The Asus N73JQ is a high-end, 17.3" entertainment and gaming laptop to be released in August or September 2010. It is available with one of three quad-core, Turbo Boost-enabled Intel Core i7 CPUs, and between 4 and 12GB of RAM, enabling exceptional mobile performance. The N73JQ is available with DVD read/write, Blu-ray read/DVD combo, and Blu-ray read/write drives, while an HDMI port allows HD video to be output to larger displays. 1GB Nvidia GeForce GT 425M GPU ensures solid gaming performance. Asus is releasing the N73JQ alongside the 15.6" N53JQ and 18.4" NX90JQ, which feature similar hardware options, as well as standard SonicMaster and Bang & Olufsen ICEpower technologies, aiming to provide a superior notebook audio experience. Bluetooth is standard, as is USB 3.0 connectivity, which multiplies USB 2.0 bandwidth by a factor of more than six. The laptop is equipped with two hard drive bays, and is available with up to 512GB of solid-state storage.
