ASUS ROG G73jh Laptop (CES 2010)Written by John Thompson on January 6, 2010 · Filed under Tech
If you’re a power hungry user who needs to be at the top of your game wherever you are, you’ll love ASUS’s new gaming laptop, the ASUS ROG G73jh with its ridiculously powerful specs for a portable machine.
If you’re not bothered about sacrificing good looks for a powerful processor, you’re looking at a Core i7 processor; up to 8GB of DDR3 RAM; HD Audio; a whopping 1TB of hard drive space and DX11 graphics provided by the ATI Radeon HD 5870 which gives you 1GB GDDR5 memory. More visibly, your money will get you a 17.3” display with a 1080p resolution for some serious gaming and watching films on the Blu-Ray drive that comes along for the ride!
If you happen to be in the mood for video conferencing on your travels, you can do so with the 2 megapixel webcam with the help of the built in 802.11N Wi-Fi. It’s surprising to see USB 3.0 left out of the frame for this monster of a machine, but you can deal with USB 2.0 for a few more years can’t you? Not forgetting the power source, you’ll also find an 8 cell battery to keep all that resource hungry hardware going for an hour or two!
If you can’t resist this powerful machine, pricing is rumoured to start at around $1600, which isn’t bad for such a powerful portable machine. The ASUS ROG G73jh is expected to start shipping in around a month, so get your wishlist sorted, Christmas just arrived a few weeks late!
