I carried my asus g73jh all over the place...if you have the right bag for it I dont really see the issue. 13" mac book pros are only 3 lbs or so lighter.

If you really want a good gaming experience on a laptop and battery life/ ultra portability is not all that important then the asus g53 is going to be the best choice. They are also very quiet as compared to even normal laptops let alone gaming laptops

Yeah, no... 8.5 pounds and 4.5 pounds aren't really comparable at all. And the Sager weighs 5.7 pounds, so that's almost a 3 pound difference. Just because you can lug, or want to lug it around, doesn't mean some other people will. And you can get a good gaming experience with the Sager, so your initial argument isn't really valid. You can play almost all games at 1600x900 and high settings. If that's not a good gaming experience, I don't know what is.

6GB of RAM is only better than 4GB if you're doing extreme multitasking or doing some editing/3D rendering at extremely high resolutions. Otherwise, no. In games and normal applications it won't make a difference.

Ok. Didn't think so since I usually only have Chrome and 1 other program up. I won't be doing 3D rendering either. If I do, it will probably be lower like 720p.

For that it's fine. As far as multi-tasking, you can have around 15 apps open with 4GB and not have a machine bog down.

Perfect. Is that with the 500GB 7200RPM HDD, though?

You are right of course, it is all subjective. To me if I want a really thin and light thing I know I am not going to use it for gaming, and the difference in weight forme is not a big deal. I figure a decent multimedia/gaming laptop is going to be somewhere between 5 & 10 lbs. To me anywhere in between those numbers is acceptable, the op didn't really specify a weight preference so he can put how much ever emphasis on that he wants

The 460m or other dedicated gaming gpu's van be overkill for some games, but even those cannot play all modern games at high. And a 1080 screen is prefereable to a 900p for me for gaming as well as video/photo editing.

That sager is cetainly also a great machine and depending on how the op ways the pros and cons of each it may certainly be the best laptop for him. But as I said, if gaming is the primary focus, then the asus is the clear winner.

Gl with the decision op, I certainly wish I had $1200 to drop on a new lappy
