Pros: . Strong sturdy design, heavy, dosent feel fragile at all
. Cooling solution is flawless, heaviest of games don't warm the keyboard surface
. White led backlight for keys
. Large functional track pad.
. Built in legs on bottom
. Windows 8.1
Cons: . Heavy, large, only the biggest laptop backpacks will fit this beast
. Windows 8.1
. The front of the laptop whre you rest your hands is much more raised than most gaming laptops and hard plastic/metal, the corner leaves impressions on my left arm after awhile.
Other Thoughts: Bought this last may at 3 grand but its this exact laptop so here is the 1yr follow up. Zero complaints, runs everything fantastic, dosent over heat, 32 gigs ram, 880m nvidia, i7, blueray read/write, all round fantastic.
This laptop continues to handle game releases. Plays GTA 5 near max setting across the board smooth as silk. AC : Rogue, smooth as silk. Witcher 3 just hit today and at default settings there are only slight framerate hiccups during cutscenes, no where else. Averages 40-50 fps during game play and the laptop gpu exhaust fan port gets about as warm as when playing WoW on ultra settings in a capitol city during peak hours. IE, dosent overheat at all.
Two thumbs up and five eggs, very nice :)
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.
