Laptop - Complicated

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I have been looking for a good, sturdy gaming laptop that weighs about 2-4kg
I want a laptop that i can use for school, work and games. I generally run alot of apps so alot of memory is a plus. I also think of DX11 as a must too. As the laptop will probably take alot of punishment a all metal case is also a must
Any reccomendations?

740QM?
HDD 5400rpm?
5850?

Surely there is better out there? (good shot though, without knowing the budget :-)

I think there are some dual GPU laptops out there with a higher CPU but I'm not sure about durability and battery life.

How is this one
It seems to run really cool and is rather powerful.
How is the weight? Is 3.7 kg too much? I need this for schoolwork and work + games

Yes, but will it blend?

Nah just kidding, but is it strong enough?

According to Notebookcheck.net (http://www.notebookcheck.net/Review-Asus-G73JH-ATI-HD-5870-Gaming-Notebook.28191.0.html)

In terms of robustness, there is not much to criticize the G73 for. Both the top and bottom of the laptop respond very little to pressure, with the exception of the keyboard area. Likewise, the lid does a good job of resisting torque forces, and you can only bring about distortions in the screen picture by applying direct pressure to the screen itself. The lid's hinges are really quite large, and only provide a very limited opening angle (which is not ideal for tall people). The hinges hold the screen firmly in position, and the base unit only moves a very small amount when the viewing angle is adjusted

If you have the time to wait Asus should be refreshing their line with Sandy Bridge quad cores and the exciting thing is that the majority of those Sandy Bridge mobile cpus are faster than any of the old nehalem mobile i7s. The G73s however should be free of the overheating issues as well. I know that if I was loaded that would be the low end laptop for me.
