5 out of 5 eggs 1st ASUS, no regrets. Should have looked at them in previous years 06/14/2010

This review is from: ASUS G Series G73JH-X1 NoteBook Intel Core i7 720QM (1.60GHz) 8GB Memory 500GB HDD ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 17.3" Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

Pros:

Runs cool
Back-lit keyboard
Full 1080
Excellent performance
Excellent display
Very quiet
Better than average warranty
"Futuremark" test scores were amazing
8GB memory - plan to VMWare (or equivalent)
Quality construction
Multimedia (movie) playback looks great
Better than average speakers for a laptop.
Price point was right on the mark based on what came with the box.

Cons:

Nitpicks only. As stated in other reviews

Bloatware (removed)
Creating the backup disks took a couple of hours
Partitioned drive (removed). This one made me scratch my head as to why. Easy enough to fix under Win7.
Big power brick

Other Thoughts:

This unit is a complete desktop replacement for me (no more desktops), so getting the most bang for the buck was important. 1920x1080 gives loads of screen room when working remotely from home. The power of the box insures I will get a number of years out of it. While I also play games, this is a multipurpose unit for me and it does not disappoint.


IMO, this is easily 5/5
