Asus G74SX-XR1 17.3" LED Notebook - Intel Core i7 i7-2630QM Quad-core


Stealth and Strength

Like its predecessor, the G74SX design was inspired by sharp polygonal shapes, but this time inspiration came from the US Navy's Sea Shadow stealth ship and modern day aircraft carriers. Like the stealth ship, opponents will never know what hit 'em, and like an aircraft carrier, the G74 has the firepower to shock and awe the competition.

Blow It Out the Rear

The harder you work, the more heat you generate. A computer is no different, and with the amount of power in the G74SX, some serious cooling is needed. A unique venting design pulls air from underneath the notebook, cooling the system down, then vents it through the rear, keeping hot air away from the user and reducing ambient noise for prolonged gaming.

  • Awesome laptop!

    I wanted a top of the line gaming machine in a laptop. Fastest processor. More than enough memory with 12 GB! But the most awesome factor is the graphics card. The video card came with 3 GB of dedicated ram which gave rapid response. The audio power rocks! Altec Lansing speakers pumped it out. The only down side of this laptop was weight, This laptop is almost perfect. Won't need a new laptop in quite awhile.
