The G50 from Asus revolutionizes the way you get your entertainment on the go. Plus it has features to increase your privacy and productivity. The Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 (2.40GHz) processor and 4GB of RAM provide an optimized, multithreaded architecture for improved multimedia and gaming experience, and features the powerful NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT GPU which boasts 512MB dedicated memory for the ultimate HD video and gaming experience.

The large 15.6” Wide XGA display delivers pictures with stunning clarity and true-to-life color, and enables convenient panoramic image editing and viewing with less horizontal scrolling. The integrated webcam gives you additional entertainment while you are chatting to your friends and family.

All of this functionality is great, but useless in isolation. So there's a plethora of connection options, both wired and wireless. Circling the shell are 4xUSB, 1xFireWire, 1xeSATA, 1xHDMI and more. Wireless connectivity includes 802.11n and Bluetooth.

3 out of 5 eggsOverall not a bad buy.

Pros: Great piece of equipment, especially for the price. Performance is great for it's time. Undoubtedly a strong "gaming laptop". Will definitively buy ASUS again, just not a laptop.
Customer service was great.


The GPU isn't too bad, but the CPU overheats tremendously. Forced throttling even when nowhere near 100% power use for a relatively short period of time.

I've caused a fail-safe shutdown while watching a movie with no external cooling. Never touched the overclocking due to fear of meltdown.

Battery life is pretty terrible. A 6-cell does not do it justice.

Other Thoughts: I've corrected for the heat issue by using a modified 10" box fan as a cooler. Works wonders.

2 out of 5 eggsOver Heats

Pros: One of the best warranty programs out there. Great customer service.

Cons: You'll need use of the warranty program. Like you might have read, lot's of heat issues. So I guess buy a cooling pad but should you really have to? The side of my laptop that where the heat sync blows hot air out of has melted. But, ASUS was happy to help and they're going to take care of it. Too many lights that can get annoying when you're trying to surf in the dark.
Weak, weak speakers...
Also, due to the heat, it crashes a lot, and forget using it on your lap for a few minutes, I should've bought a desktop instead.

Other Thoughts: The quick launch program is a waste of laptop space, I'm not sure who really needs it. I will buy ASUS again, just not this line of model.

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Awesome

Pros: hmm let's see.....
- good specs
- cool design

Cons: - doesn't come with bag, but w.e it's newegg edition.
- crash once, but that time i was alt tabing like 4-5 times while playing GTA San Andreas

Other Thoughts: It matches with my Deathadder ^^ so good. Runs most of the recent games, although the graphic card could be better if it's 9800M GS.
There are some junks needed to remove.
I absolutely recomment this to everyone. My friend brought one too but it's Bes Buy version, cheaper but slower.

5 out of 5 eggsWow and school

Pros: Great Specs for the Price
Customizable Power Usage
Configurable LED lights
2.0 Mp Web Cam
Express Gate
ASUS Utilities are top of the line
Great Warranty that you would normally pay an extra couple of hundred for,

Cons: Not really a con... You must get a notebook cooler for this thing. It generates a good amount of heat.

The NVIDIA 9700 GT is not supported for the Nvidia 3D Glasses. No 3D World of Warcraft! :(

Other Thoughts: Fingerprint Magnet.. It comes with a microfiber mini towel.
I'm currently using the logitech G5 Gaming mouse.
Sound... is tolerable. If your an audiophile your going to need too get an external amp.

3 out of 5 eggsSoSo

Pros: Once all the bugs are out of it it's Fast, reliable, solid construction.
Overall I am happy with it, I just wish I got EVERYTHING I paid for.

Cons: Vista is terrible.
Speakers are not powerful at all.
The keyboard is shifted to the left of the screen by one key so it takes some getting used to.
No light for the web cam.
Heat sync on the side shoots painfully hot air.
Lights get annoying in a dark classroom.

Other Thoughts: No TV tuner card for models sold within the U.S. They popped it off the board before selling it. The 'ant' port isn't hooked up to anything.

Not happy the 50v(T)-x5 is 400$ less other places.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy

Pros: Excellent computer with many nice features. Dedicated video memory is wonderful huge step up from a laptop I had a couple of years back. Have not had any problems with it so far and don't believe that I will. Runs games like Oblivion at highest setting without a prob.

Cons: Could have come with a light scribe burner...

Other Thoughts: Purchased with a cooling unit to sit it on so I won't have to worry about any overheating when i'm running my games. Recieved 3 days after order.

5 out of 5 eggsBig Bang for my $$$

Pros: Nice notebook. I have only had it for a week with limited use, so far it has proven to be another great value from Asus. The keyboard is solid and the screen is beautiful. It is supplied with Windows Vista Home Premium 64bit and the specifications seem to be accurate so far. Newegg went over the top to solve a Billing&Shipping issue.

Cons: None at this time.

Other Thoughts: A pre purchase call to Asus Tech support left me feeling comfortable about their willingness to help if ever needed. Remember to shop and compare options. If you want a great deal get this now, i think you will enjoy it.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Laptop, Great Price

Pros: - Awesome exterior design.
- Design on back looks pretty awesome.
- Great hardware for the price. Cant beat it with any other notebook.
- Express Gate. (Awesome)
- Facial recognition to log in. (Awesome, works well for me.)
- Other useful Asus utilities.
- No Bloatware.
- No fingerprint scanner (Pro for me)
- $200 Cheaper then G50Vt-A1
- Newegg

I was going to get a N50-B1B and then I saw this computer and just had to get it. The design really looks good and outdoes a lot of other laptops.

This was worth every penny and I am happy with computer.

Cons: Not much to list here, these are not really cons but just something that you should know.

- Does not come with USB mouse like a lot of Asus computers. This is due to this being a Newegg version of the G50.)

- Does not come with a carrying bag like a lot of Asus computers. This is due to this being a Newegg version of the G50.)

Other Thoughts: Get this computer, you will be happy. The G50Vt-A1 is $200 more and there is not a substantial difference between them. Get this one if you do not want to spend that money or you do not like orange :-)
