The popular G53 series has been updated to feature Intel's 2nd generation Core i5/i7 for an even faster notebook. With performance rivaling that of a desktop computer, the G53SX is ready for anything that you throw at it, from office applications to video encoding and gaming.
With its eye-catching design, the G53SX deploys unique cooling and noise dampening, with two huge rear venting exhausts that push both heat and noise away from users. This results in a cool and quiet environment.

something that well invested in is this laptop. its a amazing computer and beats all other competition like dell and sony etc with all their technical issues. with this computer i had no technical issues.Those specs are solid, but this thin laptop still lacks Intel's new Sandy Bridge processors, and its battery life suffers in comparison with other thin laptops. While that may not bother some, it can't hurt to wait a few months and see what updates might be around the corner, especially since our initial tests of Sandy Bridge laptop CPUs show a great deal of promise.
Only had it a few days so this is just a first impression - What a beaut! - This laptop looks and feels like my perfect ideal for a laptop, understated (no crappy chrome-esq plastic, big glowing lights etc)just a very nice matte black soft finish, nice lines, small(ish) logo, everything looks and feels so solid it just comes together and seems right, a good weight, its not trying to be sleek and light, its just doing one job (high performance) and that is how it looks and feels, I will put up with the weight (not that bad in the included rucksack). So my first impression is very favorable. So I'm in the process of getting all the software sorted out, which i guess is fun.
I purchased the Asus laptop based on a recommendation from my son, who has had an Asus for the last 2 years. The G53SX is a great PC! It was delivered early and was exactly what I had ordered, all parts in place and ready to rock and roll! I wanted a good gaming machine for Lord of the Rings Online, and it is just perfect for it! The HD screen is wonderful. It's a somewhat heavier laptop, but I chalk that up to the fact that it is made out of sturdy, quality, materials. Oh, one thing that I should mention is how quiet this laptop is. Compared to my older HP laptop, I barely know I am running anything, even my hi-def game! And it is super-cool, temperature-wise, too! I've had it for about a month or so and am very happy with it!
