The system is powered by a quad-core 4th-generaton Haswell 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7-4700HQ processor. It also has 12GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L RAM, a 750GB 7200 rpm hard drive, a SuperMulti DVD burner, a 2-in-1 media card reader, 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam and microphone.

Windows 8 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.
This ASUS notebook imposes its will on other gaming notebooks with its powerful yet low voltage Intel Core i7-4700HQ processor. Its quad cores can run at 2.4 GHz and up to 8 threads. It can also be overclocked up to 3.4 GHz, thanks to Intel Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. The 12GB of 1600 MHz DDR3L 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 competitive multiplayer 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 765M graphics processing unit (GPU). It has an enormous 2GB of dedicated memory just for rendering graphics. Jagged edges and screen tearing will be a thing of the past because the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 765M provides smooth visual effects and stunning 1080p quality
High Quality Sound
Developed by the ASUS Golden Ear team, the exclusive SonicMaster sound technology comprises bigger speakers and larger resonance chambers to deliver more powerful sound and deeper bass. It also uses software to fine-tune the audio output, adapting to diverse applications and usage types. The intuitive and friendly MaxxAudio interface helps you take charge of what your G750 sounds like, with flexible settings for different needs. You could also opt to use one of five audio modes based on content or application. The G750 also comes with an onboard headphone amplifier which channels extra power to the headphone output so that personal sound doesn't come across flat and tinny. With the extra amp, headphones perform to their full potential with improved clarity and sound range
High Velocity Networking
Online gaming requires a fast and consistent Internet connection. Lag and other latency issues will make multiplayer games unplayable. That's why the G750 supports the 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard, which is much faster than 802.11n. The G750 also works with 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi networks as well. If you absolutely need a stable connection, you can use the 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet RJ-45 jack for the more reliable Internet access. There's also Bluetooth 4.0 support so you can use a Bluetooth-compatible wireless keyboard or mouse
Inspired by a stealth fighter, this ASUS notebook provides advanced design and high build quality. The advanced thermals and gamer friendly design will keep you immersed. The spacious, adjustable and back-illuminated one-piece keyboard with soft-touch palm rest and isolated arrow keys will allow you to keep gaming without cramping up. The tactile scissor-feet touchpad buttons offer improved response and durability. The touchpad itself utilizes multi-touch gesture support for easy navigation and input in Windows 8
High-end performance requires adequate cooling and the G750 uses dual rear-venting fans that quickly remove heat from core components to verify stability and endurance. In addition to lowering temperatures dramatically, the thermal design promotes your comfort, as heat is driven out the back of the notebook. Likewise, the dual fans are quiet and even the little sound they emit is barely audible to you as it's also directed away from the front of the notebook
Exclusive ASUS Republic of Gamers Super Hybrid Engine II power management technology brings you the responsiveness of a 2-second instant on resume from sleep mode. Get back into your game without delay. Plus, you can enjoy up to 14 days of standby time with automatic data backups should the battery drop below 5%. Please note that battery life may vary depending on usage

Keep files in sync automatically so you can share photos and video online with family and friends or stream music and movies wirelessly. The G750 comes with 32GB of free lifetime WebStorage and you can add more at any time

To the Cloud
