Reviews for the Asus G53JW
3D/2. With the laurels from the G73 series, Asus has managed to hit the bullseye for many gamers. Cool stealth-design with matte surfaces, quiet operating noise, and first class graphics power are definitely priorities. Now Asus is trying to follow in the footsteps of the success of its bigger brother, with a more compact 15 inch model.
If I were to spend almost a lakh on a gaming laptop, I would definitely get this one by paying 10 percent extra, mainly for the looks and performance. Also, the 3D gaming on this machine is way better on this one.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M:
High-end DirectX 11 graphics card based on the GF106 chip using GDDR5 graphics memory (up to 1.5 GB).
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
