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: 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.
Finally a long lasting laptop, that can play games!

Summary: What's not to love? I've had this for a few years now. All I've replaced/upgraded was the main HDD. I upgraded it to an SSD. It's still as relevant as the day I bought it (no severely outdated hardware). Will be at least a few more years until I look to upgrade.
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.
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.
