I am inclined to buy this laptop:

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. I just need some feedback from this forum. Thanks.

Does anyone know if this model will get too hot or just somewhat hot? And thanks for all your inputs. However, I cannot find a review for this exact model. Has anyone found it? :bounce:

You may not find a review on the actual X5 model.
Most of the model differences were minor. Different HDD setups, Blu-Ray driver included or not, etc.
A1 had 2x 500GB HDD and Blu-Ray drive. A2 2x 500GB HDD. X1 500GB HD, X2 500GB and Blu-Ray drive. X2 2x 320GB HDD.
