160F is not too hot actually. Its quite cool.

Reviewer points out very small things that most people would just ignore. Of course the power brick for a gaming laptop is big, of course a gaming laptop with a 7 inch screen is bulky, most every laptop has status lights.

No, but you will not find anything better than the ASUS one for $800 anywhere.

The egg is typically the best place.

Jeez, can you say CPU bottleneck?

I wouldn't buy anything with such a low resolution either. 1440x900 in the one I posted is kinda pushing it for gaming.

I was afraid you'd come back and say that haha.. Doesn't seem like there's much to choose from in his price range right now
