If I was going to spend that kind of money I would want it NEW with at least a one year warranty. It makes since then to spend the extra 100 dollars for that. The refurbished has only a 90 day warranty and you take a chance on any number of hidden issues that could pop up in the first year.
I vote for the NEW one for sure.

Yes I would agree it is better. The price difference is minimal when you consider the video chipset itself. The difference is the accessories you are getting with the Asus.

I have an Asus G73 that I bought new last October. It has the i7 720QM and a Radeon HD 5870. For gaming, if you run games that are more graphics intensive, this thing is a beast with the 5870. Everything I have tried on it runs like silk on max settings. If you run games that are more CPU intensive like FSX, which is what I spend most of my time doing, I find it a bit lacking but then my 720QM is only rated at 1.6ghz. The turbo mode bumps it up quite a bit to something like 2.8ghz but it doesn't seem to make much difference. I have heard that the the turbo mode does increase the CPU speed but it basicaly changes it from a moderate speed quad core to a fairly fast single core. I don't know how true that is but from what I see on my machine it does make sense. All that being said, this is a very cool looking machine and has a great display. It's big; at the time I bought mine, Slappa made the only bag big enough to hold the thing. Mine is whisper quiet and has never had any overheating issues although the power supply (which is also quite large) can get pretty warm with intense gaming. I also run mine on a cool pad on my desk at home. The buttons on the track pad are a bit stiff. Over all I am pretty happy with it because it's way better than my old XPS 710 desktop, but it's still not what I want for gaming so the desktop is about to be upgraded or replaced and the G73 will be my work/road trip machine.
