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 backside of the notebook has the Kensington lock port, a single USB 2.0 port, modem jack, RJ45 port and the power adapter plug.

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.
