Summary: Since the introduction of the G73 several years ago, ASUS' ROG models have been a garantor in the upper class of gaming notebooks, partly due to the superb cooling system which still dominated the market last year.
Pros: very good gaming performance, very good overall performance, quiet cooling system, good input devices
Conclusion: The Asus G750JZ comes with a rather large power brick that even adds more kilograms to the whole package but keep in mind this particular notebook was not meant to be portable in the first place. Costing about $3000, it’s quite an expensive purchase, though less expensive options are available.
Summary: Juggernaut. The GeForce GTX 880M, still based on Kepler, is currently the fastest available laptop GPU. It rouses the highest expectations of gaming performance in conjunction with the i7 quad-core.
Pros: Fast enough for all games even in ultra settings, Relatively viewing angle stable for a TN, Proper color reproduction; large color space for a TN, Razor-sharp, Very good input devices, Ultra-fast storage device, Quiet in idle mode, Quieter than comparable laptops during load, Accurate build, High...
Cons: Heavy, Pricey, Z-key broken in review sample, SSD Raid usefulness doubtful, Gaming in battery mode is very limited, CPU throttles slightly, Base's upper side is fingerprint sensitive, Overall high (category-typical) power consumption, No BluRay burner, No media, few accessories, A stow-away handle
Conclusion: All in all, it's easy to praise the G750JZ-XS72 (with, as we said, the mental reservation that those who don't need to burn DVDs and for whom 24GB of RAM is ample can save $500 by stepping down to the DS71).
Pros: Blazing gaming performance, Above-average sound, Long battery life
Cons: Huge and heavy, Expensive, Viewing angles aren't the best
Summary: With its new Nvidia GeForce GTX 880M GPU, the ASUS G750JZ is one of the mightiest gaming laptops on the market. At $2,999, it's not cheap, but this rig delivers some of the best gaming scores we've seen yet.
