  1. Yes G73 is a great choice
    SAGER NP8760 would be another good option

  2. hm thanks maziar for the option but im still leaning towards the G73 because when I up the specs on the SAGER to match the G73 the price is around $1800
  3. Do you only want a 17" laptop ? or are you considering 15 or other sizes too ?

    Hi there,

    You may also want to check out the Alienware M15x. It has NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 240M graphics and a super fast 2.8 GHz Intel® Core™ i7-720QM processor.

    What do you think of the Alienware?

  5. But G73 has a 5870M which blows away a GT 240M.
    For M15x,i would choose HD 5850M for gaming

    Im really ok with any size preferably 15"+ but I want a resolution of 1920×1080 for full HD videos

    @IsabellaWinTe wow that alienware seems way overpriced. Right now I think the G73 is still looking like the better choice. An $350 for 8gbs ram, thats insanity. The G73 has 8GB DDR3 ram and its so much cheaper than the m15x
  7. Well for 15",Sager NP8690 is a good option and you can customize it with a FULL HD display

  8. Hi, how about Qosmio X505-Q870 or Qosmio X505-Q880? I personally love its design and power:
    * Intel® Core™ i7-720QM processor
    * Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
    * 4GB (6GB) DDR3 1066MHz memory
    * 500GB HDD (7200rpm)
    * 1GB GDDR5 NVIDIA® GeForce® GTS 360M

    drfs
  9. That's good too but ASUS G73 has a HD 5870M which performs better than a GT 360M by a significant margin

    Hi Scione,

    Alienwares tend to be expensive gaming laptops. I just wanted to provide it as an alternative suggestion to consider since it hadn't been mentioned in the discussion. Have you settled on the G73? I hope you enjoy it!
