This post has nothing to do with Korea, and is about the ASUS G series G50, G51J, G73, G60, and all of the variants.
I bought a G51J from Newegg in 2009. The relevant specs are as follows:
Intel Core i7 720QM (Clarksfield) 1.60Hz socket 989 rPGA
Nvidia GeforceGTX 260M
Full specs here.
For $1,500 It's a fair price for a lot of muscle in this 15.6 inch behemoth. However, when you have a bunch of powerful components in a plastic case packed tighter than slaves chained inside the Amistad, some of them are bound to overheat and die without proper temperature control, also much like slaves chained inside the Amistad.This is the bottom of the chassis. See those slits spaced out all over the place? They are there to let the fan draw cool air in so the laptop doesn't overheat and die. Unless you're surfing the dark recesses of the internet looking for either drugs or child porn, chances are your computer is not going to die from a virus. It'll probably die from overheating due to dust accumulation blocking airflow.
Now if I were to ask you, a regular layman, to chance a guess as to what the function of that big black circle and metal ring is, what might you say? If you look close, it is right beside the fan exhaust. And since a fan is also circular, you might also guess that the fan is probably right above the circle.
After having deduced these clues, would you say that this mysterious black sphincter is
A. The protective grating of the main intake for the fan directly above it
B. Made of a different material than the rest of the chassis, perhaps for heat conductivity functions.
Or C. A red herring with absolutely no functional purpose?
The answer is of course, C. The black sphincter is even textured like a grating, however it is fully impermeable and serves no different function than the rest of the plastic case. In fact, to add insult to injury, on the inside of the sphincter is a layer of aluminum foil just to block the intake even if it were real and not completely imaginary. Upon closer inspection, more insult ensues- the ring isn't even metal. It's just plastic, coated or made to look like metal.
Let's go over this again:
1. Dark Color
4. Held together by O-ring
How could you not see that the explanation for this circle's existence is that the ASUS design team got high and decided to manufacture a laptop with a second asshole?
You might think the designers put that there just to trick people into thinking it is an actual vent. Why else would they go out of their way to make it look any different, right? But in that case, WHY NOT JUST MAKE IT AN ACTUAL VENT? It wouldn't cost anything extra. Instead, they have this circle that says, “Hey, this would be the perfect place to put something useful!”
Because of this constipated sphincter of doom, the fan is forced to draw air from the slits at the bottom which are placed far from the fan, and from the keyboard above. The problem with this is twofold:
Number one, the bottom slits are far from the fan.
Number two, if you're the type of person that buys a laptop from a line called Republic of Gamers, in about six months the space between your keys will be fully congealed by dead skin, pubic hair, and enough nerd-sweat, saliva, Mountain Dew, nacho cheese and semen to make eight batches of Powerpuff Girls.
The result of all these brilliant design choices is a notebook that idles at 60C and peaks above 100C at which point the CPU throttles itself to protect itself from heat damage. So all that power is pretty much useless.
Why is this important? Because aside from my crazy bitch ex-girlfriend 'tripping' over your computer and then having a breakdown because she hasn't had her second helping of weed and mood stabilizers before noon, high temperatures are the strongest factor in how long your computer can survive before it collapses from the abysmal working conditions you subject it to, much like a slave in Virginia circa 1785.
Fuck you, Kat.
In Part Two, the reckoning continues I will attempt to make sense of this fuckity nonsense first on my own, and then with the help of Korea.
