The Asus G73SW is an entertainment / gaming laptop released in 2010. Unlike other models in the series (e.g., the N53SN, N53Jf, etc.), the G73SW doesn’t use Bang and Olufsen speakers. Instead it relies on standard integrated speakers coupled with an integrated subwoofer, EAX Advanced HD, and THX TruStudio. This gives the G73SW improved audio processing capabilities, which translates to better sound for videos and games. Also included is an Intel Core CPU (either i5 or i7), up to 16GB RAM, and a high-end laptop graphics card that supports DirectX 11 and OpenGL 4.0, and features 192 shader cores. Combined, these components allow the Asus G73SW to easily process 3D video games in their natural graphic settings. Plus, unlike other models, the G73SW supports two hard drives, meaning more space to store songs, videos, and games.
