    Opinions sought on the ASUS G751JY for on-the-road editing

      Hello all!

       

      There are times I'm on the road and I need to complete some video editing, and I've been eyeballing this machine:

      I like the idea of a separate (SSD) drive for the OS/swap file, and a real hard drive for video files (where their newer model only has one hard drive).

       

      Yea, I'll concede a bunch of things that are not good like poor battery life (not a problem if I'm sitting in a hotel room or at a customer's site), and the fact that I can get much more power out of a desktop, but I need the portability, which is not open to change.

       

      Also, I like the idea of it having a DVD burner for exporting and/or backups.

       

      Opinions?
