Summary: This computer is awesome. It is like a desktop and can handle any PC game you throw at it with ease. It does get hot, but its a laptop. The 17" version is very large, and therefore heavy. If that's ok, grab this thing. If not, maybe try the 15".
Summary: Overall, this is a good computer. I'm not the biggest fan of the mouse being flat on the surface of the laptop. (Meaning it doesn't dip in a few mm) However, I would say that about any computer. Great product.
Little bit heavy and light leak outs from the keyboard

Summary: Everyting is OK but the weight was more than I expected. Sound and picture are all good. But the thin and weak printings on the each key are not very readable and identifiable. The light leaks out from the back lid keyboard, and therefore disturbs eye. Otherwise It is a good laptop.
Really Great Computer, Windows 8 is the Wrong OS for It
Xochimilco, Esq., Amazon
3 August 2013
Summary: I'd really love to give this computer 5 stars. The screen is beautiful, the keyboard spacious, the speakers clear, the processor fast. Fairly light for the size. But it came with Windows 8, which has been a problem. Windows 8 from what I can tell is made primarily for touch screens, especially tablets. This ASUS isn't a touch screen, so you can't use Windows 8 the way it was designed. It all becomes clumsy to use.
Summary: I use this as my portable office when I have to visit customer sites. The resolution allows me to use visual studio in a productive mode, rather than to just put out fires. The combo of CPU and RAM actually lets me get things done. My only complaint is the form factor. It is about 1/8 of an inch wider than 99.9% of all 17" laptops. I cannot get this thing into my old leather (and very expensive) briefcase. I had to buy a cheapy one to get around.
Summary: To be honest I had reservations in buying a laptop online. Not being familiar with the name ASUS, I was very hesitant. So far, this laptop has performed well, I have no complaints. I did buy the extended warranty, if things keep working the way they do I wont need to have it. I would buy another ASUS again.
Summary: Very Good Laptop, bought it from XoticPC Added 128GM SSD and other customizations from XoticPC They were very helpful.Prompt. Even after a month they were willing to exchange it for G75VW-AS71 (for its keyboard) Pros : Performance Sound -Really good.
Summary: Computer runs smoothly came with windows 8 but windows 8 seams to be like vista with many bugs and issues. Put windows 7 on it and it runs fairly smooth not all dirvers were compatible with windows 7 but easier to deal with than windows 8 that has many bugs. The mouse pad is the only problemaic issue with the computer, it is very sensitive and jumps the cursor around while typing. Have to keep hands far away from the pad and off the computer al together while typing.
Excerpt: Написал только недостатки, достоинства лень писать, хотя они конечно тоже есть.
Cons: 1) Металлический корпус бьет током. 2) Тикание. Очень нервирует этот шум. Вероятно так шумит винчестер который на 1TB, потому что если использовать только SSD то становится тихо. Также отчасти помогает уменьшение занимаемого места на террабайтном винте. 3) Слабая видеокарта 4) Тяжелый 5) Шнур от сабвуфера через год перестал работать, соответственно теперь без сабвуфера. 6) При закрывании крышки ноутбука она не плотно закрывается.
Pros: Материал корпуска, дизайн, графическое ядро, более менее приличная матрица, нормальный аккумулятор, цена, клавиатура с подсветкой.
Cons: На матрице, если присмотреться можно увидеть сетку. Ну это больше мелочь, нежели недостаток. Клавиатура мне не нравится это точная копия с пятнашки, то есть по бокам по 2.5 сантиметра пространства. Совмещенный блок стрелок с цифровым меня крайне раздражает, пользуюсь пол года, никак не могу привыкнуть.
