Summary: This is for it time a great laptop without having to pay the price of a name, Dell, Hewlet Packard, Toshiba do not stand a chance. Yes Asus makes even better units that compare with the Alienware but again that also a Dell owned company and have drifted away from the quality units that they once...
Summary: The computer I received was NOT the one in the posting, the one I received had stickers on it and was filthy. I would not boot and when I plugged it in it started to burn, the left mouse button is broken and there is a crack in the mother board. Needless to say it was not a good buy.
Otherwise it has been a great laptop. It is pretty heavy though

Summary: After about 3 years of use, I am now getting the blue screen of death from a driver power state failure. Otherwise it has been a great laptop. It is pretty heavy though, so if you are planning on taking it in a backpack anywhere, it gets a little annoying. For gaming, it has been pretty awesome.
Summary: I have an ASUS motherboard in my desktop, great hardware. The laptop is big and heavy, but it does as much as my desktop setup. The only gripe is the DVD/Bluray unit, I move between U.S., New Zealand and China. The unit can not be made to region 0 or multi-region.
Summary: I had to finance this great laptop as it was a little overpriced, but one of the few 3D laptops on the market. Most games not produced for 3D will play in 3D! Sweet! Battery life is for the birds, maybe 1 hour as the unit is already 2 years old.
Summary: The computer I owned didn't have the specs to handle my Video Editing Software so I looked around for a beefy Gaming Computer that would. The G74SX-BBK11 renders video in record time. In addition it will handle anything else you throw at it with outstanding speed.
