Shows up in pre-order
In addition to the Mobility HD 5730 equipped X77, Asus is preparing yet another 17-inch gaming notebook that will proudly carry the Republic of Gamers logo, the G73JH. The new notebook has already showed its face in pre-order, and will feature Intel's Core i7 CPU paired up with the upcoming Mobility Radeon HD 5870 card that should also be announced at CES 2010 show.
The 17.3-inch G73JH weighs 3.85kg which makes it quite heavy for our taste but with such power under the lid, this one was never designed for ultimate mobility. The 17.3-inch has a 1920x1080 resolution which will be a piece of cake for the Core i7 (720QM, 820QM or 920XM) CPU and DirectX 11 capable Mobility Radeon HD 5870 graphics card with 1GB of video memory.
The rest of the features include up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, two SSD/HDD slots, four Altec Lansing speakers and almost anything that you can think of and that you would expect from a notebook which price starts at US $1,645. It is shipped with Windows 7 Home Premium OS and 8-cell battery.
