Asus keeps rolling out more and more and more this year in Computex and CES, yeesh.

Asus's G73


The G73 model originally came out at CES, and packed a i7 720QM, a ATI Mobile 5870, and 6GB of RAM, upgradable to 16GB.

Asus's New G53


The G53 model is a little cousin of the G73 powerhouse that's popping out at Computex. It packs a nice, portable 15.6" screen, and a i7 720QM standard, which can have TurboBoost operated via a one-touch button. 6GB of RAM and "nVidia Enthusiast" graphics, soon to be detailed, also make up this machine.

Pretty much on par with most 15.6" laptops, here's where the fun part comes in. It can pack up to 16GB of RAM, and can even store two 2.5" hdds. TWO, on a 15.6" platform, with RAID 1/0 supported. Oh, and did I mention it can support nVidia's 3D vision?

Aesthetics wise, it still keeps the nice stealth-inspired tone of the G73, and it still vents air out the back, won't burn your hands as you game on it Big%20Smile Backlit keys and a large touchpad finish it off. Summary? Exactly what it was supposed to be, a mini G73.

Price? Probably gonna be around $1400, considering that the G73 started at $1550. TELL ME that isn't a good deal LOL

Looks great, really does.

I just wonder about heat dissipation on such a slim powerhouse... and why they chose to make the touchpad asymetrical.

Laptops are crap at disippating heat, thats why you should avoid overclocking them (especially metal ones like the MacBook Pro).
