depends on your budget. if you are looking on the budget G73Sw, best buy is your best bet. but because of the recent intel sandybridge issue, i would hold off a month before purchasing the sandybridge G73. if you want a higher end model, we have the older G73Jw models http://www.asusrog.com/G73.html

G73JW-3DE would be the best option atm

i'd like to stay around the $1800 range, i'm not wanting 3d. is there that much of a difference between g73jw-??? and and others or is it worth waiting for g73sw?

The reason I would still recommend the 3DE isn't for the 3D as much as getting the 120Hz panel. It's actually an excellent screen panel, and non-glossy to boot, with excellent viewing angles. The higher refresh will allow you to work for longer time without undo stress on the eyes, and allows for higher fps rates with vsync enabled.

Is it possible to get a faster refresh rate screen for our g73jh models?

Sure, you can buy these panels if you can find a vendor with them.
