Asus G73 : Gaming Laptop
The G73 laptop first debuted at CES in January and got quite a lot of attention due to its design. What, an aesthetically pleasing gaming laptop monstrosity, NEVER? Actually it does look quite nice, supposedly designed based on stealth fighters. Anyway its finally got some specs a date and a price tag so I’m going to give you the quick run-through.
The laptop itself is kitted out to match its Stealth Jet counterparts. a 17.3” FullHD screen is powered via Intel’s wonderful Core i7-720QM processor (thats a Quad-Core 1.6GHz 6MB Cache processor to you and me) a whopping 8GB of DDR3 delicious RAM, 1TB HDD but the obvious need for a gaming laptop, the GPU. Well it’s the ATI Mobility Radeon HD5870 which should easily play all the latest PC games at high graphics levels. Also it comes with a Blu-Ray drive.
Obviously this is Asus going for Alienware at the jugular, making a high end laptop with the looks to match only this one looks better than most if not all Alienware machines of old. It’s tasty Matte Black finish and 5 degree sloping keyboard look great.
Shipping next month to the UK this laptop will not make your pocket happy costing a massive £1899. However if you have the money or for some reason you don’t like gaming desktops, this could be the one for you.
