Summary: This laptop is a beast in terms of performance. It runs most games I've thrown at it at full settings without an issue, and makes an excellent development machine... with three caveats. The keyboard is backlit, which is very nice for typing at night, but it seems to be less responsive than a good keyboard should be.
Satisfied with my Asus, but it still has a couple issues

Summary: I've been using the Asus g74sx for a couple of weeks now, and I think it can be properly assessed. I'll quickly go over the main pros and cons of the machine: Pros: -Awesome specs - i7-2630QM CPU; 12GB memory; two 750 gb HDD; and of course the Geforce GTX 560m (3gb) -These specs run any game or program I've thrown at it (for example, I bought Skyrim for it right when it came; runs beautifully without any crashes, freezes, etc.
Summary: Just purchased this laptop 3 days ago and have some initial impressions. For the record, I have never come across the ideal Windows based laptop for everything without completely breaking the bank. However, this laptop comes pretty close. I have put it through some initial paces to see how it performs. As a gaming machine, it works at high frame rates at full 1080p with older games from the last few years.
Summary: ***2 year update*** This machine has easily been one of the best purchases I've ever made. Its traveled countless miles with me while being used between 4 to 6 hours daily week days and 8 to 10 hours on weekends. Not a single issue has shown its face, and in fact the one major flaw which was with the key strokes seems to have been fixed either by firmware, BIOS update or keystroke use. It still handles current titles pretty well on medium and high settings.
Summary: Three weeks after purchase, I am still enjoying this laptop. It arrived on schedule and was sufficiently boxed. The ASUS box was packed inside an Amazon box with only a small amount of paper to prevent movement, but the ASUS box was well-packed and included the backpack (which helped cushion the 2nd ASUS interior box containing the laptop). The interior ASUS box had cardboard inserts that tightly cushioned the laptop and prevented any movement.
Only 1 major deficiency, otherwise I'd give it 5 stars.

Summary: Excellent screen, and fast computer. No regrets except ASUS really needs to get a different supplier or software driver for the touchpad. Fortunately it comes enclosed with a free gaming mouse.

Summary: Un petit bémol sur la mise en route... beaucoup de mises à jour, flash du bios et encore des soucis de carte graphique avec SolidWorks... qui devrait se régler (j'espère car la dernière mise à jour ne règle rien!!!). La notice est strictement minimum et les nombreux (...presque trop) logiciels pré-installés n'ont pas obligatoirement une utilité, il faut lancer l'installation pour savoir ce qu'ils font... c'est dommage.
Summary: Petit avis au sujet du G74sx que j'ai eu le plaisir d'avoir pendant très peu de temps, c'est à dire 1 mois.Je l'avais acheté à 1400€. Je l'ai revendu très vite à cause de sa taille. Je me déplace souvent et j'ai eu du mal à assumer ses dimensions. Je m'étais acheté ensuite son petit frère le G53sx. Caractéristiques techniques : Processeur Intel Core i7-2670QM (2.
Pros: Performances, Prix, Refroidissement efficace et silencieux
