Asus G51J-3D


The Asus G51J-3D is the first laptop to incorporate Nvidia's 3D vision technology. If you absolutely love the idea of 3D gaming, this proof-of-concept system will work well for a pricey showpiece.

Built-in Nvidia 3D Vision technology; fast Intel Core i7 CPU; decent gaming performance

Expensive; 3D gaming is still niche; small screen for a gaming rig

Asus G51J 3D


Stereoscopic viewing is mere months away from exploding—or seeping, depending on one's level of zeal and optimism—into our living rooms via new 3-D televisions from mainstream manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic.

Out-of-the-box stereoscopic capability ; Includes 3D Vision glasses backpack, and gaming mouse ; High-end CPU and GPU ; Capable gaming rig

Thick and heavy ; Mid-size display with low resolution ; Lack of 3-D content (save PC games) limits useful applications

The first laptop to incorporate Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology, Asus’ G51J 3D, is a stereoscopic gaming powerhouse.

ASUS G51J 3D Review


The ASUS G51J 3D is an exciting notebook for early adopters who want to take their gameplay to the next level. While we would've liked a higher-resolution screen--and higher frame rates--this rig is more than capable of playing the latest titles. At...

ASUS G51J Review


The G51J is the latest 15-inch gaming notebook from ASUS, sporting the new Intel Core i7 mobile processor and Windows 7 operating system. This notebook shares a lot of features with the previous G51VX, with only a hardware refresh to support the Core...

Improved keyboard tray design ; Speedy Intel Core i7 processor ; 200 price drop compared to previous model

Too much hype in the 1.6 to 2.8GHz overclocking feature

Multimedia performance was excellent as expected, with ample processing power to handle decoding 1080P videos at the same time with barely breaking a sweat. With the Core i7 handling 8 threads at the same time, there was always available overhead to...

When you open the lid of the G51J-1B, you'll find some nice eye candy. The palm rest is covered by rubber-like material that minimizes "sweaty-palm" traction (well, once you remove all those annoying manufacturer stickers). The system features a full...

3D game play done right. 3D glasses work and fit well. Fast Core i7 processor. Good graphics card. Back-lit keyboard. Comfortable palm rests. Dual hard drives. Exceptional sound system

Screen resolution is low for a gaming laptop. 3D effects limited to games only. 3D effects will cost you

If you're a "3D" fanatic, the ASUS G51J-1B 3D has the best technology in place, but it's limited to games and costly compared to Acer's 3D laptop.
