The ASUS G2Pb is equipped with DDR2-667 SDRAM, the fastest memory type available on the Napa platform. Each of its memory slots is occupied by a 1024MB module. The notebook comes with the maximum amount of system memory it can support. Its memory works in dual-channel mode as is indicated by the next screenshot:

We measured the temperature of the hottest spots on the notebook’s surfaces with an infrared thermometer after it had worked for half an hour in the Classic test mode of Battery Eater Pro 2.60 (the ambient temperature remained constant at 23°C during this test) and got the following numbers:

  • LCD panel – 35°C
  • Keyboard – 35°C
  • Bottom panel – 37°C

The next table lists the technical specs of the ASUS G2Pb notebook in comparison with its opponent ASUS A8Jp (for details on this model see our article called Traditions of Classical Notebook Building: Asus A8J Series Review):
