I am another owner of the G73JH, mine is the model A2 which I received from XCaliberPC. I ordered on February 5th and had it overnight shipped, arrived on the 6th.
On NotebookReview, Quagmire was the first to receive his, then it was 0100 and then it was I.
This did come with free shipping so if I did not pay for overnight, I would have paid 1550.
I see the only impression here is from NW who is not the typical laptop user. Here is one more tame than his.
