The laptop comes with the latest operating system 64 bits Windows 7 home premium. The original laptop had more memory (8 Gb) and a Blu-ray disk combo reader but later this had been skimmed down as the price was reduced. Also there had been an adjustment in resolution; the original laptop had a very high resolution that is best suited for gaming purposes.

The previous gaming system that came from ASUS always had garish color schemes and flashing lights, but in this G73JH all those stuff is replaced by a matte black lid and The keyboard deck does not have glossy look anymore now it is replaced by a rubberized texture. The lid has an Asus logo and a Republic of Gamers emblem, and is silver in color. This laptop is quite large in comparison with other models and therefore not travels friendly the weight of the laptop is considerably good.

The three buttons that are at the top to the left of the keyboard each perform a different function, one of the buttons change the screen color modes, one of them activates twin turbo mode which activates instant over clocking, a feature which is not really needed for this model, one of then turn the blue light under the screen off.

To help those who are suffering with computer ergonomics, the keyboard of Asus G73JH-RBBX05 is elevated to 5 degrees. There are two big vents at the sides to help cool the components inside. The laptop is also very silent as there is a battery pack between the vents, even when the laptop runs for many hours, this setup help it to stay cool.

The Asus G73JH-RBBX05 has a very good sound system equipped with 2.1 speakers so that the sound will not distort when you increase it to the maximum level. However when you are playing a game or watching a movie it is best if you use a headset to enjoy the best sound effects.
