The system is powered by a quad-core Ivy Bridge 2.4GHz Intel Core i7-3630QM processor.

Hardware

Quad-Core Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7 Performance
This ASUS notebook imposes its will on other gaming notebooks with its powerful Ivy Bridge Intel Core i7-3630QM processor. Its quad cores can run at 2.4GHz and up to 8 threads. It can also be overclocked up to 3.4GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM memory ensures that programs and games open quickly so you can jump right into the fray with minimum loading times. Multitasking is also a breeze for when you have to take a break from being awesome in order to check email, surf the Web and more
Full 1080p HD Video Quality
When it comes to gaming computers, the graphics processor is one of the most important, if not the most important, component. Luckily, this ASUS notebook doesn't disappoint with an nVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M graphics processing unit (GPU). It has an enormous 3GB of dedicated memory just for rendering graphics. No longer will you have to deal with jagged edges and screen tearing because the nVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M provides smooth visual effects and stunning 1080p quality
An Immersive 3D Experience
It offers amazing 3D content creation and editing. It's powered by NVIDIA 3D Vision 2, which allows you to enjoy games, photos and movies like you've never seen them before using 3D Active Shutter and 3D LightBoost technology. The 17.3" display has a true 16:9 aspect ratio and a Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution for amazing 1080p high definition video playback. If the 17.3" screen isn't cutting it for you, you can output full HD 1080p content to a larger external HD monitor or HDTV via the HDMI port. You can also output in full 3D as well. Pair with SonicMaster audio technology, this ASUS notebook becomes a central hub for all your multimedia entertainment needs
Sleek Design
Inspired by a stealth fighter, this ASUS notebook regains superiority over the competition with advanced design and battle-hardened build quality. The soft, sleek but muscular lines will allow you to outmaneuver and dominate ungainly competitors, while the advanced thermals and gamer friendly design will keep you immersed. The spacious, adjustable and back-illuminated seamless one-piece keyboard with soft-touch palm rest and isolated arrow keys will allow you to keep gaming without cramping up. No need to just beat the competition, when you can also look good while you're doing it
An Intense Audio & Visual Experience
Eye strain will be the thing of the past with this ASUS notebook's anti-glare matte screen. The display also has a wide viewing angle to reduce the dead zone and helps to improve visibility during gaming, particularly in dark environments. The built-in subwoofer and SonicMaster audio technology ensure a rich and powerful experience that will ward off challengers
Incredible Thermal Efficiency
This ASUS notebook packs a massive performance punch, which needs to be kept cool. The dual fan filter system enables you to keep your system running cooler and quieter for a long period of time. The unique, intelligent thermal design improves power and thermal efficiency by exhausting hot air from the back of the machine, enabling you to leave the competition battling for survival in your wake

Windows 8

The New Start Screen
Windows 8 introduces a new Start screen, which has all the information you need in one place. The traditional Windows desktop screen has been replaced with a more tablet style design featuring tiles. These tiles are customizable to your liking as well as update in real time. News, weather forecasts, sports, contacts, apps and more are available for you to use. It's all right there on the Start screen. If you prefer the traditional Start screen of Windows 7, you have the option to switch to it
To the Cloud
With Windows 8, you'll be able to bring all your personalized Start screen with you by signing into your Microsoft account. When signed in using your Microsoft account, you'll have instant access to your own Start screen, themes, language preferences, browsing history and browser favorites. You can also connect to your services as well, such as Microsoft Outlook, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter and more
Windows Store
In the Windows Store, you can search for or browse thousands of apps. Choose from the featured apps or grab one of the most frequently downloaded apps to see what all the hype is all about. You can also see how other people rate apps. For certain apps, you can try it out before you buy it so you can make sure you absolutely want an app before you spend your hard-earned money on it

            Got this to replace an old HP DV9 - the hinge cracked on that. This Asus does everything it claims, so I'll just point out a few nit-picks that don't add up to a deal-killer. I've already watched 3D movies, so a laptop that can do that is awesome.1. It doesn't have a remote control like the HP does. I'll miss being able to adjust track and volume when listening to material with the lid closed.2. The mouse takes some re-learning. It minimizes windows and freezes at apparently random moments, but I think that's because my other fingers got too close. Also, since it is left-of-center, using my right hand to scroll is problematic.3. The illuminated keyboard has spots of light between the rows of keys. They cause glare in my glasses! This problem vanishes if you look straight down at it, like when it is in your lap. But I use it on a table...4. When listening to music in the dark, lid closed, the drive, battery, caps-lock and num-lock indicators are way too bright!. They light up the room!5. Huge power supply. I used the HP on airplanes. I don't know if the Asus will be as useful in that environment.6. Volume too low. It has good sound quality, but in a room with central air circulation (not a lot of noise) I could barely hear the movie dialog at full volume.7. I wish I'd known the non-glare screen version was available for only about $[$]more! That should be a no-brainer! I didn't know, so I have the reflective screen version...

            Amazing laptop - shiny screen

                  Comments about ASUS Republic of Gamers G75VW-DH73-3D 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

                  I'm a 3D graphics professional and bought this laptop for 3D work using programs Lightwave, Maya, Max and Zbrush. I previously used a Dell XPS M1710, Alienware MX11 and also a Lenovo T510 at work. Only had the G75VW for a couple of weeks, but, for the most part, already very impressed...best laptop I have owned/used.

                  Pros -
                  Nice solid keyboard
                  Love that cooling exits rear of computer.
                  Display is bright.

                  Cons-
                  Please note that the screen on this 3D version of the G75 is very shiny. This is a big disappointment because the specs list the screen as anti-glare. A co-worker has the non-3D version and the screen has a matte finish...you could use it outside. Not so with the 3D screen. It's a very nice display otherwise.

                  Windows 8 - Overall seems like a disaster. Really wish I could have bought with Windows 7. I use a Wacom tablet and found out that Windows 8 has some issues that prevent the Wacom from working correctly. There are some workarounds but nothing that completely fixes the issues yet.

                  Warranty - The Asus ROG forums have lots of complaints concerning poor warranty service. Long turnaround times and repeat returns without solutions. Hopefully I don't need to use the service. Always had great warranty service on previously owned Dell/Alienware laptops.

                  I am not a gamer but a small business owner and I wanted a powerful computer to cover all the bases. This one fit the bill without going crazy on price. I needed something that could handle everyday work stuff and also handle picture and video editing for my website. I also had to have a SSD drive for speed and a larger HDD for storage. This is a much safer and faster combo with less chance of having problems. Windows 8 takes some getting used to but seems to work well once you figure things out. Don't have any complaints.
