I also think gaming on a laptop is kinda dumb. I mean its ok if you have a powerful laptop and game on it from time to time but buying a laptop FOR gaming is just a BAD idea. For the same price you can make a desktop that does 2-4 times the lappy's power.

Gaming on laptops is important for people that don't have desktop ability. I bought a high end Dell (@#@$#!%#) when I was being deployed for almost a year with the military. There are a lot of people out there like this. Having an option, I never would have gotten a laptop for it but there was no options.

Well, at that price, I don't see it as being bad... You see high end lappys from places like dell and others that cost over a grand more for what Asus is giving... A laptop is a very hard thing to put together to have the same stuff as what a computer would.... But, people can do like I did.. I grabbed a lappy right out of school... Thought I was going to work with my father... I hooked it right up to my tv, got the same res, and went wireless... It's a good thing, but its a coster...
Trip, you ever going to try and get a new one!?

For under 2k it's not bad. The 9700 isn't a bad gpu for the resolution.

See my post again above. THAT 9700 is MISLEADING ADVERTISING! The 9500 series all the way up to the 9700GT is only like a 8600GT that is slightly OCed by each "model up". The only DIFFERENT ones start at 9700 *GTS*.

EDIT: Replaced false with misleading.

Ok so what if its a 9500 GT oc'ed, It's Nividia's branding method. What does it matter weather this gaming laptop is sold with a 9500 GT or a 9700 GT? Either will work fine for the resolution. No one except Black Panther(with dual 8800GTX) really expects to play current games and get decent-good fps(* especially for under $2k).

It's alot harder to build a custom gaming laptop, but it can be done. So I guess those with the know how could find this a bit bland.
