Asus G73SW Sandy Bridge Gaming Notebook Review
Source: Hot Hardware English
A gaming notebook needs to exhibit certain qualities if it's to be taken seriously as a desktop replacement. Because of the limited upgrade path, especially in the GPU department, a mobile gaming PC needs to start off with a solid set of components, and the 17-inch G73SW gets more right than it does wrong.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460M:

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.  


2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
