SANS - Survey on application security programs

One thing we noticed when running the benchmarks and playing games was that the G51J 3D got pretty warm. A fan does it’s best to vent the hot air, but the left side of the keyboard gets noticeably warm after extended use.

Asus G51J 3D

Impressive performance, but the battery life suffers

Despite its six-cell, 7200mAh battery, the G51J 3D doesn’t cope well when not hooked up to a power socket. In our high-stress PCMark Vantage loop test it managed 1hr 29mins. But with the laptop weighing 3.3kg, this hit on portability probably won’t bother too many potential buyers.

Verdict

As far as 3D goes, the Asus G51J 3D is certainly a more capable machine than Acer’s 5738DZG. Not only is it more powerful, but with the active glasses it can also deliver a better 3D experience. The high price tag is the obvious stumbling block. Prices will no doubt fall if and when 3D finally takes off, but at the moment anyone looking to wave goodbye to 2D will have to pay a rather hefty premium.
