THEE KILLEREST MACHINE EV. ER!!
from LA, CA
About Me Quality Oriented
Comments about Asus G73JH Black 17.3" Notebook Computer:
MAKE YOUR BACKUP DISCS FIRST! LET ME SAY THAT AGAIN! -- MAKE THE DANG DISCS DUMMY!I however DID NOT and almost paid dearly for it. I installed AVG Anti-Virus before uninstalling that kludgy anti-virus bloatware that came with the thing. Caused MAJOR conflicts that could have been avoided had I made the discs to restore it. Instead I had to take it to a PRO friend of mine (Toddles Parkhill - whom I henceforth will always refer to as GOD) who helped save it and then makes discs. Other than that [...] move.... I have to say it by far one of the MOST MIND BOGGLING machines ever. I'm stunned at how fast it is. I am an Art Director doing tons of heavy crunch graphics. This machine sits backs a yawns looking at me as if to say: "Bring it on Bro... Sheesh.. is THAT all you got? NO SWEAT".... OUT OF 5 STARS -- I GIVE IT 6. I'm considering asking for it's hand in Marriage. Stay tuned...
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Los Angeles, CA
Its an awesome piece of machinery I've ever experienced. Product was as per specs.I got the memory swapped from 8gb(4*2gb) to the 16gb(4*4gb) in BestBuy so that I dont lose warranty and it worked like a charm.Im running three virtual machines running on win 2008 r2 and they work crazy fast.WEI showed 5.9 largely due to slower storage.*Beware* Plenty of storage means shady performance. Im going to buy a SSD when budget permits and top it up to 7.1 or higherNote: This machine is not for Averaje joe who wants to do some web browsing and watching TV. Use its power for something that demands it. If you open the laptop yourself for upgrade, you LOSE warranty.
Service and delivery comments:
Arrived in Shape enclosed in a large ABT box with proper cushioning
from San Diego, CA
[...] Everything went smooth. The laptop is awesome! Only thing I didn't like it is the partitions it was setup, but I redid the partitions, cleaned out all the advertised software, and redid my own image (ghost). Tonight I will update the video driver to omega cataylst to test some games to see the performance. Should be good crossing my fingers. Overall, a very good experience.

I use this for high end gaming, and it gets the job done! However, the screen is not as bright as I would have hoped, but still no big deal. You can still plainly see the screen. It comes with ASUS's 360 warranty, [...] Overall this is a very great laptop, however due to the vents in the back, I would recommend using the laptop backpack that comes with it to carry, as finding a case to fit might be a little tricky. It also comes with a gaming mouse. *ASUS no longer includes recovery DVD's or at least mine did not, so be prepared to have 6 blank DVD's on hand. It says 5, but it took 6. Something I was not made aware of until after I started the process, which lead to a midnight run to a local "store." It would not allow me to use Dual Layer DVD's
Delivery was on time, however the laptop was on special order, and apparently getting this laptop in from ASUS is like pulling teeth because it is so popular. The product arrived in excellent condition via UPS, and Abt customer service was always top notch! When I had a technical "error" Abt was even better at helping me than the manufacture.

Deal or no Deal?
By Tech Enthusiast
from Houston, TX
Handles just about everything I have thrown at it, every so often its a tiny bit slow to respond. Keep in mind this is a large notebook, more suitable for desktop grade replacement, as such its weight is a good 8-9 lbs not including the charging cord. The other downside is no esata port, that said it's not a huge deal to lack it, the 4 usb 2.0 ports should get you through anything you need to albeit perhaps a bit slower. Additionally it comes with software to play Blu Rays however windows media player is unable to play them so you have to use the included software, over all it works well with the full HD screen. I'd definitely recommend this to anyone who's looking for a quality performance laptop at a good price and without the cons of going with "dell". 4.5/5 stars, not perfect but pretty good especially with the price and quality of asus backing it.
One of the best gaming laptops I've had!
from West Hills, CA
This laptop has one of the best appearances with its all-black feel, blue LEDs, and dual-exhaust for heat to dissipate (from its Radeon HD 5870 graphics card).This laptop is super-fast, and can handle any application and 3D game I run.I'm all about quality products, and this product is QUALITY. It has a magnificent 17" LCD screen with 1920x1080 native resolution.The only cons I have about this laptop are:-Low battery life (but that's to be expected with the high-end graphics card that it carries).-Poorly designed trackpad (which is why I only use a mouse).-Squished numeric keypad (it can be rather frustrating trying to type the "0" on the numeric keypad).Other than that, I don't mind its size or weight, since wanted a desktop replacement laptop.Lastly, you can get rid of some of the ASUS SW that comes with this laptop, such as the ASUS Data Protection Management program (which is useless).

over all it's a real killer pc. Found the mouse pad aliitle funky to get use to (coming from Ibm/lenovo laptops)and the lack of a card port wasdisapointing but a $10.00 adaptor fixed that for high end video capture / editing.
from Idaho Falls, ID
Excellent laptop, a little heavier than others but well worth it for the performance.
Delivery was fast and the laptop was packaged very good. The customer service person I talked with was very friendly and knowledgeable. I would not hesitate ordering from ABT in the future.
