Asus G75VW-NS71 Notebook Review

Processor 2.3GHz Intel Core i7-3610QM
Memory 12GB, 1,333MHz DDR3
Hard drive 750GB 7,200rpm
Chipset Intel HM77
Graphics Nvidia GeForce GTX 660M
Operating system Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
Dimensions (WD) 16.3x12.6 inches
Height 0.9 - 2 inches
Screen size (diagonal) 17.3 inches
System weight / Weight with ac adapters 9.5 pounds / 11.7 pounds

The good: The Asus G75VW-NS71 has a cutting-edge processor, a new Nvidia GPU, a slightly thinned-down body, a matte antiglare screen, and faster ports and connections than its predecessor, including tons of USB 3.0 ports and Thunderbolt.

The bad: This laptop's still not cheap; it may not be $2,000, but it's far more expensive than the average laptop. And, let's face it: this machine's still a boat. Also, in performance it lags behind more powerful gaming laptops like the Origin EON17-S.

The bottom line: If you want to buy a "budget" gaming laptop, the Asus G75VW-AS71 offers plenty of horsepower and features in its heavy 17-inch body. Just don't expect anything svelte -- or good battery life.

Customer Reviews:

1.Pros: Powerhouse computer. Plays all games on high (except sniper elite v2 and i think it's a game issue). Pretty quiet and doesn't run very hot at all. Attractive and not gaudy like some gaming laptops. Most said battery life was a con but the adaptateur hp actually exceeded my expectations (i expected 1 hour of life). Awesome speakers for a laptop. There are too many pros to add...

Cons: Weight (to be expected) - though what was unexpected imo was the power cord being so heavy. The power cord basically has a desktop powersupply attached to it (not enough to deduct an egg). Another con is that is doesn't have 5.8 ghz capabilities and I love to run wifi N 5.8 on my nodes (this avoids interference from a lot of common wifi products).

2. This chargeur ordinateur asus is selling like crazy everywhere that's why it goes out of stock so quick. I received this laptop free of defects , I also ordered a samsung 128GB ssd which I installed in the free drive bay, after I tested the computer to make sure it was ok I formatted and installed win 7 to the ssd and made the 500GB a data drive. I installed Battlefield 3 to the ssd and set everything to high then set a few things to Ultra along with Ambient Occlusion to HBAO, It is running between 40-50 FPS that's better than my desktop 560 nvidia. This computer has just what you need and not a bunch of extras that just cost money for no gain. it is worth it to add a ssd it just makes everything load so fast. This is not just a gaming computer but not many laptops will run the newest games this good and still be this cool and very low noise, it just looks very sleek and not flashy. The 670m GPU should last years as it only needs 75 watts , this was a wise move by Asus. I rate this a 10.

3. Pros: Blazing speed. Gorgeous display. In the short time we have had this beast, we have cranked Skyrim to ultra with zero hitching, ran TERA on level 5 settings with no lag whatsoever. Diablo 3 isn't intensive on the machine but it is flawless as well. It is built like a tank so if a large laptop that is heavy is an issue for you, stay away.

Cons: Sadly we had to RMA through Asus already. We had not tried the Chargeur EXA0904YH on battery power until this morning. The battery light indicated that it was fully charged. I accidentally unplugged the computer and it powered completely off. Long story short, Asus says its a known issue where the device is not accepting power through the battery. RMA process began this morning.

We are not dissuaded from this laptop because of a factory defect. IN the brief time we have had it, new fr adapter has functioned way above and beyond expectations. I will update when the RMA is complete.

4.  I see reviews of people saying they ran games like Diablo 3 and Battlefield 3 on max settings with no problems. I cant even run these games on low with this laptop without obvious visible lag. The lag is too bad to even play the game. I dont understand seeing as how the hardware is better than my desktop, but it can run these games fine. Maybe my video card is defective? I dont know, im pretty dissappointed and if my laptop turns out to be what i think it is, im gonna have to send it back for a replacement which is SUCH a hassle. :(
