Asus Laptop Computer opinions needed

I know for a fact that some of you are ultra tech nerds. So I will assume, that even some of you without direct experience w/ the Asus laptops, may have an informed opinion of them. So, if you could, please let me know what you think. My laptop is out of commission and I need to replace it.

I HATE sitting at a computer desk. So it's between a new laptop, and building a tower to use on a t.v. w/ a wireless keyboard/mouse combo.

Any info will be appreciated.

My dad just bought a netbook from Asus. It's super nice, durable, and runs well. They seem like solid computers from my chair.

Not sure about laptops, but Asus components are usually considered to be pretty much the best.

When I worked retail we sold quite a few for a tractor supply company. They worked really well in the field (plugged in the equipment). Only had one come back with severe dust problems, other than that they all worked like a top.

In one of my incarnations as an IT Director, I bought 20 or so of them and only had one hardware issue. AND I think there really wasn't an issue, it occured after that company had spun off and the new tech guy was not on the brighter side of things... I think he blamed hardware when he couldn't figure out a problem.

I wouldn't say they are elite machines by any stretch... but they were great for the price.

pretty accurate, for sure, that last part, anyhow. But yeah, they aren't the baddest boys on the block. But very compact, which I find initself 'attractive.' I like the 7" notebk.
