Asus G51Vx-RX05

17 November 2009
  • Excerpt: If there’s one thing that might take your mind off your financial woes, it’s some good old-fashioned fragging. And Asus is happy to oblige by offering the most affordable full-fledged gaming notebook that we’ve ever tested. The G51Vx-RX05, sold exclusively through Best Buy, costs less than a grand—OK, at $999, that’s a technicality, but still, this 15-inch notebook is cheap. It’s half the cost of the 15-inch iBuypower M865TU gaming rig we reviewed in November.
  • Pros: Great mobile gaming on the cheap; less cumbersome than larger gaming rigs.
  • Cons: Relatively wimpy CPU; battery drained in 92 minutes; speakers aren't great.

Asus G51VX Review

2 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Outrageous style and outrageous speed define the Asus G51VX. Of course, so does outrageous impracticality, but as a gaming notebook, that’s hardly anything to be ashamed of (in fact, it’s pretty much par for the course). Fortunately, for a machine of such extremes, Asus has managed to keep price decidedly down to earth. Considering how far it outperforms last year’s model, $1,050 actually looks like an amazing bargain for this stellar game machine.
  • Pros: Excellent value; outstanding game performance; comfortable, full-size, backlit keyboard; unique style; quick boot times
  • Cons: Unusually weak speakers; low resolution screen; short battery life; heavy and bulky; so-so build quality

Review: Asus G51VX-A1 15.6-inch gaming notebook

18 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Buying a gaming laptop used to mean taking out a small mortgage, but as hardware has progressed it has become a lot less painful of a purchase. Today you can get a good gaming laptop for under $1500 and, depending on your needs, you probably won’t even have to compromise very much.

ASUS G51Vx (RX05) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
11 August 2009
  • Summary: For $1,049, the ASUS G51Vx-RX05 is a very good laptop for gamers who don't want to sell their blood in order to spill some blowing away zombies. Its frame rates may not be as high as those produced by the Gateway P-7807u FX, but the G51Vx costs about $350 less, and its premium design is more appealing. While we prefer the Gateway for its greater horsepower, ASUS' budget-friendly rig will leave you with more cash to spend on the latest titles.

Test: ASUS G51Vx - stvořeno pro hry

8 November 2014
  • Summary: Nemá cenu nějak rozebírat, pro koho je tento notebook určen, když je to na něm přímo napsané. Jeho výkon je velmi dobrý, a pokud se zachová příznivá cena i na našem trhu, je to bezpochyby velmi zajímavá volba pro náruživé hráče, kteří se nechtějí vzdát své vášně ani mimo domov. Samozřejmě, že nic není dokonalé, a tak i zde je několik vlastností, které mi nesedly - konkrétně displej by si zasloužil vyšší rozlišení, když i ve hrách by ho tato grafická karta dokázala...
  • Pros: vysoký výkon a výbava při zachování rozumné hmotnosti, při kancelářské práci není hlučný, integrovaný numerický blok
  • Cons: nejistý stisk kláves, slabý kontrast popisek klávesnice, nízké rozlišení displeje
