Hey Guys,

I am new to asus, but i was looking for a good gaming laptop so I ended up getting the G74SX. When I looked online at Best Buy, they showed to have BBK9 and NEW BBK11, so I came to the store thinking that I am getting a BBK9 since BBK11 is too new, but today I realized that I ended up getting a BBK8 which is not even on the website or anything. I purchased it last week on Monday, so a week ago.

I want to know, what is the difference between the BBK8, BBK9, and BBK11, should I just stick with the 8, so should I return it to Best Buy and get a BBK9 or BBK11. I know that it has been discussed in a different thread about 9 vs 11, but what about 8.... please let me know guys.

when i got my bbk8 on 2/3/2012 i research the diff between the bbk8/bbk9/bbk11 i ended up getting the bbk8 because there was no diff between the bbk8 and bbk9 they said bbk9 comes with a 1920x1080 but it doesn't its a regular 1600x900 not to mention that i got my bbk8 in special 900$ and the bbk9 starts at 1200 so unless you want the 3gb 560m for extreme gaming great purchase......but then again the specs some times are wrong maybe they do have the 1920x1080 if u don't mind returning it and trying out a bbk11 maybe you get lucky if not then u can always get the bbk8 or bbk9........its all up to you i guess the bbk9 and bbk8 have the 1tb at 7200rpm and the bbk11 1tb at 5400rpm.

I've had my BBK9 for 2 weeks now. It IS 1920x1080. I've had ZERO problems with it. I'm not sure what the difference is with the BBK11. I also just recently saw it advertised. It's available online, while the BBK9 is only available in stores. Hope that helps.

DON'T BUY IT.

The keyboard is going to make you SORRY!!!!!!!!!!

No num lock, 3 BIOS updates and it still misses keys, poor quality.

Get ANYTHING but an G74SX... YOU WILL REGRET IT.
