Warning: buy this and you might not see your son again
3 February 2012
Summary: I say you might not see your son again because this not-so-little "notebook" is clearly made with video games in mind. Too big to be a "laptop," don't fall for the "I can use it for school" line. Hah!
Summary: I had this laptop for about 8 months and thoroughly enjoyed how powerful it was. No game I threw at it was an issue. I'd just like to caution buyers on a few points: The ATI drivers for this model are not well-supported. You WILL run into driver problems.
Summary: when i first got this thing out of the box the touch pad was broken could not use it but i didnt care so i just went on useing it eveything was fine then about six months later all my games started to lag something ferce and i didnt know what it was so i just took it in to best buy and they told me...
Summary: Ok, the laptop is wonderful, I actually got it for like around $900 after taxes at bestbuy (refurbished). If everything on the laptop was in good shape, the only thing I could possibly complain about is the mouse pad, it drives me nuts, it skips and you need to press down very hard to click.
Summary: Although the other reviewers have mentioned the keyboard issue, I do not think any of them have done justice to how bad the keyboard is on this computer. The touch pad area is so static sensitive that I am constantly having to Ctrl-Z in order to reverse edit all kinds of bizarre stuff that happens...

Summary: After one month of use the 17 inch screen went out - vertical stripes on one half and psychedelic images on the other half. Computer was returned at no charge to ASUS repair facility 3 hours from my location in Northern CA. Computer was returned by FedEx in 10 working (14 calendar) days.
Summary: I have never been more frustrated with a computer purchase. I received the machine and instantly fell in love. However, it took only 24 hours before I started seeing graphical distortion. I decided to perform a BIOS update as per ASUS' instructions.
Summary: I had the G73JH-A1 for almost two weeks before it shutdown while playing a game. A web search for G73JH and shutdown showed it could be overheating problems. I installed desktop gadgets that monitored the CPU and GPU and tested by playing various games.
Hatte mir mehr erwartet, vor allem nach den tollen Testergebnissen

Summary: Ich besitze nun dieses Notebook seit ca. 3 Monaten. Ich habe es auch hier bei Amazon bestellt. Bevor ich mir dieses Notebook gekauft habe (da mein altes Dell Inspiron 9400 leider einen Grafikkartenfehler aufgrund von Überhitzung hatte), wurden von mir so ziemlich alle verfügbaren Tests gelesen und...
