Asus G51Vx Budget Gaming Notebook Review

11 October 2009
  • Summary: Gaming notebooks don't have to land you in the poor house. You don't have to spend over $3,000 to get something to play Team Fortress or Call of Duty, even if you want to dial up the settings a notch or three.
  • Pros: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M, HDMI, FireWire and eSATA ports, Very attractive design, good build quality, Backlit chiclet keyboard is fantastic, Incredible value at $1049
  • Cons: Less than admirable battery life, Too heavy and bulky for some users, No multitouch trackpad, Power4Gear only allows up to 150MHz overclocking

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).
  • 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
