    Hey Alien

    I've purchased i5 version of this model while other config is same (Graphic card etc).

    How much memory is it showing under Screen Resolution - advance settings

    also is the adapter name Intel HD 3000 or nvidia.

    Please post the screenshot if possible

    @All

    Thanks..:smile:

    @rider
    It is a cooling pad(unbranded), got it for free.

    @bot9011
    Thanks. I bought it from Aditya Enterprises, near PVS. AFAIK there is no Asus exclusive store in Mangalore.

    @kammu
    Thanks. Audio and display are at par with the segment. Touchpad is nice, but the buttons are hard to click and make some noise.

    @rahul2002
    By sample, do you mean if i can record video playback using a camera and upload it?

    @Cyanide
    Congrats..:smile: How much did it cost and what all did you get?
    Mine shows the same result. Here is the screenshot.

    [​IMG]

    I think it is due to nVIDIA Optimus, graphics card is used only when needed, not sure though. Anyone knows about this?

    38.5 k . not much goodies , a bag and a mouse :|

    In my windows experience index it shows 4.7 for desktop performance on aero , its quite low.. :(

    tried installing driver from the driver CD they provided. (win 7 ultimate - 64 bit )

    Did you get 64bit version drivers or 86 bit version drivers in ur CD ?

    did you update BIOS too ?

    Also from where did you find the drivers ? Asus website ? Did you install all the drivers shown on asus download page ?

    My laptop didn't come with any discs. I created recovery discs using the AI recovery burner software provided. Then i downloaded windows 7 Home Premium iso from digital river and installed a clean copy of windows. Downloaded all drivers from Asus Support. I also did a windows update and installed nVIDIA drivers from here.

    Sorry i don't want to unscrew the bottom lid of my laptop now, but here are some pics of the underside..:|

    :D I meant these pictures only.
    If you open the screws, you're laptop warranty will be void.

    Thanks for the pics

    Btw, remove and re edit the last two pictures. They are showing too much info.

    Thanks for pointing that out. I thought you wanted to see the inside since you mentioned cpu, hdd and ram...:smile:

    @Cilus
    I checked the link you mentioned. There are some differences. My model is sx521v and not sx562d, the processor in mine is 2670qm and not 2630qm. Also the one you mentioned just has DOS. Mine came with Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium.

    I've purchased the DOS model , so installed Ultimate 64bit. I've currently installed drivers from the driver disc asus provided.

    What does it show in "ccleaner" , Intel HD graphics or nvidia ??

    One more thing I noticed on screen i.e pixels. When I played BDRip , I saw that the video was pixelated .It appears fine my desktop.

    Will call the Asus engineer tomorrow abt this and the aero rating issue.

    You are right buddy, in fact it is my mistake that I didn't notice that your's one is having higher version of i7 CPU and OS installed. So really sorry for my annoying post in the 1st place.
    Congrats and enjoy gaming, high end processing with your laptop.
    Also Asus laptops do have very good build quality and high battery life and IMO they are better than laptops from other brand at the same price range.
    A lot of my friends're using Asus laptop after my suggestion.
