Summary: I bought this machine 4 years ago and still use it today. It's very sturdy, and you won't exactly be mobile with it. The mouse pad is the only thing that ever was a cause of concern. It's slightly erratic, and hurts to use after 20 minutes.
Summary: A Good laptop for the price I paid 650$, it's not really made for very intense and powerful games but runs simple games such as minecraft and tf2 exceptionally. When I tried to play a very high end game such as one with good graphics like modern combat or battlefield or even payday, it would...
Summary: I have two of these - they are powerful gaming laptops and held up very well over the past 3+ years. I've only needed to clean the vents a couple of times, otherwise no maintenance and they still run cool even after several hours of conitnuous use. Very well made.
Summary: 3 Asus laptops so far... I was looking to buy a gaming laptop that was powerful and not that pricey. I came across this one, G73JH RBBX05, on the internet and got it for a relatively good price. I haven't had that many problems with it so far.
Summary: Great Laptop been using it for about 4 years now, but I feel like its needs a lot of maintenance, I've had to repaste the processor and video card 2 times now and maybe even a 3rd time in the near future. I need to being using this computer in a cool room if I want to be playing games.
Summary: I bought the ASUS G73JH from a local Big Box store back in 2010 - 2011. I'm not 100% on which tax return it was. Anyway it was my first gaming laptop purchase. I had set up an Alienware for $2300.00 through Dell, but found the ASUS while shopping. It had a much better price tag at 1250.00.
Summary: I've had this computer for almost three years. It has worked very well in those three years. I know that the machine is very outdated now, but if anyone is looking for a used one to save some money, I'd still recommend it.
Summary: Go to Asus Gamers Lounge website > Forum, then search Asus G73JH. Search for video bios fix. First , update your System BIOS to latest. Second, update your video BIOS. You should have no more issue to play any games now.
Pros: AMD Radeon 5870. It is still one of the old card that capable to play BlackOps 2 add Medium setting, BF3, SC2 and all without any issues. **BUT** you need to upgrade two BIOS first to solve the Graphic card issue.
