ASUS Republic of Gamers G51JX-X3

This laptop features Intel’s latest Core i5-430M processor. The Core i5 features dual cores capable of four processing threads.  It is a 64-bit processor that comes with 3 MB of L3 cache, runs at 2.26 GHz (up to 2.533 GHz with Intel TurboBoost) and built on a 32 nm die.  That means lower power, and less heat, which is ideal for a laptop.  The laptop comes with 4GB of DDR3 RAM with a maximum expandability to 8GB.

The display is a 15.6-inch Full HD LED-backlit widescreen with resolution up to 1920 x 1080.  Better than the 1366×768 you find in most value laptops.  The screen is driven by NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M with 1GB DDR5 for high-powered graphics performance. This chip runs at 1436 MHz and has 96 CUDA cores.  Built-in NVIDIA® PhysX™ technology and support for Microsoft DirectX 10.1 means it’s ready for games now.

The 500 GB hard drive rotating at 7200 RPM provides enough space and speed for all your needs. The optical drive is a DVD Super Multi Double Layer Drive. Also included, is an 8-in-1 card reader (MMC/SD/Mini-SD/XD/Memory stick/MS Pro/MS-Duo/MS-Pro Duo).

A nice feature is the illuminated gaming keyboard with numeric keypad so while gaming alone in the dark you can see the keys.

External ports include 1 mic-in, 1 headphone-out, 1 VGA port/Mini D-Sub 15-pin for external monitor, 4 x USB 2.0 ports, 1 x IEEE 1394 port, 1 x RJ45 LAN jack for wired Ethernet, 1 x HDMI, 1 x eSATA, and 1 x Express Card 34/54. Wireless networking uses the 802.11 b/g & draft 2.4GHz n wifi adapter.  It also includes the Latest Bluetooth connectivity (v2.1)+EDR.

This notebook comes preinstalled with Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit). Also, a 2 megapixel webcam and digital array microphone for all your Skyping needs. Face recognition software included with the system can be used to protect your laptop (does not protect against your identical twin).

ASUS offers good support with a 1 year global warranty, 30-day flawless display guarantee: If you discover one defective bright dot within 30 days of purchase, ASUS will replace the panel at no cost. Two-way free standard shipping and 24/7 tech support.

This laptop is powered by a 6-cell lithium-ion battery pack.  Dimensions are 14.8″ x 10.4″ x 1.4″~1.6″.  It weighs in at a hefty 7.27 pounds.
