That is a beast of a laptop. Buy.com charges me tax though (CA) so I'll have to wait for amazon.

I've got the 15.6" version (G51JX-X5, I believe) and the side vent doubles as a heater! It will keep a cup of coffee hot. Very not lap friendly, but a great lil' beastie of a notebook. Good for mobile gaming, and the accidental damage warranty is nice.

The only thing i see different than this is the slightly faster processor, from my original A-1 g73. I only paid $1500 plus shipping. Does the 100mhz warrant 250 bucks?

Tommy_G 09-01-2010 07:13 AM

I'm pretty sure this is the same laptop for a lesser price($1645.00). Correct me if I'm wrong though.

You can also get up to a 3% cash discount if you pay by cash transfer or Direct Cash Deposit, but I'm not completely sure how that works. (-$50.17)
Shipping is also free.
Not sure how tax works since it gets to the Billing information before it goes anywhere else.

Ok I'm done editing....(4-5 edits to this one post x.x)

Glad I jumped on the G73jh before BCB died. Got my baby for $1350.

You can currently get the ASUS G73JH-X1 for $1499 from egg.

It is no longer the $1449 deal when originally posted.
Does $250 justify the extra 500 GB of storage space on a 2nd HDD? :confused:

Great desktop replacement. I know quite a few people around campus who use these for campus. I dont know how their backs can handle it, but I guess you have to pay to have the best of both worlds.

Will wait till it comes below 1200

BCB...I MISS you
