How much memory is on drive C ? Apr 12, 2014
Drive 1 comes partitioned in 5 partitions. 100mb system partition (done by windows), a 900MB OEM partition, two free-space partitions of about 109 GB in size (which I combined into a C drive with a size of 217.37GB) and an additional 20GB OEM partition. Drive 2 comes with two free-space partitions roughly 465GB in size (which I also combined). So when you boot it up for the first time, you have 4 lettered drives, sizes being 109GB, 109GB, 465GB, and 465GB. As I said I combined partitions so my drive C is 217GB and my drive D is 931GB.
The GTX 880m on this has 4GB of VRAM and the system itself has 4GB integrated. The integrated graphics card is simply a shared memory of your system's RAM and is usually very bad for gaming. Also similar to SLI and Crossfire, this does not mean there is 8GB of VRAM and a matter of fact, they do not work at the same time. It will switch to the Integrated graphics card when doing low graphic processes like flash games or youtube and will switch (Unless you manually change it in the settings) when you play more high end games such as Skyrim. TL;DR This model of the GTX 880m has 4GB of memory on this computer.
Description above says it has a 1TB 7200rpm drive. But in the details and comparison table, the same model lists it as 5400 rpm. Which is right? May 19, 2014
1TB at 7200RPM for this particular model.
Will this laptop work ok with a wireless Fios? Or should it have a cable? Im new to this and looking to upgrade. Thanks! May 13, 2014
As Raman said, it should work fine. Just FYI, this laptop also comes with software called Killer Network Manager that monitors and (it claims) optimizes your wireless use.
What is grainy? The screen? Then, no. It is a matt screen but very decent to work with.
Is this the ultimate Asus ROG? I'm looking for the most powerful "flagship" ROG laptop, is this it? May 21, 2014
No, it's the ASUS ROG G750JZ-XS72 17.3-inch Gaming Laptop, GeForce GTX 880M Graphics, which is about $500 more. Only difference is the memory is maxed out at 32GB (DS71 has 24GB) and the hard drive config comes as 1TB 7200RPM and 2x 256GB M.2 SSD (DS71 has 2x 128GB M.2 SSD).
Are any other owners having trouble with charging their G750JZ battery to 100%. Even after being plugged in for multiple hours? Apr 23, 2014
Yeah man I noticed that too but not consistently. So sometimes it was like 95%. I just checked it and now it is at 99%. I don't know but I suspect a software feedback problem where it "thinks" it is isn't charged. I just can't imagine that many people have batteries that physically "refuse" to be charged to 100 percent, that'd just be too weird. Still, I love this machine. Did you have any other problems? So far mine has worked like a dream.
