Title says it all. I purchased one from Worst Buy yesterday but unfortunately at only 90w it doesn't have enough output to charge the battery with the laptop powered
on. Can anyone recommend a decent 3rd party replacement that puts out 150w?

If you're located in the U.S.and don't mind using a 180w adapter used by some other ASUS notebook models (like the G752VL among others), the U.S. ASUS Store is selling it which is using the same plug size as the G74 and has the same 19v output.

This 180w AC adapter should also be available from other places if you want to shop around or see what other people suggest.

Thanks Al, I didn't realize the newer used the same size. I'd rather not spend ~$80 on a 5 year old laptop that has been delegated to double back up duty, especially since that's
about 1/3 of it's current value. However if no other reasonable solution is found then the official adapter will definitely be the solution.
