ASUS 3D Vision Laptop
ASUS ROG 3D Gaming Laptop G51J-GZ028VASUS are preparing to release their new G51J-GZ028V laptop. It's a limited edition model, part of the Republic of Gamers line and aims to provide a full stereo 3D gaming experience for users.
It's far from small, measuring 395 x 277 x 44mm and weighing in at around 3.5kg. It comes in a black and blue colour scheme and an illuminated keyboard for late night sessions, as well as Altec Lansing speakers, a 2 megapixel webcam and ASUS' Express Gate instant on operating system built in, no doubt in a quality shell we have come to expect from ASUS.
The biggest feature, however, is the 15.6" LED backlit LCD screen which allows the display of 3D images to be made possible, with it's 120Hz refresh rate. The screen features a full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080, but when in 3D mode it only runs at 1280x720, somewhat disappointing.
The machine also ships with an included pair of wireless 3D glasses, which can be recharged using a standard USB slot.
Elsewhere, we have a 1.6ghz Core i7 720QM processor, a mobile 45nm Lynnfield CPU paired with 4GB of DDR3 memory.
ASUS ROG 3D Gaming Laptop G51J-GZ028VStorage is in the form of a traditional 640GB HD, although an option for two hard drives is there. The graphics horsepower is provided by the GTX 260M with 1GB of video memory. Power is supplied by a 6 cell battery, although there is no information on battery life. To compliment the 1920x1080 resolution of the screen there is also an option for a Blu Ray drive to complete the bundle for those HD media fanatics. Other features include a built in 8 in 1 card reader, eSATA, HDMI ports, gigabit ethernet, WiFi and Bluetooth, meaning it should be difficult to run out of connectivity options.
The G51J laptop will begin shipping, with Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit installed, in late November, just in time for Christmas. We currently have no details on pricing yet, but I don't expect it to be cheap, especially with the price of current 120Hz monitors and gaming laptops at the moment.

I bought a P183 a couple months ago after having a p182 which I was very impressed with. Although, this P183 seems to have a problem. There is a large gap between any expansion card I/O plate and the case. (between the screw holes for mounting) I've tried numerous cards including 2 different GTX 260s and an ADS PCI firewire card, and all display this problem. All other Antec cases, and other brands of cases I've owned, never did this. If you want screw the cards down with my case, it puts a lot of stress on the mobo, making it flex way too much and I believe the cause of frying a few mobos. (I know, stupid me, I shouldn't have been screwing those cards down so tight)

It seems that the mobo standoffs are too high. Not a problem if you could change the standoffs, but they are riveted/permanent in this case.

Antec CS first told me their test case in the office didn't display this problem, then a few days later said theirs DID, but it was normal. :confused:

Anyone else notice this with their P183? Is this normal or did I just get a bad one? I'd say it's not normal as every other case I've owned, the I/O plates of expansion cards were flush with the case.

I'd post a picture or link, but can't since I don't have 15 posts yet. Any help is appreciated.
