I just bought an Asus M6BNE over an Acer Ferrari 3200 because of better battery life and heat issues, and I am **very** pleased.
The screen on the Asus M6BNE is 1280x800, very crisp, bright... excellent screen. I own a Dell laptop with an UXGA Ultrasharp, and a Dell 2001FP LCD, and this screen is brigher than both of them. I love it. Text and movies are a dream with this. Gaming is incredible on this screen too (my test for gaming is if the computer hardwar becomes "invisible" to me, and I am completely consumed by the gameplay... it definitely passed this test when I play World of Warcrack).
Add on top of that Asus' build quality, and you have a winner. I have purchased many Asus motherboards in the past, and 2 video cards made by Asus, and consider them as the benchmark of computer component manufacturing.
