When I bought this notebook I didn't know what to expect. I was really surprised to see this notebook be able to play games like Crysis and Mass Effect 2 with as much ease as my quad core desktop. In some games like Call of Duty Black Ops performance was a little iffy at times, but I believe it is due to a lack of ram.
This notebook definitely surpassed every expectation of mine, and given it's design it is easy to upgrade things like the WiFi card, add Bluetooth capabilities and even replace the keyboard in case if it breaks.
Only a few drawbacks though.. The touch pad failed soon after I bought it but I was able to replace it, and I am almost ready to replace the replacement soon. The light up keyboard is nice, but the keys break easy and can split in half. I ended up using the keyboard from the G50 series, which does fit but does not have the light up keys. The battery life is incredibly short though, but I suppose that is the trade off with performance verses power.
Powered by a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260M graphics card, the ASUS G60 offers users a completely class of physical gaming interaction for a more realistic and dynamic experience. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX260M also features 1GB DDR3 RAM, which performs significantly better than the standard DDR2 video memory. The performance of the ASUS G60 is a leap from the other 15 or 16-inch mainstream notebooks that produce scores ranging from 2000 to 3000.
