asus g51vx-rx05 any good?

hi found this laptop on ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ASUS-G51VX-RX0...item4cecfe7e52

and was wondering if it is any good? it cost about £590 including shipping to Peru(where i am atm) or UK.

btw i know that it is refurbished...

and would the Intel core 2 duo P7350 2ghz processor bottleneck the gtx260m?

the gtx260m is nothing like the desktop 260, so the 2ghz CPU shouldn't bottleneck it.

As for the laptop, i'm not too sure, it looks pretty good, but I've never really seen/read anything about them.

I have a friend that uses an asus gaming laptop just like that, I think the specs are slightly different but its the same chassis. Its construction is pretty beefy and its really flashy looking with its LEDs and lights ect. Note this is not something that is good for portable use, it will make a decent desktop replacement, but from my experience the battery life is lacking. Oh before I forget, this bad boy gets HOT so protect your junk with a pillow or something before placing it in your lap.
