General Features

144 Hz G-Sync Display

NVIDIA G-Sync technology syncs the display's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate output to reduce screen tearing and ghosting. Combined with a 144 Hz refresh rate, which helps to eliminate stuttering and jitters, you'll be able to enjoy smooth gameplay and react instantly to your game. The display also supports wide viewing angles and 72% NTSC gamut coverage.

Integrated XBox Module

It's time to break boundaries between gaming platforms. The G703 has exclusive Xbox features to offer a combination of computing power and gaming console-like convenience. The integrated Xbox Wireless module lets you connect up to eight Xbox One controllers without the need for an external USB dongle, while the Xbox hotkey fires up the Xbox Game bar, so you're ready to record and broadcast gameplay, or hook up with friends on Xbox Live across Xbox One, Windows 10, tablets, and smartphones. You can even play Xbox Play Anywhere digital titles on either Xbox One or Windows 10 at no additional cost. Your progress, including all save points, add-ons and achievements, goes with you.

Windows 10

Start Menu

After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.

Cortana

Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana, can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the Internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Laptop, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information-gathering skills.

Microsoft Edge

After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.

Windows Store

For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.

Windows Continuum

Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.

Xbox on Windows 10

Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.

Windows 10 Pro

The Pro version of Windows 10 includes all of the features of Windows 10 Home plus many designed specifically for businesses users, including Hyper-V virtualization, BitLocker disk encryption, and remote desktop access. Devices will also be able to join domains and the Azure Active Directory, and they can even access a specialized version of the Windows Store featuring custom, company-specific applications.

ASUS G703GI Reviews

Amazing Laptop With Some Flaws

By Erik
Rated 3 out of 5
Date: 2018-12-27

Buyer beware I bought this laptop earlier this month and the model I received only has 256 gb of storage instead of 512 gb as shown on this page. Checked the packaging box to find that it only has 1 main ssd of 256 gb. Talked to customer service regarding this issue, they said they will update the page so that it won’t affect the next customer for the misleading information provided. Checked back today as I’m writing this review and they still have the 512 gb shown. So, if any of you interested in buying this model, make sure they can and will deliver the 512 gb not the 256 gb like my case. In addition, I don’t know what’s going on with Asus quality control lately but my model has terrible coil whine coming from the cpu. It’s really annoying when operating the computer in quiet place. Did my research and found out it’s common issue with 8th gen processor on Asus ROG laptops to have coil whine. All of my Asus gaming laptops I bought in the past always been flawless. Okay aside from all the negative aspects from this laptop, all I can say I’m very happy with the performance of it. I hooked it up with the gaming monitor 2560x1440 and it’s a blast playing any kind of games with good playable fps with all the settings mostly on ultra/very high. The gsync, gtx 1080, good cooling and cpu are the only reason why I bought this model. In addition to that, the price is very reasonable for a powerful gaming laptop. Had it doesn’t have those issues mentioned, I will be so happy to give it 5 stars instead of 3.
