4 out of 5 stars   So far so good

Review submitted for Asus G73SW-A1 Republic of Gamers 17.3-Inch Gaming Laptop - Black (ASG73JWA1)
Verified Purchaser
Pros: Quality Display, Powerful, Quiet, Fast
Cons: Short Battery Life
Other Comments: I love this computer. Mind you, I have always managed to get substandard machines as well as outright lemons - my last attempt before this was a Lenovo B520 All-in-one; the thing was a headache from day one, and thankfully [@] took it back. Whatever the case may be, this thing is POWERFUL - hasn't frozen on me yet. Even before I upgraded the ram, the thing handled everything I could throw at it (The software I typically run: Excel 2010, Dragon 11.5, Rosetta Stone, iTunes, Firefox, Notepad - not the heaviest of lifting, I know, but enough to befuddle some computers).It was somewhat discomforting to have to take my computer apart to install the ram (I upgraded to 16gb; overpowered for my uses, but I never want to have to wait for anything ever). I had never done that before, but have just enough technical competence to have gotten it done without breaking anything (i did use an anti-static wristband).The only thing bad about this computer that I have found is that I cannot get the keyboard backlight to work consistently; it comes on at startup, but does not respond to adjustment. Perhaps I messed it up when I disassembled the thing?

5 out of 5 stars   This machine is a Super-Beast!

Pros: Long Battery Life, Quiet, Quality Display, Comfortable Keyboard, Powerful, Fast, Very powerful machine
Cons: Heavier than it looks
Other Comments: I use a great deal of server-pushing and graphics-rendering software, which is very memory & processing-intense. I chose a gaming machine because the average computer does NOT handle these tasks well... but this machine takes the abuse like a champ!
