This review is from: ASUS ROG G75VX 17.3" Gaming Notebook with Intel Core i7-3630QM 2.40Ghz (3.40Ghz Turbo), 8GB DDR3 Memory, 1TB HDD, Nvidia GeForce GTX 670MX , DVDRW, HD Webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, Windows 8
Pros: Bought this laptop 4 month ago and was happy as a kid. High gaming performance with 1st class video card and good working machine(running matlab days and nights).
Cons: The main concern is NEVER BUY REFURBISHED! Got mine "bricked" after an attempt to make a dual boot with Ubuntu/Windows on separate hard drives and have disabled Fast Boot option in BIOS. Now it is as useful as Justin Bieber songs. As it is refurbished and my warranty is over(3 mnth limited) I took to a local repair shop where they have asked 1400$ for 900 laptop as motherboard need to be replaced(they are limited in options). It is appeared to be a common problem for this motherboards so be careful(easily googlable) as BIOS hardware re-installation is required.
Other Thoughts: If you guys are thinking in such investment I suggest never to purchase refurbished laptops not due to quality but rather to the future concerns and possible claims. But the one who is greedy pays twice.READ FULL REVIEW
