Older series laptop but can still hold it's own thanks to the GTX260M
28 November 2012
Summary: As a computer graphics designer I have owned and used many ASUS G-series over the past couple years; G50, G51's, G60, G72 & G74's. Built quite solid I personally find the construction of these models to be more durable than the newer "stealth" G-series, although the cooling system on the newer ROG "stealth" series have a far superior design. Although this Republic Of Gamers model is a couple years and series old, it can still hold it's own to the average new laptop.
Excerpt: I am a huge ASUS fan so I've never really owned anything outside of the ASUS brand other than a Dell desktop and another HP desktop. The ASUS is the best computer out there. They are best for value, quality, and warranty. I had a G51VT prior to my G60VX and it was amazing. However, I cannot really justify upgrading from the G51VT to the G60VX. The upgraded parts were nice but it was hard to notice a big difference in performance increase.
Excerpt: This ASUS laptop is great for people who are always on-line like me, and also loves to download from the internet anywhere and everywhere, the WI-FI internal wireless card is great. I mostly got this laptop because my old laptop was just to small and didn't have the things that i wanted like the internal wireless card that is able to use any router.
Excerpt: I purchased my ASUS G60Vx laptop from Best Buy in November of 2009. This laptop continues to impress me with how powerful it really is. The tasks that take many people a minute or more to process, this laptop can have done in a manner of seconds. Granted, I tend to tweak my OS a little bit, but I have a less than 60-second boot time from the time I hit the power button to the time I am completely loaded into Windows.
Summary: Probably a bit late for this review as we bought this Christmas 1010. The computer runs great, has had no problems, has played all the games he likes that takes lots of memory and a good graphics card. The only consideration is that the battery only lasts about an hour or so, depending on what you do. The keys have an underlight and there is a great lighted design on the front. Wonderful picture.
Summary: I bought this laptop Refurbished. Mint condition, I totally love this laptop. Four star because of only one little thing about it, the cosmetic finish of Below the keyboard is like... ... Weak? the paint would get crashed even if it has no scratches... But is a LITTLE thing. GREAT LAPTOP AND REAT PRICE. I run BLACK OPS "FULL GRAPHICS SETTINGS" 8x Anti Alias, ALL DETAIL FULL at 45fps aproximately.
Summary: I am not a gamer. I bought this from Circuit City for everyday computing and the processing and manipulating large photo files. The fast hard drive as well as the dedicated video card works great for that purpose. As a refirb unit I must say that it arrived in perfect condition, well packaged and complete it its' minimal accessories. It show no evidence of being used .. ever. The lid is attractive and seems solidly made.
Excerpt: i first bought this laptop early 2010 when it was still fairly new it cost me around £500 from ebay and was worth it. i have windows 7 home premium running on it and it is still really quick for a 2 year old laptop. The specs it has 4 gig of ram running 2 GHz on a core 2 duo cpu, i know it would be faster on an i5 or i7 but it is by no means slow at the minute.
Pros: really quick, good amount of ram, hardly lag with online games
Cons: bit heavy, fan sometimes makes a fair bit of noise 2 small hard drives instead of 1 big one
Summary: Habe das Notebook jetzt seit ca. einem Jahr und bin im Großen und Ganzem sehr zufrieden. Das Gerät hat eine super Geschwindigkeit; bisher liefen auch Games auf höchsten Details flüssig (über richtige anspruchsvolle 3D-Shooter kann ich nichts sagen) Die Grafikkarte gehört auch heute noch zum Highendbereich, so dass hier trotz eines CPU aus der "vergangenen Generation" eine beeindruckende Leistung zu Stande kommt. Äusserst praktisch ist auch die beleuchtete Tastatatur.
Summary: ...das Tastaturlayout ist nicht so prall. Alle Abbildungen zeigen die us/ uk Version bei der die Tasten shift, cap look und control recht groß sind. Leider wird das gute Stück mit der deutschen Tastatur ausgeliefert... Das bedeutet: die drei Tasten sind deutlich kleiner! Schade, schade, schade. Bis auf diesen nennenswerten Kritikpunkt - prima Teil. BFBC2 läuft ohne Probleme.
