Excerpt: I bought my first Asus ROG 3and 1/2 yrs. ago. The one I just bought is even more powerful. I use it for large photo files in Phtoshop and InDesign. It's the fastest pc I've ever owned. I heard Windows 8 was terrible but after only a few hrs. I'm able to do what I did w Win 7, only faster and easier. In 3 or 4 yrs., I'll most likely buy another Republic of Gamers G750JS-DS71 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black) by ASUS.
Summary: Compared to my old laptop, the ASUS ROG G750JS-DS71 is an absolute dream. I bought this laptop for photo and video editing purposes and this thing is an absolute performer. It is very fast! It boots up fast and runs adobe programs fast. I don't play games on it, but if I did I'm positive this laptop is can handle graphic intensive games. Here are some things you need to be aware of. 1) It's big and heavy!
Summary: The ASUS ROG exceeds my expectation, even though I'm not running high graphic games on it. I mostly using it for web surfing and TV shows watching. The large screen, the easy-to-use QWERTY keyboard and the conveniently located mouse allow smooth usage for any purpose. Couple of downsides I have to mention which related to the win8 installed on it. 1.
Summary: Simply the best laptop I have ever used. I have added a 240gb SSD, and 16gb memory kit to bring the total memory up to 32gb. I use the machine mostly for productivity work, but it is definitely a gamer as well.
Summary: This is the second ASUS ROG I've owned, and it is a quality product. I haven't encountered any issues playing games like Titanfall and Warcraft, plus the new slim design is absolutely beautiful. Pros: Great performance, solid build, and the boot time is unreal. I cannot open the lid of my laptop fast enough to beat the log-in screen. These models also have a glowing ROG emblem on the back. While completely cosmetic, it's a nice touch for that added wow factor.
Excellent speeds, quiet & efficient cooing system, good price.

Summary: First time purchasing an ASUS, was a little worried, I have been buying Dell Computers for 10 years. A little over a month into using the new system, all I can say Fantastic! Speeds are awesome on all of my current games, no complaints, and the cooling system is really good and quiet. Purchasing off AMAZON was a piece of cake, with no issues. Unless something drastically changes in the next few years, this will be my new method of buying gaming laptops going forward.
