Reviews for the Asus G2P

80% Asus G2P-7R009C laptop PC
Source: PC Advisor English
The Asus G2P-7R009C is a big, heavy notebook short on battery life but long on gaming muscle. A big, powerful desktop-replacement PC, the Asus G2P-7R009C is an ideal system for ardent gamers who don't need to travel too much.

The Asus G2P-7R009C is a big, heavy notebook short on battery life but long on gaming muscle. This powerful desktop replacement can handle e-mail and spreadsheets, but the flashing lights and red-honeycomb air pockets won't let you forget that its raison d'être is killing zombies.

80% Asus G2P 17" Core 2 Duo Gaming Notebook Review
Source: PC Perspective English
The notebook we are looking at today is the G2 notebook which comes outfitted with a ATI Radeon Mobility X1700, a large 17" LCD screen, and some unique lighting features. In the end, I think the Asus G2 is a good gaming product for the mid-range market. It doesn't break the bank like your typical SLI notebook and provides some decent game performance. The Asus G2 is a well rounded product offering a excellent balance of price, CPU performance, gaming ability, and slick style. However, if you're really serious about gaming I would suggest researching other models as they may prove to offer more gaming bang for the buck.

Asus G2P Review
Source: notebookforums.com English
Overall this laptop was fun to use; the red accents make this notebook stand out. The performance and specs of the laptop matches most 15.4” notebooks, but in terms of graphics and other 17” notebook there is much to be desired. The notebook is geared towards people looking for an excellent screen, and good CPU performance and average graphical power. It is a desktop replacement for midrange performance and those who wouldn’t mind using a relatively low native resolution. In the end the notebook did meet all my needs in a 17” notebook, except for graphics. Like many we would want something much more powerful like a 7900GS or GTX or an ATI comparable solution. The price is also a bit steep for what you are getting when considering the GPU can be improved. Look forward to other 17” gaming laptops, and possibly the rumored Asus G3.

ASUS G2P - Gaming Specific Notebook
Source: Hot Hardware English
All in all, we are very impressed with our initial take on the new ASUS G2P gaming notebook. Within a few short weeks, we'll be provided with a complete retail package and will be running the system through its paces to see how it stacks up against the other gaming notebooks on the market. At that time, we'll also be showing you a few tricks the ASUS G2P still has up its virtual sleeve. Until then, this preview should let you know that there is a new player in the enthusiast gaming notebook market. Although they have served as an ODM for several of their competitors in this segment, ASUS is now wanting a piece of the pie themselves and are taking this market seriously.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon X1700: Successor of the X1600 and because of strained silicium process it can achieve a higher performance with the same current consumption (more shaders). The Avivo video engine helps decoding (HD) videos.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T7200: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.1":

This large display size is used for laptops which are mainly intended for an use on a desk.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


4.4 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


Asus: ASUSTeK Computer Incorporated, a Taiwanese multinational company, produces motherboards, graphics cards, optical drives, PDAs, computer monitors, notebook computers, servers, networking products, mobile phones, computer cases, computer components, and computer cooling systems. The company's 2007 revenues reached US$6.9 billion. ASUS also produces components for other manufacturers. The Eee PC initiated the netbook boom in 2008.

In the notebook sector, Asus had a global market share of about 11% from 2014-2016, making it the fourth largest laptop manufacturer. In the smartphone sector, Asus is not among the Top 5 and has only a small market share (as of 2016).


83.5%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
