ROG G701 is a portable and stylish gaming laptop that's engineered for incredible gaming performance. Overclockable NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics gives it the potential to go toe-to-toe with even the most hardcore of all gaming laptops. With ROG G701, you have the firepower to dominate the battlefield. G701 is also powered by an overclockable Intel Core i7 K-series processor to deliver desktop-grade gaming performance. And it doesn't stop there. Compared to other GeForce GTX 980 laptops, G701 is remarkably slender at just 1.4 inches thin. Extreme performance, exceptional style and enviable portability — G701 has everything you need to dominate at your next LAN party! Its NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980 graphics card delivered a 3D Mark 11 test score that was 20% higher than that of the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980M graphics card. When overclocked, ROG G701 gains a further 17% boost for incredible desktop-grade gaming performance. ROG G701 has an anti-ghosting keyboard with 30-key rollover technology so up to 30 keystrokes can be instantaneously and correctly logged, even when you hit several of them at once. ROG G701 features NVIDIA G-SYNC display technology which synchronizes its display's refresh rate with its graphics card for ultra-smooth visuals. G-SYNC helps avoid lag, minimizes frame-rate stutter, and eliminates visual tearing. It delivers the smoothest and fastest gaming graphics — all without affecting system performance! ROG G701 has four DDR4 slots to support up to 64GB DDR4 RAM. 2400MHz DDR4 RAM gives you up to 20% more performance and 30% more energy efficiency over 1600MHz DDR3 RAM.

Let's start with the positives:
- Although it has many plastic components, the build quality of the components and finishes is high, as it should be at this price. There is absolutely no chassis flex whatsoever, and only minimal screen flex. The screen offers smooth but firm resistance when opened and doesn't jiggle back and forth once set.
- While the design is more understated than earlier Asus ROG designs, even non-techy people recognize it as something special. A mildly tech-savvy co-worker commented on how "sweet" my new laptop was. Without knowing the price, he also said "It looks expensive, probably too expensive for me", and estimated it's cost at "many thousands" of dollars.
- The performance is excellent. I won't rehash all the specs and performance benchmarks here, but suffice to say, if you are looking for a laptop capable of driving a 4k screen, virtual reality glasses, high end gaming, or video editing this is an excellent machine.
- It has REAL mouse buttons. None of that "virtual-button" or "clickable touch pad" silliness.
- It is equipped with a USB -C port.
- The keyboard is glorious! Among the best laptop keyboards I have used. The keys have excellent feedback, plenty of travel and an good spacing and layout between keys. There are also built-in macro keys. A joy to type on!
So by now your probably wondering why I gave it two stars. Here's why:
- It is not adequately cooled. I cannot over-stress this point. It is absolutely unacceptable for a modern computer being marketed as a high performance machine to have inadequate cooling. On this point, I believe my particular unit may be defective. I am seeing CPU temperatures over 100c while web browsing. That is not normal. The problem is so pronounced that it causes the computer to randomly shut down. This renders the computer unusable for important work, because you never know when it's going to shut down on you.
- ASUS "VIP" (LOL, yeah right!) customer support can't be bothered to respond to e-mails regarding the issue stated above. 4 days after contacting ASUS... still no response.
- The "Sonic Bass Woofer" was completely dead on arrival. It never worked, not even a single time. The problem appears to be hardware related.
- Battery is not user replaceable, so you can't swap in freshly charged batteries. (technically you can replace it, but it requires tools and major disassembly)
- While on battery power, graphics performance falls off a cliff. I had very realistic expectations. I didn't expect it to handle even light games while on battery power, but I did expect it to present a PowerPoint presentation smoothly. Even with the power plan set at "high performance" and with no other programs running, it still struggled to smoothly render simple transitions. I was honestly shocked at how poor the performance became. Perhaps this is also a one off problem with my particular unit. Disappointing, to say the least.
- I knew this going in, but it bears repeating... This is a heavy hulking laptop. at nearly 10 pounds, this isn't something your going to fling around like a tablet. If you want to travel with it, it will take planning. Nothing sleek or slim about it. It's designed to live on a desk.
So overall, A competent machine with a few issues. Admittedly, my unit may be defective. So, either the design is deficient or the quality control and internal assembly process is shoddy. With no response from ASUS, I'm left with little choice... It's going back. However, I have lost confidence in this model. Sure, I could get a replacement, but there is no guarantee that it won't have the same issues. Sad, I really expected better from ASUS and the ROG line.
Update: I finally received an e-mail from Asus CS. It was like the agent didn't even read my description of the problem. The agent suggested that I update the Intel drivers. However in my initial description of the problem, I specifically stated that I had already updated to both the Intel drivers and the BIOS firmware before contacting Asus. The Nvidia drivers were up to date.
The sad thing is that before this I was very pleased with ASUS in general and had only good things to say about the ASUS ROG Swift Curved PG348Q Gaming Monitor and prior ROG laptops I have purchased.
There was an issue with the Vive where the laptop's HDMI connector was not sending any signal to the Vive, to fix this all I needed to do was to bypass the Vive's "Link Box" and plug the HDMI cord directly into the laptop and it worked flawlessly.
Another issue I had with the laptop was that the keyboard would not register the first keystroke; to fix this all I needed to do was to update the keyboard's firmware using ASUS's own drivers found on the support page for the laptop. When I first ran the tool to update the firmware it failed and the keyboard stopped working completely. I had to use a USB keyboard to log back in to the laptop then I ran the firmware updater as an administrator and it finally updated successfully then the keyboard came back to life solving both issues so far.
There is only one thing that I have not been able to solve, although a minor annoyance it's still enough to be an issue. If you close the laptop you will not be able to use any touchpad gestures, this includes scrolling so it is pretty annoying, if anyone has found a fix for this please let me know. (I have found a solution for this. See https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?93026-Temporary-fix-for-the-touchpad-bug-on-G752VS this thread.)
I have seen others saying that this laptop gets hot and then thermal throttles but I haven't had that yet, maybe if I were to OC the CPU a TON it will but I have been able to run ALL games fine without OCing. However, the people saying that the laptop corners where your arms rest is sharp are correct, but it's not a good reason to overreact or not buy this laptop for.
The laptop is a bit on the heavy side but that's to be expected for a machine with a desktop grade GPU (the 1070). Don't expect it to be the most mobile laptop, you will want a carrying case or maybe even a backpack.
Also after buying this laptop remember to uninstall (not all) but some of the pre-installed bloatware.
That's all I can think of for now if I think of anything else I'll try to update this review, maybe I'll do some FPS testing with some new games like PUBG.
I didn't pay attention to the people who were having issues with this computer, but I wish I had.
Mine doesn't even have 3 months of use, and it stopped working from one day to the next. It shuts down on its own seconds (or minutes if you are lucky) after it boots up. No game playing, just normal logging into Windows. There is no overheating, as the computer is fresh from not being used and it still turns off.
Reading on the internet there seem to be a ton of people having issues with this computer. It seems you have to really make advanced tweaks to get the computer to work consistently without any problems. Not worth it.
I bought it during a trip to the US and their limited International Warranty means I cannot fix it where I am reside. I would need to ship it to the US, have it fixed, and then ship it back to me. However, there are also several people complaining that even after sending in the computer, it's really not fixed. I cannot risk investing too much more in this computer and not have it work the way it should.
