I got an new asus G53SX-BS71-CBIL from bestbuy Vancouver Canada last june28 and this is my first gaming laptop. As stated in the title my best screen resolution is 1366x768 but according to another website forum, some people said that I could have been ripped of by the seller since he said his statement "all asus g series laptops came with 1600 x 900 screens (generally the best buy versions) or 1920 x 1080 screens. I dont know how the OP could have a 720p screen unless somehow the screen got swapped out. I have owned several asus G series laptops and i can assure you... no g series has come with a 720p screen stock unless it came out before the g51. either the ops gpu isnt detecting resolutions correctly or he got ripped off screen wise"

another user said "The 768p sounds weird indeed.
Wonder why tho, he should have either 900p or 1080p.
Unless its the driver, or maybe the precedent owner swapped the screen.
That gpu is better on low res, that's for sure, it's not a bad thing at all, but still it's strange."

Was I cheated or ripped of by the seller? My dad bought this for me and he doesnt know much about these gaming laptops as well but the guy who sold this said it was new, Im starting to have doubts whether somethings were swapped in this laptop.

Not sure if this is your laptop but after doing some goggle i came upon this its the display specs Display, 15.6" 16:9 HD (1366x768)/HD 3D (1366x768 120Hz) So im guessing the person was talking about this bit lol

So were you ripped off?....NOPE!

It's honestly not a bad resolution for a gaming machine. The smaller resolution means that you will get a better framerate at native resolution. And with a smaller screen like that you likely won't miss the extra pixels. Where you'll notice the difference is with desktop productivity (office, web browsing, etc) and if you can deal with that then everything else should actually be better.

You need to look at the reseller hits in that list like http://www.nxsource.com/category/?minorcatid=57&pricerangeid=1012&vendorid=25

ASUS G53SX-BS71-CBIL,Black,15.6 HD (1366 768),Intel Core i7-2670QM (2.2GHz),16GB DDR (G53SX-BS71-CBIL)

But like @xeromist says, you may not find 1366x768 native resolution to be a bad thing... Alternatively, you could probably return it to your retailer and get the more expensive system with HD display. You may have burned that bridge if you accused them of ripping you off - still, they may be happy to accept additional money from you...

Correct. There were two different resolutions offered on the g53 and 1366 was one of them. The higher 1600 resolution was the g73, IIRC.
