Ignite True-to-life Battles

Latest Intel Core i7 processor for Extreme Performance
An Intel Core i7 processor paired with 8GB of DDR3 RAM powers the ROG G73Jh, and the graphics grunt comes courtesy of an ATI Radeon HD5870 chipset with 1GB DDR5 video RAM. A 1TB hard drive provides plenty of room for games galore and, of course, that glorious 17.3" display means you won't miss a moment of the on-screen action.

Asus G73JH - TZ008V


5-degree Matters
The ASUS G73Jh's wedge-shaped case tilts the keyboard to a 5-degree angle. This not only makes for a more comfortable typing than on most laptops that lie flat, but it also helps avoid undue stress on the wrists and hands.

Stylish Supremacy
Inspired by the F117 stealth bomber, the matte-finished G73 is an ergonomic feast of gamer-centric features - a huge keyboard that lights up for night time ops and can be turned off instantly for stealth, ample handrest real estate and rubberized surface areas for comfort during prolonged sessions.

Asus G73JH - TZ008V


Advanced Cooling System
The ASUS G73Jh has twin exhausts at the back of the case, behind the screen. This not only means that the waft of warm air is kept well out of earshot, but that you can sit with this notebook on your lap without impeding the air flow.

Asus G73JH - TZ008V


Massive is Good
Ample was the imperative when designing this notebook - down to dual SATA support and up to 1TB in storage, a far cry from the paltry hard drives of most notebooks. Nothing escapes real gamers equipped with enough install space!

Says reduced from £1899

Hi spec machine but is a hell of a lot of money for a laptop when you could get a machine for less then half the cost that would still do what most people use a laptop for at the same speed!

but is still more expensive than the ASUS's wesbite.

i would like to purchase one of these, might wait til a few weeks after it is officaly released, that should knock it down a few hundered quid i hope!

thats is not offical ASUS store, read the small print at the bottom, they are not endorsed or related to ASUSTek Computer Inc.

this laptops is way overpriced here, its costs $1700 in the states, thats about £1200, enough left over for me to buy a return flight over there for a short holiday and to buy laptop to bring it back.
#15
Idon't care if its £1799.00 or £1713.00 i just want one...

if ur fine with the usa-type keyboard then yeh go 4 it. if asus could release that product for £1200 in the uk market then they probably would have, its the uk government that gets in the way and starts taxing/vat etc
#17
Well afterall, this is rip-off britain.

Personally I'd go with an m17x, dual 5870s, better screen, better battery, better looking (even though it doesnt count for much), albeit with lower ram, but it depends on if you want to spend the extra £400 or so though.
#18
Just goes to show how we get ripped off here in england, am typing on one of these now had it 2 months, bought it online from canada, and with duties included and got it in 5 days UPS came to £1346 came complete with 2 years global warranty. Superb Games machine, blisteringly fast.

Same spec Alienware comes to over £2300

Better off buying the standard m17x with i7 and dual 5870s, then upgrade it yourself, much cheaper. Or better still have the standard 160gb hdd and buy a cheap 1TB external HDD.

Just priced the spec up to Asus levels with single 5870 on dell site and 1920 resolution and comes to £2200 with only one year service and only has 160 gb hard drive so not sure how that works out much cheaper to be honest???
with dual 5870s comes to £2454??????????????????????????
Considering buying Online from Canada came to £1346 with duty and delivery all in I think this is a way better option
also included with the 2 Year Global Warranty is 1 year accidental damage

Was just saying it was another option, but both are extremely overpriced in the UK.

By any chance do you know of the website that you got it from? Really need a laptop for uni.

Lol... probably cheaper, to fly to america, get one!

:w00t:

i too would like to know of this candian online website, share please
#25
You can get an alienware m17x in the states with similar spec to this with dual 5870s for like £400 more, yet over here the same build would cost at least £3k.

I might just wait for the M11X to get those shiny i7 processors.
#26
could be this candian site http://www.pccanada.com/viewitem.asp?id=25949

$1,648.94 candian dollors works out to be £1,084.60 british pounds

good points, also probably a usa type keyboard.

oh well i'll wait and see if the price drops after the first few weeks when released
#29
Asus do make some interesting laptops, and are easy to buy in America.

Sadly for UK buyers like myself, the availability is lacking, and normally comes at ridiculous premium - not to mention the tax added too.

Well youd basucally be looking at £1400 ish if importing from america, with no blu ray drive and a foreign keyboard.

For £350 more in the Uk you get the blu ray drive, worth about £70-80, and then a headset wortg like £50. Not sure where the other £200 has gone but oh well.

Like you say, it'll hopefully drop in price very quickly.

This is the name of the shop I bought my Asus laptop from in canada
Very happy with the whole process :thumbsup:
like i said earlier it came to £1346 in total with delivery and duties included (had to pay £111 in duty)
It does have an american keyboard but to be honest its no great hardship
also had to buy a uk mickey mouse connecting lead as it comes with the usa one cost me a whopping £2.99 from ebay
Showing as $1591 canadian dollars at the moment for the lappy without bluray
bluray model (A1) is $1680 cad

im looking for ASUS G73JH-TY063V (i5, 4gb ram, 640gb hdd, Ati HD5870), last seen in pixmania for £ 856 (out of stock ). any one know where can i find it? many thx
#33
just noticed fleebay r doing this for about £1,162.03 (£122.43 postage) for the bluray version, if customes add their makeup should come to around £1200 - £1300
#34
this is mentalness and annoying just over 1k on ebay so tempted, they also have the m11x for 900 which is 320 quid cheaper than the alienware site, damn to many decisions
