The fans do get irritating, but I've gotten so used to them I don't even hear them anymore. I can't comment on the wireless troubles only because the wireless for me has preformed just how its supposed too. DVD burner is just as fast as I would expect, so no problems there. Is there a hotkey to disable the touchpad? Also, can I have your comments on the keyboard? Did you find that some keys required more attention to engage them?
I love everything about ASUS (except that Z71Vs' screen). Great build quality, good looking, all very nice. It was either this computer or a Z70Va, and I went with this because of horror stories with the BT, DVI-out, and better gaming performance. I'll probably go with ASUS next time, but for the time being, this unit is just fine for me.
I think I can gripe on one thing about the Asus. The sharp edge where my wrists rest when typing. The Sager had a beveled edge the went down and felt more natural. The Asus has an abrupt sharp edge that's kinda irritating. Nothing that a gel rest can't fix but that's what gives the Asus that clean sexy look when the lid's closed.
I tried to love the Sager but it just wasn't right for me.
