The black Republic of Gamers G750JZ-DS71 17.3" Laptop Computer from ASUS has a 17.3" widescreen matte 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 GTX 880M graphics card with 4GB of GDDR5 discrete memory.
The system is powered by a quad-core 4th-generation 2.4 GHz Intel Core i7-4700HQ processor. It also has 24GB of DDR3L RAM, a 1TB 7200 rpm hard drive, dual 128GB solid state drives in a RAID configuration for a total of 256GB, a Blu-ray Disc player with CD and DVD burning capabilities, a 2-in-1 media card reader, 10/100/1000 Mbps Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11a/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, an integrated webcam, and microphone. The built-in stereo speakers and subwoofer utilizes ASUS Republic of Gamers AudioWizard technology.
Windows 8.1 (64-bit) is the installed operating system. Windows 8.1 improves the user experience of Windows 8 with several additions and changes. The Start button returns, but has two limited core functions. A left click takes you to the redesigned Start screen featuring tiles that update in real-time. A right click brings up an advanced menu where you can access the Device Manager, Control Panel and more. You will also be able to boot directly to the traditional desktop screen instead of the Windows 8.1 Start screen. Windows 8.1 provides a unique user experience that differs from previous versions of Windows.
