5 out of 5 eggsWhat a Steal!!

Pros: A similarly configured Alienware M15X is $1924.00 and that is with the outdated GeForce 260M! Why would anyone pay $600.00 more for a name? Way to go Asus & Newegg!

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I am planning on ordering this in a day or two. I just hope Newegg has it in stock when I am ready to order it. This is the best bang for the buck gaming laptop I have found. i7 & GeForce GTS 360M with GDDR 5 & 1080P in a 15" configuration...UNBELIEVABLE!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent leptop

Pros: Changed to this from a Macbook pro, and WOW this thing is designed so much better. Side heat vents work great. Fits in a backpack. Recessed screen helps keep crud off of the LCD. Easy to take apart and upgrade. Has 4 RAM slots! Buy another 2 sticks (4GB) of DDR3 1066 cheap and make it a full 8GB. Amazing performance for the price; 3 of my friends and I researched for days to find this. You won't find a better deal. Design looks sturdy on both the laptop and the power adapter.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: I don't love the logo on the back, but it's not terrible. If I really cared I could put a colored shell around it.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful notebook

Pros: Very fast processor. Very fast GPU. Reasonable price for one of the more powerful notebooks out there.

Cons: Bigger and heavier than I suspected but for me this is more of a "desktop replacement" than a "laptop". Had to burn 6 DVDs for OS backup and it took over an hour. I agree with a previous poster, the "Republic of Gamers" thing is made more 15 year old high school students and not this 40 year old computer engineer.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with the purchase. It's pretty much what it says it is.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Purchase

Pros: *Awesome price for the specs
*Smooth gaming graphics
*Bright crisp picture
*Full size and backlit keyboard

Cons: *Speakers are very low quality; poor sound
*Keyboard (Fn+F11,F12) volume controls are spaced too far apart; makes for a two hand operation
*Asus' bloatware

Other Thoughts: This Asus system is absolutely the best laptop you will find in the current price range. The 'Cons' posted warrant a mention, but are very minor. The sound quality is awesome when using headphones, but listening in an open room is similar to a cheap traveling clock radio. My Asus G51JX-X1 easily handles all my course work, web surfing and gaming. I am able to print large files, transfer documents to an external device and watch a movie at the same time with no hiccups or system slow-down. Thanks Asus and Newegg for an awesome transaction and system.

5 out of 5 eggsVary Good Laptop

Pros: The Hyper-threaded i720 has 4 physical cores with a total of 8 virtual cores and is fast enough for almost any game. I have yet to max it out on a single game! The GTS 360M GPU runs smooth set to the 1920x1080 screen resolution with games and movies alike. -RAM- the ram specs on the page for this laptop are incorrect and gladly so, it is 4 GB however it is a faster 1333MHz instead of the 1066MHz advertised! the motherboard has 4 DIMM slots only 2 of them are used so for around $100 its a good upgrade to 8 GB of 1333MHz RAM and well worth it. the ability to change the brightness of the back-lit keyboard is a nice feature from off to well bright. the same feature is available with the screen with the exception that you cant turn it off compleatly using the brightness controls.

Cons: there are only 2 cons that i can really think of.
1. the battery life isnt particularly long but what can you expect from a gaming laptop. (I keep it plugged in anyways so not much of a con)
2. NO Blue-ray drive! however this can be rectified by purchasing a external or upgrading the internal Super Muli DVD drive.

Other Thoughts: a blue-ray drive would have been nice with the 1080P screen res but not a big deal breaker.

5 out of 5 eggsStable Workstation

Pros: 1. Brought it as a computational workstation because of its full HD screen, core i7, powerful CUDA graphic, 4 memory slots and full set of ports and Express slot.
2. Upgraded to 12 GB for just $ 220 and it has been running intensive computation on CPU with overclocked Extreme Turbo mode for a week without a glitch.
3. Cooling is very quite and effective and the CPU never reaches over 80 celcius degree even in 100 % CPU load over a few days.
4. Right size and weight to be a mobile workstation.

Cons: 1. LED backlight of LCD is not uniform, darker at right side, but acceptable.
2. LED backlight of keyboard is not uniform, much darker at center.
3. Extra keyboard flex is real. Can be easily fixed by putting plastic or paper sheet underneath the keyboard.
4. Tiny sound from tiny speakers. Speaker always works regardless if earphone is pluged in or not.
5. Camera module is not firmly mounted, seems like using sticker to hold it.
6. Rubberized layer on palm rest may peer off in long-term use.

Other Thoughts: Was considered other mobile workstations. They either cost a lot more, have less powerful graphic or have fewer ports and slots. Quite happy with the decision, though was thinking it a risky one. It is a poor man's workstation.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome laptop

Pros: -Awesome display
-Backlit keyboard
-Great touchpad
-Good sound
-10 key
-Fast HDD

Cons: It does run pretty hot, mainly when playing games.

BLOATWARE GALORE!!!
(no biggie, most of it you really do not need)

Slow RAM, still just nit-picking.

Collects fingerprints.

Other Thoughts: This is a great laptop for gamers and students alike, I am very pleased with this purchase. I have not had any of the problems that the other reviewers have talked about, they are just unlucky I guess =]

5 out of 5 eggsOverall - Excellent Laptop

Pros: i7 720QM
Full HD Screen
High Speed RAM (1333 MHz, not 1066)
7200 RPM HDD
GTS360M 1G

Runs super fast / good price

Cons: Definition is very high for a 15.6" screen, sometimes you find it is hard to read (letters are too small)

Battery life / hot

Bought the laptop a month ago, had BSOD once, but after I updated the BIOS and firmware of the HDD, it seems the problem is sloved

Other Thoughts: It is excellent laptop overall, highly recommended. If you have any problems (BSOD, backlit keyboard not working, etc), you should flash the latest BIOS and update the firmware of the seagate HDD to the latest edition (3SDM1). Also, update the graphic driver

5 out of 5 eggsBlazing fast

Pros: I added a samsung solid state drive and this baby is just awesome. It is finally nice to have a computer that can keep up with me and what I want to do.

The 1080 led lcd diplay has awesome rich colors and brighter whites. I was playing fallout 3 on two screens thanks to the hdmi out 1080 x 1920 on both running 60 frames each.

The ram on the gpu is blazing fast.

Also I dont know if its a glitch but I bought 8gb to max out my ram and realized there is 4 slots for ram. So I just threw in the 8 plus the 4 it came with and it shows up as 12GB and I am able to use it all. I have Adobe CS5 with 64bit premiere and it will use all 12gb. I have had no problems running them and its been atleast 2 months. Thanks for another good product from asus.


When you open it up you see these copper heat pipes. You know you've bought quality.

Cons: just the average bloat ware stuff. speakers are week.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat performance at a good price...

Pros: I am very staisfied with this system. It boots up smoothly and quickly, and it handles my games pretty darn well. It has also done great with my online school work (one would hope so). I especially like the backlit keyboard. I read complaints about the speakers, but I don't blast my audio, and they work just fine for me. The bloatware is not too bad, and gave me no problems with the uninstall. I would reccommend this sytem to any mid-range budget that wants a good traveling gaming computer.

Cons: The hard drive is not partitioned in a way that makes a lot of sense for a gaming platform. I have to install my game data on the "data" side, otherwise the OS side is stuffed in no time. Also, the case is attractive, but is a glossy fingerprint magnet. Both minor issues.

Other Thoughts: This laptop is a great balance of size & weight to performance. The price is pretty reasonable, too. The fan pushes out a lot of heat, but nothing I wouldn't expect while it's crunching game graphics. Just don't put your cold beverage on the left side...
