    They are somewhat hard and make some noise while clicking. But the touchpad is good and supports multitouch gestures as well...

    Thanks man...

    @Cyanide
    Battery life is around 4 hours on light usage. Windows experience index was 5.9 when i bought it, but after installing many applications desktop performance on aero has reduced to 5.7. Will post a screenshot soon.

    Windows Experience Index



    @Gollum

    I don't think GT540 comes in any laptop around 30k; around 40k, yes. i7 is one of the reasons i went for this laptop.


    Will do a clean install of windows soon. It has come heavily loaded with bloatware.

    congratz Alien,
    I wanted to buy ASUS laptops, but due to lack of service in my region, i had to settle for Lenovo.
    Arch Linux is kind of a bonzai tree, over years u try new things, make small tweaks, and end up with a system that is unique, elegant, and does exactly what u designed it to do.

    Thanks nims11...


    Did a clean install of windows. Installed drivers from Asus site, had some trouble finding the right ones though..
    System boots up much faster now. Posting screenshot of windows experience index.


    As you can see graphics performance has gone up to 6.6 from 5.7, but still the index is 5.9. Probably due to the 5400rpm hard drive.
    Still very happy with the improvement...
