With power and performance, substance and style, the ASUS G series will revolutionize your gaming experience. Empower your gaming potential with the full throttle power and portable performance of the G Series from ASUS, part of the prestigious Republic of Gamers that is committed to delivering innovative and best performing PC solutions for gamers. The G73JH-A1 comes with a 17.3" FHD (1920x1080) Screen, ATI® Mobility Radeon HD 5870 GDDR5 1024MB Graphics Card, 8GB 1066MHz Ram (Upgradeable to 32GB), Intel® Core™ i7-720QM Mobile Processor, DUAL 500GB 7200RPM (1.0TB Total) Hard Drives, plus tons of other great features...
With faster, intelligent, multi-core technology that applies processing power where its needed most, the G73JH powered by new Intel Core i7 mobile processor delivers an incredible breakthrough in gaming performance. The unit relies on the combination of Intel Turbo Boost technology and Intel Hyper-Threading technology to activate full processing power exactly where and when you need it most.






The ATi Mobility Radeon HD 5870 3D Graphic Card with 1024 MB GDDR5 VRAM delivers remarkable performance and an unsurpassed acceleration for spectacular gaming. Experience a more fluid, more detailed, more realistic 3D high-definition while playing the game or watching movie. Never a moment of delay to occur, feel the excitement!




One-click overclocking is your secret weapon, because Republic of Gamers (ROG) notebooks are the only rigs that overclock with the push of a button—no reboot required. Just hit the switch and watch your CPU’s performance increase, no matter what application you’re running. G73JH gamers get the upper hand thanks to EAX 4.0 3D surround that makes every morsel of audio come to life in vivid detail for complete spatial awareness. Great gaming deserves great sound – not the tinny output other notebooks have.
Nothing fazes the G73JH – it runs the latest releases in high detail, no more watered down versions. This beast has Intel® Core™ i7 processors that handle all comers with on demand overclocking through Turbo Boost, hurtling CPU speeds up to 3.33GHz. All it takes is one key press and extra power becomes available.


Inspired by the F117 stealth bomber, the matte-finished G73JH is an ergonomic feast of gamer-centric features – a huge keyboard that lights up for night time ops and can be turned off instantly for stealth, ample handrest real estate and rubberized surface areas for comfort during prolonged sessions.



Memory goes up to a formidable 32GB – run smoothly and relentlessly since nothing needs to be left out. The new G73JH signifies a move towards uncompromised notebooks, so we packed it to the gills with hardware.



Twin rear exhausts draw heat away from the action with some of the best cooling around. This afterburner effect doesn’t come with a noise penalty – G73SW is a formidable performer, but it’s deadly silent.



With three cutting-edge technologies – LifeFrame, SmartLogon and Virtual , ASUS offers you a complete solution to communicate wirelessly.





Its spacious illuminated gaming keyboard gives you the competitive advantage so when others are fumbling for keys in the dark, you keep a step ahead of the game.





The G73SW displays HD content with full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution picture source delivers unmatched visual and audio quality. Plus HDMI interface.

Jaidon van Herwaarden - 10/05/2010 5 of 5 Stars!
Wow... I have been looking for a laptop with great specs, low price, and one that can play any game I throw at it with style, and zero lag. This is the one. The service here is amazing as well. I have absolutley no complaints with the respect, patience, and respond time of this awesome company. No matter what, I will be buying my next computer from here. As for the laptop itself, It has so many useful features and so many things tht you would never imagine to see on a laptop! Like a subwoofer! Needless to say I fell in love at first sight.
Michael Campo - 08/25/2010 5 of 5 Stars!
Let me start out by saying that I love this laptop. I have had the laptop for about a month at the time of writing this review. Although I have had other laptops, and many desktops over the last few years, this is the first "Gaming" laptop I have ever purchased. Here are my thoughts on the various aspects of this laptop. Gaming Performance: This laptop does everything I bought it to do. The main reason I purchased it was to play StarCraft 2 and it does an excellent job at running it. The game runs super smooth with all settings maxed out. The only other game I have played on this laptop is The Sim 3. At max settings, the framerate is not as smooth as I would prefer but still plenty fast enough to be playable. This is mainly noticed when zoomed out, viewing a lot of the city. When you zoom in closer to your sim, things run very smooth. Overall Performance: In addition to StarCraft 2, the other main use for this laptop is running Photoshop CS4 at work. It performs well, easily outpacing my work computer, an AMD 2.2 Quad-Core. In general, I have been very impressed the multi-tasking capability of this laptop. I can easily run multiple programs from the Adobe Master Collection simultaneously (Photoshop, Illustrator, Bridge & iTunes) and it performs as though I only have one program open. In comparison, my AMD Quad-Core at work struggles with this. Display: The 1080p display is absolutely beautiful whether watching bu-ray movies or playing games. Only downside is that the glossy finish is bad about showing glare. Audio: The audio is the best I've ever heard from a laptop. High def music is decent, but gaming sound effects are where this thing really shines. It absolutely rocks when playing StarCraft 2! Styling: I love the stealth fighter styling. The shape and styling says that this is no ordinary laptop while still maintaining a measure of class. This laptop will be at home both at a the office by day and a lan party by night. Keyboard/Touchpad: The backlit keyboard is great and is easily adjustable via function keys. There are also function keys for a variety of other everyday tasks such as power control, screen brightness and and audio controls. The keyboard also has a numpad off to the side. The touchpad itself is decent, but the buttons are overly difficult to push. I wonder if the buttons will break-in and soften up with time? This issue doesn't really bother me since I use the included Asus mouse 99% of the time. Accessories: Included with the laptop is an Asus backpack and an Asus USB mouse. Since I ride a motorcycle back and forth to work during the summer, the backpack made this laptop an even sweeter deal. Like the laptop, the backpack looks sharp without being over the top. As for the mouse, I figured it would be a bargain bin piece but to my surprise, it is one of the nicest mice I've ever had, even compared to my favorite Logitech devices, the trackball and the MX Revolution. I dare you to find a surface that the Asus mouse doesn't read perfectly. Other Notes: The laptop does a phenomenal job of staying cool, even with all the power it packs. My previous laptop, a Fujitsu Lifebook, could not be left in a lap for more than a few minutes before you would break into a sweat from the heat it generates. Which is surpising since it only has a dual-core CPU and no dedicated GPU. This Asus however keeps surprisingy cool even when pushed hard. I can comfortably leave it in my lap while playing games for hours. On another note, the laptop comes preloaded with quite a bit of software. While some of it is useful like the customization and power management software, most of the other stuff is absolute junk and was quickly removed from my machine. I wish manufacturers wouldn't do this but it is not as bad as an HP or Compaq. Battery Life: Battery life is not great, but I expected this out of a gaming machine. For things like surfing the web and other tasks that don't tax the CPU or GPU, you can expect about an hour and a half before the battery quits. While gaming with the settings at max, you've only got about 20, maybe 30 minutes. Problems: I have only had one minor issue with this laptop and it seems some others have had the same issue. Most of the time, the laptop will hang, crash or otherwise be unable to wakeup from Sleep/Standby mode. I have had other computers with this problem. Since this is not a big issue to me, I adjusted my power settings to prevent the laptop from going into Sleep/Standby mode. It will hibernate without any problems. Overall, I love this laptop and would definately recommend it to anybody wanting a performance gaming rig without the Alienware price tag. It is not perfect, but I have never owned a perfect computer. Personally, the small flaws it does have are not really an issue to me. My next computer will most likely be an Asus or possibly a Sager since I have heard good things about them. One last note, dealing with XoticPC.com was very simple and pleasant. There was an issue with my bank blocking debit transactions in certain states and the XoticPC staff was very helpful getting the problem fixed and expediting my shipping. Thanks guys!

as with others, I received the PSOD hardware failure (Psychedelic Screen of Death), and sent to Asus for warranty repair. Two months later, I have not received my notebook back. I left for China on vacation and called asus specifically to put a hold on shipping until I came back. Guess what, shipped while I was gone and it went back. Fedex says it was returned. Asus still tries to say my notebook is shipped. I reference the tracking numbers.... and they blame the repair center for not shipping it out... and said would call me back in 24 hours... and have said the same thing.. for 3 days in a row... now tell me I have to wait til Monday. I hate when I get a Pakistani sounding guy who just wants to pass the buck onto someone else instead of resolving my complaint. Like I said... 2 MONTHS later, no notebook. I received my notebook on May 19th, and sent for warranty repair on June 7th. August 13th today and still haven't seen my notebook. For those of you wanting to know the research I have found on the hardware failure causing the PSOD, it has something to do with the screen resolution switching resolutions in the LCD matrix controller. Mine Failed while plugging the HDMI into my Samsung HDTV to watch a blu-ray movie on the HDTV. Do NOT expect your G73JH to be repaired quickly. Mine had a manufacture date of April 2010. It's a great notebook, but I'm concerned about the longterm use of it, and especially of the warranty repair.
Say Ly - 08/08/2010 5 of 5 Stars!
I purchased this laptop long time ago maybe in the early January and received it on late march. Its a great laptop, i really enjoyed it. The speakers were awesome, great sounds prefect for gaming. The graphics card back then was top of the line but now i believe that its still rank number 2 right after the GTX480M. This notebook is worth the money, considering this is probably the best price for a top of the line notebook. I didn't really encounter any issues with the hibernate and the screen mess up or anything. But i did encounter the gray strips on my notebook once and that's about it. But remembered this gray is due to driver issue but now i believed it should be resolved. By the way this is my first ASUS notebook, great experience, highly recommended. Plus you got great warranties.
Timofey Galuza - 08/05/2010 5 of 5 Stars!
I received the laptop about 2-3 months ago and have had no problems whatsoever. Played Bad Company 2, modern warfare 2, medal of honor beta, starcraft , and many other games high-highest settings with no problems (would have put everything on highest settings, but didnt want to lag slightly online. Put it to sleep, hibernate but with no problems as other ppl have had. Everything works perfectly. The mouse is really one of the best accessories it could have come with the laptop, its a razor mouse with two side buttons on the left side, and a dpi switch with 6 settings that can be switched mid game or whenever, would probably cost $100+ from razor. The packback is nice as well, but dont underestimate the size of this laptop if you havent seen it physically, the packpack that it comes with is probably one of the only cases that will fit it. I could not find a notebook sleeve that can be used with the G73 so its pretty large. The laptop runs pretty quite during games and stays pretty cool. The only time i have had it and the power supply heat up more then usual was when i was sitting on the floor with it in my lap. This is pretty much a mobile desktop then a laptop, its too big and pricy (in my opinion) to take to my university on a daily basis, but what you get is a fast, high-quality gaming laptop that can be taken to a friends house or school or wherever if needed. Almost forgot, the 1980x1080 screen is really nice with no dead pixels. I have had no complaints so far and dont expect to, if you need a high-quality gaming laptop, but don't mind the size and weight, then this is the only laptop to buy. I have also checked alienware and their comparison spec-for-spec (including the 2 yr warrenty) would cost over $3000.
