5 out of 5 eggsThe little laptop that could.

Pros: Construction is solid, unlike some of the 17" ASUS that feel hollow.

The graphics are pretty good, I was weary going into this given the speeds of the GTS 360m vs the GTX 260m, but they ran out of the 260's i wanted so i ultimately went with this. I am not disappointed. A friend of mine has the G51vx, I am able to keep up with him.

This is a very peppy system with the i7, it has a faster response than my desktop.

Mine also came with the upgraded DDR3 1333

Cons: None really. I have not seen any.

Other Thoughts: I get great FPS in Bad Company 2, with settings on low, i get 60+FPS, medium settings is 55+, high settings with AAx4 i get around 35-40FPS with the occasional hiccup that drops to about 20 but not often, this is on populated servers.

Im not sure why some ppl complain or dock points off of here for features, such as blue ray, ok ... it doesn't have blue ray, we know, if you don't like it doesn't have blue ray, don't buy it, or read the spec's prior to purchase... Its a gaming laptop, not a multimedia laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect portable gaming and work laptop

Pros: Price, Performance, Features. 4GB Ram (it's actually 1333, not the posted 1066). The graphics card is quite fast for a laptop and provides excellent frame rates in WoW and Crisis. The screen is larger than I thought it would be - very clear and very bright. I love the Republic of Gamers design on the face which is a sweet blue color. There are two bar lights on the back side of the display, and the ROG logo lights up too. The keyboard is also back-lit which really helps in low-light. Allof the lights are created with white LED's and are really clean looking. There are two disk drive bays. The i7 processor hardly breaks a sweat in normal use and is more than adequate for even the most demanding laptop tasks. All this and the price is very good to boot.

Cons: The cooling vent on the left side of the keyboard expells lots of hot air (as it is supposed to) when playing graphic intensive games. I only mention this because you will notice the heat in your left hand; it's quite tollerable, but you will notice it. The battery life isn't so good compared to my 1005ha netbook, but hey - the netbook doesn't sport a monster processor and hot graphics card. I wouldn't plan on running this machine without external power for very long - especially in a graphics intensive mode.

Other Thoughts: I was looking at the new gaming netbook that's all the buzz, but before I clicked "checkout" I thought I'd better look around. For the same price I got at least twice the processor, and a much better display. This machine should be put in case that will fit a 16" laptop - that's a bit on the large size, but still very portable.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great with Linux

Pros: Quad core CPU, 1080p screen, decent graphics, very solid build. Everything that comes with it works under Ubuntu 9.10 and I'm sure other flavors of Linux. Components are easy to get to (I've already dropped in a 1TB hard drive and an extra 4GB of RAM and have a dual band N card on the way).

Cons: Battery life, but that's what you get for all this power in a small-ish form factor. There are 9-cell batteries for this laptop out there at least.

Other Thoughts: Was initially going to let Windows 7 remain on the laptop despite mainly using Linux for the past 4 years, but the installation was suspect. Updates were broken and any attempts to load anti-virus/anti-malware (with the exception of the pre-installed one that couldn't locate anything) resulted in general "Can't install" errors. If I needed Windows this thing would've been dinged a few eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsG Series G51JX-X1

Pros: This thing will chew up whatever you throw at it and spit it out. It's awesome. I've run Chrome with several tabs open, Digsby with chats, iTunes, Word with several docs open, a 1080p movie in VLC, and a file transfer... all at the same time, and it doesn't blink. Beautiful 1080p screen, Core i7 with 4 gigs of 1333 DDR3 RAM, solid build, you just can't beat the specs for the price. It starts up quickly, and when I've left it on overnight a couple of times it woke up and got moving as though I had left it alone for 5 minutes. Chiclet keyboard is nice, full, and backlit. Trackpad works fine. All around great purchase.

Cons: Little things... Why place the ethernet port right next to the plug for the power adapter on the back when there's so much extra space? I don't mind the USB ports on each side like some people who use an external mouse. It is a fingerprint magnet, but I don't care too much about that, either. Oh, and I haven't had any scratches by the trackpad like the other reviewer claimed, and I wear a metal watch. First time start up takes awhile, too, but, on the bright side, you only have to do it once.

Other Thoughts: Unbelievable value, don't pass it up!

5 out of 5 eggsNice Machine

Pros: Performance
Price

Cons: Bloatware
Big
"Lid" design looks unprofessional

Other Thoughts: Echoing other reviews;
Very nice system, with specs comparable with most desktops; yet to find anything it cannot handle; games, work, etc.
The bloatware is annoying, but removable, and the size is pushing the limits of what I regard as portable (it's significantly bigger than the machine it's replacing, despite the same screen size), since I travel a lot for work- the power brick is huge!
The design on the top is pretty, but if, like me, you dual use your system for work and play it can be a concern, but a skin handles that easily.
Overall; minor annoyances, but so worth it for the price/performance ratio. I spent about 2-3 months looking at upgrade laptops, and repeatedly came back to this one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Value

Pros: Value
Full Backlit Keyboard
Display

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: This laptop is great especially considering the price. I haven't played any games on it yet as I got it primary for home/office/travel. Gaming was the secondary reason for purchasing this laptop, otherwise I would have purchased a cheaper laptop. It's nice to know it has the power when you need it. No dead pixels. This is the first laptop purchase for me (I've built 4 desktops) and I'm completely satisfied with Newegg and ASUS.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Satisfied

Pros: Great performance, nice design, runs every program I've thrown at it better than my old desktop (Core2Quad QX6600, 6GB DDR2 1066, P35 North Bridge, Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS, 750GB 7200 RPM SATA II HDD). Programs I use include: MS Office Suite, Stata, Matlab, Mathcad, Maple, MS Flight Sim X, The Sims 3, Battlefield 2, all on max graphics.

Cons: Came with a crapload of bloatware, but its pretty easy to remove. Also, pretty bulky, it's significantly bigger than my old 15.5" (screen) laptop.

Other Thoughts: For the last 10 years, I have built PCs for myself and several companies. I always use ASUS, if the price is right, because their products are consistent, reliable, and fast! I also considered Sony and Lenovo laptops, but the price was well over 1500 for the same specs. Overall, very happy with this purchase. I've always been a proponent of desktops because of their unparalleled power, but this laptop just might have converted me to a mobile guy :) I<3 ASUS!!

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for the buck

Pros: Best bang for the buck

Cons: N/A in this price range.

Other Thoughts: Asus G series amazing machines excellently priced. The same level Alienware cost 1800+ bucks. Why waste the cash on these when asus's build quality is the same.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy So Far

Pros: Very Fast - so far I have had the chance to render some videos and play COD Modern Warfare 2 (at full resolution).

I have not had any BSODs as some of the other folks have reported.

Screen is really nice - very bright and crisp. For those reporting the letters are too small, you can adjust those easily in your setting without lowering the resolution. It is almost as big as my old Dell 17 inch laptop screen. It's about as wide, and just a little less tall.

Cons: It's Heavy and the battery life seem pretty short. Not really sure if these are cons as this is what I expected with a gaming laptop.

Other Thoughts: So far I'm really happy with this laptop. Windows 7 is really nice and so far I have not had to ctrl/alt/delete for any hung apps. No BSODs or lock ups.

Also - the case design is not so bad. I will be using this in the office and it's not like it's hot pink or neon.

5 out of 5 eggsCouldn't Be Happier

Pros: This laptop is a great bargain- there is a lot of great stuff for a very reasonable rate. The laptop runs great, it's fast and not very crash prone (one blue screen of death prior to the bios update). I had the laptop dual booting Ubuntu in the first 24 hours. I've had no issues installing any software. The air vent does put off a lot of heat, especially when the GPU is under high stress, but, the actual keyboard and underneath stays much cooler. A laptop cooler does help, if the heat is a big problem. Really no complaints except...

Cons: The outside lights can't be turned off if the laptop is on A/C. Oh well....

Other Thoughts: I found a couple of... less documented features. The three lights next to the power switches that seem unusual are actually touch sensitive and control the screen display style, power mode and turn the touch pad on and off. Additionally, if you right click the battery icon (in Windows 7), and select the Power4Hybrid option, you can customize all the power settings to your liking. Especially useful, there is a turbo setting under "Maximum Performance" that can be set to Off, Turbo or Extreme Turbo. These can eek a bit more performance out of the system if needed.
