Question

Asus Laptops With New Processor And Video Card?

by Rich00559 / June 4, 2012 9:09 AM PDT

I've been a console gaming man all my life and I just starting using my PC more because the games are often cheaper and portable. I was looking to get an Asus G74SX-DH71 (seen here: http://www.amazon.com/ASUS-G74SX-DH71-17-3-Inch-Gaming-Laptop/dp/tech-data/B005PAJI4Y/ref=de_a_smtd) and a best buy employee advised me not to bother because Asus was coming out with a similar laptop with a faster processor and better video card. Does anyone know anything about this, or can tell me when it's coming out or where I should be looking to keep myself updated? I'm trying to track the release but I don't even know what the model is supposed to called when it is released so I don't even know where I should be looking.

Asus G75VW

The laptop they are talking about is the Asus G75VW. There was information released on the Asus Republic of Gamers webpage and it included a Nvidia 660m/670m video card with a 2.3ghz i7 Processor that can turbo boost to 3.3ghz. It quite and upgrade and is approximately the same price. I believe some seem to be available now, but most websites I've looked at are Pre-Order only and should be released towards the end of the month.

ASUS has the worst warranty
by albertru / June 21, 2012 6:36 AM PDT

My advice is to find a gaming laptop with a usable warranty. My ASUS G74 died in the first 2 months. After 2 servicings, it still doesn't work. ASUS has a 0% replacement policy, so if something goes wrong, you're stuck.
