In addition to Core 95 and a Radeon 5730 graphics card

I think this one is a typo. It should be i5 instead.

9 key is just over the i key in the keyboard.
i can forgive that

Writer, at that.

It'd be great if whoever is a write for Tom's actually proof-reads their work before submitting.

Pretty nice laptop, though.

It's hard to proofread your own work. Everything you read is what came straight from your mind, and it sounds very home-ish to you. It's your writing, from your mind, and your subconscious barely detects anything amiss.

Now if someone else read the articles, however...

Hmm...
Completely uninterested. :D 
Though I still want a M11x (But with a much better CPU, GPU and LCD).
April 30, 2010 9:39:04 AM

Only 1366x768 for a 16" screen? Might as well throw in an older GPU and cut the price because that resolution is an insult the the 5730. And -1 for a glossy highly reflective screen, I can't stand glossy monitors when gaming. Needs more RAM too.

do it still include the button to overclock on the fly? Im not talking about i5 increasing the CPU speed when cores are not active, but the button that "raises the TDP" style overclocking?

Not bad for a cheap laptop. Asus G73jh is much better box tho, and if you go with the $1199 model it's an i7 with 500gb hdd and 6 gb ram.

wtf ? 4 gig is plenty enough for the use ... You need 8gb ? Get a pc not a notebook

Wow! This gear at $900.00 is almost a must buy. I'm looking forward to get a gaming laptop this year and this one coming from MSI might be my choice.
April 30, 2010 1:35:39 PM

nice price, screen res still to low and show me the benchmarks at high settings. Tired of all these "gaming" laptops running benchmarks at low and ultra low settings to pump up their numbers. Seems the word gaming is just being thrown around casually these days.

You might want to take equal care in proof reading your own comment. :)

Would be nice if there was an upgraded model for a little more money, e.g., higher resolution screen and a SSD.
April 30, 2010 2:59:23 PM

I'm much more impressed with the MSI GX640 (except its CPU) - Core i5-430m (:( ), Mobility Radeon 5850 (w/GDDR5), 4GB RAM.
April 30, 2010 3:10:35 PM

We're still buying computers with 768 vertical pixels? Sad.
When I bought a 15" laptop a couple of years ago I got a 1440x900 screen. Anything less and the pixels are huge.
April 30, 2010 3:17:28 PM

The hardware in these MSI laptops are usually a great value, but we have one at home and the keyboard is just terrible! They try and squeeze a full number pad onto a laptop keyboard and end up squishing all of the other keys, especially the shift button which just leads to more frustrations. It's a great value but really, what are they trying to do with this built in number pad it's not even needed.
April 30, 2010 3:21:21 PM

Not bad, especially for the price. Bought my GX630 about two years ago for way more and I love that laptop.
April 30, 2010 3:39:57 PM

We need more affordable 1920x1080 laptops out there. But this does look pretty sweet.
April 30, 2010 3:44:10 PM

Um. Why are we comparing a 16" w/ a 11.6"?
April 30, 2010 3:53:30 PM

This laptop really isn't that impressive when compared the offering from Asus.
April 30, 2010 5:40:14 PM

not bad, but acer's budget gaming powerhouse packs a 5650 for only $750 and since the 5730 has only a higher clockrate, i'd say the acer is a better bang for the buck.

And then of course I got an hp envy with 1080p for just over $1000 with tax and that beats em both cause it packs a 5830 with double the SP's of either of them. I'm so excited :)

abswindows7wtf ? 4 gig is plenty enough for the use ... You need 8gb ? Get a pc not a notebook


8 gigs isn't just for desktops anymore. I plan on upgrading my envy to 8 gigs after I get it. Of course it's easy on the envys due to having 4 ram slots. Though with 4 gig sticks coming down in price every day, laptops with 8 gigs will start being more commonplace.
April 30, 2010 6:09:43 PM

but can it run crysis 2?
ok now for my real 2 cents
i think the track pad should be on the other side (and bigger too)your wrist would be right on that thing when gaming. i would like to see an eco mode so if need be you could use this thing to surf the web n stuff for extended periods of time without being plugged into the wall.
April 30, 2010 6:47:16 PM

OK. One more time. Asus G73jh at Best Buy is $1199.99. Specs are:

Intel Core i7 720, 6GB DDR2 1333 RAM, 500GB hard drive at 7200, HDMI out, 1600 x 900 res, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870 w/ 1 GB GDDR5, wireless b/g/n, double-layer DVD+RW/CD-RW,sorry if I left anything out.

How is that resolution a poor pick for a 5730? Seems like a decent match up to me if you want to run decent graphics settings. I would rather a 1440x900 screen but I think a 1680x1050 or 1920x1080 would require settings too low for anything but old games or to run at non-native res, neither desirable for a "gaming" laptop.

Imo, Asus has the best gaming laptops for the price atm.

The new Asus line is just a great deal, well, a reasonable deal that slaughters the competition.
May 1, 2010 2:58:01 AM

ASUS right now is the choice in laptops, but MSI is filling their line with competitive laptops as well for alot cheaper. The MSI with the HD5850 is a huge bargain at around $1100. The rest of the laptop manufacturers are behind the times which is bad for technology.
