If your thinking about buying one, stop thinking and buy it.

Summary: Everything and more that wat I expected in laptop, while not being a new Ultrabook or super thin, this machine feels like it could control the Deathstar. Powerful processor fully capable of running high end 3D Auto Cad program. Great feeling keyboard. All around excellent computer.
Summary: I purchased this laptop in October 2010. I was looking for a portable computer suitable for mobile software development, some scientific computing, and the occasional game. It appeared as though this machine was a perfect fit with a perfect price. It has been great for me as a graduate student.
Summary: Amazing laptop. It is also HUGE. I can't look at a normal laptop anymore without thinking its a netbook. This laptop came with everything in the listing. (Bought new that is.) Everything meets what it says. The graphics are amazing, and the speed is amazing.
Summary: I have only had this machine a few months - out of the box it was great for a month - NOW the touch pad is thinking for itself. The keys skip and stick. And when I run a graphics intensive game it sounds like a jet engine revving on the right side!!! It's soundless if not gaming.
Summary: Pros: * Fast laptop, excellent specs * Nice styling * Thoughtful design and layout (example, USB ports on both the right and left sides of the laptop, no ports on the back) * Excellent cooling, even on longish gaming sessions it does not get hot. Warm, but not hot, can comfortably be held on lap.
Summary: edit 11/27/2011: I needed to point out that Asus support did honor the warranty, and my laptop was back in about a week, all fixed. After months of daily use, I have not noticed any ill effects of my dropping, so they truly fixed it.
Summary: Overall a very solid laptop computer. While running it stays quite cool, and the overall shape of the computer is very well designed. The only two complaints I have is that... 1. I still can't run the newer games on the highest graphics. 2.
Summary: I am very happy with this laptop. It was a good price and I use it in ways most buyers wont. I installed Windows 7 Pro x64, MS Office, Avid Media Composer 5, Pro Tools, Adobe CS5, Edius 5, Camtasia, DVD Architect, and Xilisoft Video Converter Ultimate.
Summary: Calm, cool, collected--that is the simplest way to describe the ASUS G73JW-XA1. This beast of a laptop is the fastest computer I have ever had the pleasure to lay my hands on. It tears through Crysis at a lovely 30 FPS, in full high-definition at very high settings, and makes the game itself beg for...
Summary: I've owned a lot of laptops, but typically use at a desk with full-size monitor and keyboard. Last year I switched over to an HP netbook for my personal machine, and was really frustrated with the speed and display size.
