The G51 is part of the Republic of Gamers lineup from ASUS, meaning it incorporates the ROG logo on the front cover and a more aggressive notebook design. The outside cover has chrome trim around the side and bottom edges, and a futuristic pattern painted onto the lid; both helping to push the overall gaming theme. The sides are black plastic, with a silver strip painted on the sides and front of the notebook. You can tell these strips were painted separately, since you can see some faint overspray near the border edges. The inside of the G51 has a more back-to-basics look with a rubberized black palmrest, black backlit keyboard, and glossy black trim around the display. I personally think the design could have been helped by using the rubberized on more surfaces around the notebook, but that might be the ThinkPad fan inside of me talking.
Build quality is above average, with sturdy plastic used throughout the notebook, but there are some areas that could see some improvement. The screen cover feels very durable, and protects the screen against any distortion from impacts to the back cover or flexing the screen side to side. The palmrest and keyboard have absolutely no flex at all, which is something you need if you are going to be playing high-stress games and occasionally taking out some of your anger on your computer. The two areas that I think ASUS could have improved are the painted silver trim pieces, which shows some overspray, and the keyboard itself. It looks like this notebook was designed with a different keyboard in mind for it, since the Chiclet-style model included is sized just slightly small for the bezel around it. It is loose enough that with some careful prying, you can pop the keyboard out of its tray. This is a small gap of about 2-3mm, but it is just enough to let the keyboard slip past the notches that secure it in place.
Users looking to upgrade components inside the notebook will find it very easy, thanks to a single panel giving you access to all user-replaceable components. The only “warranty void if removed” sticker is covering one of the screws used to tension the processor heatsink, meaning that if you want to change out the processor or graphics card you will be forfeiting your 2-year warranty. Given the configuration of this notebook, I only see users really looking to swap out the RAM for larger modules or the hard drives for SSDs.
