Gaming Laptop ≤ 1300AUD (ASUS Decision) Tags: Laptops Asus Last response: January 30, 2012 8:21 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share zherne January 30, 2012 7:59:32 AM Hey guys, I'm looking for gaming laptop for up to 1300 AUD. I've found a few ASUS laptops that I'm interested in but I'd like to get your opinion first! N53SV comes with a 2 years warranty while G53sw is Manufacturer refurbished and doesn't say about the warranty. Both laptops are on an online sale.
