    pecs are good, but it is a 12'. Something in 15' or bigger would be better
  2. any advice guys?
  3. is it worth 1500 for the asus g73 or 1100 for ASUS N53Jf-XE1
  4. Man don't get confuse, just get the sager which i mentioned above it has full HD1080p screen, GTX460M and processor customizable from i5 460M to i7 extreme high end and most important its under 1200$, so if u want to waste another 300$ just for popularity of ASUS then you can otherwise you should see price/performance ratio and durability which sager is definitely.
