    Seeing as how there wasn't an episode, (popcorn aside) JwPwns has made some very good points about the use of the G46.

    As far as to say it's a terrible gaming system that bignazpwns was implying, it is the best of both worlds in terms of portability (battery life) and performance (plugged-in) if you are choosing to go with ASUS. If I required a laptop that would fit both worlds, the G46 is a perfect choice. Some people are loyal to ASUS products and don't mind paying a little more for it, and despite their best efforts to encourage others about their own purchase of systems, bignazpwns simply cannot bare the thought of it. Stop puffing yourself up and over saturating your posts with negativity, and by that I am referring to what your comments do to other who own this system. Think about it..

    Removed posts and given 3 day bans to bigz and Jw. That kind of reaction and attitude is uncalled for. Bigz if you want to troll and wind people up I'll make the ban perma.

    If you feel you've received a personal attack, report the post, don't start willy waving here please because no one can see them.

Unlike the first gen of optimus which was disappointing but that's not the case here. I can squeeze 5 - 6 hours of battery life out of G46 but for G55 i would be happy if it last 2 hours. It's all about how YOU use your laptop and only you can decide what matters more to YOU. I'm just giving you some facts that optimus is really good. not like the person above that havn't tried the new one yet :P

    Is it a bad idea to carry big laptop like G55 everyday?!

    It's good as a gaming rig but if you're going to be doing a lot of productivity work on it then you're going to need to be near an outlet. So it depends. Are you going to be gaming everyday or just typing documents? I have my gaming laptop for portable gaming but I also have a netbook for when I need long battery life.

    After all these posts, I think I might wait for a higher resolution screen and get the g46vw, and since I own a 13 inch right now, i don't really care about a larger screen as mine is just right for me. Thanks everyone! I think it might be good because I like the portability factor of a g46vw
