The Asus G73JH-RBBX05 is a robust performer that comes in a commendable configuration considering its price tag. You will find it more than useful as a gaming tool, coupled with other constraining chores. Some notable setbacks include its small -size keyboard and lack of discrete media controls. It does not offer a full range of port. The big power supply is also an issue. The product under review costs about $1200. It is a good aquisition for those looking for a potent desktop replacement at a pretty good price.
The machine is powered by intel core i7 720Q processor that speeds at 1.6 GHz. It works with a solid 6 GB 1333MHz DDR3 memory. The storage comes in the form of a single hard disk drive with a total capacity of 500 GB and a speed of 7200 rpm. Your shipment will come ensuite an intel HM55 chipset. You will also get 1 GB HD 5870 graphics from ATI Mobility Radeon. Asus provides the 64 -bit Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition as the operating system.
The machine comes with a backlit keyboard that is a tad compact relative to the system’s size. The numeric pad is pushed to the right -end. The keys produce a peculiar sound when typing. The keyboard surface is raised up by five degrees, and that improves its userbility. Unlike the keyboard, the trackpad, coupled with its button does not suffer from lack of space. It uses its huge size to provide good service. The Asus G73JH-RBBX05 comes in a glossy 17.3 inch LCD display with LED backlight. It offers a native 1600 by 900 pixel resolution, which is what you would expect of a basement -end desktop replacement.
