Though also usable for home use or business purposes, the Asus G51Vx is designed to deliver maximum gaming performance. Since it isn't a comfortable size (14.6" x 10.3" weighing 7.3 lbs) to tote around on an everyday basis the laptop is better for consumers who have a mostly sedentary use for it, such as in a college dorm or a home office. It comes with NVIDIA's top of the line GeForce GTX 260M mobile graphics processor, 320GB of storage space and 4GB of DDR2 memory. The Asus G51Vx also comes with Windows Vista Home Premium x64 - the x64 version necessary to take full advantage of the 4GB of memory. Included is the now standard 1.3 megapixel webcam, a SuperMulti DVD optical drive, and an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. At an average price of about a thousand dollars, the Asus G51Vx is a decent buy for anyone looking for a gaming laptop, but not the best deal for any other use.
