Asus are my favourite brand of laptops. They look lovely and are really well built. I have had 3 (2 Asus A6s and an Asus A7)and have had no problems with them what-so-ever. They also come with a 2 year warranty which most laptops do not. The only time I have had a problem with my laptop is when I broke a USB port by accident. Asus collected the laptop the next day and it came back all fixed under warranty four days later- their customer service seemed to be very good.
I don't personally think you would regret buying one.
