Asus Steps Up Its Game with G-Series Laptops

They aren't as decked out as Dell's XPS M1710, but Asus' new gaming notebooks still pack enough muscle to take on most games you throw its way. The laptops are based on Intel's Core Duo and Core 2 Duo CPUs. The 15.4-inch G1 will house a GeForce Go7700 video card with 512MB of RAM while the 17-inch G2 will get an ATI Mobility Radeon X1700 with 512MB of RAM. Both laptops will have full-size keyboards along with flashing sidelights that'll light up when playing games (personally we would have preferred more powerful graphics card options). Pricing is still in the works, although Asus is throwing in a matching backpack when you buy one of their lappies.
