Good older machine, GTX260 with Dual drive bays

  • Summary: Purchased w/o drives, put a SSD and a 500gb drive in I had. With a SSD its faster that many newer systems. Will run any game that is not DX11. Nice machine with a big display, not overly portable. Replaced my wife's desktop and it does everything she could want.

  • Summary: I bought this computer broken (overheating). I took it apart and cleaned the cpu and reapplied thermal compound (arctic silver 5). The computer would run fine for awhile but still overheated due to the graphics card (160-180F). Cleaned the card and heatsinks and reapplied thermal compound and threw it back together. Now my temps idle at about 120-130F on the gpu.
  • Pros: 17 inch screen, large keyboard, plenty of power, hidden usb ports, blue and customizable multicolored leds.
  • Cons: Very large (will not fit standard laptop bags). Runs hot from the factory. Can not turn off ROG Led or the led under it. Standard keyboard (not backlit like the g51 keyboard). Can not service video card without full disassembly of the computer.

An overheating disaster since day one.

  • Summary: I've had issues with laptops breaking down in the past, but this has been a joke. To be fair, this was purchased as a refurbished unit (Tiger Direct, Ontario, Canada), but I've had it sent in and repaired by Asus three times now, and I end up with the same problems again within a few months. The laptop runs insanely hot (without using the over clocking function or running intensive programs), to the point where the back vent starts to melt and warp out of shape.
  • Pros: - Good hardware specs
  • Cons: - actually overheats to the point of melting the casing, - VERY obnoxious bootup sound that can't be changed, - horrible battery life, - two blue lights on the back of the screen actually bleed through the screen on darker images

Alles in Einem ein guter Laptop

  • Summary: Alles in einem ein super Laptop. Gute Grafik - schnell - gute Optik. Die wichtigsten Anschlüsse sind hinten RJ 45, HDMI, sowie Ladekabel. Beidseitig Abdeckungen für USB, Kopfhörer usw. Leider wird das Gerät nach einiger Zeit heiß und der Lüfter ist dann auch nicht zu überhören.

Das günstiere Gamer Pendant zu Alienware mit ausreichend Power auch 2013

  • Summary: Das G71GX ist für diesen, teilweise hier sehr nedrigen Preis ein unglaubliches und luxoriöses Gamer Notebook. Ich spiele Battlefield 3 darauf und hätte nicht gedacht, dass es derart gut läuft. Aufgerüstet mit einer SSD und einer USB 3.0 Karte im freien Express Slot stößt es so manches neuere Gamernotebook aus dem Ring!

G71GX is a rockitluncher

  • Conclusion: Los juegos andan de maravilla. Shift, Splinter cell Conviction, Supreme commander2, HAWX1, con detalle al maximo, por ahi sacando AA para que no se caliente la GPU o para aumentar ese pelin de rendimeinto, pero los juegos con los detalles en alto, un avion. El split second no me anduvo en lo mas alto, pero bueno por ser una notebook tiene un rendimiento bestial!.
  • Pros: Pantalla de 17" a una resolucion de 1440x900", Salida HDMI, 4 Entradas USB, Geforce 260M 1GB un misil, Procesador Intel Core 2 duo T8700, la serie 8000 es la mejor serie de core 2 duo para escritorio y note, OC rapido, sensillo y sin fallos!, lleva tu core 2 duo de 2.53GHZ a 2.89GHZ con un simple boton!, La 260M posee un Overclock a medida que se la exije, Estetica, imprecionante con el logo de R.O.G, y color azul a los extremos, exelent, Muy linda superfice la del to...
  • Cons: Por ser Refurbishe no te viene con la caja de R.O.G te viene con una toda fea de carton que dice ASUS XD, Por ser refurbisher, a los costados no viene en color rojo, sino que es todo en negro., La GTX260M levanta mucha temp, con el splinter cell con AA filtro alto pasa los 85, sin AA y filtro esta en 76-79., Vienen los drivers pero para windows VISTA para instalar w7 tenes que descargarlos., Ninguna mas, es un caño esta note, estas contras no son nada, con respecto a ...
