Asus G75VW-DS71

 

The Asus G75VW-DS71 is nicely priced for a midrange gaming laptop, and it works as a multimedia behemoth.

Large 1080p screen. Lots of storage space. Strong multimedia performance. Equipped with Blu-ray drive, four USB 3.0 ports. Includes numeric keypad.

Can't play games well on full settings at native resolution. Large. Heavy. Mini DisplayPort, not Thunderbolt. Only 2.4GHz 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi.

Asus G75VW review

 

When it comes to gaming laptops, most people think of Alienware and Origin as the prime providers of high-end, high-performance, high-cost PC hardware. There are other players in the field, however; Asus has made its own gaming laptop under the...

The Asus G75VW-AS71 has a cutting-edge processor, a new Nvidia GPU, a slightly thinned-down body, a matte antiglare screen, and faster ports and connections than its predecessor, including tons of USB 3.0 ports and Thunderbolt.

This laptop's still not cheap; it may not be $2,000, but it's far more expensive than the average laptop. And, let's face it: this machine's still a boat. Also, in performance it lags behind more powerful gaming laptops like the Origin EON17-S.

If you want to buy a "budget" gaming laptop, the Asus G75VW-AS71 offers plenty of horsepower and features in its heavy 17-inch body. Just don't expect anything svelte -- or good battery life.
