    Also comes with waiting for one it seems :)

    That's the best drug ever, it gets you hooked before trying it!

    Just a tip for all the students out there...

    Remember you can buy Windows 7 pro (or any Windows product) at a discounted price from your institution... just log on to your account and search for it.

    Win 7 pro UPGRADE for $60 Downloaded.

    Someone made a mistake with the referral URL so its displaying the Amazon Mobile web interface. Try a link like this instead...

    Amazon.com: ASUS G53JW-3DE Republic of Gamers 3D 15.6-Inch Gaming Laptop - Black: Computer & Accessories: Reviews, Prices & more

    That should take you directly to the detail page appropriate for whatever device you are on. (And without any associated referrals)

    msdnaa -> Microsoft will give out free copies to students in some qualified programs.


    On the other hand, some friend of my told me that HP laptops are the best and tried to get me to buy one of those HP Envy. I told him this g53 will literally wipe the floor with any laptop HP throws at it and he is still not convinced.

    Ahh! I shall see if I qualify then!

    Thanks!

    Edit: Yeah I might not be qualified... I'm not studying IT. But I contact our department hoping to get it anyway. I got a 3.8 avg (Edit2: Actually 3.7 :( )I should be entitled to something :)

    Not sure if you can ask though. Usually your program tells you that you are eligible for download because it is a collaboration between Microsoft and the said institution. And if the school takes the offer, then every student in that program will have to sign a ToA. Usually, Microsoft only offers this to IT students, but I think you can get the benefit if you apply to at least 1 computer class course - check with your university to see if they have MSDNAA.

    Usually, the ToA says something like this:
    The software is granted to you for educational use... then if you graduate then it becomes a life-time license (legit CD-key). etc etc.

    For me, I got windows xp, vista, 7, and pretty much every single line of Microsoft products they have in store - 1 copy each.

    To bad, there is no Adobe software, otherwise I get all the money back from my tuition by getting free Adobe stuff.



    So when will the second shipment of g53 be available in the US?

    My uni got it... but we were never told about this... so I doubt I'll be eligible. I got the 30$ pre-order upgrade when it was offered by MS.

    I can save all the headache (and 60$) by giving my self another headache by re-installing home back to my G50 and use its Pro upgrade on my G53...

    The second shipment should be here next week (what I hear from Ken at Gentech)
