One of the prime reasons why desktops are still alive is gaming. Gamers form a large portion of the consumer market for the entire computer industry. Gamers are also quite famous in the computer rental industry, as they frequently rent equipment to test compatibility with hardcore computer games. Laptops are among the latest to break into the conservative gaming community.
The latest edition from Asus that was released earlier last week is aimed at the gaming community. Asus claims that the laptop is the world’s first gaming laptop to run on Windows 8. The laptop is also meant to dispel any doubts on the incompatibility of Windows 8 with PC games. The laptop was released amid much skepticism from the gaming community, as many believe that running hardcore PC games such as World of Warcraft and Call of Duty may not be possible on Windows 8.
Asus, on the other hand, believes that the architecture for Windows is ideal for gamers as it requires only minor tweaks to the software to enjoy seamless gaming experience on the new OS. The Asus G55vW is equipped with a third generation Intel Core i7 processor and the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M GPU graphic card which is the latest on the block with a 2GB GDDR5 VRAM. The higher version of the laptop also contains a Blu-Ray player and a 3D display.
Asus is the leading provider of gaming PCs worldwide with innovative hardware designed keeping the gamers in mind. Will the new experiment with Windows 8 pay off? We’ll know about that in a short while, as many gamers are already checking out the innovative new laptop with computer rentals.
