  1. Ok thank you dudewitbow. I am not sure what to look for in the graphics area. I know desktop but not sure of laptops.
  2. Anyone else have any input?
  3. Still looking for more input please.
  4. @junky77, This is for my GF who is getting into gaming again. I just want her to have a good deal. Should I wait for a better coupon code? So I can upgrade to a little bit better. I would be willing to do 800$ if that means I can come up with a good Asus gaming laptop. I know quite a few people who have them and enjoy them.

    yes, you should wait.

    Also, there are refurbished deals from time to time. For example, the 17r se:

    now it is out of stock, but you should check every 12 hours or even more and get this deal, which is an excellent one.

    How about a used Asus G73JH? Its local and seems to be in good condition for 800 obo.
