The ASUS Gamers G51JX-X3 looks really interesting for that price, I have to agree that the website looks a bit ... erm ... dodgy though.

pleeez, maybe you don't like the colours, but nothing dodgy.
I work with them doing this and that and actually have one of these G51Jx in front of me...you welcome to come view it.

Nothing to do with the colors - the website looks like a student hobbled it together - but everyone can have their own opinion. It doesn't necessarily have anything to do with their level of professionalism though.

Thank you for the offer - can you substantiate the reported high heat when working and how long does the battery last (just working, not playing)

dodgy...pffft:wtf:
As stated earlier, that is my opinion.

Seems active since 1997 as a store... as they say.

But really, there is no excuse for looking kark online... polish it up a bit, it is your shopfront if you are an online store. People will walk passed a computer store that looks like a KFC! Online Electronic traders should look a bit professional online... that is all.

BUT then again... you get Incredible Connection and their awful site too!!!

Wootware is a nice example of a site that works. Looks OK and importantly is very functional.

Actually, I would make my store look EXACTLY like KFC! I am sure every computer store would love the amount of walk-ins that KFC has ;)

For the price range of R10k - R12k I would personally recommend the Asus N61JQ Intel Core i7 Quad Core Notebook. www.aureustech.co.za
It comes with a 16" Screen, 4Gb Memory and ATi Radeon Graphics. The last time we checked they were in limited supply. So you should hurry up :)

Apparently the ATI is less powerful than the nVidia, the G51JX-X3 boasts. Interesting that you can get the N61JQ for less than the G51JX-X3 in the States though. Not sure that I will need the quad core though, surely this will only make a difference if the software actually uses them, right?

Then again, it has been reported that the G51JX-X3 has some overheating/bsod issues ... anyone out there that owns one and would like to comment?

Which ATI and which nVidia would that be?

And if you look on that website, the nVidia GTS360M falls in the lower Class 1 segment, where the ATI 5730 falls in the mid Class 2 segment? Not exactly something you can claim with that nVidia is more powerful, due to comparing a lower specced card to a higher rated product? Just a thought. :)

The NVidia GTS 3xxM series does not have DirectX 11 support, where as the HD 5xxx Mobility does have.

It's a shame the GTS 4xxM series isn't available in SA, or it's just too expensive (R15k+).
