Asus G50V is good for everyone

Considering the popularity of MMO games these days, there are many who want nothing more than to take their virtual RPG characters on the road. Gaming laptops tend to be on the expensive side, and many will cost a few thousand dollars. However, Asus has recently released the relatively inexpensive G50V.

The Asus G50V is packed with many internal bonuses including a 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T9400 processor, an Nvidia GeForce 9700M GT 512 graphics card, and 4GB 800MHz DDR2 RAM. Additional features include a 2.0-megapixel webcam, a DVD burner, plus a 15-inch screen with 1,680 x 1,050 resolution.

There is also a small OLED secondary display that sits above the keyboard to display the system status, Instant Messenger, and even e-mail alerts. The entire unit weighs in at a light 6.2 pounds.

The unit with DVD burner is about $1699, but you can get the G50V Blu-ray equipped for about $1,899. It even comes with a backpack and a Logitech MX518 mouse.
