Asus G73Jw-A1 Review

3 December 2010
  • Excerpt: A 17-inch notebook is going to be big, there’s just no way around it. But after reviewing Malibal’s ginormous X7200 desktop replacement in our Holiday issue, Asus’s eight-pound, 11.8-ounce G73Jw-A1 seems highly portable by comparison. And at $1,800—one-third the price of the X7200 —the G73Jw-A1 also seems highly affordable. You get a lot of notebook for that price.
  • Pros: Quad-core i7; DX11 graphics; decent sound system; HD screen.
  • Cons: You'll need to dial down detail to play newer games.

  • Excerpt: When it comes to gaming notebooks, there are two main things that can coax a gamer to upgrade to a new machine even if their current notebook is still doing well. Those things include a new GPU and a new CPU. Today I have the latest gaming rig from ASUS on my bench and it is called the G73JW-A1.

ASUS G73Jw-A1 Review

  • Summary: If you're looking for the ultimate gaming system, ASUS's G73Jw-A1 should definitely be near the top of your list, because of its strong performance scores. However, the stiff keyboard holds it back. If you're looking for a gaming system that has a slightly weaker graphics card, but a much better keyboard, touchpad, screen, and speakers, check out the 18-inch Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q890.
