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

 

We've been very impressed with Nvidia's 3D Vision technology , which renders most games in pretty impressive 3D, but it requires an investment in compatible hardware, including a 120Hz LCD monitor, approved desktop GPU with dual-link DVI connection,...

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.

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.

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...

ASUS G51J-1B 3D

 

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.
