ASUS Laptop Give Gamers Growl

All-new from ASUS the G73 ‘Stealth-Fighter‘ is being billed the ultimate gamer’s laptop with a militaristic design that’s inspired by the F-117 Nighthawk.

This isn’t just some pretty boy’s toy – the G73 promises to deliver bang for your bucks. Inside there’s an Intel Core i7 processor, ATI Radeon HD5870 graphics and up to 16GB of DDR3 memory.

After the break, all the specs and product details and an in-depth chat with ASUS product designers Peter Clark and John Van Damme talk about the inspiration behind the new machine.

This means the G73 delivers blistering frame rates with ultra-realistic in-game sound effects and perfect positional audio.

You also get one-click, on-the-fly overclocking capabilities, meaning you can push the hardware to the very limit.

The striking angular design aims to make your experience of using the computer better: the palm rest is exceptionally thin, just like a desktop keyboard, while the keyboard plane is inclined 5 degrees, making it more comfy to use.

You’ll be able to get your hands on one of these monsters in April for £1,899 (including VAT) in the UK. (US price follows).
