    Here is a interesting read. I'm looking to get a new laptop and i'm not wanting to spend more than $1600 on it.
    I've been looking at them all day and the Asus G73JH seems to be the best that I can find. It has 3 versions, A1, A2, and A3 out but the A3 seems to only be Blu-Ray added on and it goes up by 100$.

    I'm looking for a beast that can handle heavy graphic usage.. Any recommendations?

    why are you looking at a laptop when you can get a powerful desktop that would kill it for the same price? Honestly :down: :down: :down: :down: :down:

    Because I have a life and I work with photoshop extensively outside my house. Also my desktop already rapes face.

    Hey, since you're desktop already rapes faces, you'd be a good person to ask. I'm looking to build a new desktop but want suggestions as for what to make or put in it. Josh, What do you have in yours? But, Those labtops took fine. I would save on not getting the blueray. It's not really necessary to have on a labtop. Use the $100 on something else. Like more memory or something.

    Look into Cyber Power or Alienware, Alienware overpriced, but it can change colors so it has to be cool....lol jk. Anyway, www.cyberpowerpc.com
    They got some cool shit, hope this helps.

    lol gumby it all depends on what you wanna spend to what you are gonna get out of the system. i wouldn't look at the 400 series cards but the next set after them if you are going high end to get something that would be amazing.

    My desktop is from Cyberpower and I love it, however I learned the hard way that they're based in CA and I had like $300 in tax when I bought my pc added on since we're the same state and they're stupid like that

    Cyberpower uses low quality parts. I got a pc from them and there was something wrong with it as soon as I got it. I would highly recommend shopping at newegg.com and just custom building one yourself. It turned out to be the cheapest way...and my computer is still top notch 2+ years later.
