Gaming Laptop ASUS G73JH-X1 w/**SSD** i7 quad core 17.3" display Radeon HD 5870 , 8 gigs ram
Very powerful gaming laptop! The SSD upgrade (240GB SSD + 500 HD = 740GB total storage) makes booting and game loading super fast!!
Quad Core i7
Graphics card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5870
SSD upgrade: Fresh install on a OCZ Vertex 3 VTX3-25SAT3-240G 2.5" 240GB SATA III
The original 500 GB HD remains installed for extra storage: Yes, this laptop supports two hard drive bays!!
HD Display: there were two models in this series and this laptop is the one with the higher end HD display (1080p)
Overall condition is very good - very little visible wear, you can find a scratch or two on the case but the display has no scratches.
Boot loader lets you select between SDD boot (default) with a clean Windows 7 install with essential drivers and no bloat ware, or you can boot into the original Asus stock Windows installation on the original HD.
Damaged power adapter: The power adapter cord was severed and repaired - spliced and soldered. Works fine but consider it damaged for the terms of the sale.
It was really nice to have a gaming laptop. It's very convenient to be able to switch rooms, go on the couch, table etc. This one's a beast! With the SSD upgrade, this is really better than new. I ran BF3, L4D 1 and 2, Skyrim, Dragon Age. This laptop can really handle any game.
