this is actually my second, but the first came DOA

this thing is the sturdiest feeling laptop I have ever had. when you first look at it you think that the key board will be cramped, because they put a full number pad on it, but it is still quite comfy to type on. backlit key board is awesome to say the least, and the rubber wrist rest is epic aswell.

Really like the design of that laptop, especially for cooling.

Hoping to get a decent trinity-cored laptop this summer.

I've had my g71gx since '09. Looks and works great after these 2 yrs, I'll probably upgrade next year to whatever the latest laptop is. Asus is definitely a solid company.

not really sure, if I get BF it'll be for 360(where all my friends are)

the cooling is awesome. this thing has been in my lap for 4 hours and it is only slightly warm. venting the air out the back makes a huge difference

there were only 4 reviews when I made the purchase, 2 good and 2 bad, so I decided to take my chances. 1 of the reviews on there about the screen is me, because my screen was DOA on the 1st 1. I would've just upgraded to the 17.4" after that, but newegg only does swaps for the same computer if they have it in stock

I guess I'll have to wait for BF3 to come out to get a better idea of how some of the gaming laptops will run it. I'm hoping for the price they will do better than medium settings. I would just upgrade my old desktop, but for the money I would spend I could get a great laptop, which I definitely need more than a desktop.

With a 2 ghz processor and 460M card, it probably won't run BF3 on higher than low to medium... not hating, just saying.

Oh, hello there:

BF3 at ultra on a G53SW @720P 28-37fps
Sure, the gpu is overclocked, but it's still quite playable at ultra settings.

It's ALL cosmetics, trust me. I have the G73JH-A1...having to send it in for overheating issues for the second time within less than a year. I have to use a chill mat while surfing the net. Waiting until my desktop is finished to send it in for repairs so that way I'll have a PC for homework and porn.

Only time it'd get hot is when the fans are blocked but because of where they are that never happens.

I am never at home when I play games, always at some friends house, so right now a PC isn't a viable option. Once I get to my first station in the air force I plan on building a good rig
