The Republic of Gamers G75VX-DS72 17.3" Notebook Computer from ASUS houses the power of a tricked out desktop gaming PC in one portable notebook computer. This ASUS notebook redefines the term "mobile gaming." Full resolution graphics, consistent frames per second (fps) and high definition multimedia are compacted into a notebook which allows you to dominate the competition while on the go.

This ASUS notebook has a 17.3" Full HD widescreen display that is backlit with LED lamps, which brighten faster, use less power and provide better picture quality than their CCFL counterparts. The screen has a true 16:9 aspect ratio, which is also the standard of HDTVs. The Full HD 1920 x 1080 native resolution is supported by an NVIDIA GeForce GT 670MX with 3GB of discrete memory.

The system is powered by a quad-core Ivy Bridge 2.4GHz Intel Core i7-3630QM processor. It also comes with 16GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM, a 750GB 7200rpm hard drive, a 256GB solid state drive, a Blu-ray player with DVD burning capabilities, 10/100/1000Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam and microphone. The built-in stereo speakers are also accompanied by a built-in subwoofer.

Windows 8 (64-bit) is the installed operating system. Windows 8 replaces the traditional Start menu with a redesigned Start screen. The Start screen features tiles, which provide notifications in real-time. Windows 8 also focuses more on cloud storage as well as apps, which can be downloaded from the Windows Store. Windows 8 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.

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 GT 670MX 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 GT 670MX graphics card provides smooth visual effects and stunning 1080p quality
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
High Speed Thunderbolt Technology
Combining PCI Express and mini DisplayPort in one consolidated connection and cable, Thunderbolt allows for data and video transmission at up to 10Gbps, which is twice the rate of USB 3.0. Fast speeds are sustained bi-directionally, and with the added bandwidth the entire system gains in responsiveness. It's also designed for multiple devices at once, so up to six can be daisy-chained to one connector. For gamers, every speed boost is a major plus, and Thunderbolt data rates mean external displays and storage hook up to the G75VX with no compromise on quality, fidelity or performance
Solid State Drive
Combining a mechanical hard drive with a solid state drive cache creates solid state hybrid storage, which is the best of both worlds. You get a large hard drive with generous storage room as well as a high speed SSD to accelerate operating system tasks and other frequent activities. A perfect balance of space and speed, with support for RAID 0 and 1, this G75VX allows you to get up to twice the read/write speeds on both the hard drive and SSD components, taking performance even further
An Intense Audio & Visual Experience
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

      Comments about ASUS Republic of Gamers G75VX-DS72 17.3" Notebook Computer (Black):

      I do not play games, but bought this one because it was set up for maximum performance with graphic software. It does not mean much to say that a new computer is better than any of the older ones, but I think the quality of this machine transcends the quality inflation that applies to all computers. Company support was great when I wanted to upgrade the SSD, it is free of the obnoxious proprietary operating systems and other software that incapacitate the bigger name brands, it boots up in 9 to 12 seconds, no matter what job I give it, I am the slow step, not the machine! This model is now obsolete but go get the current equivalent- it will be your best decision ever!

            Not 5 stars because of the hassles of Windows 8, an OS with an identity problem. The laptop is great so far. Haven`t played games on it yet, but great screen, good keyboard. As usual, great service by B&H. I`m happy.
