very pleased with my purchase


was looking for a desktop replacement for an old sony laptop ( got 12 years out of the thing so I really can't complain!!) purchased this laptop for around $1000. ( now they are 899 but that's the price you pay with any technology), really can't...

very fast, great for playing games, arrived in perfect condition, looks brand new

windows 8 sucks ( but windows 7 laptops with good graphics cards are hard to find ) wish the graphics card was a little higher spec, but for the price, really can't complain. will easily play any 3d game decently for years to come

Pretty and works!


This lap top has been doing exactly what I want. I wanted to be able to play most games when away from my home desktop, it does just that. Has been used with Diablo 3 max graphics, and I'm certain it can be used for other things. For some reason I wish...

Fast ; Cool design (Stays cool too!) ; Big Screen

It has Windows 8

Great Desktop Replacement!


Windows 8 isn't the horror story I have heard from others. While I do prefer Vista (had a computer that could easily run it) and 7. Eight isn't horrible. This laptop can have a SSD added later for your games. Big positive and I will be doing this when...

Gaming and Photo Editing Power ; Screen (direct facing) ; Keyboard ; Cooling ; Look & Feel ; The RoG series of laptops have been a favorite of mine for some time. This is the second one I have purchased and really love the machine. While my wife is the...

Size ; Battery Life (3 hours, which is fine for what it is) ; Side angle on screen ; Sound ; The battery life is what one would expect but I'll still state it as a negative as it is something to keep in mind. Looking at the screen from the side causes...

Never Buying From Asus Again...


Nice looking laptop ; Quick...when it worked

Started having problems right out of the box, laptop would slow down, graphics card was crashing every few seconds, made the entire machine unusable. Sent it back to Asus on 4/22 and they still have my machine as "waiting for parts", with customer...

Asus rocks


We have 10 Asus computers or tablets. Only one has gone back to the factory. Most have been purchased at Newegg!

It came out of the box screaming fast. I gave this computer to my son for college and fun. Every few days he tells me something new that he likes about this G75 series. I don't think you can go wrong with Asus refurbished products. I bought an Asus G75...

Everything else is in good shape or acceptable for it being refurbished. I just wish I didn't have to send it back for what I think is a hardware issue. I am an owner, just not the purchaser.

It's good hardware, price is a little steep for what it is but nothing outrageous. It's good for a gamer who isn't insane about being able to play the most current games at the best quality. A small example, it handles Skyrim, Mass Effect Series,...

My only serious issue (which is the reason I'm planning to return this laptop) is that the screen flickers. And you should all know that that's a no no for the eyes and the brains and the what not. I went through and updated Windows, monitor drivers,...

Frustrating start


I will keep trying to fix this issue, I'd hate to have to return this computer, I really loved the idea of spending hours playing all my games on it. It really sucks that the only thing not working is the main reason why I bought this.

All the specifications for this machine are greatly suited for any videogame aficionado ; Great screen, plenty of storage space, nice sound ; This product is listed as refurbished, but the cosmetics were in great shape, it felt like the machine was...

The main reason why I chose this computer is because of the GPU, however I hate to say that I have been really disappointed since day one, as soon as I tried playing games on this, problems started to appear regarding the GPU. Everytime I try to play...

Asus G75 G75VW Notebook


Laptop was much more than I thought I would receive for less than $1000. I have built computers for almost 30 years, but mostly desktops and this is the best deal for the money and quality. Just remember to do your updates like on any computer. And...

Excellent Gaming Laptop!! No problems at all! Had to get used to Windows 8 but you can put windows 7 on this laptop as well too. Excellent bang for the buck

Weight but not really a big deal
