This machine is one smooth operator. It has a smoking CPU and GPU that are unbelievable. I just finished testing out the most recent releases (Black Ops, Civ 5, Metro 2033, etc....)
I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW THIS MACHINE EATS THESE UP. In comparison, My Desktop runs 2 GTX 480 SLI and this laptop is running right along with it. Amazing hardware configuration. The heat goes right out the back vents. It really is like a stealth fighter, lol. Lap and keyboard stay nice and cool. Very Quiet even at full throttle. I am in utter disbelief. I LOVE IT. Speakers are great. I m listening to music right now while I am writing this and it sounds GREAT. Keyboard is nice. ASUS solved the past issue with the G73 Keyboard. I use a Logitech Everywhere Mouse, but the touch pad is very nice and responsive as well. All the features you would expect from a high end laptop. The Screen is beautiful at 1900 x 1280. The G53JW-A1 Version I believe comes with an extra year warranty and of course another 250GB (750GB Total) hard Drive that is FAST and Quiet. An extra 90 bucks seemed worth it to me. (Opposed to the G53JW-XA1).
Machine can be OC'ed and you can add an additional HDD. Yes That's right. UNBELIEVABLE LAPTOP for under 1500.00.
The machine came with a lot of bloat ware on it. But there is a not so painful solution. It also comes with a drivers disk. I solved the problem quickly through some simple pre-ordered research and just reformatted the Hard-drive into one Partition and reloaded windows and then reload the Drivers and skipped the bloatware. Easy solution!Read more ›
Pros--Runs quiet and cool. Used in on my lap for several hours and it barely gets warmer than a Time magazine. Other laptops, i've always had to use some sort of pad so your legs dont over heat, but this one channels the heat out of the 2 pack ports nicely.
Back lighting-- keyboard lighting is fantastic. I didn't realize how nice this was until I had it. If you've ever tried to log on using a password with special characters in a dimly lit room, you know how hard it can be to find the right keys. Turn on the keyboard lights, log on, turn it back off if you like. Awesome. Others are wowed by how cool a lit keyboard looks. Other reviewers don't like the fact that you can see the lights leaking out from around the edges of the keys, but really, it just outlines the actual key itself, and i think it looks really good.
A great hinge--I have had several laptops that had flimsy hinges (Dell Inspiron comes to mind), where after about 500 open close cycles, the plastic covering the hinges starts to pop open or hang up. This one seems, so far, very solid and stiff enough so you can set it to any degree and it will stay. If you've ever had one that was loose (listen up Dell), you know there are a few spots where it wants to close--usually around 25 degrees.Read more ›
Three times, the damned power plug breaks. Every time, ASUS customer service said it was "obviously" user abuse and that I would have to pay for it. Because, apparently, you're never ever supposed to unplug your computer. Ever. Why else would the pin break than from the abusive unplugging of the power cord! I raised enough of a fuss for them to "graciously waive" the repair fee; their words, not mine. I haven't had it for more than two months without a problem. Last time I sent it in, I got it back with several dead pixels on the screen-but I needed the computer too much to send it out again and wait another 2-3 weeks for them to repair it and send it back.
Now, the damned thing crashes. Completely. No reasons, no warning, the whole thing shut off, and will not reboot. My fiance was using his laptop (same model) to try to recover my computer, when his power pin snaps off as well. Customer service also tell him it's customer abuse, this time though they say leaving it plugged in softens the pin and makes it snap off. Uh....sounds like a design flaw, not user error to me. Anyway, TERRIBLE computer, terrible customer service. Seriously, DO NOT buy this laptop. Never buying an ASUS product again!
Thanks ASUS, I'm getting a MAC.
