Best Laptop ever

kemo "salute", Amazon
23 April 2014
  • Summary: I have this Laptop since 2010 and really amazing. You can do almost everything with this. I noticed at the beginning when Visa was the operation system that the virus can't penetrate it I don't know why but yes........ But I have changed the op to Windows 7 and is like a jet it's more smoother when playing hard core gamed. I used to play; Call of Duty 3, Vegas to Tom.... and God of War.

Love it.

  • Summary: This computer is a rock. Meaning it is solid. No problems. I had one just like it, even with the flames about four or five years ago. It got stolen. I loved it so much, I got another. I have a G72GX. This computer pretty much plays the same games on the same settings as that much newer "better" laptop. So either laptops aren't improving or this one was exceptional for its time.

Great machine!

  • Summary: I bought this when I needed a laptop for class, mainly because I needed a laptop, tablets weren't in existence, and I played quite a few PC games, as there is just some things tablets can't yet replace a laptop for. This thing handled everything I could throw at it, and still does. I later bought a second hard drive, a 320gb, for music and movies etc, to put in the second hard drive slot already included, which is an amazing feature by the by!

  • Summary: Great laptop, I like it. The only inconveniences is the LCD screen smallest, since the seller changed this way; however, everything is very good.

There's plenty of missed potential here

  • Summary: My brother has this laptop, and overall, it is a decent computer. It has a good CPU, a good GPU, and good RAM. There's plenty of upgrade options, as the FSB can handle faster (and more) RAM, and the CPU and GPU are readily upgradeable as well. The major problem is that ASUS didn't design the cooling well. The fan does not have any direct air flow from the bottom of the case and over the heatsinks.

It was exactly what I wanted!

Avid Reader, Amazon
23 April 2012
  • Summary: First I must say that I had the G50Vt-X1. It's video died, and I could no longer get a card that fit it. (Planned obsolescence sucks!) I ordered this one to replace it. I put my two hard drives in it and my ram sticks. It has worked perfectly! I use it everyday for gaming, even dualboxing in windowed mode, etc. Never a problem!

Best bang for the buck when in this price range.

  • Summary: The G50Vt-X5 is quite a powerful beast of a laptop. Mine doesn't quite match the configuration at the top of the page, and more resembles the one in the description (2.15GHz). It handles games exceptionally well with the GeForce 9800M GS video card, and is quite upgradeable and expandable for a laptop. The built-in overclocking is pretty handy if you need a little more "oomph", and it handles this overclocking safely since it's part of ASUS's own software suite.

Great laptop! Upgrade to Windows 7 and it's like a Macbook Pro...

Dad of 3 "G. Reid", Amazon

  • Summary: Would give it a 5 but the 4 is because you will want Windows 7 or a downgrade to XP. That's the nice thing about this, you can put Linux, XP, W7, and even Mac OS on it if you want to get into the whole Hackintosh thing. I am buying a second one because I use this for a Pro Tools and video workstation. The GPU is still good enough for what I do so I think I will buy several more eventually and have a gaming one, etc.

Best Budget Multi-Media/Gaming Laptop!

J. Morbidelli, Amazon
26 May 2010
  • Summary: Ok, this is the fastest laptop I have ever owned. I actually bought the one with the p7450 2.13GHz, but I upgraded to the P8700 myself. I bought a Refurbished Asus G50VT. With Vista on it is ok, but with Windows 7 on it its awesome. It can play Far Cry 2 and Call Of Duty MW2 on the highest settings. When playing these games, the video card got to 86C after an hour. My frame rate was in the High 20s mid 30s on the highest settings. The hottest the CPU ever got was 72C.

Like a pickup truck on turbo...big, ugly, and fast.

C. Chin "gadget geek", Amazon

  • Summary: I had an ASUS G1S before this. That machine fried itself with it's 8600GT-M video card (if you have this watch out for your ticking timebomb). Anyway, got this as a refurb from Asus when I sent in my G1S. The G50VT is about an inch or 2 wider in the case. It doesn't fit in my laptop bag now. It's got this really hideous graphic on the cover. I mean, something from Ed Hardy ugly. This is why it's staying home.
