Asus G2 Notebook Review

 

If you were to game on the G2P with a battery you can yield close to 2 hours, with max brightness and WIFI On

Screen: Great viewing angles, brightness, and contrast ; Graphics: Decent performance for the X1700 512mb ; Performance: The overall performance matches most 15.4” notebooks ; Battery Life: Decent battery life, achieving 2 hours 47mins maximum ;...

Price: At this price point I would expect a much higher end GPU or a 7200rpm HDD ; Screen: low resolution for such a big screen, also very reflective ; Glossy Plastic: this is a fingerprint magnet ; Weight: (9.7lbs, it is heavy and you'll feel it when...

This is a screenshot of SuperPI, the Asus G2P was able to calculate 2 million calculations in 1 minute and 3 seconds which matches most other laptops equipped with a T7200

ASUS G2

 

Right out of a Need for Speed body-shop, the Asus G2 has plenty of power and pretty lights, but the graphics aren't the best we could have hoped for in a gaming laptop

Flashing lights ; OLED display ; Software support ; Build quality ; Rucksack and gaming mouse

Graphics performance could be better ; Slightly too expensive ; Garish looks

Review: Asus G2 gaming notebook

 

The Asus G2 is well-designed with some useful features for gamers including plenty of flashing lights and highlighted home keys, and the Core 2 Duo CPU ensures it can handle heavy tasks.

Flashing lights; OLED display; software support; build quality; rucksack and gaming mouse

Graphics performance could be better; slightly too expensive; garish looks

If your idea of a design classic is anything out of a Need for Speed body-shop, then the ASUS G2 is right up your street. It has plenty of power and parts that light up just for the sake of it. However, the graphics subsystem, while more than adequate,...

Asus G2P Laptop Review

 

The Asus G2P is aimed entirely at gamers. The laptop itself is designed quite like a computer game. The design is very futuristic and new, with bright colours, highlights and vents.

Asus have delved deep into the mind of gamers and have designed this laptop to meet the gamer’s needs. Just above the keyboard sits a blue OLED display so when you are deeply engrossed in full screen gaming you can see what time it is or if you wish to...

The Asus can handle most hardcore gamers but those who choose 3D titles at high resolutions may be disappointed. If you’re one of them you may want to turn towards the Alienware laptops

I’m sure like you, I looked at the price and though this laptop is a bit expensive even after reviewing it but actually it isn’t bad. The Asus G2P comes with a free rucksack, a Logitech optical gaming mouse and you’re also covered by a world-wide two...
