As long as you can accept repairs or failure earlier than a common laptop, these are fine.
I'm currently looking for a new 17.3-inch laptop for Gaming especially and of course web surfing and collage projects.
I've found these ones on ebay and I'm wondering which one is better the ASUS G73JH-BST or the HP Pavilion dv7t ??
