It's unlikely that the system will be much quieter with an SSD, since hard drives don't have fans - they're passively cooled. However, the area around the hard drive compartment may feel a bit cooler.

Thanks NW and ziddy for your info and reviews.
I am putting the money together to put a G73 on order probably through Xoticpc.
A few of the other distributors are in California where I live and I can avoid sales tax through xoticpc and save a $100 or so.
I have a few questions for the floor:
Would you get the Blue Ray player or just the CD/DVD multi-drive?
Is not having eSata a drawback for those that use it?
Do you use RAID 0, RAID 1, or no RAID? If you use RAID 1 do you have any issues with the RAID controller going into verify if it detects something is wrong?
I probably would have a few more questions, but this is what I can think of right now.
NW are you a good/real typer or is it that bad? Missed keystrokes that you know you did? Say more.
I know you baby'd your G73. Never drove over 10mph and only to church on Sunday. Maybe you could get a better price with a little less history?
The more I think NW could you maybe get above retail for imediate delivery? There are people all over who just want and delivery dates are uncertain?
Last I heard, the last shipment was 230 units for the entire US. Going to take a while at that rate you think?
Thanks for the PM NW.
A question to the thread:
How bad is the keyboard lag? Is there any examples (video) of the lag that you know of?
I have a Belkin 8 port KVM switch that has intermittent lag and/or it repeats a key 10 times randomly.
If it is like that then the lag would be very annoying and I the lappy may make it out the window.
I feel like I am no longer alone. I am a one handed typer I have zero training. But I am pretty damn fast. I play guitar so I have coordination. And I had read briefly about just after I got.
But NW the way you typed the example is 100% what I suffer from. But since much of my typing is on say this forum not life or death. But it does get annoying.
So guys is this an Asus issue mostly? I have two other notebooks and never had this. I had a few others and never noticed this?
NW I will look into disabling (I mean updating? Or maybe disabling?) the touch pad drivers. I do not like the scrolling and disable the tap feature anyway. So will try I think. I hope it helps. Thanks for the tip!
