I would definetly recommend the ASUS G Series G73JH-RBBX05. I wouldn't worry myself over the fact that its recertified, at least its not refurbished.

I was also scared about buying the G73JH because I heard it has GSOD errors, like MAD.

You mean BSOD? I think the recertified versions (I may be wrong) they fixed the BSOD problem. I wouldn't see why it would either looking at the reviews.

Go to the feedback page on the newegg page for the laptop, and go to page 2 of reviews and CTRL + F and type GSOD, you can see what I'm talking about.

Yea, that can be fixed with a simple bios/vbios update. He obviously didn't do it right.

Have a good day

Ok, I'm bumping the thread for the LAST time, I have a final of 3 choices to make.

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834115987

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...21#SnetMark_77

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboD...t=Combo.595081

For the 730$ Acer aspire, would it be able to handle League of legends at max settings with a good FPS, and no overheat? If so, I'm just going to buy that one.

League of legends is the ONLY game I play, the rest will be used for college.
I don't want to spend extra money for something I'm not going to use.

If the 730$ will be enough for playing LoL at best settings, I'll just go with that.

The MSI after the 100$ mail in rebate will be 990$(2 year Extended warranty)
Pros compared to the Recertified Asus- It has a 4 year warranty compared to the 90 day warranty of the asus.
60$ Cheaper than Asus after rebate.
740QM CPU compared to the 720QM of the Asus

Pros of Recertified Asus:
17.3" screen compared to 16" of the MSI.
1600x900 resolution compared to the 1366 x 768 of the MSI.
Backlit keyboard
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 which is said to be better than the GTX 285M

Please let me primarily know how the 730$ laptop will handle League of Legends.

Thanks in advance

No, he means GSOD... it's an ATI thing. I own this laptop and it doesn't have "GSOD errors, like MAD". I may mitigate the GSODs coming my way by using a cooler, but I've always used a cooler. I get 0-3 a month on average. I also OC it 50-100MHz [so I'm only 50MHz shy of a desktop HD5770] and 100MHz on the VRAM.

I have some old benchmarks in my sig too if you haven't noticed TC.

Another thing is this has a i7 Quad with HT, it is pretty strong for games. Also, with a respectable GPU and CPU [and add in 6GB of RAM and speakers that perform well] if you want to upgrade later on it should hold some resale value.
