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

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...

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.

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...

Asus ROG G53JW-IX162V review

 

The Asus ROG G53JW-IX162V 3D laptop hits a great sweet spot between price, performance and features on a small chassis

Expert review by:

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

However, the flawed screen and slightly limited usability prevent it from truly excelling and, if you can live without the 3D screen, there are plenty of far better rival multimedia and gaming laptops you could spend your money on.

Asus G53JW review

 

The 15.6-inch Asus G53JW-IX162V offers great performance and built-in 3D capability. As such, if you can get past its unique design, this gaming laptop is sure to satisfy.

Great performance ; Built-in 3D capability ; High usability ; Can't be seen on enemy radar

Highly questionable design ; No VGA port

In summary, the Asus G53JW-IX162V offers excellent performance, though you'll pay for the privilege. It's very usable, thanks to the comfortable keyboard and trackpad, and it offers either excellent or utterly hideous design, depending on how you feel...
