Another high-end gaming laptop from Asus, with budget less than $1,500! Seriously, what laptop can you expect with budget below $1,500? G51Jx gives you Core i7 720QM, 6GB DDR3 memory, 500GB hard drive and 1GB GTX 360M. Are they worth for $1,500? Of course! However, this laptop is only $100 cheaper than G73JH, still there are so many downgrades. Yet G51Jx wins two cases : size and weight. It is an 15-inch high-end gaming laptop, and 7.26 lbs is average for this size.
G51Jx also has great gaming performance. It can run Age of Conan, Race Driver Grid, Call of Duty 4, Mass Effect, Gothic 3 and other latest games fluently at high setting. Crysis still should run well at medium, though.
Core i7-720QM featured with Turbo Boost, Hyper-Threading, VT-x, VT-d, and Enhanced Speedstep  Technologies provides speedy gaming performance and multi-tasking capabilities, along with incredible security technologies by Execute Disable Bit  and TXT.
GTS 360M  actually has the same chip as GTS 260M. The only difference is that GTS 360M has higher clcok rate, and has high performance with GDDR5. It's advanced OpenCL, Powermizer and CUDA to speed up most demanding tasks, greatly improves performance. Also PhysX to bring more realistic gaming effects.
For the memory, again here it comes the unusual 6GB.  And again, it's too big if you were only to play games. Big memory is only suitable for running professional multiple 3D programs, like Photoshop, Premiere, scaning computer and other at the same time. Read here for more information.
For the hard drive, SATA II 500GB with 7,200rpm is standard for current high-end gaming laptops. External hard drive is not necessary at all. No need to be upgraded. It's just no less, no more.
Asus  G51Jx is also featured with Altec Lansing speakers and EAX Advanced HD 4.0 to enable you to hear every accoustic that is intended to be heard. Simply it brings more realistic sound effect.
I just interviewed G51Jx and asked her if she had any bad behaviour. And yes, she does have some...
Oh, G51Jx is so sexy... She's HOT! It gets hot quickly! Prepare external cooler! Waste your money! Sell your car! Aww man, being a sexy laptop will never be good.
You know, if someone is cursed, he will get chased by the reaper, the puller of life, or the angel of death. The same goes for G51Jx. She's cursed because of her sexiness and now is being chased by the reaper of laptop... BSoD, a.k.a black screen of death! There are issues that BSoD comes only a couple of days to a month after you purchased it and/or when you play games for a moment. Perhaps if you own this laptop you'll  (no persuasion) get cursed, too?
Some keyboard problems.
Short battery life. While playing DVD, G51Jx can only last for 1 hour and 30 minutes, less than 2 hours, below average for an 15-inch laptop.
Well, those are common cons of G51Jx, taken from many sources. If you own this laptop and have any additional pros and/or cons, please write in comment.

@pricego - yes, but overall it's only 100 bucks cheaper than the legendary G73JH, which has lager hard disk, memory and graphics card. But yes, it doesn't have blu-ray, which is the only downside against this G51JX. Well, is it worth for 10 bucks? Maybe...
