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: 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.

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.
Summary: I just recently bought the G73W-XA1 and all I can say, is this piece of technology is awesome. It will blow you away, the graphics will blow you away. From watching hd Youtube videos to playing your favorite pc game, to watching movies, to listening to music, it'll handle anything.
Summary: Summary : Great price for a very capable lappy. I have been using this machine for 1 month now. I wanted to put it thru its paces before writing a review. This is my 7th laptop and I am quite satisfied with it serving its primary purpose - Gaming with a large Hi def monitor.
Summary: I have been studying up on this laptop ever since the model with the ATI GPU hit the market. This model hasn't had any of the issues that the previous model had(no BSOD/GSOD problems at all with the nVidia, that I'm aware of).
Summary: I will admit that I was a long-time avid console gamer, formerly quick to shun PC gaming because the hardware and hardware requirements were constantly being updated. Before purchasing the G73JW-XA1 I had been using a cheap Dell Inspiron 1501 purchased in 2006 that served me very well for everyday...
Summary: This computer is by far the best purchase I could have made in a laptop (notebook) that has the capability of running any game that is out there. I am glad that I found this because I always wanted a laptop, but, I never found one that was as powerful as my desktop.
