Asus unveiled its latest Republic of Gamers notebook, the G750, at Computex 2013 in Taipei. The G750 is the updated version of the Asus G75VW, which received an Editor’s Choice award from NotebookReview in June 2012.
The 17-inch Asus G750 comes equipped with a 4th generation Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 700M series GPU. Asus claims the cooling system in the G750 lends to its unobtrusive fans, but NotebookReview couldn’t fully attest to this while trying it out in a crowded conference room. NBR did note, however, that the system remained cool while testing out Metro: Last Light. Issues did arise with the graphics card, but it is difficult to make any claims to hardware since Asus had a pre-production model on display.
Asus updated the speakers on the G750 with SonicMaster audio tech and a feature called AudioWizard that uses different modes for various gaming genres. NBR was able to get a feel for the audio using headphones; it was a noteworthy experience albeit on the louder side, however, users will be able to tailor the output to their liking. As far as speaker quality, not much can be said due to the loud nature of the show room floor.
Beyond the graphics and audio, the roomy touchpad and Chiclet-style keyboard offered a comfortable user experience and the full HD display with matte finish was unaffected by the fluorescent lighting. In terms of size, the notebook is heavy but the design is solid and durable. The G750 features an HDMI input, an Ethernet port, a mini DisplayPort, inputs for VGA, DVD/Blu-ray compatibility, two 3.5mm audio jacks, and four USB 3.0 ports.
First impressions indicate the machine will live up to its predecessor but there is no word yet on a launch date or price. Once it does launch, NBR expects to have a full review of the Asus G750.
