Reviews for the Asus G60VX

79% Review Asus G60VX Gaming Notebook | Notebookcheck
A Gamers' Dream? Asus shows courage for design and equips the G60VX with a white notebook lid with a futuristic stamp. There is also a Core 2 Duo T9400 and a GeForce GTX 260M that provide for exceptional performance values inside of the 16.0 inch case. We have looked at the notebook closer and clarified the question if Asus has achieved to make a replete gaming notebook with the G60VX that can impress even beyond its looks.

Will this give you your gaming fix? The Asus G60Vx is an acceptable series of compromises. The screen resolution has been cut so that the performance delivers. The speakers aren't amazing, but the keyboard is pretty good. The battery life is terrible, but things don't get too hot up top. If you're dead set on buying a gaming laptop, then the G60Vx is a respectable option at around £1350. If you're not going to be carting it around a lot, though, then there's little to recommend buying this over a more capable gaming desktop at two-thirds of the price.

83% Asus G60Vx

In a world where technology is steadily shrinking, gaming laptops are a stubborn exception to the rule. Uncompromised gaming power requires powerful components, and while that's fine in the roomy environs of a desktop tower, it's more of a challenge in a notebook chassis. There's no question you pay a hefty premium for gaming laptops, but at £1,163, the Asus G60Vx is one of the most affordable around. The generous specification makes much of the competition look stingy, and the combination of good looks, sturdy build quality and overall panache makes this one of the most tempting gaming laptops we've seen.

70% Asus G60Vx - Gaming Laptop

On paper, and in the tests, the G60Vx acquits itself pretty well. There's not much wrong with a 2.53GHz Core 2 Duo, 4GB RAM and a Blu-Ray drive, after all. Add in the quality keyboard and the not horrific styling and you might think it's a product well on its way to a recommendation. And in some respects, it does get close - after all, it's a gaming laptop which can play a good number of modern games at the native resolution of its panel. The problem is said panel is poor quality, and the resolution is irritatingly low for 2D usage. Add in the fact that Radeon HD 4850 equipped machines are as quick in gaming and tend to be cheaper and we think you'll see why we've concluded the G60Vx is far from perfect for most people.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M:

The Nvidia GeForce GTX 260M is essentially a higher clocked GeForce 9800M GTX based on the G92b core built under a 55nm manufacturing process. Because of the architectural difference, the 260M is less powerful (and quite dissimilar) to the similarly named desktop GeForce GTX 260.

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


T9400:

The T9400 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and basically a Core 2 Duo P9500 with a higher TDP of 35 Watt.

16.0":

15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.

3.44 kg:

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