What is the difference between these two laptops?

Asked by hungerforpizza (247 points ) November 28th, 2010

So i’m buying a desktop replacement laptop and I have narrowed it down to these two. I know the second option is a little fancier, but how much so?

Asus G73Jh

Asus G73Jw

It looks like the more expensive one has a slightly faster i7 processor and a different video card.

Very little. Both are available with the same range of CPUs and most of the other specs are practically identical.

The differences I’ve noticed are:
– The Jw is available with a Blu-ray burner; the Jh is not
– The Jw has more video RAM; 1.5GB vs 1GB for the Jh
– The Jw has an nVidia GPU while the Jh has an ATI. However, both are very close in performance, so that isn’t really a major difference.
– The Jh has 4 USB ports and no RJ-45 Ethernet jack while the Jw has only 3 USB ports but can be hardwired to a router as it does have an RJ-45 jack
– The Jw has superior sound along with a built-in subwoofer
