The touchpad has a plain black matte surface, which is easy to track on. I monitored the temperatures during a gaming session using HWMonitor , and got the following results:. The main benefit of the larger chassis is the inclusion of a separate number pad, but the downside is slightly reduced portability. The mouse is a well-respected Logitech MX gaming mouse. Under full load, the only sound to be heard is a rush of air — motor noise is thankfully absent.

The two buttons are aluminum and easy to locate and press. Truthfully, the P or at most P is sufficient for all but the most extreme users and would cost quite a bit less, or four bit more money you could asis the P that has a lower power requirement but the same performance as the T This is a nice touch.
That’s a lot g50b negatives, but besides the lower hcipset there’s one major positive: The only real flex is found in the number pad, but it is slight. I would like to see other functionality added to this, such as frames per second FPS readings during games.

Battery life as we will see in a moment is nothing special, and it would have been nice to get a bit more performance from RPM drives – or more storage from RPM drives. Gamers in the market for a well-priced If these had no name brand, I would have dismissed them as typical notebook speakers, but given the brand-name badge, they should have produced better sound. It is a much more accurate benchmark for dual-core CPUs.

The G50V is made of strong plastic and has a solid feel. The T processor is only one notch down from the X, and the built-in overclocking allows you to run at up to 2. The G50V-A1 lasted about two hours in my battery test in power saving mode while surfing the Internet. It’s a heavier notebook, almost as large as most 17″ offerings, but the features, build quality, warranty, and accessories add up to a very good overall package.
There is basically no display wobble. As I noted, the G50V is larger than a typical The hinges securely anchor the display to the base of the notebook, and the lid itself is rigid and is hard to twist.
