The one that was posted here before was $962.xx for a G74SX-DH72. I could probably do without an SSD for now but I dont know about getting one without blu ray. I see some other G74s but they're more expensive and dont have the blu or ssd.

That was 8 days ago price were $962.33 used according to CamelCamelCamel.com.

FWIW, I just added an SSD to my Asus G72GX and I can't recommend the upgrade enough. With the SSD, from a cold power off it takes about 8 seconds to turn on and boot to my Windows 7 Pro desktop. It's unreal. With my stock 7200 RPM drive (which is now my secondary drive in it) the thing would take 30-60 seconds to boot to desktop.

Well great now I need that too. Thanks I think. I'm just impatient and don't want to wait but I guess I'll try and hold out for a good deal before buying anything.

I really dont know shit about computers when it comes to hardware but if I were to buy a G74 or G75 without an SSD could I add one to use as a primary drive and use the 7200rpm as a back up? Or would I have to actually remove the 7200RPM drive to add in the SSD?

ROFL, no problem :P

It really depends upon the configuration of the laptop. Asus is usually pretty good about including an extra hard drive bay in their gaming series laptops (my G72GX had an extra bay so I just moved the stock 7200 to the second bay and put the new SSD in the primary bay) since they have the room thanks to the massive screen size anyway. If you get something more compact then it likely will NOT have an extra HD bay.

Installing a new HD is very easy - it takes less than 5 minutes and only requires enough knowledge to work a phillips screwdriver. heh.

The one downside with Asus, is if they have an extra HD bay slot, often times the laptop will not come with the hard drive caddy that you need to actually hold the drive in place (its a little metal shell that the HD screws into which then screws into the laptop itself - you'll see one on your primary drive when you open it up). Asus sells these on its website, but they run about $30 after shipping. So I would check that out in your laptop before ordering so you can do it all at once. I was shocked that mine didn't come with the second hard drive caddy.

Yeah that's pretty lame. Was just looking at SSDs and they're a little cheaper than I thought anyway so I may just do that then. Thanks for the info.

That's awesome! I didn't even know you could get a hard drive that low. I'd be happy to find a 250 GB external hard drive for $5.

I've only been looking for video games that low.

Any thoughts on how much better than 11? Looks like the online pass locks out the dynasty mode, too.

Hmmmm.... decisions, decisions.

So is there more Move integration than in MLB 11? I have 11 and love the Home Run Derby but I think that's all you can do with the Move in that one.

Yes, you can use the move in any mode now I believe. I really want to use the move in RTTS as that's 99% of what I play.

I can let you know Monday. Within the past week I bought a $162ish Vita. Mine said 'imperfections on the side, backs, front, and on the screen', and I'm hoping it's nothing too harsh. I don't mind about the actual body because I'm buying a casing to cover it but the screen is the worst offender. Worst case scenario you return it to Amazon if it's not up to your expectations.

i was thinking the same thing. i'm just a little cheesed i didn't get one of the feb's last week when they were only 184 :oops:

$22 less is ok, but i could have gotten the extras that came with it. you win some you lose some. i'll keep my eyes peeled to see if anything else good pops up today, if not i'll just hang on to it.

There's a thin line between a CAG and a smart buyer :p
I think the ''Like New'' Vitas are only $20 more expensive, can't go wrong with that.

i've read a bunch of people say that they got their "good" in "like new" condition. i think it's worth a flyer.
