Well, I finally took the plunge and bought this laptop. I was looking to replace my desktop and I looked at various Qosmios and Asus laptops. Based on my research, Toshiba and Asus had the least amount of defects/issues compared to Sony, Dell, HP, and Apple so I wanted to get a laptop from them. Here is the link to the study that was done. [...]
There were four models I researched. Qosmio Q870 and Q877, and the Asus G73JH-RBBX05 and Asus G73JH. Here are key specs

Q870 Price $1190 (on sale at another company since this model is no longer being sold)
Processor - I7 720QM
Video Card - NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 360M
Ram - 4mb
Display 18.4
Resolution: 16802x945
Bluetooth and Blue Ray
500 HD 7200rpm
4 USB ports including ESATA

Q887 Price $1399 (same specs as teh Q870 except for the processor)
Processor - I7 740QM
Video Card - NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 360M
Ram - 4mb
Display 18.4
Resolution: 16802x945
Bluetooth and Blue Ray
500 HD 7200rpm
4 USB ports including ESATA

ASUS G73JH-RBBX05 $1299.99
Processor - I7 720QM
Video Card - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870
Ram - 6mb
Display 17.3
Resolution - 1600x900
No Bluetooth, no Blue Ray
500 HD 7200rpm
4 USB ports

Asus G73JH $1329.99
Processor - I7 720QM
ATI Mobility(tm) Radeon® HD 5730
Ram - 4gb
Display 17.3
Resolution - 1600x900
Bluetooth and Blue Ray
640 HD 7200rpm
3 USB ports and 1 3.0 USB ports

I ultimately decided on the Q887 because it had the larger display and faster processor. I wasn't too concern about the 3.

Just got it today and I updated the windows and installed Starcraft 2 (the real reason why I purchased this laptop). It's so so sweet. I'm playing Starcraft on ... high? NOPE. It's running on ULTRA with no problems. Actually, the graphics look so crisp and clear that it's kind of hard to see where your units are because they blend into the reflections and shadows of the surrounding so well. Haven't had a lot of units on screen, thanks to my SC skills, so I haven't seen if it causes the laptop to lag or not. I have a Macbook Pro and the bottom gets hot, so I order a laptop cooler for this laptop just in case (hasn't arrive yet). This laptop doesn't feel hot yet though. Not after 2 hours of SCing. Anyways, it's about 20lbs so I wouldn't put it on my lap anyways, if you're concerned about that.

Pros: Fast; everything pre-installed; excellent "pc." I say PC because this laptops way faster than my current gaming PC, granted, the gaming PC is 5 years old and a lot cheaper. Speakers are awesome. You can feel the vibrations flowing through the laptop. I moved the laptop a little and this HDD protection thing went off. With these huge speakers, I'm surprise that HDD protection thing doesn't go off more often due to the vibration from the speakers. I feel like I need to break in the speakers, they're that big and loud!

Cons: The audio buttons on the left side ... I have hit it a few times playing SC. You know, using the CTRL+number to assign groups. Or even while ALT+tabbing. Why didn't they put it on the right side, after the num pad? Or above the top? I don't know. Anyways, I've just been hitting the volume buttons, no biggie. Of course, extra Toshiba/Etc. software. I deleted some. Some might be useful, who knows? I'll run a few of them later to see.

When I first got the laptop, it crashed on a daily basis due to problems with the NVIDIA drivers. I did some research on the net and found some help from someone called XACTXX on the NVIDIA forum. I don't know if Amazon will allow the link, so I'll copy and paste the solution in case any other purchasers have the same issue:

"The problem lies with the Toshiba Windows 7 theme that comes pre-installed with the laptop, which somehow conflicts with the graphics card. This is why most laptops that get this error are indeed Toshiba ones!

So all you need to do is the following:

1) Right-click on an empty space in your desktop, and click on 'Personalize'.
2) Choose the 'Windows 7 Basic' theme. Make sure you do not choose any of the Aero or Toshiba themes.
3) Click on OK.

You should now not get any more NVIDIA Display Kernel crashes."

And he was correct! I went from sometimes 2 or 3 crashes a day to no crashes in 2 weeks.

My one complaint about this computer is the speakers. The sound (quality and volume) is better than on my Toshiba Satellite, but it keeps going up and down when I'm playing music. Weird. I see that someone else solved the issue with external speakers, but I think for a computer in this price range, having to buy extra speakers to get sound volume that remains constant is rather annoying.

The touch pad also sucks, but I use a wireless mouse, so that doesn't bother me.

Other than those negatives, it's great, fast, and performs well. It's been 3 weeks, and so far so good. (And it's now $200 cheaper than what I paid:-))
