    got one without the blur-ray drive and really good, nice looking and got all the bells and whistles you want for a decent price. Reliable brand, Asus, they make motherboards and other components so they knew what they’re doing when they started making laptops.

    I am a little bit confused. Besides N61J I also find N71J and N82J with different configurations. Can you suggest which one of these notebooks will provide best price to performance ratio ?
