Asus G71Gx notebook


The Asus G71Gx is the latest laptop in the Taiwanese company's gaming line-up, and balances a powerful GPU with a high-end quad-core Intel processor. Although it only has a single graphics card, it's also a lot cheaper than many high-end gaming...

Vivid screen, quad-core processor offers loads of power, comfortable keyboard

Lags behind twin-GPU gaming laptops for performance, design won’t suit all tastes

The G71Gx can’t match some of the more expensive gaming laptops when it comes to sheer power, but it does strike a good compromise between price and performance. The quad-core processor sets it apart from many of its rivals when it comes to...

Asus G71 review


It's got four cores and a full terabyte of storage, but is it enough to make the G71 the ultimate games machine?

A good-looking laptop, but not enough gaming power to justify the price

A good balance of price and power, but not the ultimate gaming machine

Great performance ; Decent screen resolution ; Blu-ray drive ; Connectivity

DDR2 memory could be better

Asus G71 review


A fantastic multimedia laptop, for those who can afford it

Plenty of storage ; Excellent screen ; Blu-ray drive

Lacklustre performance

If you're after a gaming machine, best to look elsewhere. Otherwise, this is a great multimedia laptop with an impressive spec

Asus G71Gx review


A huge screen and Blu-ray drive are ideal for HD films, but average 3D performance doesn't justify the price.

Asus G71Gx 7T012K - The more, the better


The Asus G71 is one of the first gaming laptops to offer a heavy-duty, multi-core processor. The G71 is powered by an Intel Core 2 Quad Q900 processor at 2 GHz and sports Nvidia's GeForce GTX 260M GPU, 6 GB RAM and a 640 GB hard drive. In addition to...

Good for multi-core applications ; High display resolution ; Plenty of accessories ; Blu-ray drive

Battery life ; Resolution of secondary operating system

The Asus G71 is a strong computer that can handle most tasks with ease. The powerful quad-core processor is great for applications that support multi-core processors, which in the future will become more and more common. The computer's GPU also...

Asus G71GX-RX05 review: Asus G71GX-RX05


Asus G71GX-RX05

Good components for cost; secondary instant-on Linux OS; separate number pad.

Big, heavy, and power hungry; mixed performance; lights can't be completely shut off; no dedicated media controls.

The Asus G71GX-RX05 is a solid gaming-oriented desktop replacement, but with a few shortcomings that could make or break a purchasing decision.

Review Asus G71GX Gaming-Notebook


A Dream for Gamers? With the G71GX, Asus has a 17 inch notebook i

Nice design; Good keyboard and touchpad; Many connections; Blu-Ray drive; Windows 7 upgrade voucher

Very loud; First useable with bios 1201...; ...but still single performance crashes; Workmanship and material isn't optimal; Average display; Poor performance in state of delivery

Other efficient and 17 inched gaming notebooks in the field of 1300 Euros, like the GT725 from MSI.

Asus G71


Lit touchpad. Full-sized keyboard and numpad. 1920x1200 screen. Overclocking options. Speakers better than usual. Mostly good quality extras. Excellent design.

LED overkill. So very expensive. Low battery life. 32-bit Vista. A smarter configuration could have been chosen.

The G71 is an excellent system. It's expensive, and there's a few missteps Asus has made with hardware configuration, bling and the inclusion of a 32-bit version of Windows, but by and large with this system you get what you pay for — assuming your...
