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.
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.
Pros: Attractive stealth fighter design, Excellent keyboard, Solid graphics and performance, Runs cool and quiet while gaming, Above-average battery life
Das gebotene Zubehör ist
in Ordnung. An Ausstattung kann man die meisten Anschlüsse und Extras
finden, die heute schon Standard sind. Nur ein TV Tuner hat uns noch
gefehlt, der in so ein Notebook optimal passen würde. 4x USB 3.0, HDMI,
RJ-45 und VGA waren dabei. Webcam und Bluetooth sind auch schon
Standard. Der W-Lan Chip ist im Vergleich zur G75 Variante auch wieder
schneller und hochwertiger geworden.
