When you check on most websites the system is advertised with a firewire port. It doesn't have one. I'm holding the reseller responsible since when I called Asus they told me straight out different resellers order with different options or configurations. So I called brought it to the resellers attention and they are checking into what they can offer me component with software or any possible plug in that will give me the firewire option when I need it. It's really important that what is specified by the resellers as options that come with their version of the G73-JH-A1 comes as represented. I haven't had the chance to play any of the newer games on it yet but I really love this notebook. It's a very powerful piece of equipment more so the my desktop now that I thought was pretty good this G73 A1 version blows it away. It doesn't come with any users manual which I hate and there's none to download of their website either. I would think for the money spent whereas this is by far the best ever notebook for the bucks it should come with a users manual being it's also the most upgradable note with lot's of options to go up to 16 mgb of ram although the 4th dim slot is under the motherboard.
Anyone having received the A1 please keep in touch with me on your findings and was to optimize although the factory has done an exceptional job as is comes out of the box. MY Toshiba Qosimo is officially in repair now for over 3 months should I sue them? My warrantee is up in 2011 and they've held it not having the parts to repair for now over the 3 month period. It's obviously the main reason I bought this new G73 besides the fact I love high tech toys. Need opinions on whether or not I should spent 1grand to sue Toshiba in small claims and try to get back my 2+ grand I paid for their system a year or so ago. I'm not sure if I should do it on principle alone or not. Need lot's of opinions being it had 3 major breakdowns within a 3 month period Jan. 18th and it's still there in their depot. Or since I have the G73 now, do I just eat Toshiba's horrific experience and never buy anything made by Toshiba??? BTW they have an absolute no replacement policy unless it's within the first week or so. Help!
