Thoughts on the ASUS G74SX
I got a chance to play with an ASUS G74SX from Newegg. What a big honking computer. It’s covered by some kind of matte black rubberized coating similar to what you’d find on a Thinkpad. It’s also pretty powerful and the internals are decently laid out.
Software-wise, there’s not too much crapware on it. It took only a few minutes to uninstall. I had an Ubuntu 10.04 live CD that’s I tried on it. Things seemed to work without any glaring issues.
Anyways, here are some pics of the exterior, the hard drive and RAM area, and the pre-installed crapware that the computer came with.
