    Give the age of the G73JW, i'd pass it up. Your MBP has more CPU power (G73JW means i7-740qm) and the GPU while packing less power than the GTX460m is still very respectable for gaming. I'd also say the MBP is worth more than the G73, not sure that G73 is worth the $1000 he's asking for even with the 3D lcd.

    Yeah, the age of the system is what's keeping me from jumping on this. That and the fact that my mom spent $2300 on the MBP for me back in November. It was an early Christmas present.

    I'd most definitely keep the MBP.

    I'm leaning more and more towards keeping my MBP. If I got rid of it, I'd be going to the hospital to get the Asus removed from my anus.

    I'd keep the MBP it holds it's value better. ;)

    Not according to Best Buy. I occasionally check their trade-in values and in the condition that my MacBook Pro is in, which is like it just came out of the box, they would only give me $530. I flat out told the guy there that the price was an insult.

    Well, it is an insult, but then again, it's Best Buy! :p

    Exactly, that's like walking into Gamestop expecting them to give you top dollar for your trade ins.
