Hi I recently bought the G30-117.
I dont use outlook express on it and have not had any of the memory errors.
When i tried to unzip to largish file it crashed on me, similiar to yours i think, and so I installed WinRAR and it unzips them...
Ive got a toshiba g30 with a geforce 7600 and I rarely notice any fan noise coming from the laptop when browsing or using office. Even during intensive games, the fan noise increases but it is still pretty quiet compared to my desktop...
Thanks alot for the review!!
Yeah thought the English version hard drive is 4200rpm, but you can upgrade it at www.asuslaptop.co.uk to 5400rpm for 109+VAT, or stick in a 60gb 7200rpm for 99+VAT. Tempting!
Anyword on the RAM speed?
