December 31, 2014

Asus G551 Laptop Review
Any computer that is meant for gaming has to have some pretty unique qualities. Besides performance, it also has to have the ability to keep its internal temperatures down. The new Asus ROG G551 laptop is meant for just that and you can check out the specs below. This computer has full HD features that any gamer would love.

ReviewsThe Asus G551 (part of the new g-series) comes with a SILENT cooling system. That’s right. You read correctly. In the past, I’ve had to buy some aftermarket fan cooling platforms for my laptop to sit on…on top of an ergonomic lap stand. What a bulky waste of space. Not with this bad boy though.

You don’t have to worry about turning down the processing speed or anything. What a novel concept right? If you’re looking for the best possible video quality, this thing comes with a NVIDIA GeForce GTX850M graphics with Microsoft DirectX 11 installed. Boom.

Asus G551 Laptop Review & Specs

The Asus ROG G551 laptop specs are really something to note! It runs on Intel i7 processors with a capability to support all of the hottest and most resource-hogging games out there. You get a full 1920x 1080 display and you’d literally think that the objects on your screen are coming to life. With a headphone amplifier built right in, the combination of power, awesome visuals, and silent cooling make for a great gaming experience. The Asus G551 laptop specs are completely amazing and this is a one of a kind machine that has a great price point as well. You can pick one up for under a grand. Oh yeah, you get a back-lit keyboard as well.

My Review of the NEW Asus G551 Laptop

The Asus G551 (technically the ASUS ROG GL551JM-DH71) has everything that gamers around the world are needing. A powerful laptop that not only lets you play with zero lag time, but also sounds and looks amazing should be high on everyone’s priority list, but I guess we all can’t be gamers. The cost of the Asus G-Series is pretty affordable. You can buy one for around a grand, or get the 17” version for $300 more. This laptop is built for us in mind. The true gamer who loves great performance at only a nominal price.
