The top of the notebook lid has some cool graphics and lights up with blue LEDs. The effect is very cool in a dark room, making the notebook quite a looker.

The bottom of the notebook is dominated by the single large subwoofer and the doors and cooling grates we expect to see on a notebook.

The keyboard on the G51VX is fantastic. It is a chicklet style keyboard that is backlit with white LEDs.

The notebook's profile isn't exactly thin, but it's not too big either. This machine is of common girth for a gaming rig.

ASUS was nice enough to ship the notebook with a good Razer gaming mouse.

When you spend almost $3,000 on a gaming notebook, you expect little extras. ASUS bundles a notebook backpack with the notebook, which is a good thing considering how large the beast is.
