Asus G75VW-DH72

 

Gaming prowess rarely comes cheap, but that doesn't mean it can't at least be affordable. The Asus G75VW-DH72 gaming laptop may offer pricing and performance well below what tricked out systems like the Eurocom Scorpius can offer, but when stacked...

Performance for all your gaming needs. Quad-Core Intel Core i7 processor with 10GB of RAM. Nvidia GeForce GTX 670M graphics processing. Decent battery life. Blu-ray drive and 1080p display. Comes with Windows 8

No touch screen for Windows 8. Can't offer playable performance at top graphics settings

The Asus G75VW-DH72 may not offer the best performance, but it puts a solid gaming laptop in your hands for under two grand.

ASUS G75VW-DH72 Gaming Notebook Review

 

There are some laptops that are meant for ultimate portability, made of a few paper thin bits of silicon and glass with an aluminum shell wrapped around it. This is almost exactly the opposite of such a laptop. The ASUS G75VW-DH72, part of their...

The notebook seems to be pretty firmly wedged in place with cardboard end-caps. The flaps to either side contained the transformer brick and power cable, so no flex there either. I wouldn't be worried about damage unless the package had some externally...

Very Happy

 

It was fast 3 years ago and it still is. You really need to tone down the graphics settings in newer games in order to get playable framerates. i7 gives great multi tasking as does my upgrade to 16gb of ram ; After building a desktop and getting used...

Battery life is un-exceptional. I have 2 hour 40 minute classes a few nights per week and this thing barely makes it through, even on balanced/battery saver ; By today's standards it's very bulky and heavy which is why i'm looking to upgrade

ASUS Never Lets Me Down

 

I actually removed the two terabyte drives and installed an SSD and another smaller drive. This machine flies with the SSD. Also, I'm running Windows 10 preview on this now. Runs great. No complaints now that the stupid metro interface isn't there by...

This was the best deal I could find for a powerful mobile workstation with this size of screen and full keyboard including 10-key. I think I actually got this via Newegg Flash and saved an extra $60 or something on it-- gotta love that. ASUS has always...

Didn't actually come pre-installed with Windows 8. Came with a weird note saying I had to download it or something, if I recall. This isn't a big con for me, though, because I have archived copies of all the versions of Windows. For someone with less...

Not sure

 

All and all, nice laptop. Love the lite keyboard. Has matte screen not sure what to think of that yet , but no reflection is kinda nice. Gloss displays look more vivid

No subwoofer included ; Strange dual video sub-system that does not work the way it should. It has both intel and NVidia but seems to always want to use the intel. I would prefer just one GPU ; I do not see the view angle advantage they speak of ;...

Solid Machine

 

has a nice, solid feel to it. would probably buy it, or one in this series, again.

fast bootup, ssd drive, 7200 rpm hd, fine graphics, lighted keyboard ; the unit does what need it to do ; i've had it almost a year now, and really don't have many complaints

factory structure of the hard drives ; lack of touch screen ; win 8.1. (fixable, but still 8.1)

ASUS N76VJ-DH71

 

Very nice laptop, lots of ram and hard drive space and fast processor. Big screen

Windows 8!! I think this version of Windows is one of the worst! I'm no expert but have been using computers for over 20 years and I feel that Windows 8 is not very user friendly

Laptop wow Service sucks

 

I may have bought refurbished but service is universal. I don't think the service would have been different if I had spent the $1250 on a new laptop than $1250 I spent on the refurbished one.

Really nice laptop. Quality gaming laptop with top performance. Up to today I would always recommend Asus for most of their product line

purchased 12/17. Gave it to my son for Christmas 12/25. on 1/11, I had to rma the whole laptop to get a windows activation issue resolved because it was policy not to provide product keys. Didn't get the laptop back until 1/28. on 2/8 I call because...
