Asus G73J is one of the best laptop for gamers and has impressed us from the first moment we saw it. A black monster with a super configuration. The model is not very new but also not very old. There is a previous version which has an AMD Radeon HD5870 graphic card but the one we tested is equipped with Nvidia GTX460 graphic card. The design is inspired from the structure of a hunting jet. You can easy notice if from other laptops because of the design. It seems a bit thicker than an Alienware laptop but has a series of elements which are better.
First, the keyboard has a simple, elegant and complete layout and also has the numeric part on the right. For a high visibility in night condition these are illuminated from beneath with a discrete white light. Tilting the keyboard to the front is offering a level of comfort, the hands position being advantaged by this type of construction.
The touchpad is another construction element to which few manufacturers are offering the right attention. It has generous sizes and it is positioned almost on the center. The surface is very fine and sensitive and the buttons are easy to press. We can say that the touchpad is one of the greatest today.
The pad is covered with a rubber material which stops the hands from sweating and also gives a good grip which is essential for a passionate gamer. The case is from a plastic material but it has magnesium in order to lower its weight and obtain a more solid construction.
The graphic card is very good. Under the case of this notebook is a more special model of the GTX460 chip which has 1.5 GB of graphic memory. The processor is Core i7 740QM and the quantity of RAM DDR3 memory is 12 GB. Knowing that there is no game optimized to use that much RAM memory, we think that it was built for both gaming and graphic works.
The cooling system is designed in a way in which it does not affect the user and it manages to be very silent. In order to do this they used generous sized radiators and also bigger ventilators.
