    hey guys, just got this laptop as well! I do casual gaming and a lot of internet surfing and work. So this fit the bill perfectly. Can someone fix a few of my concerns.

    1. I have an issue with the laptop being too bright at night, it doesn't quite get as dim as I'd like to as my wife's macbook and I end up wearing my sunglasses in the dark just to use this laptop. (seriously). Is there any way to dim it further?

    2. I purchased a 90 degree plug from Amazon for about 9$ and the connector is already faulty. Is there one that Asus manufactures? Also, can someone please explain WHY they didn't have the plug on the left hand side...

    3. Does un-installing the power4gear have any downfall in performance? Or can I refer to the battery options located in the bottom right hand corner?

    thanks!

    hey thanks for starting this thread.
    was starting to wonder if anyone was buying this laptop

    Hi I was wondering on the g53sx have they improved the keyboard over the g53sw-a1? All the reviews I saw of the g53sw-a1 said the keyboard was cramped, unresponsive and the arrow keys were useless. Thanks!

    i have the g53sx 3D version (exact same model as this >>Asus G53Sx Unboxing Republic Of Gammers - YouTube)

    yes the KB is same as the sw. ive been using my sx for about 2 months now and the KB seems very responsive to me, havent experienced any unresponsiveness. the KB flex is still there but it doesnt bother me.
