Summary: I'm going to make this short. This is the first laptop that I'm truly happy with. I have gone through many laptops and desktops in the last couple of years and this is the first time that I'm able to do everything I would do on a desktop on a laptop.
Like a pickup truck on turbo...big, ugly, and fast.

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

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.
Summary: This is the second Asus notebook I have owned, both gamming. Overall I will have to say Impressive laptop for the price per performace. IT far out performes other laptops in its price range. The G50 lays down some serous gamming numbers for a laptop. its a perfet size and weight.
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...
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........
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.
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.
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.
