ASUS ROG G751JT-CH71 17.3 inch Laptop Review
Aluminium finish with an illuminated ROG logo black Asus G751JT with F-22 Raptor-inspired lines looks beautiful, weighs 8.4 pounds with dimensions of 12.50 x 16.40 x 0.90 inches- so it is not a very portable laptop but more of a decent desktop replacement. It has a one piece seamless brightness adjustable red backlit ergonomic easy to use keyboard with programmable macro keys to have convenient access to game recording and frequently used commands and quick-access game keys and a touchpad that feels comfy and works very well unlike on many other machines. Some of its connectivity options include DL DVD/RW/CD-RW optical drive, advanced 802.11ac wireless, Bluetooth 4.0, 4 x USB 3.0 ports, an HDMI 1.4 port (G751 supports 4K2K HDMI output to connect to screens better than FHD), Mini DisplayPort 1.2 (and you can output to up to three screens at once using the Trinity Display- doing three things simultaneously). The two blocks at the bottom make the machine easier to use on a desk but a bit uncomfortable on your lap- both a design pro and a con.

Conclusion: ASUS ROG G751JT-CH71 is a great mobile- desktop replacement gaming machine that is fast and powerful and that comes with unique features. It is easy on the eyes with its great design, is thicker than some other much more expensive gaming machines but you will not find many very powerful gaming laptops out there that are also slim. What we have here is the overall performance of Intel i7-4710HQ with a Passmark benchmark score of 7970, 16GB of system memory and the graphics power of GeForce GTX 970M with a score of 3470 on the day of this review- really good for a laptop. It works very quietly and stays cool thanks to the copper heat sinks and dual independent CPU and GPU fans and the way it expels the heat through the rear. Keyboard is very comfortable to use and the ROG key allows you easy access to the Gaming Centre dashboard.

It comes with a fast 1TB HDD at 7200rpm but you can replace this with or add SSD for snappier performance and quicker boot-up purposes and doesn’t look like it would be hard to do. Be careful with uninstalling some of the bloatware because although they are not necessary for the functioning of the machine, certain special keys may become obsolete. Battery life is only up to 4 hours from its lithium ion battery but we’re talking about serious power and graphics performance here. It is offered with a 1 year Accidental Damage Protection for accidental spills, drops, fire damage and power surges and 30 days zero bright dot guarantee by the manufacturer. So the Asus ROG G751JT is a computer we definitely recommend despite its minor flaws- good value for dollar.
