New Asus DX10 Gaming Notebooks

Some exceptional looking offerings from ASUS if you're on the lookout for a new notebook. The new Santa Rosa powered ASUS G1 and G2 notebooks have some quite impressive specs:

Both machines seem to be powered by a new Core 2 Duo mobile T7500 which is clocked at 2.2GHz and has 4MB of L2 cache. This has been paired with 2GB of DDR2 memory and the P965M chipset. Both machines will have a 256MB GeForce Go 8600M graphics card, although no specifics of these cards where mentioned. The G1 will have a 15-inch widescreen display with a resolution of 1,680x1,050 while the G2 gets a 17-inch display with a resolution of 1,920x1,200.

Both machines will have SATA hard drives, the G1 should have a 160GB drive and the G2 a 200GB drive. Sadly it seems like these are only 5,400rpm drives, so not ideal for a gaming system. Other features include 802.11n wireless networking, Gigabit Ethernet, 1.3Mpixel web camera, integrated TV-tuner, Super Multi DVD writer, S/PDIF out, DVI, TV-out and Windows Vista Home Premium

ASUS G1

Pricing is unknown at the present

Ok just got a x-fi gamer and hooked it up to my medusa's.... and i have no bass! I dont get bass period, not through the headset or my speakers :( ive googled this and it seems to be a common problem with medusa's on the x-fi's. Does anyone know of a fix? ive tried changing all the settings and have had no luck :( can anyone shed some light please, thanks.

I don't have Medusa's so this is a stab in the dark...

In the Creative Console Launcher once you have selected '5.1' in the 'Speakers' tab, an option called 'enable bass redirection' appears in the 'Bass' tab. Does selecting this option and moving the 'crossover frequency' slider gradually from one extreme to the other have any effect? Apologies if you've already tried this. :)

I tired that before but now i have it working!!! Not really sure how, i just ran the creative speaker connection wizzard, with all hardware on this time, then went into the THX control pannel and put my speakers all to small and it worked! It now seems fine and the quality is better than my old Audigy 2 :D

ROFL. Dontcha just love problems that seem to miraculously fix themselves? When that happens to me I'm scared to touch anything in case I break it again.
