviews recently but I have little experience of their laptops.

    Are they reliable
    Are they solid enough and well built
    What is their support like?
    It mentions a limited 2 year support - how does this work?

    Thanks.

    Am considering a Dell Studio 15 as well which is a little more expensive but similar spec.

    Asus is a good brand i can't see you going wrong with one.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.
