I second that. Or you can get a Gateway, Asus's top of the line models. I got a gateway nv51b and couldnt be happier.
I don't know where you got Gateway being Asus's top of the line, as far as I know, and the google search I just did to confirm, Gateway is a completely other company. Also I've never seen a good quality Gateway, personally.

Gateways are great. Even my local BestBuy prefers Gateways over HP or Toshiba

My 3 month old Toshiba is already in for repair. The trackpad and the clickers stopped working. Works only with a mouse.

Maybe they've got that fixed by now.
I know that Toshiba keyboards are terrible on notebooks.

Without looking any options, I highly recommend ASUS G74 110%. Without even looking at the options, if you can find a brand new one, I would even suggest ASUS G72 with i7 100%.
(Yes, I know, I skipped G73, when you put G72 and G73 next to each other, you will see the difference)

P.S.: I looked at the options now.
ASUS has
- internal USB 3.0
- 8 GB RAM (Toshiba has 4)
- backlit keyboard
- GTX 560M with 2GB (Toshiba has 460M with 1.5GB)
- i7 (Toshiba has i5)
- ASUS gives you Windows and Drivers DVD, and also recovery DVD (Toshiba doesn't)

After looking at the options, I suggest even getting ASUS G72 with the best processor you can find. In this G74, I didn't see express card or firewire option (maybe they listed wrong on the page linked, I am not sure), but G72 has em, just G72 does not have internal USB 3.0. G72 has GTX260M though instead of 560M.

So, my suggestion is, making a choice between ASUS G72 (if you can find) and G74; forget about Toshiba!

Of the two laptops you have listed, the Asus is by far the better laptop; much better processor and better graphics card.
