Just got this from J&R as it's local.

Only had it a few days so this is just a first impression -

What a beaut! - This laptop looks and feels like my perfect ideal for a laptop, understated (no crappy chrome-esq plastic, big glowing lights etc)just a very nice matte black soft finish, nice lines, small(ish) logo, everything looks and feels so solid it just comes together and seems right, a good weight, its not trying to be sleek and light, its just doing one job (high performance) and that is how it looks and feels, I will put up with the weight (not that bad in the included rucksack). So my first impression is very favorable.

So I'm in the process of getting all the software sorted out, which i guess is fun.

Here's my initial pro's/cons:

Pro's:
1 - This beast barely breaks a sweat - I mean its so quite, the stealth image does do it justice, it's very quite almost silent, when I reran the window index thingy the sound never changed, and doesn't even feel warm.

2 - Screen is lovely Matte and very very bright clear and generally amazing, way too intense in a dark room, my old dell xps 1330 which is sitting besides with both at max brightness it looks like a dull yellow compared, it has very good angular visibility too.

3 - Keyboard is nice, firm well spaced out, I like the keyboard lights - without it keys actually very hard to see in low light, as the text doesn't contrast at all with the black keys.

3 - Touchpad nice size and nice to have multi-touch gestures.

4 - Asus software, actually some useful software(and bloatware see Cons) - like fastboot which delays boot items.

Im gonna cut straight to what you gamers want to hear.
This laptop can run skyrim at MAX settings, and ittl get a TEEENY bit choppy in towns.
It can run WoW at max settings, without skipping a beat. (poor internet connections may still slow the loading of orgrimmar though)
It can run SWTOR at max settings, and same as wow, my slow interet speeds slow the loading of the Republic fleet on a busy day.
It can run Tf2 at max settings, even when i use console commands to DOUBLE the gamespeed on offline practice mode.
It runs minecraft at full settings without flaw.
Im currently installing Just Cause 2 and Portal 2 and Garys mod to test those games, but based on how it handled the first 5, im sure they'll do just fine

The gaming mouse mine came with was a nice freebie, but as a long time user of the Razer Naga, i feel that the button placement for hte included mouse is horrible for gaming. Two on either side of the primary mouse buttons. and 2 below the scroll wheel.

It also comes with a backpack. Ive only used the backpack for 1 day so far, but it seems like a decent backpack.
The backpack is dark grey with mild green. (at least the one *I* received is that color, peraps the colors vary)

at first i ordered this laptop by mistake ( i was reviewing the G73sx ) but after researching more, and seeing in person how big a 17'3 laptop is, im glad i got this version.

The trackpad is OKAY i guess, but when im playing anything but SWTOR or WOW, i use an external mouse.

also its easy to disable the trackpad so you dont hit it by accident, you just press Fn+F9

the lighted keyboard is very nice, there are also arrows on the WASD keys, and a little jumping dude on the spacebar.

I purchased the Asus laptop based on a recommendation from my son, who has had an Asus for the last 2 years. The G53SX is a great PC! It was delivered early and was exactly what I had ordered, all parts in place and ready to rock and roll! I wanted a good gaming machine for Lord of the Rings Online, and it is just perfect for it! The HD screen is wonderful. It's a somewhat heavier laptop, but I chalk that up to the fact that it is made out of sturdy, quality, materials. Oh, one thing that I should mention is how quiet this laptop is. Compared to my older HP laptop, I barely know I am running anything, even my hi-def game! And it is super-cool, temperature-wise, too! I've had it for about a month or so and am very happy with it!

I've been using the computer for just over two weeks now and love it! When I first purchased a laptop in 2007, my main objective was to get something powerful for online gaming. At that time I was playing World of Warcraft, and the rig I had purchased harnessed more than enough power to handle it smoothly. Most people into PC gaming though, are well aware that WoW is not a very graphically intensive game. So what I ended up with was a laptop that was great for playing games at my desk at home, but not practical at all for any other purpose. It was too cumbersome, weighed somewhere in the neighborhood of 15 pounds, had a 17 inch screen and a 10"x3x"4" "Brick" that was part of the power cord. So I essentially had a "mobile computer", that wasn't really mobile at all which I spent far too much money on and turned out being a lemon after 6 months with horrible customer support. But I'm not writing this review on that laptop, I'm just trying to give you a little history on what motivated me to buy this particular laptop. So, back to the original topic at hand...the product review.

This time around when I decided to purchase another laptop I decided to go with something smaller, lighter weight and powerful enough to handle today's games without going too far over the top on the hardware. One of the main problems I've noticed with buying what is regarded as "today's most powerful computer" is that the more powerful the rig, the bigger it gets. This laptop seems to be a perfect balance between the two for me. The size is right, so the computer is mobile and it has pretty decent graphics power. The first thing I installed was "Rift", which is an MMO similar in gameplay to World of Warcraft but far more graphically demanding.
