The N82JQ (what is up with these names? They should do like phones carriers and call them something cool) is a very nice looking notebook. I was even more impressed when I was told it could be used for gaming.
The laptop has a nice copper-ish color with a very interesting pattern to it on the top lid and under the hood on the touchpad and above the keyboard -- you have to get really close to see it in detail. I do like that ASUS has decided at least in part to continue the design from the cover to the inside. I often hate that, when your laptop is closed it looks great, but when opened it turns boring.
Besides the style on the cover, deck and touchpad, it’s a pretty standard affair. Nothing special about the keyboard, though I like the feel of it.
The ASUS N82JQ makes for a nice looking mainstream laptop, and for an even cooler gaming machine. If you are a hardcore gamer, this might not be your first choice, though it would be good as a nice secondary laptop. If you are a casual gamer I would definitely check this out.
Think about it this way: if you’re rich and own multiple cars, this may not be your everyday car, but the N82JQ is a nice looking weekend car or for when you’re in the mood to style and profile.
