    I own a Asus UL80Jt, worked awesome when i first bought it, but then i did something to make it suck. It runs WoW at ultra with no issue. I only spent 816$ exactly at Bestbuy for it.
  4. Sorry if I post here, but I want to buy a good gaming laptop or notebook. I don't want to spend more than $1900. I just wonder if this mode, ASUS Republic of Gamers G73JH-A1 17-Inch Gaming Laptop, is any good. I saw it awhile ago, but I just wonder if there is anything better in market.

    Thanks.

    P.S. I just saw a newer model, ASUS G73JH-X5 Republic of Gamers 17.3-Inch, which sells for about $1600.00. Any input or opinion on what to buy? These are the specs for this new model:

    * Intel i7-720QM (1.60 GHz Quad-Core with Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz)
    * 8GB DDR3 1066MHz , 4 SODIMM Sockets, up to 8GB
    * 640GB (320GB x 2) 7200RPM HDD; Blue-Ray Disk Combo Drive; 802.11 b/g/n
    * ATI 5870 Graphics with 1G GDDR5; Windows Home Premium 64-bit Operating System
    * 17.3-Inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) LED Display; 2.0M Webcam;

    Get it, that thing is a beast.

    If you want one with a better processor, same gpu, and a 15.6'' screen, get this one.

    $1,599 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152211

    and I would usually NEVER EVER EVER recommend Alienware, but since you are close to the budget, it might be worth looking at, since is has TWO 5870's in crossfire and a better CPU. Solid performance.

    $1,999 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834200049

    I am more inclined to buy the newest model which I mentioned in my "P.S.". I will go for this:

    ASUS G73JH-X5 Republic of Gamers 17.3-Inch
    * Intel i7-720QM (1.60 GHz Quad-Core with Turbo Boost up to 2.8GHz)
    * 8GB DDR3 1066MHz , 4 SODIMM Sockets, up to 8GB
    * 640GB (320GB x 2) 7200RPM HDD; Blue-Ray Disk Combo Drive; 802.11 b/g/n
    * ATI 5870 Graphics with 1G GDDR5; Windows Home Premium 64-bit Operating System
    * 17.3-Inch Full HD (1920 x 1080) LED Display; 2.0M Webcam;

    which is selling for about $1600.00 at amazon-dot-com. Thanks.
