Asus G75VW Reviews

Not the fastest in this price range, but it’s a good price for this specific model which have some advantages: very good build quality, very good keyboard, superb cooling system that keeps the system cool & quiet, very good matte 1080p screen and being a 17.3″ which is an advantage for those who want a 17.3″ since there aren’t enough 17.3″ competitors in this price range.

Downsides are the 5400RPM HDD, high weight and not-too-good battery performance (3-3.5 hours surfing the web through WiFi). The HDD can be replaced with another HDD or SSD, so this is not really a problem, given other laptops usually come with the typical 7200RPM HDD which is also not too fast. Besides, for gaming it won’t matter almost at all.
