    I use an Dell XPS M1710 at the moment which has served me well for the past 3 years but now it's time to upgrade. Truth be told though I can't find a lot to like in the styling of the G73. I think I will wait to see some reviews of the new Alienware M17x with dual 5870's that's apparently coming out soon before making up my mind.

    I quite like the G73 in grey, it looks a bit like the Lamborghini Reventón.

    The thin 13.3in on the last-page looks right up my street (I think it was the U35Jc)

    All this inside information+previews from you being based in Taiwan is quite handy ;)

    The design of that gaming laptop is gorgeous, I love the angular casing.

    It's interesting to see some snippets of new hardware straight out of Taiwan, exiling Bindi seems to be paying off! ;)

    Just a typo, "Hands-on with the Asus ULC30 and U35Jc" You call it a ULC30 even though it's called UL30 everywhere else in the article. Third page btw.

    I have a UL30A and it has an SU2300 (dual 1.2GHz, 1MB cache). An i3 version would be amazing!

    Asus is doing great with notebooks lastly, the quality and the specs. The cooling system used on the G73 its amazing!

    There is an 404 error on 1018p-6.jpg

    This gaming monster looks great, I'd actually prefer it in gray than black. And half as small, with good battery life ;) (yeah, I'm not into DTRs)

    Asus makes nice laptops, it's a shame they look like crap as soon as you touch them - who the f*ck came up with the idea of shiny laptops?!

    uh oh, typo in very first paragraph!!!

    Good to see an article covering a spectrum of different laptops. I'd kill for a small CULV 10" high res laptop. This netbook is 1366x768 which is still too low for my liking!

    This may be controversial but bring on the next iteration of the Sony P... :)

    I own the g73, it's almost as powerful as my desktop, and easy on the eyes, but the keyboard needs some improvement on the hardware and software side of things, the feel too clacky, key spacing i could get by with but could be much better and there is no way to map the multimedia keys to a specific media player, default is windows media center, go figure.
