ASUS Laptop G Series G51JX-X1 Intel Core i7 1st Gen 720QM (1.60 GHz) 4 GB Memory 500 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M 15.6

Pros: none

Cons: this is the anti-gaming, 'gaming' laptop

where to overheats like crazy. i have a fan on it at all times and overheats on simply games with settings on lowest(WoW). it gets so hot, it shuts down by itself. not only are there heat issues, it shuts down randomly as well.

bluetooth, this is a headache. i bought 3 items to pair with this, a headset, keyboard and mouse. literally every 30 mins to an hour the bluetooth randomly quits and you have to restart it with the touchpad while the laptop spams the last key presses your bluetooth items used before disconnection. i went to the asus website to update the driver, and i get all kinds of errors when trying to install the new drivers.

this laptop barely runs games. dont expect any modern games to be played higher than low settings, medium if you are feeling lucky or dont need performance.

the hard drive is terrible for the size of games and music libraries.

the battery lasts about 40 mins

Other Thoughts: continuation:

there are two lights on the lid which look childish and just waste battery even more.

if you game with the lid closed and connected to external monitor, EXPECT it to overheat within minutes and just shut down.

my friend has this laptop and he suggests i remove the botton cover and have two fans on it 24/7. how is this acceptable? its not

the best update asus made for this laptop is their decision to discontinue it. its a waste of 1200 dollars. for the price, you might expect at least one aspect of the laptop to be decent, but unfortunately its a waste of money.

3 out of 5 eggs this is the gps to get 10/12/2010

This review is from: GARMIN 3.5" GPS Navigation

Pros: -instantly goes to your location when starts up
-has a 'sleep' mode for quick startup like a laptop
-computes the route to your destination quickly
-great for finding places(poi) and exploring
-allows you to type part of a location and it guesses the rest
-great text to voice
-gives you the approx to destination and what speed you are going and has detours just incase(automatically)
-requires absolutely no antenna
-detects your direction even if you have only turned 2-3 feet

Cons: -very big glitch: if the device tells you to turn left onto a highway from a close parallel street but you just keeps going straight, its going to assume you are on the highway even though you are not, so you will get lost and cant reset until you go off course
-the points of interest for finding locations is very old. i have tried to go to computer stores all the time and it just leads me to some dead end neighborhood.
-needs to be updated because some roads have drastically changed but it acts like they are still there

Other Thoughts: there are some flaws but i have seen a lot worse gps devices compared to this one. this is the best ive seen just get it, dont even consider others.

Guild Wars Trilogy PC Game

1 out of 5 eggs not great, terrible support 08/13/2010

This review is from: Guild Wars Trilogy PC Game

Pros: great graphics

in-game cinematics include your character in them, arent pre rendered like most games.

allows 2 classes for one character which is very interesting and allows unique combinations.

free after purchase.

Cons: the game support is nearly non existent. no phone numbers to call for help, only a question service that takes days to help you(and still have no help)

not a true 3d world. there are no physics for swimming or jumping which is basic for most mmos

players advertise this as an mmo, but it is not one. it is a bunch of instances that can only have up for 5 players together unlike other mmos that can show infinite in the same place.

incredible amount of in game advertising for gold selling.

long loading screens(could be 500+MB for one screen but only has to be done once)

Other Thoughts: they changed the game so you need to know a character name to log in. most account systems have a security question that you can pick and answer, but this requires you to just know a character on the account which really is terrible security. doesnt work properly when you enter it correctly and can freeze at connecting.

i cant log in even though i know the character and reset the PW and still doesnt work. i tried the online contact support but that hasnt replied for days.

guild wars 2 is improving the game a lot, but for now, its easy to see why world of warcraft is the best when the competition is this 'mmo' and others. this game is free and has less people playing than a game that requires 15 dollars per month, just something to think about.
