View Full Version : New Generation ROG Laptop Design?

So i don't know if its just me, but Asus G73/G53 series were by far the sexiest laptops ever made. All these newer designs asus is coming up with are redundant and not as "beautiful". I did see the newest model with red heatsink on the back...and its just looks like a toy. Asus should've just stuck to g73 model version and improved it little by little each year... (mouse-pad glitching), maybe 16 megapixel 4k samsung webcam :D, maybe reduce weight somehow...maybe extend rear heatsink across the whole back?? somehow and re-position battery into that long bar on top of heat sinks and battery behind the screen which is hollow, without changing the whole concept of design too much. I mean I AM IN LOVE WITH DAT ASS g73 has. Every time i take it out with me i get good comments on it. I even dreamed couple of nights ago just looking at g73 ass lol...it was a little different tho, looked more like lambo's front. Asus could also redesign the inside of laptop (keyboard/mousepad area) the rubber is kind of hard to clean and it does get dirty and scratchy a lot...so a new material would be great. I also love that illuminat triangle webcam lel. Anyways if many people feel like i do, then maybe asus will go back to origianl g73 design and see what they can do. I look forward to reading your comments guys!

I'm not that huge of a fan of the G73 design for a couple of reasons: the screen doesn't tilt back far enough for me. It was something I worried about before I bought it, and has proved troublesome since. Another BIG drawback is the charger receptacle/jack. It's a VERY easily broken fixture, and VERY difficult to fix. Another thing is the placement of the CMOS battery. It will be a HUGE job to replace it. This also relates to the 4th memory card slot, which is very difficult to access. Another thing is fan filters (or lack thereof.) I believe some of the newer G series have them, but I don't know if they still have them. Nevertheless, I have 2 G73 (an SW and a JH) So their virtues do outweigh their faults. And their virtue of packing SO MUCH power with SUCH great airflow, is definitely one of them.

well that's why i said they can improve on the design without changing the look too much. Screen tilting doesn't look like its hard to fix, memory access could probably be fixed by making the cover larger. None of these faults are impossible to fix if ROG department was focused just on g73 instead of designing a whole new laptop. Not many people use diskdrive anymore, so it can be replaced for so many things, or the insides could be rearranged. My main point was that the external look of asus G73 is really attractive/heavy duty looking compared to the newer generations, so it would be great if asus could addressed most if not all the flaws u listed plus other, and re engineer the internal structure of the laptop.
