ASUS G73Jw Gaming Notebook: Toothless Monster?

 

The previous gaming laptop we reviewed, the MSI GT663R was really nice in terms of performance and looks. Of course it came at a slightly expensive price tag but then gaming laptops with good specifications are usually priced liked that. ASUS has come...

Despite a lot of neat features and some decent specifications, the G73Jw disappoints where it matters the most. This notebook performs averagely and would probably be a good buy had it been priced lower. Although the MSI GT663R comes at Rs. 1,49,999 it...

Asus G73Jw-A1 Review

 

A 17-inch notebook is going to be big, there's just no way around it. But after reviewing Malibal's ginormous X7200 desktop replacement in our Holiday issue, Asus's eight-pound, 11.8-ounce G73Jw-A1 seems highly portable by comparison. And at...

Quad-core i7; DX11 graphics; decent sound system; HD screen

You'll need to dial down detail to play newer games

Physically, the G73Jw-A1 is solid. Its matte finish mitigates unsightly fingerprints and its rubberized palm rest area feels pleasant. We also like the full-size chiclet-style keyboard, which is backlit for greater visibility in dark environments. And...

Asus G73Jw Review - PCWorld

 

Gamers looking for a powerful yet portable machine can stop looking. The Asus G73Jw is here. It's only a mild update to Asus's most recent previous lean, mean, gaming machine, the G73Jh. But with a slightly faster processor (a 1.73GHz Core i7 740QM vs....

Bright, easy-to-view screen

Keyboard is very slippery

This is a great notebook for gamers who are willing to spend additional money on peripherals.

ASUS G73Jw-A1

 

This stealth fighter-styled system gets an updated CPU and Nvidia graphics.

If you're looking for the ultimate gaming system, ASUS's G73Jw-A1 should definitely be near the top of your list, because of its strong performance scores. However, the stiff keyboard holds it back. If you're looking for a gaming system that has a...

Great build quality ; Very functional design ; Excellent display

Limited multitouch features ; No onboard RAID ; Not as fast as G73JH

Asus G73SW-BST6

 

The G73SW-BST6 has a full size keyboard with isolated keys and a number pad. There's a bit of flex to the keyboard but it is not too soft and is comfortable to type on. The keys are backlit with white LEDs, a nice touch for gamers who prefer to frag...

Speedy Sandy Bridge Core i7 processor. Solid graphics performance. Robust audio

Relatively low-res screen. No blu-ray drive. Mediocre battery life

The Asus Republic of Gamers G73SW-BST6 packs plenty of cutting edge technology into its substantial 17-inch frame, including a Sandy Bridge processor, discrete Nvidia graphics, and a speedy USB 3.0 port. However, it's missing a few key features that...

ASUS G73JW-A1 17.3-inch Gaming Notebook

 

What happens when ASUS takes its G73JH gaming notebook and crams more power in with a new NVIDIA GPU inside? Read on to find out.

Other than a surprisingly poor showing in the 3DMark Vantage benchmark, the ASUS G73JW-A1 is an all around decent performer with placement in all other benchmarks in the top five. Battery life was mid-pack, which is impressive for a multimedia/gaming...
