Default Which asus should I get from bestbuy G60 or G73

Ok so Im in the market for a new gaming laptop. I heard that the asus laptops are really great. So I have two picked out the G60 for 899 and the g73 for 1199.00. I do some media , search the web I do play some current games like world of warcraft. I just dont want to overheat and deal with that. So if anyone has any opinions from these laptops from bestbuy please let me hear them.


Thanks

Don't buy from Best Buy. Use Newegg.

WoW is fine, but any other graphic intense games are going to suck in any mid-range laptop. Heat is the #1 concern.

Show us a link of what laptops you are looking at. A broad model will not tell us much.

The G73 is well worth the extra cash in the long run. It has one of the most powerful single GPU based video setups in a laptop.

The i7-720QM is ranked 16th on the processor guide, while the i5-430M is 37th.
