Pros: . It has its own legs!
. Overwhelmingly powerful, ram is total overkill and a fantastic future proofing investment.
. Screen lid is much more sturdy than the g75. Don't need the foam layer inbetween it and the keyboard to prevent scratching.
. 5 to 6 second count from power button press to login windows screen.
. stays very very cool.
. Everything is very quiet except the blue-ray drive.
Cons: . keys feel slightly sensitive, don't always 100% of the time register my key presses unless im firm with my typing.
. still not a fan of the brushed metal this laptop uses for the entire keyboard area/hand palm resting points. it shows all smudges and is a pain to keep clean/ clean period.
. blue ray drive is noisey when initially reading discs.
. occasionally takes up to 45 seconds to power down, which is odd because usually it takes about 4 seconds to power down.
Other Thoughts: This is my second review for this laptop, scroll further down to find my initial one. This laptop is still a beast, Shadow of Mordor just came out two days back and this laptop runs it on full ultra settings with optional high res dlc smooth as silk 98% of the time. occasional split second hiccup when going ghost mode. not often though.
I'm always using this thing for everything i do and i take it all over the place so she's seen a good bit of rough use and takes it all in stride.
Pros: I've owned a g71, g73, g75 and now this g750 with top end 32gig ram, 880m geforce and blue ray burner model. This laptop series just gets better and better with each model year.
. Improved design from my g75. g75 lid felt flimsy and fragile, this g750 feels solid all round.
. Better chicklet keys on keyboard,
. Very very fast loading from power up, everything is quick. All my games run max ultra settings.
. I love the cooling system of the g series from asus.
Cons: . Mcafee wanted to do all my updates for me for windows, and managed to bork up the job so badly that windows 8 uninstalled everything mcafee attempted to do automatically. I manually ran windows update, good to go.
. Asus's registration page continually pops up every time I turn the laptop on but the registration process times out or errors out every single time.
. Very sensitive touch pad, easy to swipe when typing. Solution? Turn off the touch pad, gamers don't need it anyways heh.
. Not a fan of the brushed metal flat smooth surface look of the keyboard area. I liked the matte surface of my g75 with silver brushed metal keyboard area better. Looked cool and didn't succumb to finger prints as easily as the g750.
. Audio jacks are now on same side as my mouse, really wish they'd reverse the whole thing and put the cd drive on my mouse side and all the cable jack/ports on the left. Coords can potentially get in the way of my mouse use.
Other Thoughts: . Ordered sunday night 9pm, arrived tuesday afternoon 1pm. Nice!
. Windows 8.1 is only option, this will be hit or miss for folks. Me? Took about 10 minutes to get comfortable with it having never used the os before. Good to go.
Final thoughts : Mostly fantastic update, few gripes but nothing that makes me regret my purchase.
Pros: Ok, I've now been running with this laptop for just over a month.
. Still quiet as heck, even under full load, very very very quiet.
. Plays all my games at full or almost at full settings (i like 60fps and as such usually drop shadows a notch in all games i play)
. asus's update software with this laptop is a whole lot better than what came with the g73. Very quick, works well.
Cons: . Lifting the display from the center makes a tiny click in the plastic behind the camera, I think its un connecting one of the dongle connector thingies. A gentle push on the camera clicks it back, opening the screen lid from the sides removes the problem entirely.
. I've noticed a slight fade 'scratch' dead middle of the screen, I think its caused by putting pressure of any sort on the screen lid when its closed causing the screen to actually touch the keyboard. Solution? Don't put any pressure on the top of the laptop, handle it from the sides.
. When putting headphones on sometimes the laptop still puts out audio to the laptops speakers. Unplugging the headphones/external speakers and plugging them back in fixes it.
Other Thoughts: Slight quirks aside, with proper handling this laptop is still my number one suggestion for anyone looking for a quality fast as hell affordable laptop.READ FULL REVIEW
