Excerpt: Hidden under the Stealth Fighter inspired wedges of the ASUS G750JX is hardware put together specifically for gamers. The powerful Quad Core i7 4700HQ teams up with 16GB of RAM and a 256GB SSD for serious number crunching prowess. The NVIDIA GeForce GTX770M is no slouch either and will run the latest games without comprising detail settings. The 17-inch 1,920 x 1,080 screen has an extra wide 140 degree viewing angle and is 120Hz – meaning it’s 3D Vision compatible.
Summary: The newest iteration of HP's business Netbook adds some useful optional features, including an HD 10-inch screen and a dual-core Atom processor, but it's looking dated next to faster 11.6-inch ultraportables.
Pros: Solid, stylish design; huge number of configuration options; comfortable keyboard; newly added dual-core Atom N550 and HD screen options.
Cons: Subpar battery life with included four-cell battery; small trackpad; gets pricey in the higher-end configurations.
ASUS G750JX-DB71 Gaming Notebook Review: And to the Republic...
2 October 2013
Excerpt: As we’re swimming through the veritable flood of Haswell refresh notebooks, we’ve stumbled across the latest in a line of very popular gaming models: the ASUS G750JX-DB71. This notebook is the successor to the well-known G75 series, which topped out at an Intel Core i7-3630QM with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670MX dedicated graphics. Now, ASUS has jacked up the specs a little more, including the latest 4 th -gen CPUs from Intel as well as 700-series NVIDIA GPUs.
Conclusion: Go buy one, I did. If you're a gamer this is a superb choice. The price is reasonable for what you get, and I personally prefer the ASUS ROG G750's cooling and trackpad to its most direct competitor in price and features, the MSI GT70. In fact, I prefer the keyboard too because the game-centric SteelSeries keyboard design on the MSI doesn't work as well when using the machine for productivity (the Windows button moved to the right side drives me crazy).
Pros: Excellent CPU and graphics performance, relatively cool and quiet, full HD display with wide color gamut, good upgrade options and great gaming experience.
Cons: At 8.75 lbs. it's not wildly portable, matte display shows grain on white backgrounds.
Excerpt: Republic of Gamers is the gaming brand from ASUS, and in the product line-up you'll find motherboards, graphics cards, gaming accessories and even laptops. Today we're taking a closer look at the Haswell-based ROG G750JX-4144H, a laptop with a quad-core Intel Core i7 processor and a GeForce GTX 770M graphics card.
Conclusion: Is the G750JX a great deal? Yes. Do we like it better than the Alienware 17—a better performer with an edgy look, a nicer display, and a slot-loading Blu-ray drive? No, but the Alienware costs $900 more. Last we looked, that would buy you 15 or 18 games.
Pros: Great battery life, Loads of I/O ports, Backlit keyboard, Reasonably priced
Cons: Heavy, Narrow viewing angles, No Blu-ray drive, Bloatware
Summary: With the ASUS G750JX, ASUS proves that you can get a great-looking and fast gaming notebook without selling your firstborn. This rig is an able workhouse, providing impressive graphics performance and longer battery life than its closest competitors. However, the audio is slightly underwhelming when compared with the likes of Alienware and MSI, and you don't get as many fun backlighting options.
Conclusion: The Asus G750 is the pinnacle of the company’s drive to produce mass-market gaming laptops with incredible power at an affordable price. There’s almost nothing wrong with this system, and the few downsides worth mentioning, like the matte display’s lack of visual depth, are balanced by other advantages. We could recommend this laptop even if its price was similar to the competition. But it’s not; instead, the price is lower.
Pros: Plenty of ports, Good keyboard and touchpad, High-quality 1080p non-gloss display, Respectable battery life, Excellent all-around performance, Runs cool
Cons: Not particularly attractive, Large and heavy
