Perfect Laptop for HD Video Editing, Battery Life suffers and USB 3.0 doesn't work
8 July 2013
Summary: I've used this laptop since late 2011 and I can't say too much about it being bad about it except for it's battery life. The battery life on it's lowest power savings mode can last from less than 2 hours to less than a half hour on full high powered mode.
Summary: I pretty much love EVERYTHING that this machine has to offer! I can game in high (ultra too!) settings, I can power through just about every application (be it EasyWorship, a dozen Firefox Tabs, or compiling a video in Windows Movie Maker) and not stutter (well, at least in Win 7...
Summary: So I got the laptop in a very well packed package from UPS This is my first day owning this laptop and it is GREAT :D (There is 1 dead pixel that I noticed, but it's hardly noticeable) I ran Starcraft 2 with it and it ran full options (ultra settings) without any lag.
Summary: This is really an awesome laptop! It really ranks at 4.5 stars, but I can't pick that. There's only a few small things wrong with it, which I'll describe later, but first the good stuff. I was able to pick this up on sale for $900 at a local big box.
Summary: I have had this laptop for two months now and did a lot of research before finally deciding on this one. While deciding between the g53sx and the g53sw the deciding factor was based on the graphics card. The g53sx runs a 2gig @128bit rate vs the g53sw runs a 1.5gig at 192bit rate.
Summary: Computer is top notch, everything about it screams "fast" if this were a review based solely on the hardware, this computer would receive a perfect 5 star rating. However this computer comes preloaded with tons of bloatware that really hampers on the user experience.
Summary: (Read the whole review to see why I gave it 4 stars and not 5) this laptop can handle any game you through at it, it has one of the best if not THE best video card for a 15 inch laptop, booting time is fast, ram is more than enough, and the shipping and packaging was top-notch, except for one thing.
Summary: this computer is amazing. It has a lot of performance packed in. and it can run any game i throw at it at med-high settings. as far as portability this things not coming with you to class but you can bring it to LAN parties and such
Summary: I had the ASUS G53Sw-A1 for about a month now. The first thing I did was put it to a rigorous, non-stop, two maybe three day download. After which I would play a game that takes a fair chunk of the processor to run.
Summary: Purchased 5/27, I've had adequate time to use the laptop. Be prepared for the usual gimmicks: Useless OS and bloatware. Out of the box, the laptop is blazing fast... for a while. Give it a couple hours, maybe run a DX11 benchmark or some 1080p video, it'll lock up (I know this to be true of the 17"...
