    Hi everyone, I'm not an owner of this laptop but am seriously considering it. Here's the thing, I just got a new desk (a hutch really) and I'm wondering what the height of this laptop is with the screen opened? The dimensions listed online only measure the closed laptop. Can one of ya'll take a measuring tape and measure from the tabletop surface to the peak of the open monitor? Greatly appreciated!

    im just approximating here heheyfred, but say the exhaust vent area is 2inch. The height of the screen id say is 9-10inchs, so around 11-12 inches (+) or (-) 1 inches.

    was just doing some headwork, probably mixed up a few numbers but its an approximation.

    One thing I've been curious about with a lot of the Asus G models is how far back the screen can open. I can't ever find a video that shows it. It looks like the chunk of plastic behind it would prevent it from going back any further than how it looks in heheyfred's picture above. Can you actually open it further than that?

    Thanks for the response m1_1x. Unfortunately the desk I'm dealing with has 11.25 inches of clearance so if this gear is pushing even 11.5 or 12 it's not going to work.

    I measured with a tape measure the other night for you.
    M1 1X hit it right on. It is just a hair or two under 12 inches

    I get an "Invalid Thread" response when I click the link for the G53-SX lounge, so I'm starting this. Just bought a G53SX-DH71 from PowerNotebooks.com and I'm super excited. Donald was really helpful with building it to my specs.
