View Full Version : Joining the ROG. (Is the G55VW the right choice?)

I would like to buy a new gaming laptop and my decision making can't go any further because of 2 laptops.

Asus G55VW and Lenovo Y580.

I asked several friends about these and the result is 50/50.

What do YOU think of these two, which would you recommend and WHY?

Thank you for your opinions and advices in advance.

Both have problems to start with, so no one is perfect.

G55 runs cooler with less noise, is lap friendly, feels solid.

Cons: mSATA, WiFi card, 2 RAM modules, fans - all are hidden and hard to access.

Maybe you can find a G75 for the same price.

G75 is too big for me.
Anyways, G75 is +250 euros in my country.

Then I would say it's more like pick your poison since none is perfect. A lot of users complain about problems with Y580.
