Summary: Sometimes the stars align and magic happens and that's the case with this laptop. For a portable gaming machine it's seriously compact yet still manages to pack everything you'll ever need in one stunning package.
Summary: The notebook comes with a backpack and two years warranty. Overall, we liked what we saw of the Asus G50V, and gaming is its only mantra. But, gaming laptops are a rare breed. They cater to a niche that likes to indulge and doesn't mind splurging more on extra performance, given a laptop's form factor. If you are in that niche, the Asus G50V is a worthy contender - but it certainly ain't cheap.
Summary: Asus has engineered a remarkable piece of kit in the G50V-A1, and everything about the presentation and design is the company at its best. The screen is top notch, performance is as solid as can be expected, and the unit is loaded with features. To top it all off, Asus throws in a nice backpack and a quality gaming mouse.

Cons: The keyboard is a good size, but you’ll find the keys tend to rattle and feel loose as you type. There’s a Blu-ray drive built in, but the screen only has a 1366×768-pixel resolution, so it’s not Full HD.
