Review Asus G60VX Gaming Notebook

 

A Gamers' Dream? Asus shows courage for design and equips the G60

Futuristic design; Many connections; Very high performance; Stable turbo mode; Mouse and backpack included; Express Gate

Poor display lid stability; Slightly yielding keyboard; Fairly high noise development; Low battery life; Medium display brightness; Disappointing sound

Weaker, but cheaper gaming notebooks like the MSI GX623 or MSI GT628. Other efficient gaming notebooks under 1500 Euros like the MSI GT725 or the Asus G71GX.

Asus G60VX-RBBX05

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our 2009 Retail Laptop and Desktop Holiday Roundup , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

Affordable; excellent gaming performance; backlit keyboard and separate number pad.

Bulky body; poor battery life; screen isn't 1080p.

Packed with a great graphics card and good audio, but lacking Intel's latest Core i7 chip, the Asus G60VX-RBBX05 is a very solid all-around gaming solution for less than $1,000.

Gaming laptops occupy a strange space in the market. Most hardcore PC gamers like to tweak and upgrade their machines, so opt for cheaper, upgradable desktop towers that they build themselves. More casual gaming fans make do with lower performance on...

Great keyboard, respectable performance

Low screen resolution, poor battery life

Great keyboard, respectable performance

Low screen resolution, poor battery life

"The Asus G60Vx is an acceptable series of compromises. The screen resolution has been cut so that the performance delivers. The speakers aren't amazing, but the keyboard is pretty good. The battery life is terrible, but things don't get too hot up...

A new gaming laptop from Asus coincides with weather perfect for playing in the park. Should you take the ROG G60 outside?

A catchy design that's packed full of top components, but the screen and keyboard let it down

Asus G60VX

 

In a world where technology is steadily shrinking, gaming laptops are a stubborn exception to the rule. Uncompromised gaming power requires powerful components, and while that's fine in the roomy environs of a desktop tower, it's more of a challenge in...

Power, strong build and plenty of style and panache make this a gaming laptop worth paying for

"Runs really REALLY hot."

 

Good graphics card

Overheats constantly (forced shutdowns)

"Best Laptop I've owned"

 

Fast and reliable. Love the widescreen display.

Problems with drive tools not working. Battery life could have been better.
