ASUS today unveiled its new ASUS G70 notebook featuring powerful dual-graphics based on the highly acclaimed NVIDIA SLI technology, as well as the support of dual hard drives and 8GB of system memory for optimal transfer rates. The new G70 delivers a new level of immersive cinematic graphics with an unprecedented combination of computing power and gaming performance.

Powerful Performance On-the-go
The ASUS G70 is designed for the serious computer enthusiast, and is also aimed at users who want to enjoy high-definition video on their notebooks. Armed with a stunning 17" diagonal widescreen display with a native resolution of 1920x1200 and a pair of powerful NVIDIA GeForce 8700M GT graphics processing units (GPUs) with 1GB of dedicated memory, the ASUS G70 is able to maximize long-term entertainment value and advanced visual quality to provide an uninterrupted thrill-packed adventure. Gamers will be able to play the most system-resource demanding games while running multiple applications in the background seamlessly.

Covered in brushed aluminum, the G70 looks and feels like a suit of armor. The gently curved edges lend it designer appeal, and this design is continued throughout the keyboard and the touch pad areas.

The G70 is designed to be more than a mobile gaming powerhouse. Preloaded with a robust array of multimedia features including a pair of built-in Altec Lansing stereo speakers, a subwoofer, an embedded TV tuner, a remote control, and an integrated webcam. These features ensure that the G70 is capable of performing flawlessly to any tasks regardless of media type. In addition, the G70 sports a DVD super multi drive to allow users to take high definition theater experiences on the go using the integrated HDMI (high-definition multimedia interface) connection.

some pics would have ben nice Jimmy - anyhoo. i will have one of these to takeaway kaithnxbai


P.S

i admit its overkill for a laptop but maybe they will sell versions which have less ram thus costing less - but even if they did that DDR2 ram for laptops aint that expensive anymore. here in the UK a shop was selling 1Gb of DDR2 667Mhz laptop ram at 20-30UK/Ps
