Conclusion: As the first laptop to incorporate Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology, Asus’ G51J 3D is clearly an early adopter product. Decidedly singular of purpose, it will give on-the-go gamers the ability to immerse themselves more deeply in their interactive entertainment, but won’t be of much use in other 3-D viewing applications (not right away, anyway). It’s worth investigating for those who fit its niche market, but will be something of a curiosity for everyone else.
Pros: Out-of-the-box stereoscopic capability, Includes 3D Vision glasses backpack, and gaming mouse, High-end CPU and GPU, Capable gaming rig
Cons: Thick and heavy, Mid-size display with low resolution, Lack of 3-D content (save PC games) limits useful applications
Summary: The ASUS G51J 3D is an exciting notebook for early adopters who want to take their gameplay to the next level. While we would’ve liked a higher-resolution screen—and higher frame rates—this rig is more than capable of playing the latest titles. At $1,699, it’s $200 more expensive than the non-3D version, but that premium is reasonable considering the newness of the technology.
Pros: Stylish design, Fun 3D gaming, Very good overall performance, Gaming mouse and backpack included,
Cons: Worse frame rates than G51J-A1 model when using 3D, Lack of 3D movie content, Mediocre Wi-Fi range,
Conclusion: Notbook ASUS G51J3D waży 3,4 kg i jest dosyć gruby (375x265x38 mm – dł./szer./wys). Na dłuższe wypady raczej go nie zabierzemy, ponieważ na baterii pracuje niecałe półtorej godziny i to tylko wtedy, gdy nie jest zbyt obciążony (78 minut w teście MobileMark07 – Reader).
