    If they discontinue it does that mean that no new vBIOS is coming out or any kind of fix?

    Is this even official? If so, I agree to a recall and hope they replace it with the JW.. we need some compensation for going through the trouble

    I confirm to you that the ASUS G73JH-A2 HAS been discontinued AND will be replaced by the ASUS G73JW 3D and non 3d versions with Nvidea GTX460M.
    Retailers and ASUS are waiting for Nvidea to officially lunch their new mobile fermi so that they can start the G73 and G53 pre-orders and shipments will start mid-late September.

    My question about GTX460M would be to know how hot would it run and how much power will it consume?

    The desktop Fermi cards run very hot and consume lot of power.

    Here I found some photo of a Clevo with Fermi GTX480M and the cooling solution look frightening. :eek:

    Oof. I've had mine for about a month and enjoyed the heck out of it. Don't like hearing this and possible loss of support. =/

    Maybe by 'discontinued' they mean that their particular site/store isn't receiving any more G73's, who knows why. It seems silly to me that they'd (asus itself) remove the JH from sales before the JW is even up for pre-orders. Also they just seem to be out of the cheaper A2's, maybe stores want to dump the more expensive (less popular?) A1's before the JW is out?

    It could very well be that ASUS is replacing A2 by A3.
    It was announced back when the Seagate Momentus XT was released.
    I thought that A3 was going to be sold only in limited amounts through some retailers.

    Hey sean473, check out the new MSI GX740-235US if you are into gaming without issues or headaches. Rob at RK computers has a pix of this new baby. I can say after 6 Asus g73's from bestbuy this has been a great purchase for me and I dont have to steal the MSI vbios to get my Asus computer to work. Good luck hope the best for you.
