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.
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.
Summary: I bought this computer after doing extensive research on some comparable machines for the price. Honestly, i couldn't find one. It has all the power of a high grade desktop in a laptop. The design of the laptop is very well done with the way the heat flows out of the back.
Perfect machine, except for the crappy touchpad driver

Summary: I actually purchased this machine as a development box, not as a gaming box, mainly because I wanted a SILENT and powerful machine. The machine is a bit heavy, but for people my size, (6'3", 230lbs), 9lbs more or less does not really matter.
Excerpt: Configuration of my laptop Processor: 2GHz Intel Core i7-2630QM Memory: 8GB, 1,333MHz DDR3 Hard drive: 160GB SSD and a 1.5 TB 7200rpm HDD Graphics: Nvidia GTX 560M Screen size: 17.3 inches Performance This laptop is really one of the best gaming laptop for the price.
Pros: Super fast, great video quality, huge storage capacity, good display, loud speakers
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.
