Review Asus G53JW 3D Gaming Notebook (GTX 460M)

 

3D/2. With the laurels from the G73 series, Asus has managed to h

Aggressive design; Matte surfaces; Well manufactured; Low heat dissipation; 3D capable display; Backlit keyboard; Big performance reserves; Large memory capacity; USB-3.0 port

Unfavorable interface locations; Soft keyboard base; Limited battery life; Mediocre display resolution; Heavy for a 15 inch notebook

On the one hand similarly equipped gamers in the 17 inch domain, most notably the G73JW. Toshibas Qosmio X500 offers comparable hardware. The MSI GX740 as well as the Deviltech 9700DTX adopt ATIs HD5870 graphics card. More compact are the MSI GX640...

Review Update: Asus G53JW Notebook FullHD TFT

 

3D? No thanks. Asus' latest G series bids gaming in 17 and 15 inc

Aggressive design; Matt case surfaces; Good workmanship; Low heat development; Low noise emissions; FullHD display; Keyboard light; High performance reserves; High memory capacity; USB 3.0 port

Unfavorable interface positioning; Spongy keyboard; Limited battery life; High weight for a 15 inch notebook

The similarly constructed G53JW with a 3D display or the larger Asus G73JW with the same equipment. Toshiba also has a GTX 460M gamer, the Qosmio X500, however in an oversized 18 inch case. More compact solutions are also found in Schenker's XMG P500...

Asus G53SW-A1

 

Gamers who demand power, style, and strong audio will really like what the ASUS G53SW-A1 has to offer.

The $1,449 ASUS G53SW-A1 offers a great combination of blazing-fast graphics, a gorgeous display, and rich audio. Our biggest issue is the keyboard, which not only has an undersized number bad but exhibits a lot of flex. You also have to think about...

ASUS G53SW-A1 Review

 

ASUS has shrunk down its popular 17.3-inch G73 gaming notebook into a more manageable 15.6-inch size with the introduction of its G53SW. Is this travel-friendly gaming laptop as impressive as its bigger brother? Keep reading to find out.

Good quality 1080p screen ; Excellent performance ; Runs cool and quiet ; Good value

Keyboard flex ; Touchpad buttons need improvement

ASUS G53Jw-3DE

 

A 3D notebook that justifies its high price with intense gaming action and plenty of style.

On its own, the Asus G53Jw-3DE is a powerful 3D gaming notebook: You get a Core i7 processor, Nvidia graphics, 3D display, and Blu-ray for $1,769. Another good choice in this category is the HP Envy 17 3D, which not only has a larger, brighter, and...

ASUS G53JW-3DE Core i7 GTX 460M 3D Vision Gaming Notebook Review

 

ASUS has been seriously challenging the custom-order companies with its own pre-built options over the last few years. While the earlier models were good, the more recent launch of the ASUS G73 was, I think, the company's declaration that it intends to...

Consumer review by:

Too much wasted potential.

 

The fact that I've not room to fit all the cons is rather telling. -_- Repairs (cont.): Now, blanking the hard drive for an irrelevant repair, while massively rude, would be understandable if some idiotic standard. That said, they -did it wrong-. A...

Specs: The specs of the laptop itself just can't disappoint. I've been able to run multiple games at once without the slightest stutter, 3d modeling, videos, music-- all simultaneously, really, if I'm so scatterbrained. I could go over the specs, but...

Trackpad: (see other thoughts) ; Display: In pros and cons? Yes, well, while I happen to like the display, it also -came unplugged-. From no more strain than being picked up and moved about, in a case, for travel. A bit absurdly insecure, but the...

Bad Laptop

 

Buy something else.

It looks pretty

Power pins break, gets as hot as my car engine (not literally, but you get the idea), ASUS RMA service sucks (had to pay shipping twice...)

Consumer review by:

It was decent while it lasted

 

I've had a few other ASUS products that have been good (monitors etc.) that I luckily haven't had to send in for repairs.

fast ; i7 ; decent battery ; good amount of RAM ; 1920x1080 w/ decent screen size ; price

Dust/dirt magnet ; Heavy ; Clunky ; Battery charger broke after a few months, couldn't charge at all ; ASUS support sucks ; ASUS' website is hard to navigate ; I sent in my laptop to get the battery charger repaired and it came back with the side all...
