    Default Asus Gaming Laptop Compatability - Which DVD should i use?

    I recently got a new Asus G51j laptop to replace my Toshiba x305-q706

    CPU: Intel Core i7 Q720 8 Cores
    GPU: Nvidia GTS 360M 1GB GDDR5
    Sound: NVidia High Definition Sound/Realtek High Definition Sound
    RAM: 8GB 1333 SODIMM
    HD: 500GB 7200rpm SATA II
    Optical Drive: Matshita 6X Blu-Ray Read/8X DVDRW Super Multi Combo Drive
    Ethernet: Atheros AR8131 PCI-E Gigabit Ethernet Controller
    WiFi: Intel Advanced-N 6300 802.11 a/b/g/n Wireless LAN

    Hi there,
    For Leopard, there are iAtkos and Ideneb. They are about the same, and the best one is the one got installed.
    Cheers,

    I was hoping for something a little more in depth, like if you knew what kexts work the best or which ones i need to use, or even if my hardware is supported at all?

    Depends on which OSX you like? Leopard or SL.
    You hardware is compatible, but it's fairly recent so may need some tweaking, and what to choose is depends on your installation method.
    There are some guides available that should help you out.


    Cheers,
