Excerpt: I was needing a new desktop computer as I was unable to play any of the newer games and really wanted something that could do it all. I was tempted to build a new computer from scratch but I noticed that the premium price to play games and build a system would be $700+. As I was searching for parts I found a refurbished unit price on a ASUS G50-VT that was nearly $200 less then my budgeted price!
Excerpt: My computer needed an upgrade and I had a few specifications that I wanted. I asked my friend that works in computer to pick his choice, and that is what I picked. Sadly, if I could do it all over again, I would not pick this computer. I do really like that it has the number keypad on the right, and it is easy to type on. The keys are large enough. Some things I don't really like are that it is big, heavy and bulky.
Excerpt: This computer is fast, reliable, and looks great. The memory could be a little bit larger but other than that I love this computer. The one i have has with held lots of abuse from being spilled on and dropped and pounded on by my daughter who's only 1 years old. The graphic abilities are seem endless and online gameplay is great. I've had this computer for over a year now and I haven't had a single problem with it.
Excerpt: I was looking for a new laptop and wanted something powerful enough that I wouldn't need to buy another in the next year or so. I've also been toying with the idea of playing World of Warcraft. I found this ASUS G50 at Best Buy for $899. I wasn't familiar with the brand name, but was assured that ASUS has been selling computer components for years. It had all of the basics plus the graffic card, extra memory, and 17" screen I wanted.
Excerpt: Cheap. Performance. Quality. Gaming. These are all words that refer to the G50V. It is a great looking laptop and with its great looks comes outstanding performance. It will run most games on high setting fairly easy at an amazing price! Yes, the speakers are very weak and disappointing but who uses on-board speakers on a desktop replacement laptop? I don't. And the microphone? Well, if you're a gamer then you already got a headset. My biggest complaint is the heat.
Summary: This laptop performs excellent. Keyboard is easy to use sizewise. The backlit keyboard helps in dim lighting. The speed of the processor is supurb! Screen is bright and easily adjusted for conditions. This works very well as a presentation laptop for powerpoint! I bought it for the speed and functions of the cpu but this is also an excellent gaming laptop. The only thing that could be inproved on would be to have a larger capacity battery.
