Pros: turned on
Cons: came defective, said it would connect to the internet, but isn't actually connected. IE, not steam, no blizzard, no games. The whole reason I purchased it. Asus support did reach out to me (the dirvers were not correctly installed when I recieved it). They called me a liar in so many words and told me to do a system restore to a working point. Um, it never worked. Fortunately Newegg is taking it back, however, after dealing with asus I will not be replacing it. I encourage anyone considering a gaming laptop to purchase from another company. Or forgo the laptop entirely and build something yourself that you know will work. This is the route I am opting for as I have yet to botch putting together a computer.
Other Thoughts: i had to re-write this as newegg did allow me to return it and my first review reflected that. Since then they have allowed me to return the laptop and are reviewing it for a full refund. At least newegg will stand behind their products even when the manufacturer doesn't.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Came missing drivers, windows apps don't work, unable to install games. This laptop has been a nightmare since I got it. It is completely useless as a gaming laptop, I had one of the G750 models that I loved and sadly it broke. I thought this would be a great replacement. I will never buy ROG agaion after this. And what's best, newegg won't let me return it so i'm out $1500. Seriously don't waste your money on this garbage laptop or newegg.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Easy Installation, great layout, lots of useful features and extras, compatibility
Cons: haven't found any
Other Thoughts: This is the third gaming pc I have built for myself, the first using an Asus board and gpu. I chose this board as I purchased an ROG 750JW laptop earlier this year and fell in love with the brand. I didn't have one problem with the build or setup. The realtek audio is just the worst (it came with my laptop as well), but it can be removed. The bios is extremely user friendly and aesthetically pleasing which was a pleasant surprise coming from an old evga z68 bios. Basically if you are looking for a powerful, user-friendly gaming board then this is a great choice.READ FULL REVIEW
