I have never owned a asus laptop but I have owned asus products and have had bad experiences with customer support. I refuse to buy asus components, but this deal was just to good to pass up and I needed something now.
However, turns out the sound issue was broken speakers. I called asus and as usual they where no help, so I took it back to best buy, and raised heck. Then walked out with a newer asus g750vw similar specs just newer. Everything is going good so far.
Except it won't let me update to newest driver, says unsupported hardware. I know that's more aid a nvidia issue though.

I was going to say something earlier but the guy with the rabbit on his head and the huge adams apple usually freaks out if you say anything bad about "gaming laptops".
Just turn the settings down and try to tolerate it while you wait for your new machine.
Maybe consider selling it and picking up a less expensive laptop, it will game pretty much the same as what you have now.
I disagree. Yes laptops are generally slower in order to maintain mobility, but that's not so say they can't be capable gaming rigs. For instance on this lappy I can do all games just not at max.
So far on my new one it can do bf3 on very high - ultra, crysis 3 on medium. Not bad for a work laptop
Yes you can build an equivalent desktop for much cheaper, but for those that need über portability they are great.Edited by Dimaggio1103 - 7/6/13 at 7:51am
