Hi there.

Let me start off by saying I am dead-set on getting one of the Asus laptops as it does not seem anyone can meet the build quality or price for performance. I found one of the older models at bestbuy for what I think is a decent deal, $1200 for G73JH. The only thing I am soso about is the harddrive having a 5400rpm. I have a 7200 in my desktop and I felt(could be wrong) as if it was much faster then the 5400 I replaced.

Is the above laptop any decent? I don't do a TON of PC gaming. I play WoW, might play one of the new mmo's, Diablo III and Witcher 2. That is honestly about the extent of it. I don't need to run Crysis or anything insane.

Also, can I even upgrade the laptops? TigerDirect was tying to get me to spend $400.00 more on a laptop I could not really see much of a difference in. Had an Nvidia card as opposed to the ATI, and a 7200 rpm drive. Any help would be great.

Bueller? Bueller? I'm not looking for the cure for cancer people just opinions on one of the Asus configurations.

This one for the price is a better buy. The unit has 2 HDD bays, so you can add a faster HDD, or the Momentus XT Hybrid, or even a SSD for the best speed increase. You will need to get a HDD bracket tho.
