Specs listed in Amazon selling web page (http://www.amazon.com/gp/pr) does not fully match with those contained in the computer.

Summary: The computer i did receive is indeed the Asus G74SX-1A (not A1 by the way) but, if you review the detailed list of specs at the bottom of the selling web page, it does not match with some important devices onboard the machine i received, for instance: 1. Your web page says, "RAM 12 GB DDR3", and the machine has only 8 GB. 2. Your web page says, "Hard Drive 1500 GB SATA", and the machine has, 1000 GB in two 500 GB hard drives 3.
Summary: Graphically it has taken everything i've thrown at it up until recently. The biggest gripe is the awful firmware update system. It simply doesn't work. There are other minor ergo gripes. Power plug on the right hand side , not a big thing but its annoying when you're right handed and using an external mouse. Most thought out laptops will put the cable in the back or left hand side. Numeric 10 key pad. Awesome idea right?!
if you brand this laptop as a gamer laptop, than use a better graphic card

Summary: Overall it's a solid machine, I love the overall stealthy cool looking and design, especially the keyboard, looks and feel really sleekly, way better than the alieanware cheap keyboard, which is so hard to clean and not damage it while cleaning. But g74 has it's vital short coming, I still has to admit that alieanware laptop holds one of the best specifications in the industry. while g74 uses the geforce 560m 3GB, which is not the best available.
