Con: Some bugs with the sound system where the subwoofer doesn't turn off until the lowest decibel. The resting pad is changed into a foamy texture instead of the soft rubber texture from G74x. This version comes with only 12 Gb instead of 16 Gb, but you have an easy access slot for expand. There are 2 hard drives but they are both partitioned giving you 4 smaller hard drives, not sure why they did that. 3D function is great but it turns down the screen resolution when in use and makes your backlit keyboard into a strobe light. Kinda wish they had one of the hard drive for loading OS as SSD.
Conclusion: This is a great machine, you will like it if you can afford it. The 3D function is the key here, so if you don't really care for that, go with the G75vw-DS72. It is a faster computer for $100 less.
I bought this from Amazon. The box included the following:
2. Laptop Bag
3. 1 pair of Nvidia 3D vision glasses (3D vision emitter is built into the laptop). Glasses comes with a soft material pouch to store it in and keep it from getting dust. You may need a hard case to protect it if you want to travel with it in your bag!
4. Manuals and driver CD
5. Soft cloth to wipe laptop screen. 3D glasses also came with a cloth to keep it clean.
6. Power adaptor - As other people have mentioned - this is pretty big. It also gets hot so be sure to place it in a safe spot where you won't touch it and keep it away from surfaces that might be damaged by heat.
7. Gaming mouse
As mentioned by others, there are 2x 750 GB hard drives running at 7200 RPM. There are 4 partitions across these 2 hard drives. I was considering swapping out one of the hard drives with an SSD drive for booting and games but after using the laptop for the past 2 months I found that there doesn't seem to be any noticeable hard drive lag. I mostly play "The Lord of the Rings Online" and haven't experienced hard drive lag. My home PC definitely benefitted from an SSD upgrade but I'd say this laptop has performance comparable to my PC even with just the 7200 RPM hard drives in it.
Others may get more mileage with an SSD upgrade depending on the games being played etc. For me, I'll hold off on an SSD upgrade since the laptop seems to be pretty fast as is!
The laptop comes with 1 month of McAfee Internet Security (subscription automatically activated on first boot).Read more ›
it is almost 2 years now and my laptop has not been fixed yet. this is the last time i am sending my laptop because the cost of box and fuel is costing me more then my laptop. :( (i have spend about 200+ in boxes and fuel)
i finally called up Asus headquarters, talked to someone who was in the "resolve issue department" he told me the same spill "send it the computer and they will fix it. so i sent my computer once again! and lets see what happens..
fyi, they did offer me a replacement laptop which was worth half the price and slower then the computer i had so i rejected the offer because i paid hard earn money on this.
i basically have given up with asus, i wouldn't recommend to anyone who is planning to buy this
i have sent the laptop for repair atleast 4 times now. now they finally claimed (after a year and a half) that the laptop is not repair-able and they would exchange it. think twice before buying anything from asus!!!. (even though they pay for shipping through fed-ex, they wouldnt provide the box and fed-ex will always charge for a box $25 x4 because they wouldn't let me re-use the box. either way i have moved to alienware laptop now and currently selling this laptop
i have own this laptop for over a year now (its still under warranty). i got this as a desktop replacement.
anyways what is horrible about this laptop is that it is shutting down every single day. i would say it will shutdown randomly at least once a day (even while surfing internet)
i have contacted customer service many times, they normally ask your laptop back and claim "they fixed it" (which is basically re-installing windows). after the laptop is sent back to me..Read more ›
