Asus G51JX-X3 – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
The Asus G51JX-X3 comes in a deep blue color, and offers a typically impressive Asus display. The lit keyboard is a nice touch, even if the keys are slightly slippery. In benchmark tests this notebook achieves the best score in the sub-$1000 category. Anyone wanting a 14-inch gaming notebook will be delighted with this machine at the price.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTS 360M:

Essentially a renamed GTS 260M but with higher clock rates (412 versus 396 Gigaflops, according to Nvidia). The GTS 360M delivers high-end performance with GDDR5 graphics memory.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

15.6": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
