Back again with a new notebook and this time we are checking out the ASUS G51VX gaming notebook. It is a very nice change of pace to see a full on gaming notebook sitting on my desk rather than another netbook. ASUS is certainly more known for its netbooks than anything else, but the company knows how to build a nice gaming notebook, too.
Gaming notebooks are an odd breed of machine that are really not a notebook in so much as most of us expect them to be. You don't expect good battery life out of a gaming notebook; you don't expect it to be lightweight and you don't expect it to run cool. What you expect is for the machine to offer lots of gaming prowess.
As long as a gaming notebook can be carried to and from the LAN party without giving you a hernia, gamers are usually OK with the size of the machine. You have to make compromises with any gaming notebook; they are expensive, loud and lack power compared to gaming desktops. However, for certain users the gaming notebook is the way to go. If you are that type of user, the ASUS G51VX I am checking our today may be exactly what you need.
