1 out of 5 eggsfaulty laptop

Pros: none that i can see

Cons: got laptop mailed out to me turned it on was kinda slow and figured it might be from 1st turn on. had set up finished and turned it off to move from one location to another and when i started it back up all i got to was the classpnp.sys error cant f9 restore it cant system restore it asus said that the f9 would work yet no avail

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that the recovery partition has not been installed on that laptop. The best thing to do is return the unit for an exchange.

Also, you can try restarting your computer and press F2 to get into the bios. Try disabling AHCI in Bios. If that does not work then you will have to send the unit in for service.

If you have any questions or comments you can email me at cl-jeffrey@asus.com

5 out of 5 eggsLove it!

Pros: Back-lit Keyboard, comfortable, huge screen, plays any games I download, not that heavy for what it does, comes with a backpack and a mouse.

Cons: Pretty big, touch pad is OK, the disk tray feels flimsy.

Other Thoughts: I absolutely love this computer, although when I received it in the mail, three parts of the screen were full of dead pixels. It sucked waiting for my laptop to come back but I was glad it was fixed. The keyboard feels great on my hands. As I said, the disk tray feels a little flimsy but it still gets the job done! I highly recommend this laptop.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat!!!

Pros: Fast, fast fast.....nice screen, lots of ram and i still cant find anything to bog it down. Build quality is excellent. Love the keyboard, plus a free xbox...how can ya go wrong

Cons: Very heavy, but thats to be expected from this beast. If your looking for a nice light portable laptop, look elsewhere

5 out of 5 eggsWorth every dollar

Pros: If there was ever a beast of a laptop, this is it. Excellent processor speeds, graphics card doesn't choke unless under heavy loads, and the RAM rounds this laptop out for almost anything. Display hasn't given me any problems so far, nor has the lighted keyboard. Excellent use of cooling techniques in this machine, all the heat pours out the back safely.

Cons: The heat that comes from this laptop will melt chocolate, so be careful with your chocolate. No other problems as of yet.

1 out of 5 eggsBad Experience So Far

Pros: Nice display and solid design. Seems to be fast from what i can tell.

Cons: Wireless broken. Pretty poor tech support from ASUS so far.

Other Thoughts: The wireless on the laptop was broken out of the box. I could see the signal at times and it would drop away completely. Has nothing to do with the router and modem since I kept signals on all other devices. Tried many things with the help of ASUS forum members. Newest Atheros Drivers did nothing to resolve the issue. Tried a fresh install via the recover partition. Problem remains. Advice from Asus (disable power saver of network adapter) caused the adapter to stop functioning altogether, making a bad situation worse, as I could not renable it without reinstalling the drivers again. Still broken. Will alter this review depending on my expereinces with newegg and Asus moving forward. Been very happy with both in the past so trying to give them the benefit of the doubt. Nevertheless, $1700 paperweight right now.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

Sorry to hear that the unit was not working right out of the box. Is is still under 30 days from the date you purchased the unit?

If so try contacting newegg to see if they can replace with another unit that is working properly. If you purchase your laptop and it's more than 30 days from the date of purchase you will have to send the unit in for service.

Please email me the serial number at cl-jeffrey@asus.com with C1042-2304 in the subject line.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus RULES

Pros: Awesome, good enough to be a full desktop replacement, good gaming laptop, great to take to "Lan Parties" no need to lug around a 65 pound desktop and large LCD monitor... I've never really had a problem with this. in fact, I even upgraded the Ram to 32gb, added a super fast SSD, and upgraded the wifi card to take advantage of the speeds of my wifi network.

Cons: Its a BEAST which is expected considering what it has in it. Power supply needs to be 50W more. after playing games like StarCraft II and Diablo III at full res full speed the power supply is almost too hot to touch. The touchpad drivers suck. I had a problem where i could not disable the touchpad. I use an external mouse. i hate typing and you barely brush your finger on the touchpad then the cursor shoots off to the other side of the screen or just plain ninja vanishes. I couldnt disable the touchpad in the bios cause the drivers would kill the keyboard too in windows. I ended up downloading driver version 9.0.2.2 and the problems were solved.

Other Thoughts: If you want a GOOD gaming laptop and half the price of the big "Alien...." brand I'd get this one. The bottom redesigned access plate to get to the hard drives, wifi card, and ram is awesome in the G74. They went back to the old design in the G75 which is in my opinion is stupid. The G73 and G75 you have to remove the keyboard to get to one of the ram slots. its a royal pain. I've been in electronics for 20 years, PC repair for about 15 years, IT for the last 10 years I hate having to take my laptop apart to upgrade it.

I take this laptop everywhere. its just a great buy and great machine. I also bought a 275Watt inverter for the car so i'm connected.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Performance

Pros: -Price
-Performance (Memory, HDD, GPU, CPU)
-Backlit keyboard
-Huge Bright Display
-Looks
-Ease of Accessability
-Cooling
-Comfortable
-Small amount of bloatware (easy to remove)
-Everything works right out of the box (contrary to posts made in other reviews) The track pad disable function works, the webcam works, and all other things people complained about has been fixed and works perfectly!
-The mouse and bag are also very cool! the mouse is comfortable and accurate and cool looking and the bag is big enough to fit this massive laptop! Other people said that the bag was only big enough to fit the laptop and its components but you can fit a notebook and a small text book in it easily (If you are one of those people that carry every book and notebook around for school then I'm sorry but this backpack will not fit everything and will save your back. Again sorry for that)

Cons: No real cons. The issues I have with this laptop are very very small and not important or relevent to the actual quality of the laptop.
-The right hand palm rest right above the multi card reader clicks as if there is a button but there isn't one
-If the battery life is above 95% and you plug it in it will not charge fully. Not much of an issue since its easy to drain it down below 95%
-The Battery life is not amazing but nor is it dreadful. Not much of a con really...
-

Other Thoughts: In terms of all the pros the price is amazing. You would be hard pressed to find a laptop with the same ammount of performance as this laptop for such a low price! On the subject of performance the thing is a powerhouse that rivals even my desktop's performance! There is enough memory to sink a boat, the hard drives are partitioned into 4 parts (2 each), the GPU performs perfectly (61C running BF3 maxed out), and the CPU (12 cores 50C BF3 maxed) has enough power to cover any game out there tenfold. The backlit keyboard is a plus as well and gives me the chance to hold it over any mac user's head since I payed half the price for twice the power! The keyboard is also very comfortable! The thing also looks stunning. Its very subtle but I love it! The back pannel makes for easy replacement and customization of internal components very easy too. The most impressive thing is the cooling. I have never owned a laptop that cools as well as this one! All in All 10/10 for Asus!
