Default Asus Announces ROG G73jh Gaming Laptop with Core i7 and 5870

Advertisement



"No need to lug that big desktop around to the next LAN party. Asus has outed their new Republic of Gamers (ROG) laptop at a CES press event. The ROG G73hj is packing the sort of hardware that puts to shame many desktop gaming PCs; other laptops need not apply. The G73hj runs a Core i7-720QM CPU, and is configurable with up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM and 1TB of HDD space.

No gaming laptop would be complete without discreet graphics, and the G73hj is no exception. This little beast will come with the Radeon HD 5870 for DX11 support. This marvelous video card will push the pixels around on a 17.3-inch LCD with a resolution of 1920x1080. There are also all the usual goodies like Wi-Fi 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, webcam, and a Blu-Ray/DVD drive. No word on pricing or release date yet, but maybe you should start saving those pennies."

Personally, I would prefer a desktop for gaming, it would also be more cost effective, but I guess if you're an on the go gamer, spending what I am estimating is going to be $2500ish would be worth it.....? This is still a sexy power house of a laptop.

That's just going to cost a lot of money.
I personally prefer a desktop as well, because of the upgrading.
Otherwise, laptops are great.

it would be amazing for people who travel, but pretty much suck for anyone else, a waste of money (unless you travel)
