Summary: I've had this laptop for nearly 2 years now and it's been fantastic. It's only ever had one issue, which occurred recently, with the DCIN port where the AC adapter goes. I'm still under warranty and the customer service at ASUS is being very helpful with the issue. This laptop itself is built like a beast, and has lasted 3 times as long as the other laptops my family has owned.
NOT A BUYER, just curious with questions about the product

Summary: Really interested in your Asus G74SX BBK7. Looks like a great price, almost too great. From my research, and knowledge of PCs this is a great buy. Could you tell me more about it? How old, how long have you had it, and did you do work on it (new processer, video card etc) Thanks.
Summary: in overall it is good gaming laptop. Pros: Perfect screen, with no glare. 3D, but I used it couple times. Blu-Ray. Good cooling system. Cons: after one year of usage my processor working on 800 Mhz only. Fixed it only with third-party program. No "Num Lock" button!!! key board working not smooth. problem with Flushing BIOS. But international warranty helped. Anyway I love it! After 18 months my lovely laptop is died... I took it to service and they found died main board.
Summary: I bought this to prototype code in Matlab, C, C++, and CUDA. It has proven to be a workhorse. ASUS makes great products that are well priced. The only thing one might consider as a drawback of this laptop (or similar models) is the size. To be as powerful as it is, it is a monster. It comes with a backpack, really just because it is nearly impossible to find one from other sources that can actually hold it.
Summary: Fast computer, touchpad gets twitchy once in a while if you use it more than an hour at a time. The screen is great, the lighted keyboard is very useful for working, and its nice and pretty to look at as well. Obviously the matte finish is going to get prints on it, I have never been disappointed by an asus computer before, my previous one made it 6 years no problems before someone stole it.
Summary: I love this computer. It's as simple as that. It looks good as well as performing above and beyond in the gaming realm. While playing your favorite game in Ultra graphics mode, it will play your favorite songs on iTunes without missing a beat. All the while it manages to stay cool with it's two cooling fans and oversized intake/exhaust ports that are very functional and aesthetically pleasing. The 3D modes look great and the GPU doesn't miss a beat all the while.
Summary: My Custom built desktop has a ASUS motherboard using an ASUS 23" monitor. Both have performed flawlessly. Their products are built to meet quality standards and not built to meet a low price. Well worth the bucks, and that is why I waited to find just the right one on Ebay. I have a Toshiba 18.4" screen, just a shrunken desktop which has also done well.
Summary: I purchased my ASUS G74Sx DH72 in December of 2011 and it was a new model. It was heavier than I expected, but it was my first premium laptop purchase and it was going to be a desktop replacement. It was fast, powerful and quiet. Approximately August of 2012 the keyboard began to fail. It started with particular keys like ENTER and some of the NUMBER KEYS. I was already annoyed at the lack of dedicated NUM LOCK KEY.
