I suppose a 3D screen version is a bit over the top? Review Asus G53JW 3D Gaming Notebook
Thanks for the fast reply! For my desktop I have an i7-930 and 6GB ram. I agree with you, ASUS seems the better choice, just need to decide on which model. I've lusted after the G53JW 3D but it's more than I want to spend for just the novelty of the 3d since I don't want this solely for gaming - HOWEVER - since you brought it up - I also have a Benq 3D capable projector that I would probably want to experiment with. To add to the mix, Newegg also has the G73JW-A1 with 8GB ram, larger screen, same weight, 1TB disk space, and bluray drive for $1599 after rebate, which might be the better way to go, though just a bit over my budget. What do you think?
