The G50V, which runs on the latest Intel Centrino 2 (Montevina) technology, is the updated version of the highly popular G1Sn gaming laptop.

It is powered by a fast Core 2 Duo T9400 (2.53GHz) processor, and paired with 4GB DDR2 RAM and 2GB of Intel Turbo Memory!

A 15.4″ screen is fitted on the G50V which is able to display a high resolution of 1680 x 1050. To drive this amount of pixels smoothly, ASUS has employed NVIDIA’s latest GeForce 9700M GT 512MB chip to take care of graphics.

So what’s the asking price? $3098. But you get stuff like a gaming mouse, ASUS G-series backpack, gaming headset, and Microsoft Office 2007!

Moving on to ASUS’ netbook section, the premium Eee PC S101 is retailing at $1098 (with a free Targus bag). Underneath its keyboard lies an Intel Atom N270 (1.6GHz) processor and 1GB DDR2 RAM. Instead of conventional mechanical hard drives, the S101 comes with a 16GB solid state disk (SSD) which has no moving parts.

SSDs are better if you’re a clumsy user as hard disk failure and data loss caused by drive heads crashing is completely eliminated.
