Resplendent in red lacquer trim with blue lighting details, the Asus G71V is a smart looking machine boasting a powerful 2.53GHz Core 2 Extreme processor, Blu-ray Disc drive and nVidia GeForce 9700M graphics card. The Asus G71V is a relatively well-rounded entertainment laptop, capable of showing Blu-ray films at full high-definition quality, as well as playing modern 3D games. It has vast amounts of storage, and good raw performance thanks to four 2.53GHz processor cores.

When you place yourself and this notebook in any comfortable position you prefer, you will notice that Vista simply “flies” and applications react almost instantly at your commands. Unfortunately gaming performances aren’t on same level as rest of this notebook. Simply put, native resolution is too much for nVIDIA 9700GT graphics card and this will result in usage of middle of low settings in most contemporary games. If you don’t mind playing games with settings not set at “High” (or “Highest”) than this can be model for you. If you want to play games on “High” and enjoy in best gaming experience on notebook then you must wait a little bit more for some of models that will have slightly slower CPU and better graphics card.

The ASUS G71G-X1 is the gaming version of their new G71 series desktop replacements. This means the system lacks features such as the Blu-ray drive found on the A versions but instead features a more powerful GeForce 9800M mobile graphics. Even though it is performance oriented with the high speed Core 2 Duo, ASUS decided to use DDR2 memory to cut down on costs but it also holds back the system in memory intensice applications. Overall, a good system for computer gaming but might not be as good for general purpose computing.

Good job we found the Asus G71 online at a price substantially cheaper than the SRP of two grand. Despite its size, it does look quite lovely too – although the red case flashes and strobing LED trim clashes with the relatively restrained keyboard and touchpad.

Forget Alienware and its overhyped, overpriced machines - there’s a new kid on the block. Okay, so ASUS isn’t exactly a new company, but the Taiwan-based manufacturer best known for its über-quality peripherals (motherboards, graphics cards, and the like) now wants to dominate the high-end gaming space. Substance, style & performance, the G71V will revolutionise your mobile gaming experience.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9700M GT: Successor of the 8700M GT and technically a higher clocked 9600M GT. Improved video engine for decoding HD videos (PureVideo HD - VP2), HybridPower, CUDA, and PhysX support.

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.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


17.0": Meanwhile the 17 inch display size is a more frequently offered standard format for desktop-replacements. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.
» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


3.9 kg: This laptop is heavy below average, compared with the average of notebooks. Therefore especially desktop replacements fit in this class of weight.


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.

Asus reviews


80.44%: 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.
