ASUS Laptop G Series G73JW-XN1 Intel Core i7 1st Gen 740QM (1.73 GHz) 8 GB Memory 500 GB HDD NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M 17.3

Pros: Very fast and reliable. Very good cooling. > NUMBERPAD <

The power supply seconds as a deadly weapon with at least five feet of reach should you need to protect yourself.

Cons: Bloatware, Bloatware, and Bloatware.

Other Thoughts: This is a great laptop. I can't really consider the battery life, weight, and size belonging in the list of cons since the computer is what it is, and it eats babies. Just make sure you are buying a large enough laptop bag before you buy one.

I hate bloatware, I really, really hate bloatware. There is bloatware. If you hate bloatware as much as I do, you will be compelled to do a clean install before you do anything else with the machine. It seems all laptop manufactures do this, but I'm killing an egg for it anyway on an otherwise awesome laptop. Because I hate it so much.

Pros: Very fast.

Cons: None apparent.

Other Thoughts: Put this set in a ASUS Rampage Extreme (The original) with a quad core processor. I have been very impressed with how stable the system has been.

I set them for the default setting as after my last batch of upgrades, as I have had no need to OC whatsoever.

Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 Yorkfield Quad-Core 2.83 GHz LGA 775 95W BX80569Q9550 Desktop Processor

Pros: Works as Intended.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a dual core so most of the difference I've noticed is naturally from software that is written to take advantage of Quads.

Photoshop on a SSD is crazy fast with this and 16GBs of fast RAM on win7. Encoding speeds for video are very fast.
