The Bottom Line: Great computer and I would recommend to friends. I give it 4.5 out of 5.


I've been an ASUS fan for about 10 years now going back to my days of custom building towers for competitive online gaming (Half Life, Counter Strike etc) so ASUS laptops were kind of a no brainer.

I'm phasing out the tower PCs in my house for the space saving and portability furnished by laptops and this is ASUS #3 for the house. All four of us are avid gamiers with the main gaming being World of Warcraft.
The G75 CRUSHES WoW on ultra and barely breaks a sweat doing it. The GTX660 is a monster card and so far has handled everything I've thrown at it with ease. 

Out of the box it was great but with room to grow  in the processor, RAM and HD departments. The second HD bay is just begging for an SSD drive.  
I actually got this for my son to replace his desktop but I ALMOST gave him my G60 (older version of the G75) and kept this badboy for myself.     
The G75 has done some nice maturing from the G60  in several key areas. The G75, first and foremost solved the heating issues associated with the G60 by relocating the fan and allocating more air intake vents. Another big change is the anti-glare screen. My G60 turns into a mirror when their is any kind of light beyond normal room lighting. The last noteworthy change is finish. The G60 is a fingerprint magnet and is almost impossible to keep it looking clean. The G75 has a matte black finish that gives it that "stealth fighter" look and feel.

The G75 isn't all sunshine and roses though. The single biggest issue with it is the MASSIVE size for a laptop. Even though it is rated as a 17.3 in display, it will not fit into a standard laptop bag or backpack. It is about an inch wider and deeper than the G60 and about 3/4in taller. With size comes weight. This beast weighs over 9 pounds. All that said, people (like me) who buy this laptop don't buy it for its light weight and portability. We buy it to crush our enemies with the added bonus of portability.

This is designed for gamers and hits the mark quite well for the price point. Slap an Alienware logo on it and you'll slap another $500 on too. 

I would (and may) buy another one of these to replace the last desktop in house...if I can finally convince the wife to part with her G15 keyboard. :)
