The Asus N61Vg is a high mid-cost notebook laptop, part of the N61 series. Asus promotes this series as being for audiophiles who want multimedia entertainment while on the move. The Video Magic technology of this laptop increases visual quality, and enhances the quality of lesser video sources (DVD quality video will be upgraded to HD). The NVIDIA CUDA technology of the N61Vg aids in GPU computing, and makes multi-tasking and overall performance faster. This means that online gaming will come out in detail, and you will not have to deal with frozen screens. The SonicMaster audio technology fine-tunes sound energy, noise balance, volume and dynamic sound range, while at the same time minimizing interference and distortion. This comes out at 21cc volume from the 2-channel Altec Lansing speakers (which have SRS Premium Sound support). The operating system for this laptop is Genuine Windows 7, and Asus recommends using the 64-bit version as opposed to the 32-bit version, as the 32-bit version will only recognize 3GB of the 4GB memory. The N61Vg differs from the lower cost N61Jq in terms of its processor (the N61Vg has an Intel Core 2 Duo T9600/P8800/P7450/T6600 processor, while the N61Jq has an Intel Core i7 720QM processor), and graphics card (the N61Vg has the NVIDIA GeForce GT220M, while the N61Jq has the ATI Radeon HD 5730 graphics card). The difference between the N61Vg and the flagship N61Vn is also a matter of processor and graphics card (the N61Vn gives you the choice of either the Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 2GHz processor or Intel Core 2 Duo T9600/P8800/P7450/T6600 2.8GHz-2.2GHz processor, and its graphics card is the NVIDIA GeForce GT240M). The Asus N61Vg comes with a two year limited hardware warranty, and a one year battery pack warranty.
