    Any one that knows how the noise level is for G1SN (and G1S)? I am especially interested in having a computer that is rather quiet when doing nothing, or just simple web-browsing. If it is noisy while gaming, it doesn't bother me too much.

    The temperature is around 75*C when benchmarking no overclock, I'll post more temperatures with overclock mode:

    When doing nothing it's quieter than F8Sn, but noisier than M50Sv, if you are looking for a quiet notebook then get M50Sv.

    I am interested in buying G1Sn, but I have some doubts. Have you tried its performance in any games (and if yes, how it works compared to g1s-b2 (T7700, 8600m GT)? And, my most important question, the main reason for me to buy it is its Blu-Ray drive and I'd like to know your opinion about it in G1Sn.

    If it is the same, why are the 3dMark06 results so different (G1Sn has 4055 pts in 1280x720 and M50SV-A1 only 3580)?
    And what about the Blu-Ray drive?

    One question. Who works in the products ideas in Asus? Homer Simpson or Peter Griffin?

    The M50Sv looks more like a gamer computer than the G1Sn specially in the features thing not the components (processor, screen, etc). M50Sv has a strange multimedia mouse and Altec speakers vs the G1Sn color lights and chasis.

    Asus is insane. :D

    Would there be a way to put a bluray drive into a G1S?

    So.... why didn't they put GDDR3 already? I mean, its predecessor is better

    Yes I see that and the difference is quite huge, maybe G1Sn has 4GB of RAM and it’s running on Vista 64, but still 500 points is a lot.


    That’s because M50SV is newer design than G1 series.


    Yes if you can get one for cheap you can install it your self.


    Yes they should or just want to keep the temperature low, or maybe they want to keep the cost down, 512MB GDDR3 would be very expensive, but people who would buy gaming notebook probably don’t care few hundred dollars more.



    Here are some more temperatures of G1Sn, 79*C max overclocked at 517/1233/470:

    89*C max overclocked at 517/1233/470 while playing Crysis:

    And comparing G1S-B2 and G1Sn-B1 which one do you think is better (mainly for gaming but also other purposes, e.g. in the office)? Which one performes better in games? I still cannot decide whether to buy G1S-B2 or G1Sn-B1 (or wait a month or two for sth new to come).
