Laptop Review – ASUS G53JW-XA1 Gaming Laptop
If you’ve been looking long and hard to dominate your competition, the Republic of Gamers ASUS G53JW-XA1 is your ticket to ride. Featuring a slew of features that obliterate the minimum requirements and a pile of specifications worth looking twice at, this is a gamer’s laptop for the ages. It may be among the more highly priced models on the market, but with this kind of performance it’s hard to imagine this unit is not worth it.
Start with a 1.73GHz Intel Core i7-740QM quad-core processor with Turbo Boost Technology to 2.93GHz. Add in an amazing 500GB hard drive clocked at 7,200rpm and a striking 6GB of DDR3 RAM expandable to 16GB and you’ve got one of the most instantly powerful laptop computers out there.
Graphics is the name of the game in a gaming computer, though, and the ASUS G53JW-XA1 takes this matter seriously. With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M graphics with 1.5GB of GDDR5 VRAM for DirectX gaming superiority, the Republic of Gamers laptop is a scorcher. This allows you to create and enjoy 3D effects and hang with the best gamers in the world.
In terms of display, the ASUS G53JW-XA1 rocks a 15.6-inch LED-back-lit HD display for brilliant clarity and crisp imagery. HDMI connectivity allows for this unit to become something more with a simple HDTV. And the Altec Lansing speakers with EAX 4.0 lets you get all the best out of your enhanced acoustics. 1080p HD playback adds yet another dimension of detail.
Amazingly enough, the Republic of Gamers computer is based on the design of a stealth fighter. Featuring internal components placed near the air vents for cooling and a back-lit keyboard for working in the dark, this ASUS unit provides fantastic usability. The keyboard is even ergonomically designed at a five-degree slant, tapered specifically for comfortable use.
