    That's basically what I got except my screen is 14" and the hdd is 5400rpm for $800

    It's an Asus NV81 I think [​IMG]

    I got on Newegg and it works great with movies and especially games (I threw every game I wanted to play on max and it works great, even Crysis)

    also there's no guarantee of the price since there are 4 days left on the auction. To be honest, I think it's best to avoid ebay as far as major purchases go, especially considering the lack of detail. If you're really invested in making this ebay purchase, then I suggest you look through the sellers ratings and contact one of the other buyers who purchased a similar Asus laptop and contact them for additional feedback before making the decision.

    Agree with Sage, never buy hardware components on ebay ^^
    Too many fakes on it [​IMG]

    Hey guys,

    Just an update, I decided to buy the ASUS-G73JH-A2. I got it for $1090(new) on ebay but I never got it yet, we'll see how it goes.

    Thanks to everyone that helped!

    That laptop is completely overkill for movie watching but it will play most current PC games maxed out at a decent fps. For movie watching, you could get a capable laptop for $300
