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...

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


3D/2. With the laurels from the G73 series, Asus has managed to hit the bullseye for many gamers. Cool stealth-design with matte surfaces, quiet operating noise, and first class graphics power are definitely priorities. Now Asus is trying to follow in...

Aggressive design, Matte surfaces, Well manufactured, Low heat dissipation, 3D capable display, Backlit keyboard, Big performance reserves, Large memory capacity, USB-3.0 port, Asus stays true to the design line of the G73. We were spared flashing...

Unfavorable interface locations, Soft keyboard base, Limited battery life, Mediocre display resolution, Heavy for a 15 inch notebook, A variant without 3D display, but instead with a higher native resolution. The GTX 460M would definitely have the...

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

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 Reviewed


Want the power of a 17-inch gaming system in a slightly smaller package? Asus took the components from the G73Jh--a Core i7 processor, Nvidia GTX 460 graphics, Blu-ray, and a USB 3.0 port, to name a few--and squeezed them into the 15-inch G53Jw-3DE....

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

Asus G53Jw review


A strikingly designed, high-powered 3D laptop, but it's not without some notable flaws

Good build quality and slim design ; Full Windows 7 for compatibility ; Good specification ; Connectivity

ExoPC user interface needs work ; Battery life poor compared to Android or iPad ; Poor viewing angle if the tablet is flat ; No mainstream distribution yet means limited availability

Over the past twelve months we've seen a range of 3D-capable laptops released by some of world's biggest manufacturers. As well as the polarised screen technology of the Acer Aspire 5738DZG, the Nvidia 3D Vision based Toshiba Satellite A665-11Z and the...
