Asus sucks! I got the g71gx(bestbuy) about a year ago and wish I hadn't bought it. Screen flickering problem, speaker problem.

I own the Asus and can tell you it is a nightmare. Do not buy an Asus. Customer service stinks. I have been without my computer for 4 months with same problems everytime that they send it back. They won't replace it. Won't do anything but say a Technician needs to look at it. Bad experience. The Toshiba, my son has has been great, no problems. Runs hot though so buy a fan.

At many Best Buy locations, employees will be glad to assist you in ordering a laptop from the website. At any Best Buy, employees will be more than glad to answer questions you might have about laptops that are sold online to the best of their ability.

G60VX-RBBX05 has more than what you need to play WoW. I you are a real gammer you might want to get G60VX-RBBX09, you can play any games you want with that computer.

Question

Is a 2.20 duo processor enough?

I've found what i think is the perfect laptop for what i need. i know it can do everything ill need it to do except im not sure whether the processor is enough to support gaming. It comes with a Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6600 (2.20GHz) and 2.2 seems a little small compared to most gaming laptops. is it big enough to play all games?

I think 2.2 isn't enough for future gaming. I recommed atleast a 2.5Ghz Core 2 Duo and a Nvidia Geforce GTX 260M. Good luck.

i7 only utilizes all the cores and hyperthreading when you have a game that is hogging up most of the resources that kick into effect, The corre 2 duo gives you higher clock speeds right out of the box, the i7 has a 1.6 ghz regular clock speed. The core 2 duo on the g72gx (if youre looking at the laptop machine) can be over clocked to 3ghz in the included software, apart from that what matters more than anything is the actual dedicated video card *not shared*

i7 is nice, and if I were to buy a machine now I might consider it. I think you will see more performance for less money with 4GB + MEM, and a good video card before you would see a gain in CPU upgrade.

I would recommend avoiding that model because it only has a 2.0 Quad core. Most games only support Core 2 Duo. With that Quad you'd be limiting yourself to 2 cores running only at 2Ghz. Go for the other G72 Core to Duo at 2.53Ghz. It's also 149.99 cheaper. Good luck.

I called the local store, they claim they have no idea.

Maybe I should revise the question: When will the regular Best Buy website sell the Asus G73 laptop and keep it in stock?
The Business side of the website lists it, but it does not appear to be in stock (Item: BB11085014)

We have no way of knowing when this item will be available in stores. You would have to consult with your local store and check availability.

As long as you have a wireless card in the new laptop you wont have to get a second line. Now do know that it will eat up some of the speed but will only be noticeable when he downloads music

answer 2
any dual core or hyper threaded processor will be perfect for what she needs and uses her laptop for hard drive space is really the factor as she will need it for music storage! memory 2gig or more would be enough

She can just use your current ISP and work off it wirelessly or use a ethernet connection!
