I just bought the Asus G50V-X1 from Bestbuy. Listed with N9800M GS 512k graphics. Vista device manager states 9800 GT , but the sticker on the laptop states Geforce 9800M GS 512k. The hard drive is listed as 320GB I have about 298GB free space in two partitions. I believe there is a hidden partition taking up space. 4GB DDR2 Ram. Intel 8400 duo core 2.26GHZ cpu. You can push a button and over clock the CPU to about 2.49 GHZ. So far I like the laptop. I don't know which is considered best though. The hard drive is listed as a ST9320421AS in the device manager, which has 7200 rpm specs according to Seagates website, but the spec advertised is 5400rpm? The outside of the case is blue with a black keyboard and silver trim.
