ASUS A7G Notebook Specifications/Details with Pictures

Post by Apoptosis » Tue Nov 29, 2005 2:12 pm

I have recently had the chance to spend an afternoon with soon to be released ASUS A7G notebook. This notebook is unreleased and features the next generation ATI discrete graphics solution.

ASUS A7G Notebook Features:

First shipping notebook featuring ATI's Next Generation Mobility Radeon Graphics
- 128MB (128-bit) GDDR3
- All in One Digital Multimedia Center
- Intel® Centrino™ Mobile Technology
- 1.60 – 2.13GHz Pentium® M
- 533MHz FSB
- 2MB L2 Cache
- Mobile Intel® 915PM Express Chipset
- 17” Widescreen Color Shine LCD
- Built-in 1.3 Megapixel camera
- Analog TV (A7Gb); Hybrid TV (A7Gc)
- 40.5x31.4x3.8cm, 4.0Kg

I did a quick Google search on the ASUS A7G and didn't really find anything, which leads me to believe that these are some of the first images of the production notebook. This notebook is currently unreleased, but it will be launched in Jan. 2006. If you have been holding off on building a notebook here is a sneak peak at one of the upcoming thin and light notebooks from ASUS.

Overall I was very happy with the build and construction on the ASUS A7G Notebook. The A7G features a 17" screen with a Color Shine LCD, which is far different from the screen on my ASUS Z71V notebook with it's matte screen. The built in 1.3MP camera and the ability to get Analog TV (A7Gb) or Hybrid TV (A7Gc) in a notebook is a nice touch, but who really needs a remote and Hybrid TV on their notebook? Looks like the notebook companies are making these notebooks jam packed with more features than ever before.

Enjoy the images and specifications!

Wow, I was wondering when Asus would come out with a new chassis. Looks mouth watering great.

It's actually located right in front, so when you open the laptop you are looking right at it. Think of it as a 1.3MP webcam! It's really crisp and the video footage from it is awesome.

It seems to me that ASUS has re-evaluated their ENTIRE product line. Their site is different than it was yesterday and all the model numbers have changed!

Ahhhhh! I was just getting ready to order my parts! Now I have to research all over again. :'(

After just a quick glance at their new product line, I'm liking the A6VM at Asus.com

However, the price on the pre-order list is $1350.00! I'm hoping that's for a pre-built machine and not the chassis. No longer can I find which are just chassis and which are full systems. Guess I'll have to wait.

at first glance, from what I can tell, if you're looking at the notebooks on their website, the ones with prices are pre-built, the others are chasses I do believe. Yeah, they did make a few changes, but the Z71V and Z63A retained their model numbers.

Hmmm, the site has gone back to what it was before the change now. They do have some of the new model numbers but the site layout is back to it's original form. That I am glad for.

Sorry, must've been a test site gone live either by accident or just a short time. I'm glad it's back!

Did anyone else see this change besides my friend and I?
