I don't want to start an argument here, so just some facts:
1)Article:"What is important, this notebook is superior to all other models in its class in terms of sheer speed. "
This is just untrue. The G2 is merely in the medium range of its class. The Dell M1710 (just ONE example), scores roughly double the score in most games. Proof: http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=396&type=expert
1) "The ASUS G2P not only competes with desktop gaming stations, it wins the competition!"
This is just a joke. Please show me a SINGLE PC that is marketed as a gaming station that has scores as low as the G2. You won't find one.
Now to your comments:
1)"All modern games will work in normal resolutions like 1280x800 with no AA on high details, and 30 - 60 FPS."
Not correct. Again, please have a look here with benchmarks for the G2 on modern games like F.E.A.R. For information the tests have been run BELOW the native screen resolution on a mere 1024x768 pixels, and still the G2 failed:
"In FEAR, we can see that the X1700 512MB isn't quite up to the task at running FEAR with all the details enabled. 29 FPS average and a sad 11 FPS isn't enough for a smooth gaming experience."
Or, take HL2:Lost Coast (this is not even a actual game, but more than 18 month old):
"Once again the Asus G2 doesn't do too badly, but not enough to play games at the highest screen resolution with a decent amount of details enabled. The emerging picture here is that the X1700 512MB is probably better suited as a mid-range gaming solution, rather than something to compete with the GeForce 7900 series."
Or, how about PREY?:
"In these few Prey test results, we can see what the Asus G2 is capable of at a modest screen resolution of 1024x768. With low details it fares well with a playable frame rate of 44 FPS. But once you increase the shaders and details, performance drops 11 FPS to a still respectable 33 FPS."
You can find the benchmarks in the article linked above.
Please don't get me wrong: I am not saying that the G2 is a bad notebook at all. It is just not what the article advertises - it is NOT the most suitable gaming notebook in its class. There are notebooks out there with triple the gaing power of teh G2 and even if you look only at the more balanced non-SLI products with 17'' screen, there are some out there (i.e. the Dell) that score twice as high, for the same $$$.
To say it competes with any desktop gaming station or even wins is just hilarious and only true if you look at 3-4 years old platforms.
I intentionally did not respond to your insults, I guess you had a hard day today, so enjoy the weekend.
