My Gears – ASUS G1 Gaming Notebook


Just got this real hot notebook for my gaming needs as my Toshiba M40 (2 years old) is experiencing a lot of lag due to the new graphics requirements of the new expansion for my favourite MMORPG, Dark Age of Camelot. I will run it a few days and let you all know how it goes. So far, the screen is just beautiful. Other accessories included a Logitech MX518 rebranded mouse (1600 dpi optical mouse, great for gaming) and a backpack (pretty rare item, see detail review below for pic and info).


Best feature: the ASUS Direct Messenger as shown in the above pic. Not only would it display time and battery condition, it can also be configured to display incoming emails, MSN, Skype, Outlook meeting notifications on it, pretty cool addition. You can even input free text such as “My Gaming Notebook” to impress others.

System configuration: Windows XP Professional SP2; 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7200; 2,048MB DDR2 SDRAM 667MHz; 512MB Nvidia GeForce Go 7700; 160GB Seagate 5,400rpm SATA/150; 1.3 Mega Pixels Web Cam; WSXGA+ (1680 x 1050) displayed on a 15.4-inch TFT screen.
